Mystery Quilt - Week 1


Cutting Instructions – this is the only week, you will be cutting,

No sewing this week!


You will need 18 baggies for your cut pieces this week.

That is it for Week 1 of the Mystery Quilt. I know this will be a lot of work cutting pieces A through Q, but I think you will be fascinated with the quilt at the end. Join us June 15th when you will move from the cutting board to the sewing machine. Happy cutting! Fabric requirements and full clue schedule can be found in the "Mystery Quilt Project 2020" post.
