WSQ Mystery Quilt
WSQ will be hosting a Mystery Quilt project. For those unfamiliar with mysteries…a supply list of fabric needed is provided. Then, at various intervals, individual clues, as to how to cut and/or sew the pieces are released. No one knows what it will look like until the end…hence the mystery! Even though everyone is using the same pattern, the fabric choices create tops that are all unique.
2022 Local Fairs
The fairs are over and the ribbons have been awarded. Check out the beautiful winning quilts!
