Miss Marple's Mystery Quilt

 


Do you love a good mystery?

Join  Robyn Falloon and make Miss Marple's Mystery Quilt.


"If you like to take things bit by bit and love an adventure, this is a great way to join
in some fun in a relaxed, creative way!

Six classes over the year starting 3rd February 2019 (every two months).


This Mystery Quilt can be as scrappy as you like and you can have fun fossicking in
your fabric collection and trying unlikely fabric combinations. OR you may decide to
have a 'theme thing' happening with Kaffe Fassett's, monotones or moderns, or
whatever takes your fancy.


The finished quilt is 75" x 75" but you can make is bigger if you want to, or smaller if
you run out of steam. Whatever you decide will look fabulous!
At each class, you will be given a set task (blocks) which can ideally be completed
before the next session - but no-one is going to be checking up on you!!!
The blocks are suitable for beginners through to advanced and are predominantly
pieced, with some appliqué designs. I can provide you with all the tips to make it
easy and FUN.


AND I will be working away with you so I hope I can keep up!!"


Come along and see if you can solve the mystery………… Robyn
