Rowing by Hand Mystery 2018




Get ready for a brand new “sort of” mystery and join the fun!

CLUE 1 Yes, it IS a row quilt. But a row quilt like none other! It started with some leftover blocks I had accumulated. Then after pulling out lots of stamp sets, I finally got my design, which I think is one of my favorite quilts in a long time.

CLUE 2 Yes, you WILL be using stamp sets for each row except for 2 wool embroidery rows. (6 different stamps or stamp sets are used… details below)

CLUE 3 The quilt will be 36″ x 42″ without borders.

CLUE 4 Beginning in February, color handouts will be sent each month. At the end of each clue I’ll include a picture of my finished row so you will know EXACTLY which fabric I used and where, making your fabric selections easier. So, no guess work which fabrics I used where, making it a “sort of” mystery.

CLUE 5 This mystery is for ALL levels. We will begin with the easiest of blocks so everyone will have success. I’ll be blogging along the way so you’ll be guided by my teaching through the blogs. Posting your pictures on the “Stitching with Cindy Blackberg” face book page will help everyone and double the fun.

The fun starts February 15th and will run for 8 months!
