What is a Mystery Quilt?

A mystery quilt is a new design that is introduced in tiny increments. The participants follow the designer's instructions without knowing what the final quilt will look like.

I enjoy making my mystery quilts with detailed written instructions as well as accompanying YouTube videos that give instructions on the techniques involved.They are appropriate for quilters of all abilities.

Fair isle
2023 Mystery Quilt

You are invited to participate in my 2023 Mystery Quilt event, entitled "Fair Isle".

Put your hand in mine and I’ll lead you through this fun project which will result in a dazzling quilt - you choose the size, either 61" x 61" wall hanging/throw OR 91" x 91" Queen. This brand new original pattern consists of small squares and rectangles, and the mystery of the final design will be revealed in tiny steps.

I’ve broken the pattern into 24 small, manageable sections and will be emailing these "clues" to participants three times a week for 8 weeks. Included will be Youtube videos demonstrating the skills required. The first clue will arrive on March 27 and the last on May 19. Follow my lead and your stunning quilt top will be revealed soon after the last email arrives.


Variations on a Melody

Set on a checkerboard background, twenty-four different variations of the center block float off the edges of this quilt. 


Walk a Mile

"Before you judge a man, walk a mile in his shoes"

This throw-sized row quilt symbolizes multiple paths through life. 


5 Shades of Gray

Five shades of gray on white with a splash of color makes a dynamic statement.
