A Review on the Mystery quilt

Howdy folks,

Did you play along with the mystery with us over the weekend? If so, we would love to see your pretty top! Come over to the forum and show us.

This is a great little quilt. It will perfect for my new baby, once he/she is about toddler size. Actually, my 7 yr old could fit under it. So it will see some long usage, I am sure.

For you beginners, this is the perfect quilt to try out and practice your HST's (half square triangles) and your flying geese. You make 5 different blocks. So you get plenty of practice.

For you who have been quilting awhile, this is an easy quilt. But that does NOT mean it's boring! OH NO! There is a twist or two from your usual pattern, that makes it a fun quilt to put together.

It only takes 5 yards, 1 yard of 5 different fabrics each. So whether you like bright colors, pastels, Americano, 1930s, darks, whatever, it will be smashing in any colorway.

And just because I don't like to leave you without a picture or two....

Just a few, small sneak peeks...

Cause it's not a mystery...if you know what it looks like beforehand.

Thanks for stopping by! Come and join us on the forum.

October mystery weekend

Hello, hello!

The Oct mystery weekend is coming!! YAH! Mark your calenders for Oct 15th &16th. You wont want to miss it. Jess has the best mysteries on the net (in my humble opinion :)  LOL )

Anyways, you can order the mystery pattern here, for only $9.95. And you can buy a beautiful kit here, if you want.

You don't have to use a kit though. All you need is five fabulous fabrics that go well together, one yard of each fabric.

These are the ones I am using.

It being Fall, Jess had Fall fabrics in mind when she made this mystery....but...well, this is what I had. LOL. I like Summery fabrics more than Fall ones anyways :) I'm sure it will look beautiful though, no matter what season you use.

I hope you all come over to the forum and join in the discussion and pictures when the weekend is here. You have to be a member of our forums to join to see the mystery threads though.

But we always have lots of fun things going on. So come on down and join the fun.
