We participated in a Mystery Quilt weekend. You buy your fabric, follow the cutting instructions provided and show up with all your pieces cut and all your equipment and paraphernalia to follow along with the mystery. Wow, think you need to take a lot for a cross stitch weekend......it's nothing compared to a quilting weekend.
Here's a bit from show and tell of previous projects that were shared. These women were so talented and so welcoming and great to be with.
Beth didn't work on the mystery quilt but worked on adding the finishing rows to this huge quilt.
Another block of the month beauty.

And my work for this weekend. When it came to the mystery, I managed to complete 13 of the 14 clues. Clue 14 is the final assembly into rows and joining them for a quilt top. I stopped sewing because I wanted to square up all my pieces before the last step. I don't know if I am making a mistake to do so but....too late. No turning back once I started.
The orange with white symbols under my thread, my bobbin keep and the pins will be my binding. The backing is the cream colored with the colored symbols that is under everything.
We had a nice time together and met some great new friends. We exchanged emails and added each other to Facebook friends lists. I am now in the mood to sew up a storm....and with a nor'easter coming this Tuesday and I am hoping for a snow day in my near future, and time to finish this quilt top. Not enough hours in the day to do all the crafting I want to!!!!
