Happy New Year, Quiltabulous Friends!
It’s almost time for the Kaffe Fassett Mystery Quilt! Kaffe Fassett is the king of color. I had the pleasure of attending one of his lectures on color a couple of years back and I have several of his books. His prints are SO full of color and deliciousness that I am at times intimidated by them. ALL THE COLOR! ALL THE PATTERN! I’m hoping this mystery quilt experience gets me past all of that. I’m hoping that it teaches me more about color and how better to use it with passion and zeal. I am putting on my student hat for this one!
Want to join me? My friends at Thread Bear Fabrics are hosting it, and you can register with them through January 15th. The mystery kicks off in March.
These links are not affiliate links. I do not get paid anything for sending you Thread Bear. I just really like these folks, and I know they are good people to work with.
These are the fabrics in the dark colorway:
These are the fabrics in the light colorway:
Some deets from Janet and Randy at Thread Bear Fabrics:
This is a 10 month program that starts in March 2018 and ends in December 2018.
The final quilt size will be 82-1/2″ x 82-1/2″ and you choose a “light” or “dark” color option. There is a total of 12 yards for all 10 months/quilt.
Backing is not included. 2-5/8th yards of 108″ fabric is needed for the quilt back.
Cost of the program is $18.95 per month (plus shipping $7.00 for U.S. destinations).
There is a $4.99 registration fee to sign up for the program.
The first month you will receive block instructions on a 5×7 color card and fabrics in a clamshell packaging that is just the right size to store your project in as you receive your new fabric each month. And as a thank you for playing in the Mystery Quilt program, you will receive a freebie – a 10 piece Mystery Kaffe Fat Quarter.
Each following month you will receive the 5×7 color instruction card and the fabrics required to complete the block. Then in December, you will receive the fabric needed to complete the Mystery Quilt, plus binding and a 5×7 color card with final instructions for completing that month as well as putting together the entire quilt and solving the Mystery!
Every Mystery Quilt monthly puzzle adventure package includes a fun “ask” for the chance to win goodies from FreeSpirit!
