Pattern Description:

This Mystery series has six clues and instructions the quilt assembly, each month for six months a clue will be given to make the different patches for the quilt. The assembly will be presented in the seventh month. There are six sizes from which you can choose, lapsize to kingsize, all include a pieced border. Each size uses the same clues, except that the larger the quilt the more patches are needed. The clues are made using my Sewfasst(r) techniques, that involve cutting only squares and/rectangles. These are sewn, diced, sliced and resewn to achieve the needed patch. A wide unpieced border can be added to the pieced center to enlarge the quilt.
