Quilt With Us

Found a really cool mystery on line. I, however, have broken every rule since the beginning. The directions were to use 1/2 yard cuts. I, however, want to use my FQ stash. I was supposed to choose 12 prints; I now have 24 (or so!). I did cut the strips as directed and I will have the correct number of blocks; that is after I added more fabric. Oh well, I am enjoying the sewing. I think that I've discovereed it is easier to piece on vacation and to quilt during the school year. it's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!

Hi Jeannie, I just finished a mystery quilt and I love it. I admit I was a nervous wreck. I was so afraid that I would not like it and that I was wasting time. Which quilt did you do? I think I want to do another but not really the same pattern. ....

I've never made a mystery quilt; sounds intriguing. Will have to try when UFOs are finished. Is that never?

I think you'll love your mystery quilt. I just finished a mystery lap quilt that I was going to call my Ugly Quilt, but it turned out so beautiful, that I really love it. So, now, I'm doing another one using different colors. I have all the strips sewn together and ready to cut into 8" blocks. I sewed 4 pieces of material together, 3", 2 1/2", and 2" to make the strip. I used 1 3" and 2 1/2" and two 2" strips in each strlp. They measure 8" across. I'm not sure how I'm going to rearrange these blocks, but for the other one, I had them horizonatily and vertically. I had 4 blocks left over, so I made a matching pillow. I'm really having fun making these 2 lap quilts. So, I can imagine that you'll feel the same about your quilt. Good luck and Happy Quilting.
