New Event! - Tasters Mystery Tour

Friday and Saturday - April 26 and 27, 2019

We are joining forces with Pieceworks (Winterset), Off the Rails (Bondurant) and The Quilted Windmill (Pella) and of course Adel Quilting (Adel) to create a fun quilters mystery tour. Each shop will feature the flavor of their chosen country and serve a recipe that represents that country. Example, our shop will represent Ireland and serve bon bons made with the new Baileys Irish Cream Chocolate Chips.

What else - in addition to a recipe for each of the featured treats, you also get part of a quilt pattern at each shop. It's a mystery so, you need to visit each of the four shops to get your complete pattern. When you come in, we will also each gift you with a fat quarter to use in your Mystery Quilt. The shops have coordinated the fabric selection so, all you need to do is add background fabric to your free collection of the patterns and fat quarters and you will have everything you need to build this quilt top.  Here's a sneak peek at what the quilt looks like:

Seriously, did you think I would give it away!?! It's a mystery.
