    What Our Members Are Saying about Us…

    From Kelly Griffith

    The story part has me waiting for more each month and puzzles are fun. The blocks are things I have never done, what a great learning experience with helpful instructions. I have obtained so many new skills. One thing that I didn’t expect though, wow – the amazing people in this group, so encouraging, kind and fun! Recommend to anyone who wants a fantastic learning experience.

    From Pam J

    This site is user friendly and so dedicated to the quilting world. Great support and so much fun.

    From Paula O.

    It’s a fun and innovative way to learn new quilting techniques while actually creating a beautiful quilt of your own. The instructions are easy to follow and the customer support is great! The monthly story that accompanies the block-of-the-month is entertaining and provides great inspiration while working on your quilt!

    From Lizabeth R

    Have loved the friendliness of the FB group, the book that is connected to the quilt and the challenge of the puzzles and riddles. Each month’s block has been so much fun and it’s great that the harder blocks have a simpler version for those just learning to quilt- nice differentiation!

    From Jennifer H.

    This is an amazing group! Lynda is available almost 24/7 to help answer any questions and assist you; the puzzles and riddles are fun; the story keeps you thinking AND the monthly quilt blocks are great! If the block is challenging, there is always an easier version offered. The FB page for all participants is fun too. So many funny and likable quilters to meet and share ideas. One area of quilters has even organized a monthly gathering where they bring their blocks – discuss the latest chapter – and have fun!!! FFMQ has also partnered with Sew Much Charm to offer beautiful fabric bundles of cottons and batiks, all of the best quilt shop quality! Can’t say enough about FFMQ – you’ll love it.

    From Patricia H

    One of the best groups I have been. Everyone is so very helpful.

    From: Mary L

    Hi, A few months ago Ms Lynda was researching if there were people that would be interested in a Mystery Quilt sewing group, I ask for contact information and here I am today with their group. I’ve had a stroke, but this group is not so fast pace that I can’t keep up…Plus I enjoy Ms Lynda, she responds so quickly to  my text.

    From: Debbie S

    I love this mystery stories and the quilt blocks . I made my very 1st quilt block.  I was afraid I mess it up bad but great instructions helped me through it.


    From: Pam K

    I love this group. Lynda is always ready to help with all my crazy problems and believe me I’ve had several. She gets back to you really quick. I love the short story she writes and the puzzle was pretty awesome to. I’ve joined other quilt groups and all you get is a quilt block. You print it of and that’s it. Here Lynda keeps you interested and the story along with the block instructions keeps you interested. The quilt designer did an awesome job of designing a block to fit the story. I can’t wait till the next block, story and puzzle comes out. I have recommended this site to several people. 

    From: Lyn E

    When I saw the information about a Mystery Quilt I was excited about it because as a fairly new quilter I wanted to do something with different patterns. I belong to a  Mystery Book club, so this seemed just right.
    The story was good, intriguing & it was a challenge to cut the diamond shape center for the first block.  I’ve had to make a schedule to work on 2 other quilts,  but it’s been good for me to set a goal…  You have something for everyone.


    From Elizabeth L

    I just love being part of this sweet group. The stories every month are wonderful, the puzzles are challenging and the quilt blocks actually inspire me to be creative. The block patterns are really well written and have photos too, and each month I get to pick my fabrics and get my imagination working. The customer service is terrific and personalized. You feel like you’re part of a little quilting family. Thanks for such a great club!!
