Follow the adventures of Patches the Dolphin as you sew this Mystery Quilt, designed specially for the 2006 Quilt Expo. One-by-one the clues will add to the tale and also take you step-by-step through making four large easy blocks, their sashing and two borders. When Patches' story is through, you’ll have a 53" x 57" square quilt top, perfect for a lap quilt, baby quilt or table topper.

Supply List
A good way to choose your colors is to pick a big, colorful print that you like, and use that for the outside border. Then choose the colors for the rest of the quilt from ones used in the print. Directional prints are not recommended.

Background: ... 1 ¼ yards
... 4 strips 2 ¼" x Width of fabric (WOF)
... 8 squares 4 ½" x 4 1/2"
Color A - includes inside border: (This is what you will see the most) ... 1 1/3 yards
... cut 4 strips 2 ¼" x WOF
Color B: a good place for a bright or accent color! ... 2/3 yard
... cut 8 squares 4 ½" x 4 1/2"
Outside Border: 1 yard
FABRIC OPTION: if you have a special picture-print that could be fussy-cut into 6" (finished size) squares, you could use it in this quilt. It could be the same as the outside border (buy an extra 1/4 yard) or something different. If you want to use some of those little batik picture squares, bring them to class and learn how!
Bring ALL the fabric to class, even the scraps from pre-cutting. That's just to get started!

Other Supplies
... A sewing machine you know how to use, and all the needed cords & controls
... Neutral color thread (please wind 1 or 2 bobbins before class)
... Rotary cutting equipment: mat, cutter, rulers (a 6 1/2 " square will be especially helpful. A 6" x 12" ruler or similar size is good for cutting longer strips)
... Scissors, seam ripper, other sewing supplies you like to use
... Pencil
... Some people like to bring a seat cushion!

To finish your quilt, but not needed in class:
... About 3 1/2 yards for backing
... 1/2 yard for binding
... Approximately 60" square of batting
... To make an approximately 53" x 71" rectangle (2 additional blocks): You will need about 1/3 yard more of each fabric.
