“EVQ Web Mystery Quilt”


We hope you will join EVQ’s first Web mystery quilt.  What’s a mystery quilt you ask?  A mystery quilt is a quilting activity in which you do not know what the “pattern” looks like, follow the clues and end up with an amazing quilt.  It’s fun to hear guesses of and we would love those who join in to post what they think it might be on the EVQ Facebook page, or email them to Laura Lowe and they will be posted on the Mystery Quilt webpage.   The quilt will be approximately a throw size.  You can use your stash, scraps or visit your favorite local quilt shop for some new fabrics,

  • The first clue will be the fabric, colors and cutting requirements they will be posted on the web August 15th.
  • The second, third, etc. clues will be posted weekly starting September 1st. The mystery quilt is still being tested as to how many weeks we will need, but we are trying to keep this simple and not drag it out.
  • If you do not have access to the web for the clues, please contact Laura and we can make other arrangements.
  • If you have any questions please contact Laura at Lauralee326@gmail.com
