"I loved the Mystery SAL! I eagerly awaited each weeks email. I thought picking fabrics would be tough without knowing what the final quilt would look like but Taylor made it easy with her guide on how to pick out the fabric. I’m excited for the next Toad Circle Mystery SAL"
"I love quite literally every pattern Taylor makes, so it was exciting to do the MQAL because I KNEW I would be thrilled with the design but also got to be surprised by the end result! She provided an amazing level of guidance and support throughout the project and I cannot wait to participate again"
"As a beginner quilter, I thoroughly enjoyed the mystery QAL; it made the process a lot less intimidating, the community was motivating, and the pattern was flexible enough that I was able to use a lot of fabric that I already had. The “guess the block” challenge and show and tell at the end were especially fun!"
"I absolutely LOVED this experience. Having no idea of what the final quilt would look like made the final result so much more satisfying. It kept me on the edge of my seat each week, asking "what will happen next!?" I recommend it to anyone who wants to add a little bit of *mystery* into their quilting"
"The mystery was thrilling! I never doubted that I would love a pattern from Toad and Sew and her first mystery quilt did not disappoint."
"This was my first mystery quilt along which was scary at times as I like to be very in control of which fabrics go where etc. but it was a lot of fun and gives you some trust the process practice."
