Chilhowie Quilt!


Our Chilhowie Mystery Season was the best one yet in my book!

I'm so grateful for all that participated during our mystery season, and I look forward to quilting again with me next time!

If you are new, our Quiltville Winter Mystery begins with the introductory post being released on Halloween.  The introduction includes colors, yardage requirements, special tools needed if any, along with background information.

The mystery starts in earnest on Black Friday, the day after our Thanksgiving day here in the USA.

Mysteries usually run around 7 or 8 weeks with each new "clue" being released on subsequent Fridays.

A month after the reveal the mystery is removed from my website, rewritten, and presented to you as a PDF pattern for purchase.

Chilhowie is now available in PDF pattern booklet form, available in both the Quiltville Store and the Quiltville Etsy Pattern Shop!

Nine-patches, Four-patches, Hourglass units and other quilter’s favorites combine in an explosion of color! 

Pattern includes 20 pages of full-color photos, graphics, and detailed instruction for the ultimate scrappy success!

All of the hints, tips, tricks and construction options are included so you can make Chilhowie YOUR way.

Quilt Size: 78’’ X 78’’

Optional but helpful: Essential Triangle Tool and either the Simple folded Corners ruler, or the Simple Folded Corners Mini.

Traditional rotary cutting methods are given for those who don't have access to these rulers.

Introductory Special:

Chilhowie PDF Pattern Booklet is now 25% off through 2/28/23.  No coupon needed!  Hurry now and save!
