Marline Turner's Mystery

At the very first mini quilt festival held in Bloemfontein and organized by Hennie Hoffmann and team, I attended a mystery quilt class by Marline Turner.

What a grueling day of cutting, measuring and stitching it turned out to be with teacher Marline having very little sympathy for aching backs and we were firmly told that absolutely no moaning will be allowed in her class.

At first I didn't think my fabric or color choice would work on this quilt but back home, I kept going and later, as I worked the blocks together, this quilt, as Riette, one of my quilting friends, would put it, grew on me.

I've also used Marline's netting tip to transfer quilt markings and found it extremely easy to work with.

Completed: 25 May 2007
