Our guild’s mystery quilt from last year went over so well, they wanted to do another one this year.
So my sister and I once again hosted a mystery quilt for the Pecan Valley Quilt Guild members over the last few months. I finished my binding 2 hours before the meeting, in my usual style. Had I not made a concentrated effort to finish the center part at our last retreat, and then quilted it as simply as possible, I wouldn’t have gotten done in time for the reveal. I’m forever too busy working on other people’s stuff!
This year we chose a mystery that was written by Debbie Caffrey, called the “Sew What Mystery”. You can find it, and lots of other free patterns and mystery quilts written by Debbie, by clicking HERE, if you or your group would like to do a mystery quilt.
This post right here is a spoiler for the Sew What Mystery, but I wanted to show you our finished quilts. I never cease to be amazed at how different each quilt can look made from the same pattern simply by using different fabrics!

Katy’s (my amazing sister!):
I know there are a few others out there, but they belong to members who, for one reason or another, couldn’t make it to guild meeting this time.
I donated mine to our Community Service stash. Lord knows I do NOT need any more quilts to lay around at home unused, and it’s a great size to make someone a perfect comfort quilt.
And thanks to Linda K. for taking these pictures for me.
The very next day, five of our members gave a trunk show of a variety of our member’s quilts to a neighboring guild. We traded trunk shows with them, which was a great idea — they came and presented to us last September, and we presented to them this month. (If you need a good program idea for your guild, it’s something to consider.)
At next month’s meeting, we’re having a mug rug swap! Our guild does some fun stuff. I’m excited to see what fun projects we tackle over the next year!
