The Winter Myster Quilt Project is now going on Never to late to join in on the fun...
 Maria Hrabovsky Best describe the group like this:
 
 
We thought we’d have some fun in order to offset the stress sometimes associated with the upcoming holiday season. So, we’ve decided to introduce a short, four-month-long Winter Mystery Quilt, structured in such a way that it’s not too taxing, but still fun and a little mysterious.
As you contemplate the upcoming holidays, think about who might need a quilted gift. Use Maria’s planning guide to help you decide, then get ready. By the beginning of December, you’ll have a lovely quilt ready for someone special and you’ll be able to check at least one name off your list! Note that you can make the table topper set and you’ll be able to check two names off your list! We hope you will join us for this mystery. Go with the flow and have fun!
