September 8 – 17, 2016

 We had such an overwhelming response to our other Mystery in New England cruise

that we decided to add another one.

What is the Project?:

Well, it is a MYSTERY, so we can’t tell you.  We can say that it is a lap-sized, pieced quilt top and we think you’ll love it!  The fabrics are included in your cruise fees – no extra kit to buy, and YOU get to help choose your fabrics.  Upon final payment of your cruise, you will receive information about selecting your fabrics and the pre-cruise cutting that will need to be completed before the trip.

We had a lot of fun on our Mystery Quilt Cruise to Alaska in 2012 – join us for dazzling fall colors as we explore the Eastern Seaboard – it’s going to be a great time.
