Started with thisHere is a little teaser for the Border Creek Station Mystery Club starting this Sunday at Pine Tree Quilt Shop in Salem, NH.

I started with this stack of fabric and two charm packs. I was so excited, I opened one of the packs before I took the picture.In Process

The pattern designer keeps you very organized. You start with 10 large zipper bags. At the end of each step, you have a list of what you should have in each bag.  To the right is a picture of my baggies about halfway through.Quilt Top Completed

Here is the worst of all teases. This is a cropped picture of my completed quilt top folded up.  I know, it’s mean.  But it is supposed to be a mystery.

There is still room/time to sign up. So call Pine Tree right now.

See you Sunday.

BCS_LogoBorder Creek Station has a new Mystery Club.  It came out late 2013.  I will be leading the classes for the club at Pine Tree Quilt Shop in Salem, NH.  You can find more information on their Block of the Month page.

The fabrics are from the Moda Collection by 3 Sisters called Vin du Jour.  It has a subtle wine based theme. The collection is beautiful.  I loved the swirled flowers.

We will be using yardage from the swatches shown below, plus two charm packs.  The charm packs give you the ability to use all the fabrics in the collection without purchasing the entire collection.  The collection includes a few toile fabrics, if you are a toile lover.

We will be making a queen size quilt with the finished size of 100″ square.  The pattern is broken down into 8 steps. I found the pattern to be well written.  It also has great diagrams if you are more of a visual person, like I am.

BCS rates this pattern for experience beginners and up.  I found this to be true.  The pattern is easy enough for someone who is new to quilting and wants to start stretching their quilting skills.  I also found it to be interesting enough to excite the more experienced quilter.BCS_Mystery_Fabric_Swatches_2013

There are sections in the pattern where you are given a choice as to which charm square you are going to use in some of the blocks.  I found this to be toughest part.  They are all so beautiful it was hard to decide what I wanted to use where.

I’m excited to start the class.  I enjoyed making the quilt as I’m sure you will to.

See you in class.
