2021 Brown Bag Mystery Quilt

The Mystery reveal has already passed, but you will still be able to join the group if you'd like for video tutorials.

7 yards of fabric, one gorgeous quilt. You'll have to take our word for it, because it's a mystery!

Imagine pulling out your own expertly coordinated bundle of fabrics and sewing along with the companionship and help of quilters and owners of approximately 50 shops. You are sure to make a beautiful quilt at the end of the process.

Carefully curated fabrics have been selected by Amy to work well for the pattern, and a hint is given in the bit of one of the included fabrics attached to each bag. Like it, and everything else  in the bag works with it. Inside your bag, you will find Cutting Instructions to get you started. There's plenty of time to prep and stitch this mystery. The private Facebook group opens February 1st to share your fabrics, ask cutting questions, and meet other participants from across America and into Canada. The first clue comes out March 19th and every 2 weeks after that until May 28th and the Facebook group stays open until the next Mystery starts in 2022, approximately a year later.

This year the clues will be supported by detailed videos by our mystery quilt designer herself, Karen Montgomery.

Please enter the number of your bag choice above, or leave it blank for us to choose one! Note: bag numbers and fabrics will change over time, with new pictures posted as needed. Don't forget to click on additional pictures to see all the choices!

No special rulers are needed this year.

To add an optional outer border, you will need 2½ yards for outer border for 74" by 90.5"
