WOW!!

I am really excited to see so many new members joining in on this MQ.  And, of course, I'm glad for all of our old ... I mean older ... I mean veteran, yeah, veteran ... members joining as well.  It is going to be so much fun to see everyone's fabric selections and to see all the quilts going together.

This Debbie Caffrey pattern, Baubles and Beads, has 16 steps (more than any of our previous MQ's) so you'll be getting several steps each week.  Even so, you'll still have plenty of time to finish the steps during the week and work on your other projects too.  There are no difficult steps, just basic piecing that novice quilters will be able to handle with ease and makes a beautiful quilt.

The fabric requirements and cutting instructions will be posted on March 4th in the MQ Workshop which you will find in the menu on the left side of the home page. The MQ 4 Group will be opened some time this week.  Anyone can join the group, even if you are not doing the MQ with us.  And you will want to join because that is where everyone will be posting pics of their fabrics.  The Group is used primarily for asking questions about the instructions and posting picTures in the media section.  I will open a thread in the group for each set of instructions and will answer all questions there.  And this thread will be here for general chat about the MQ.

As for fabric selection, there will be some guidelines included with the fabric requirements, but the rest is up to you.  Some people prefer to stay with their favorites and others choose to go outside their comfort zone and follow blindly along (as Seajay said in an earlier post)! 

I am really happy to see so many participants and I'm as anxious as you to get started.  NINE DAYS TO GO!!!

Patricia Schlindwein:
is there any way that when we get the first edition that tells fabric requirements and the cutting of pieces, that you can give us what it would be if we made bigger quilts, like queen or king as well as the 60 X   ??.

Hi Patricia,

The pattern does not include that information, but I will try to come up with a "best estimate".

I am excited to start a mystery quilt.  This will be my first mystery quilt ever.  I might need some help or support to complete this one.  Hope I can count on you all experienced mystery quilters!

Hi Sandy H - Is it to late to join along? I have never done a mystery quilt, however, this sounds like fun! :)

Sandy,

Would this project work if I used some of my fat quarters?  I have a ton of Aunt Grace that I need to use in something.

It is never too late to join in on the mystery quilt.  And it is especially not too late when the first steps haven't even been posted.  You will have a blast doing this.

This will be my first mystery quilt also!  I'm excited about it, and like Angele, I'm counting on the experienced quilters for advice and encouragement when I do something stupid.  lol

Sandy H.:
The MQ 4 Group will be opened some time this week.(...posted Feb.23)

I'm still not seeing the MQ4 group.  Have I overlooked it, or is it not there yet?
