About Us

Flash Fiction Mystery Quilt was founded in 2019 by best friends Lynda Smith and Teresa Sloop. They wanted to bring something different to the quilting world. A mystery quilt that wasn’t high priced, one that was super fun, and offered more than every other mystery quilt out there.

Since that time Flash Fiction Mystery Quilt has grown into a wonderful online quilting community. In 2021 Teresa sadly had to leave the company due to returning to full-time nursing, and Sarah Yuhr stepped into her role as co-owner.

Sarah designs the quilt and patterns you will be sewing. Lynda writes the stories for your reading pleasure. She also manages the website and memberships. Suellen tests all the quilt patterns and proofreads the books before they are published, as well as helping choose colorways for the quilts we design.

We know there are plenty of mystery quilts available, and we truly appreciate you joining us on this exciting journey! It’s going to be so fun!
