Oh I love mystery quilts! The ones where you start with one clue, and the directions tell you how much fabric you'll need, and how to cut it. Once you complete that step, you get the next clue.
This quilt was published in Quiltmaker Magazine, and designed by Bonnie Hunter. Since the magazine only comes out every other month, I had to wait 2 whole months for the next clue! Torture, but worth the wait I think.
I chose to stick with Bonnie's color theme of pinks, purples and greens with a white background. Then I raided my stash and started to cut.
The name for the quilt comes from my biking buddy Xande. I had told her that it was to be given to mom's Connections group which supports literacy. Her suggestion of "An Unlikely Story" surely fit the group, and the quilt.
