The Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along is finally here! As you may already know, Connecting Threads is offering a Mystery Quilt quilt along to celebrate National Quilt Month in March. You won’t know what the quilt looks like until Part 3! You can read more about the quilt along in the introduction blog post here.
How do I join the quilt along? You may join the Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along Group on Quilt with Us (QWU) or follow along on Notions. Joining QWU, CT's social network website, is free and easy. Many of you, who are already members, have experienced the fun and supportive CT quilting community. Please note, although the pattern installments will be available to download on Notions, Ann will be responding to questions and comments about the pattern for the Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along only on QWU.
If you haven't gathered your fabrics already, download the Fabric Selection Suggestions PDF.
General sewing supplies will suffice. The 20-1/2" square Omnigrip Neon Ruler, that might be helpful for Part 3, is located on our website here.
