403 Class—Solid Built Mystery One
We all love to make Mystery Quilts—especially when someone else has figured out the math and chosen the pattern and colors! And that's exactly what Yamin has done for Solid Built Mystery One. Using just two solid colors create a striking quilt. The easy-to-follow steps have already been carefully worked out. No need to waste time in class measuring, marking and cutting, pre-cut kits will be waiting when you sit down at your machine! The simplicity of this design makes it a "must" mystery class. At the end of the day, leave with an almost completed project requiring perhaps another block or two and some finishing touches. During class, Yamin will be talking about the latest news from her hometown of Brooklyn, NY, and sharing plenty of humorous anecdotes from her travels as a national quilting teacher (rest assured, all names shall remain anonymous).
