2023 Mystery Quilts

General Information: 

  • Mystery quilts are sent, one clue at a time, once a week, for 4-6 weeks. 
  • You won’t know what the final quilt looks like until the last clue. 
  • You will get a copy of the complete pattern with the last clue. 
  • All Mysteries are beginner-friendly. 
  • None require special rulers, but I sometimes will demo a special ruler if it would be useful.
  • This year’s Mysteries are mostly scrappy, but you could do “controlled scrappy” by choosing one fabric for the lights or darks in each pattern, or by limiting the color palette. 
  • Mystery Quilts cost $15 each (one-time cost, not per clue) or can be bought with 15 Points. 
  • Charges will appear as Sleeping Cat Creations on your statement.
