• Stitchers attend mystery quilt workshop

    Members of the Stitchers Quilt Guild attended the annual mystery quilt workshop in January. Members are told ahead of time how much fabric to bring for the project and pre-cutting directions. Once the workshop starts everyone gets the first clue to work on, once that part of the quilt is done the next clue is passed out. This is done until the entire quilt top is complete. Patty Pruitt reveals the mystery quilt.
