Holiday Seclusion Mystery: Intro & Prep

The Holiday Seclusion Mystery will start on Saturday, Dec. 26, 2020. With most everyone staying put, I figured it’s a good time to do a simple mystery. Even though it’s called a holiday mystery – it’s not a holiday quilt. Unless you use holiday fabrics … it’s just a small quilt – 43″ x 43.” It will make a great baby quilt or table topper. It can easily be made larger, but I’m just giving you the directions for the small quilt.

Do you want a 2 colour quilt? Then this will do the trick!

Do you want a scrappy quilt? You have that choice as well.

Fabric Requirements

  • Background:  1 ½  yards
  • Scraps:   1 – 1½ yards …. (if making a 2 colour quilt, 1 yard)

SEW … what did I use to make this quilt? For the 2 colour quilt, I used a white background paired with a peach print. It will make a nice baby quilt. The scrappy quilt has a grey background and has dark teal, dark green and green prints. Yes, they are all Island Batik fabrics!


Cut fabrics ahead of time.  Label as directed

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!
