Brown Bag Piece of Cake Mystery Kit - Vintage Flora Ground Cover

This kit is for the 2024 Piece of Cake Brown Bag Mystery Quilt. The mystery quilt is approximately 60" x 70" when finished. Your bag contains 6-1/2 yards of fabric! You will receive only the cutting instructions in your kit. The first clue for the mystery will be released on Saturday, March 16th. Clues will be mailed to all customers. While you're waiting for your printed copy of the clue to arrive in the mail, you'll have the option of watching a video of the clue in a private Facebook group that we organize for all of the mystery quilt participants. Instructions for joining this private Facebook group will be included with your kit. Clues will be released and mailed every two weeks after that. There are five clues in the mystery. The kit includes the fabric for the quilt top with enough extra fabric for a scrappy binding and possibly some scrappy pieced borders. The pattern will be delivered in the form of the clues mailed in March, April and May. Mailing of the clues is included with your purchase at no additional charge. Backing is not included and must be purchased separately. 3.75 yards of backing will be needed. Fabrics that would make good border or backing options for this quilt are shown in the Suggested Products area below. Other border, binding and backing options may be available. Call 218-844-5260 to inquire about other options. The amount of fabric needed for backing would need to be increased if you plan to add additional borders to your quilt. The designer suggests you purchase 2.5 yards of additional fabric if you wish to add borders to your quilt. If you are planning to use a border stripe print, then we suggest a minimum of 3 yards to allow for mitering the corners of your outer border. The designer will be demonstrating two techniques for making half square triangles. One is using the Creative Grids Non-Slip Multi-Size 45/90 Degree Ruler CGRMS4590. Other half-square triangle rulers may be used. The second technique is using triangle paper. The size needed is listed below in the Suggested Products area. One roll is enough to make the project.
