Are you a person who likes a surprise, or like me do you read the end of the book long before actually progressing to that point? I admire the people who sign up for a mystery quilt with little to no idea of what to expect for the end result. I may admire them, but I’m not one of them! I want to know what I am making!
All this leads up to how I am involved with a mystery quilt. It’s simple, I choose them and lead them, so yes I do know the end. Today is the big reveal . It is very different from the one we did last year, and the colors might not be for everyone. But, I love how it turned out.
I took the photo in a classroom with flourescent lighting so the colors aren’t true.
It seems there are other people wanting to “read the end before it’s time.” I loaded the tutorial video for putting the whole quilt together last night and when I looked at 6 am there had already been 20 views.
We will be having another mystery beginning Oct.1 and today is the deadline for sign-ups at Ruth’s Stitchery. Next year’s mystery is quilt blocks A to Z, the only applique is optional at the end, and the fabrics will be mostly from Civil War reproduction lines. Here’s a sneak peek–
Finally to give credit where it is due, the pattern for this year’s mystery was “Little House in the Garden” by Under the Garden Moon,.
