Overview

'Keep the projects fun, friendly, and finishable!' It s no mystery why the author s quilt designs are so popular. She has created a series of charming quilts, easily adapted to mystery-quilt events for groups such as teachers, guilds, retreats, cruises, recreation centers, and senior centers. Looking for fun, food, and fellowship, quilters flock to Rita s Creations SewClever quilt shop in Chillicothe, Ohio, to take her classes. This nationally known speaker and teacher has developed a simple, fun-loving system to entertain and delight quilters and non-quilters alike. All of the quilt patterns in the book are from her highly successful Sunday Mystery classes. Because they were designed for classroom use, all quilt tops can be completed in one or two afternoons. These patterns are simple enough to ensure success for the beginner, yet they provide easy-to-follow instructions for the more advanced quilter who wants to make a quick gift. Flexible design allows each quilter to choose the pieced quilt pattern she wants to make and select a border from an assortment of possibilities to complete a quilt in the size she needs. When finished, each quilt is a unique beauty the stitcher has made her own.

    Wonderful collection of super easy patterns

    Rita is a talented quilt designer, and this book is a collection of her popular mystery classses. Quilters are given "clues" - directions for putting together the pieces - which yield a beautiful quilt top. During the class, the quilter does not know what the finished top pattern will be until it is completed, but the reader can see the quilt pattern in the book. Super easy patterns that will yield spectacular results. It's a great book! Can't wait for her next book!
