Brown Bag Mystery 2020 - Under the Stars




It's that time of year to kick off the annual Brown Bag Mystery Quilt!

Here's how it works - you come in to the shop (or visit us online) to pick out your bag. The bag includes your kit and your cutting instructions. You'll choose your bag based on the fabric tie on the outside - that is your hint as to what style of fabric you're getting. We have kitted batiks, halloween, Tula Pink, Edyta Sitar, and more! You take your bag home and start cutting!

The first clue (sewing instruction) comes out on March 21st - Worldwide Quilting Day. The subsequent clues come out every other Saturday through May 30th. This year we will celebrate our finished Mystery quilts with a reveal day on August 15th. Snacks, friends, and show & tell! One of the funnest parts of the Brown Bag Mystery if you're on social media, is the Facebook Group for those who have bought a bag. It's a fun place to connect with quilters across the continent and pick up some tips and tricks from some pretty savvy quilt shop owners. When a bag is purchased online, we will use that shipping address as the location to mail the clues.

If you'd like to be added to the Facebook group, leave a note in the order with the email address that is associated with your Facebook account. 


This Brown Bag Mystery pattern uses the Perfect Rectangle Ruler from Creative Grids. The Tri Recs Ruler also works, if you already have one in your sewing box!
