Mystery L1 Fabric Requirements!!

Oh boy - I hope you are excited!!
and !  I hope this works!

Since the changes in Craftsy I wasn't 100% sure where or how to upload free patterns - so We are trying google drive.  If for some reason this doesn't work in the morning.... Check back - cuz you know I am messing with it right??

PS - thanks for the feedback!! It works - whoot whoot!!

So here is the link to the PDF ( Fingers Crossed)

L1 Clue 1 ( Fabric Requirements) PDF

and here it is typed out for you... just in case I can't make it do what I want it to do!



L1 Marvelous Mystery Quilt Clue 1

Welcome to the new Mystery! We will learn/practice precision piecing, strip sets, folded corners, block units, organization, and value placement. This is not a difficult quilt, but looks more complicated when done.

Fabric needed:
This quilt will make about a 68” x 80” quilt, bigger if you add an outer border (not included in yardage).
LIGHT:            at least 2 yards of fabric
MEDIUM:       14 fat quarters or 14- ¼ yd. WOF. You can mix ¼ yd WOF and fat quarters, just need 14 different colors
DARK:            12 different 2.5” WOF strips
The values need to be distinct. Any fabric- batiks, florals, prints- but do not have wide variations of value in the individual fabric- like white flowers in a dark or dark print in a medium. You can cut a 2” test window from paper to look the value it would be when cut up.


This quilt was designed by Linda Swanekamp

Alycia’s Notes – I used 14 Mediums in plaid… and am keeping the mediums in Blues ( and maybe a green - it was pretty!!)

Here are my Fabrics:



Would you be interested in doing a Linky Party? Next week we can do a Link up to showcase our fabrics that we will each be using on this mystery? You can link directly to your blog post, or IG post??

I had no problem accessing the file. It was quite easy. Wonder if I have enough fabric to play along....guess I'll be checking my stash over the weekend.

I was able to get the PDF without any problems. Sorry I can't fit your mystery into my schedule this year but I want to keep the directions for future use.
