Mystery Quilt Block of the Month

What is a Mystery Quilt? Well... it’s a mystery.   Everyone needs a little mystery in their lives.  Come solve the mystery with us! 

You don’t know what the quilt is going to look like until you receive the last clue.  Each month there will be a new clue or step in making the quilt.  The quilt will be displayed at the end, but by then you will already know what it will look like.   

Each clue and kit will be released on the 5th of each month. 
Beginning January 2012. 
No earlier.  Registration fee includes first months clue and kit.

Block of the Month starts - January 5, 2012
