The mystery quilt that I ran for the Country School Quilters is now done. I can't wait to see all of the quilts. I know that a lot of people don't like mystery quilts but maybe, after seeign the final quilt, you might be interested in making one. For you I've consolidated all of the instructions into one PDF file that you can download here. Since this quilt was designed specifically for giving to veterans I've named it Gratitudes.
This green and brown version was my prototype and shows that the pattern will work great in many different color palettes.
Because there are so many seams coming together I pressed all of my seams open on this quilt and because of that I quilted the quilts with an all-over pattern. I avoided any stitch in the ditch.
