A MYSTERY QUILT 
BY
KEVIN THE QUILTER


Join me and our Scrap Club in O'Fallon, Missouri for our
Summer Session of:

Scrap Club hosted by
Kevin the Quilter

- One clue a month

- Easy clues

- 4 to 5 clues....(still in the works)

- Clues begin on June 29, 2017

Many informative posts about tidying up your scraps will begin
our mystery this year.
If you have a system that already works for you, WONDERFUL!

I will be sharing my tips for scrap management
along with some things that help me stay on top of 
my scraps and stash.

In my next post, I will be sharing the colors I have used
along with APPROXIMATE yardage amounts.
I wonder if any blues will be used???? HMMMM????
I wonder if there will be any stars?????  HMMM????
(Please understand, this is my first online mystery.....and it uses scraps....
it is almost impossible to share EXACT yardage amounts.)

Let's all just have fun, and not get caught up in perfection!

This mystery will be made using the

already have these in your arsenal of supplies.)



I look forward to sharing this mystery with you all!
Let's use up those scraps!
See you soon!

Thanks for all of the encouragement!
Keep on Quilting!

  1. Sounds intriguing, Kevin, but I just don't do mysteries. I wait for the reveal and then decide if I need to work it into the schedule.
    Tri Recs tools, huh? Did you know those come in a mini size--and I have them (of course I do). : )

  3. Woo hoo Kevin! I have done several quilt alongs but never a mystery so I am looking forward to it! Yes I already have the triangle tools still in the package!!! This will be a perfect opportunity to finally open and use them!!! Would you say this quilt is intermediate? I do not consider myself past an intermediate quilter so hopefully I can keep up!

  4. Kevin, if you are doing this quilt, it has to be fun and scrappy, so I am in. I even own a Tri Recs (unused). Can't wait!

  5. I am currently hosting my third mystery quilt. Like you, I use scraps, so your readers should realize there is nothing to lose! Those who haven't done a mystery before because they are afraid they won't like it, this is the time to go for it. Using up the bits leftover, with little steps once a month allows you to create, have fun, and maybe end up with a treasure. If you don't like it, a charity quilt top is done. But either way, you reduce the scrap pile and that is a good thing. Can't wait to see your design, Kevin!

  6. Squeal! I have never done a mystery quilt, but I am IN on this one for sure! How could I resist this master of ceremonies? I have about given up on scrap organization. In fact, I've decided to throw the contents of all my scrap baskets into clear garbage bags and dump (ah, I mean graciously donate) all of them on my "seven sisters" group at our retreat next weekend.

  12. I think I have half of the tri recs duo. I'll have to check. I know I've never used them before. I did get 2 new blues out of the scrap bin today, and I LOVE stars! Not like I need a new project or anything.....

  15. How exciting my friend! A summer mystery quilt by Kevin. So looking forward to getting my scrappy on!

  16. Yay!!! I am going to have knee surgery later this month, so I hope I can get the first clue cut before standing to cut is uncomfortable!! I was just gifted a bunch of scraps for another quilt and I'll be using them to create both quilts! One thing to do with a quilt top that doesn't turn out like one expects is to use it as a backing for another quilt...that way you get a beautiful two-sided quilt! This will be the first mystery that I actually do as a mystery!
