Ms MoomMist:
I believe "Quiltmaker magazine is looking for some one to check math on quilting patterns is you are looking to use those skills

Think they'd pay me for it?  LOL

Ms MoomMist:
My storage wall right above my machine is a peg board and my baggies fit nicely with everything right there.

Great idea on storage.

Ms MoomMist:
I'm liking my choice of fabric better with each step

I'm liking your choices as well.  Looks like another winner to me.

I'm sure there must be other options , flying geese was just the first thing I thought of. It just so happens the material I'm using for this quilt is left over from one that I did  30 flying geese so with the corners cut off I now have  [60]  1  3/4 inch  half squares left .I has to be a lot smaller for me to throw away. lol  Now with what is left over  I have to see what can be done. Usually when I design a quilt I start in the center with a focal poing and work my way out  till its the size I want.

2 more Fridays, 3 more steps and the mystery will be revealed!!!

Wow, that is fast, but darn, I'm going to be at another retreat when the last clue comes in.  It seems I'm always running behind on these things.

Sandy About how many of background squares should we have left? I didn't cut them all at the beginning and need to finish. However, I'm not certain how many more to cut. Thanks

Barb, I believe it is 24 for the small quilt and 48 for the larger one.

I have 48 background squares left and I'm making the small quilt.  Don't know how many for the larger one.

OK, I just counted my background squares and have 24.  I am doing the small quilt so have 4 X 6  rectangles, that means it is NOT flying geese [ unless I didn't cut enough bg squares] . I think I cut the right number  as I was cutting I put them in stacks of 20  to keep track  and  not have to count 192  later.

I've finished steps 1-5 and am ready for Friday.  I've been following the chat which has helped.   I only cut one of Fig. 1 & 2 on Step 3, but thanks to some of you, I now have two of each.  This is my first mystery quilt.    It is fun and motivating.   This morning I downloaded the directions for MQ4.  I'll give it a try too--when time allows.  Hope all you quilter's have a great day.

Where is the link for the MQ4, I did #3 but not 4 and I can't find a link for 4, I would be interested in looking at the pattern.

Thanks

Katie,

There are probably easier ways, but if I click on the Question Mark/Mystery Quilt icon on the home page it will take me to a list of topics.  Baubles and Beads is Mystery #4.

Katie, if you go into Groups, MQ 4 is listed on the right hand side as Bubbles and Bangles I think or something like that.

I have sure enjoyed reading and seeing what you are all doing.   I have too many projects going to join in, but after sorting and folding my fabric, I realize I need a lot more projects to use up even a small part of my stash.  But I am ready to get back to getting something going with the UFO group again.  Maybe I will finally quilt my second UFO1, and UFO2.  Then I need to finish #3 and quilt that. 

If I didn't have to work, I'd sew all day, day after day.
