The mystery quilt will be 60 x76 inches without borders.
Fabric requirements for the mystery quilt include:
Bring fabrics to the first workshop and learn more. Contact Jackie with questions.
- 1-5/8 yd. or 7 fat quarters of dark fabric,
- 3 yds. or 12 fat quarters of medium fabric, and
- 4-1/3 yds. or 18 fat quarters of light fabric (background).
You can add any size border or eliminate the borders. Jackie will happily provide fabric requirements for any size border.
The fabric requirements are generous and should leave room for small errors or substitutions. If you would like it very modern with extra negative space, buy extra background fabric. For a minimalist look, Jackie recommends using only three fabrics. For a scrappier look, use a variety of fat quarters .
The background fabric can certainly be darker than your "dark" fabric, but will be referred to as "light" throughout the pattern.
Construction choices in some months will allow you to make it more traditional or more modern, and the final layout will have these options as well.
*Missed the previous workshops—January (flying geese), February (square in a square), and April (curved piecing)? It's not too late to join as each month's clue and block construction demonstration are independent of each other. The second chance to purchase all block instructions is the November guild meeting when we discuss layout.
