Here's a sneak peek of the back of the Mystery Quilt of Valor that Alycia Carmin is presenting in conjunction with my Templates class on Craftsy.com I can't show you the front quite yet because the Mystery is not complete and the final reveal has not yet been made. Patience, my friends, is a virtue. :)
While this may look super complex, IT IS SO EASY!!!!!!! I used a couple of templates (1 straight, 3 circles and 2 melons), some super simple markings (and I do mean super simple!), and filled everything in with very easy medium/small scale stippling and some pebbles. This is a quilt that any confident beginner could do.
Don't believe me? Take the class and I'll show you. We launch in a little over a month!
