THANK YOU Margaret T!  I appreciate it.  I thought 40 but wanted to be positive before cutting!

Wendy :

ok,

Here is my choice in fabric.  The checkard will be the back, the strip is the binding, and the floral is  the border.

The solid green is the background.

Wendy--I love the stripe!  It's going to be a pretty quilt, regardless of the pattern :)

Wendy,

All your fabric colors look fantastic together!  I can't wait to see how it comes out.  I still haven't cut anything out, but I did purchase my background fabric yesterday.  Will post pictures soon.

I just ordered fabric from Missouri Q Comp.  I don't expect to start on time with everyone else.   This is fine with me, as I am now finishing sewing on binding to a quilt I am finishing.  I did join the MQ 6 group, will I have access to the instructions even though I may not begin the project on time as a quilt along?  How long will the instructions be posted?

Love all the florals you guys are using.  I decided to think my stash.  I found that I had enough left over from the fat quarters I used for mq5 so the two quilts will have the same colour scheme.  My DS saw me cutting and wants the quilt but wants the background this black on black that I had in the stash so who am I to argue.  Here is what it looks like.  There are a couple of squares that I only had one or two of left over from mq5 because I cut wrong so I may change them up but for now...

My first mystery quilt.  I am an avid seamstress in alterations and clothing.  Looking forward to something different and learning something new.  Tnx.  Ginny

 

Me too, Ginny!  I've sewn clothes and done alterations for years.  Quilting is a kinder, gentler outlet for me.  I've enjoyed it so much that it is pretty much the only time I do sit down at the sewing machine.  Except during prom and pageant season.  My best friend owns a formal wear shop and somehow, every single year she talks me into helping during her busy season.  Honestly, I'd rather quilt!

Cindi:

 

Here's the batik quilt.  Excuse the cat, she believes she owns the bed. 

 

Cindi,

Sorry for the delay. I know I asked you to post a pic of this, and OMG! This is gorgeous! So is your 4 legged sweetheart. Still catching up to see the rest of posts to see if I miss anything......

 

 

Aww thanks Stephanie.  I'm guessing you are like me and when life takes hold, computers lose their grip!

Your fabrics should contrast quite nicely with your background.  A little somber for my tastes, but then I'm collecting red and black fabrics to make my son a quilt and that one will be grim.  He asked for a "Gears of War" quilt and the icon for the game is a blood red skull surrounded by a gear on black.  the husband of my local quilt shop owner said he'd have just said no!

Sandy,

I have just opened my email and found this announcement for MQVI. Although I have just finished cutting out 156 diamonds and stitching them onto 3" strips for a raffle quilt I am making, I look forward to joining the group to make my first Mystery Quilt. Although I do have several jelly rolls, I think I will use scraps from the diamond quilt to make MQVI. The Jelly Rolls look very festive displayed in my sewing room, I hesitate to take them apart and cut into them. So, on to my first of 600 + 2-1/2 inch squares.

I just posted my fabric for MQ 6 in the media section. It is the material from the kit I purchased from Missouri Quilt Co. The fabric I think is just beautiful and i can't wait to see my finished quilt with this. All these colors are out of my color zone that I usually use for a quilt. I couldn't resist this one.

Marilyn, one of the squares looks like lighting, with all those pretty blues and the black it reminds me of a storm at sea,your DS will love it.

When one of my kids takes notice of something I am making (he is almost 30) I will do whatever he likes.  I so miss the days of sewing clothes and costumes but quilts are pretty fun too.
