#20986: Amish/Mennonite Quilt Series: Amish Mystery Quilt
Amish Mystery Quilt: Participants will learn a variety of quilt-making techniques as clue by clue they solve the mysteries of their quilt. This project will be completed in a number of rounds, with each round including stories of Amish mysteries -- tales of lost children, of unexplained events and other curious happenings. Each completed quilt will be unique, based on the choices made step by step as the quilter chooses fabric and patchwork options to unlock the secrets of each section.
