Happy New Year!!

Left month-to-month

Longmeadow – Block 4 is ready to download.  I hope you all had lovely holidays with lots of family and friends and wonderful things.  I’ve been watching the mystery quilt that Bonnie Hunter’s been putting on, “Allietare”.  It’s a 6-part mystery that started on Black Friday and is found here, and the final reveal happened today.  I haven’t been playing along, but have been watching to see how it’s done.  I’ve never been part of a Mystery Quilt before.  I liked that it was short – 6 weeks – with fairly simple steps, and a gorgeous quilt at the end of it.  So I think I’ll start gathering my fabrics.  I guess I’m sort of a chicken, because I don’t like mysteries in general – not books or anything else.  I like to know the end from the beginning.  So I was afraid to jump in before seeing what the payoff would be.  And it’s just simply gorgeous!  Go on over and take a peek, if you haven’t already.

    thank you for your bom. I agree I do not like mystery boms. I want to know what I’m making so I have the fun to choose the fabric I want.

    I’m not a fan of mystery quilts, either. I did one once, bought all the fabric, started cutting it up, and ended up unhappy with it. I now wait and see what the final quilt looks like before even thinking about attempting it.

    Hi and Happy New Year to you too. I too like to see what the mystery is before I commit. I do however save the clues as they come out and if I don’t like the out come then I just delete what I saved.
    Warm hugs,
    Ruthie

    Happy New Year! Thank you for another lovely block! I save the clues then decide if I want to make it. I also like to see what fabrics everyone else is using ~ because I might like their choices better than mine!

    Happy New Year! Thank you for block number 4. It’s about time to get busy stitching. I have all my fabrics but need more motivation lol. Do others share their work on facebook or pinterest? Just wondering and would enjoy seeing others work as well.
