Mystery Quilt

Our 2nd annual guild mystery quilt will start in February of 2024! The announcement flyer is attached to the December 2023 Newsletter (click here).

Once a week, for 9 weeks this winter, our guild will be releasing clues via email for an intriguing, pieced quilt pattern that is perfect for beginners, but also has enough options to interest the experienced quilter. This year’s finished quilt is designed to be 52” x 52” but there will be instructions included to make it smaller or larger. Sign up starts by emailing mystery@nlcqg.org. Looking forward to quilting along with everyone this winter.
