Hi everyone! Welcome to the Mystery Quilt 2013 Quilt Along. If you are just joining us, please read the "guidelines" located here.
The finished quilt will be a lap quilt or throw, approximately 51-1/2 x 68-1/2", and requires four fabrics. It is time to select and order your fabric so you be ready for Part 1 of the Mystery Quilt 2013, to be posted on March 4th. To help you choose fabric, especially since you don't know what you are making, download this Fabric Selection Suggestions PDF
Thanks for posting this PDF, it is very helpful.
you are right Shannon it does make a difference with many options!! thanks QWU for taking the time to design and post a free Mystery. I absolutely love making them
How much yardage would I need to do the backing and binding of the same fabric?
Perfect timing for me! I am packing up to move and most fabrics are gone to storage (showing a home with a packed sewing room isn't my realtor's idea of "uncluttered".. lol.. oh well. I have three bins of blues that I can select from and this will keep me occupied now that my house is empty and I have less to clean.. Yah! This will keep me occupied.. Thanks for the project.
I agree, the PDF is most helpful! I know just what to do to select fabrics.. in fact, I have even thought of using like in the dark category.. two or three darks.. would this work out ok? As long as they are all the same value and hue?
Can't wait to start.. I love this Connecting Threads site..
I am trying to download that Fabric selection suggestions PDF and it does not work , it is blank, anyone had that problem? Or anyone know what to do?
Ginette, put your mouse directly over the top of the underlined portion of the sentence and click on it. Your screen will turn a dark gray then back to white with the printed pages. Move your mouse cursor to the bottom of your page and a bar will come up with graphics for options for downloading, printing, etc. If this doesn't work, then you may need to download the most current copy of Adobe Reader, which is available from Connecting Threads. Good luck. If this still doesn't work, contact someone in customer service for help.
If anyone needs help getting the PDF, email me @ firstname.lastname@example.org and I can send the PDF to you directly.
Hello to you too! These are additive, aren't they? :-) Go to the PHOTO PAGES (in the DF's) and check out the fabric selections. Lots of people have joined in this one.
