Dry Hill Mystery Tour

Anyone ready for a mystery?  Yes, you will like the finished quilt.  It was selected because it fits a very wide range of fabrics, from traditional to modern, printed cottons to flannels to batiks, and is doable by all skill levels.  This first quilt is a total of 6 clues, titled Draft Patches.  This can be six months, six days, or heaven forbid, six years, it’s up to you.


Draft Patches uses five fabrics, finishes either 45” x 62” or 59” x 76” with added border.  (1 ½ yards each of Fabric A and B, ½ yard accent Fabric C, and ¾ yard each of accent fabrics D and E).   You can raid your stash or come by the shop and build a custom kit.  Kit cost is $35 for the throw quilt, or $50 for the quilt with added borders. 


The mechanics are simple.  Month 1 you’ll get the welcome packet which includes cutting instructions and the first clue for the simplest of units.  For this you’ll need to stop by the shop to pick up the welcome packet, see the fabrics used in the model quilt and get any questions answered.  To get the next clue, bring the finished units back to the shop or e-mail a photo and you’ll get the next clue provided to you via e-mail (only).   If you need help with any of the blocks, just let me know.
