Mystery A 12 - Dakota Inspired - Announcement




 Mystery A12

 is in the finishing stages.....

originally I was going to post Fabric requirements in January and start mid February - but since National Sew Day is February 6th....

And a TON of us are stitching someplace, or virtually..... 

I am now thinking that I will post Fabric requirements on Wednesday February 17th 
The first Clue will be March 3rd - so that gives you two weeks to get your fabrics together!!

I'll give you a few hints:

  • It will be a 4 color quilt....
  • It will finish in the 60 ish x 80ish range 
  • The clues will be manageable for a max sewing time of 2 hours each week.  ( And that is MAX - none of them actually take that long)
  • You do not need any specialty rulers - a straight edge is enough.
I design these quilts to be used as Quilts of Valor .  I know that not all of you do QOV, and donate them to another Military outreach. That is awesome. But if you are making them for your own personal use - would you consider making two and giving one as a Quilt of Valor? 

Now!! If you don't have all the clues to A11 downloaded - please do - I will be removing that tab at the top of the blog and replacing it with A12....   Gotta stay organized you know?

( I know - who am I kidding - I am creative not organized... haha)

Well, I guess since you are posting on my birthday (March 3), I have to do this quilt! Perfect size range.

Hmm... Tempting me with a new mystery, are you?!

I’ll be at a retreat the week of the first clue; seems like a good reason for a new project to me

Right up my alley. All I make are QOVs. So enthused to start.

Would love to play along this year, I loved the mystery 2 years ago. I'll just have to watch how the clues evolve, I'm determined to get my UFO list whipped into shape!

Susan said...

Oh, I think you are pretty organized AND pretty creative! Thanks for another one to look forward to doing. I have the one from Winter, 2019, almost quilted, and more waiting in the wings. =)

Hey, count me in. I've seen some of your previous QOVs done by members of our QOV group and they are beautiful. Will enjoy the mystery here in East Tennessee.
