I had so much fun with our last Mystery Quilt, Quilter's Celebration, that I had to do another!
Our new Mystery, Quilter's Dessert will start Saturday, November 16th, 2013. The quilt might be described as a traditional style with a bit of a contemporary feel.
There are three sizes to choose from: 100" x 100" queen size about $160, a 56" x 98" bed runner, or a 68" x 68" lap or wall quilt, about $105 for either.
Use the beautiful Three Siters Vin du Jour fabrics it was designed in, pick from the alternate fabric choices listed below, or choose your own fabrics with the same color values. (Price will vary with fabric choice.) You'll only need two or three hours most months to complete the steps.
Sherry Hisey, the designer, has step-by-step color instructions which are well written in an entertaining way. She adds interesting facts and stories, and even some recipes! I also add pages with extra tips and photos.
If you're working the mystery with me (Erica) in the store, we'll be meeting each month on the third Saturday (except December) and I'll be revealing a clue and showing you the steps for that month. You'll another clue each month for seven months (if you have to miss a meeting you may pick up your clue), and we'll have a reveal party in September 2014, to show off our Quilter's Dessert quilts! Club fee is $30 for in-store club with meetings.

Below are swatches of the fabrics used in the original Quilter's Dessert Mystery Quilt. These fabrics have been delayed by the manufacturer and are expected to arrive early in November. You may reserve them now by noting which size quilt you would like to make in the Special Instructions box as you complete your order.
Below are swatches of alternate fabric groups that we have selected as possibilities for this year's Mystery. (You may also choose your own from our wide fabric selection. You'll get guidelines to help you after you've signed up for the club.) The first Bali group includes tans, blues and browns. The charm pack we suggest to use with the bali group will be River Rock Bali Snaps (A23603). The next fabric possibility is He Still Loves Me (from Benartex) - this selection has lovely shades of purple. We will be cutting a charm pack to use with this group soon, and you will be updated. The third group, also Bali, includes various earthy rose tones. There will be two available charm packs that can be used with this group, Sunrise Sunset (A16688) and Bali Snap Parfait (A18139).
