2024 BBM "Kaffe - Blue Flower"

Brown Bag Mystery is an annual program run exclusively with Sewposium shops. It's a double mystery with both a mystery pattern and mystery fabric! To participate, simply purchase a bag online or in-store by picking your favorite “hint” fabric option. The coordinating fabrics are a mystery, but each bag has been carefully curated by our team based on the finished pattern. This Brown Bag Mystery Quilt will finish 60 in x 70 in before optional borders.

Once you have your bag(s), you can join Karen Montgomery's private Facebook group and start preparing for the program by following the cutting instructions in your bag. Then, starting in March, assembly clues will be released every 2 weeks. We will mail clues out to all of our bag purchasers (unless you tell us otherwise). The beauty of this program is that the final pattern will be revealed to you gradually over the course of 8 weeks. Along the way, you'll learn invaluable tips and tricks from Karen Montgomery via her private Facebook group and the wonderful community of participating sewists!  

Included in your bag:

  • The required 6.5 yards of mystery fabric for your quilt top

  • Cutting instructions (in your bag) and pattern clues (mailed bi-weekly)  

  • Admission to the private, participant-only Facebook group

  • Access to video lessons from the pattern designer, Karen Montgomery
