2013 Mystery Quilt


Welcome to NEORQC's 2013 Mystery quilt!

 

Karen Benke and KC Howell of Little Red Quilt House have teamed up to bring you this year's edition of the NEORQC mystery quilt. It promises to be easy enough for beginners while inspiring others to join in the competition.

This mystery quilt is designed to inspire all who love to sew. It is geared toward quilters who are comfortable with basic rotary cutting and piecing techniques. So let's begin.

 

Our quilt is called ...

2013 NEORQC Mystery Quilt!

The name may not be special, but the quilt is. It is entirely pieced and absolutely gorgeous. The mystery will be revealed through 10 installments starting in March. Finished/quilted quilts will be revealed and voted upon at the March 2014 NEORQC Annual meeting. All can enter the competition, but you must be a member to win a prize. Prizes will be awarded in each category.

Each installment will contain a few more clues to help you solve the mystery. There are ten steps, plus the fabric requirements.

Steps will be released approximately four weeks apart.

Should you have any questions contact KC Howell at kchowell@zoominternet.net (please put NEORQC Mystery Quilt in the subject line) or 330-722-8447.
