I sure would like to join you all on MQ6, but I don't think my schedule will permit.  I'll be cheering you all on from the side lines.

I am a relatively new quilter and have just found the online world of quilting.  I am intrigued by working with everyone on this Mystery Quilt, but I have NO idea what to expect or how it works.  Would someone mind giving me a quick primer?  How much time should I expect to spend on this?  How often do people usually post to this forum?  What if I don't have a huge stash of scraps to use?  I don't want to commit to a group if I can't follow through.

THANKS!!!

Ashley

Hi Ashley,

My first MQ was MQV and I didn't know what to expect either, but it was so much fun and absolutely no pressure.  The instructions are posted every month and people post either their progress or questions about the blocks.  I didn't purchase all the fabric at once, I left the borders and backing until the blocks were completed.  I think you will find it a lot of fun and if you don't have enough fabric or want to introduce different colors, we can always twist your arm to go buy more. hehe

Missouri Quilts posts their "Deal of the Day" at midnight.  I'm looking forward to the last two days of the "Sushi" sale.  I've just gotten interested in Jelly Rolls and all the other 2.5" rolls.  Wish they'd come up with a generic for the precut, like Charm Squares.  That is immediately understood to be a 5" square.  If Moda hadn't made the Bake Shop references their own, we could say "Jelly Roll" about any mfgr's 2.5" rolls.  I know we all have done that anyway, but it should be like Kleenex meaning any paper tissue, even though it is actually a Kimberly Clark product name and is copyrighted.  Oh, well ...

It's Quilting! You're supposed to be having fun!

hi leona and ashley, welcome to the group.   with the mystery quilts, you can usually get each of the steps done in a few hours.   it takes a few days to get the pieces  together to finish the top, maybe.  if you are able to keep up with the steps it goes pretty smoothly.    people post as much as they want.  some people only post to threads they are interested in, some post to every thread here.  some of us work and don't have as much time.  and some of us are retired and have lots of time to chat here.  i know that if i spent less time chatting here, i could get more quilts done.

when sandy gets the fabric requirements posted you will better be able to know what you will need for the MQ.  at that time you can ask her  how many, ao any scraps you need.   i've been pulling out fabric that's been sitting on my shelf for years.

 there is no pressure to finish a project in the group.  the only pressure to follow through would come from yourself.

these are fun, and even if you don't participate, it is interesting to see how different all the quilts look in other colors.  no two will look alike. so please follow the  group, even if you don't make the quilt.   for a newer quilter it will be a good learning experience on color selection.

Thanks for the info!!  It sounds like I'm in!

Does it work to add different colors/fabrics as you go, or do you need to have it all figured out when you start?

the cutting instructions are given first, so you pretty much need your fabric picked out at the beginning
