I tested Modern Flight at the MN Quilt show and it's a success. It is now ready to be used in your quilt shop or with your quilt guild.
No pictures of the quilt for this post -- or it wouldn't be a mystery. However, send me a note and I would be happy to share a photo will you.
There are four separate sizes for this quilt (from Wall to Queen).
I am committing to not showing the new pattern on my website or with a distributor for 12 months. This will ensure the pattern stays a mystery for your shop participants.
Here is how my Mystery Program Works:
1. Purchase a minimum of ten mystery patterns (and commit to purchase additional patterns equal to participant count at the event).
2. On Point Quilter will send you a Mystery Event Package which will include:
(a) File with all the pre-work and individual clues for your event. (Just print off the number or copies you need for class participants)
(b) Electric Quilt 7 file for creating coloration options in your shop’s fabrics.
(c) Tip sheet for a successful event.
3. Piece a sample quilt or borrow one of my trunk show quilts for your sample during the event. (Subject to availability.)
4. Provide a full pattern to participants at the end of the event.
5. Note that extra patterns may be sold in the shop. However I ask that they not be sold on your website or pictures shared via social media until July 2018.
Modern Flight Fabric Suggestions
Only 5 fabrics are required for this quilt, making it easy for you (and your customers) to select fabric for this quilt.) I found it useful to use two complementary color families for the Medium and Dark fabrics. The background could be a light in either of these color families or could just be a neutral fabric. Or you could make Medium 1 the light and the Background a Medium value fabric. This pattern is really very versatile. Here are some fabric choices that I thought worked well – but you certainly don’t need to be limited to these ideas.
Modern Flight Tool Suggestions
Instructions are included for using both the Tucker Trimmer 1 and the Wing Clipper. Both rulers may be purchased wholesale from Studio 180 Design. Alternative instructions are provided for those not wishing to use the specialty rulers. Hint: I found that most end up purchasing the rulers after seeing the demonstration of the tool in class.
Other Patterns Available in the Mystery Format
Note that these patterns have been published on my website. However, the pre-work handouts and the clues provide no reference to the pattern which allows this to stay a mystery for your class participants.
