I  am sooooo happy! I just finished hand quilting a quilt I started in January. I designed it as I went and at times it was slow going . Also didn't work on it at all during the summer. I put in 176 hours  actual work not counting thinking time. lol.  I am always up for a new project, especially a small one. I am also planing to finally quilt a large lone star quilt that has been waiting. I will machine quilt the dimonds and hand quilt the large 21 in. square corner blocks. At least that is the plan right now. I hope I can use my stash for MQ7 , but if not , no problem an excuse to go visit LQS is good too.  The fun will soon begin.        Of course I'm already having fun.!

Life is like a quilt...bits & pieces, joy & sorrow, stitched with love

For those that would like to start looking thru your stash you need to find 15 to 20 fat quarters that coordinate well.  or about 1/4 yd each of 10 different coordinating fabrics.  MSQC is making up a kit for this MQ.  I havent heard if the link is open yet.

Don't stress the fabrics just pick coordinating colors and remember to use a variety of lights, darks, mediums.  I will beposting full requirements on Friday.   But thought maybe this general discussion of fabrics will help you shop your stash.

I have 2 sets of 20 FQ's of "Over the Rainbow" batiks by Moda Laundry Basket Quilts, one in warm colors and one in cool colors.  Do you think that one of these sets would work for this quilt?

Ooooh!  My favorite part of making quilts picking the colors.  This will take my mind off of Sandy for a while.  Off to church but my mind will be on colors.  Thanks Nana

I'm looking forward to this. I've never done a mystery quilt. A few weeks ago I got an assortment of 100 batik FQs. I didn't have anything in particular planned for them, so I guess I'll use some of them for MQ7. My problem with using any of my FQs is that they look so pretty on the shelf that I hate to disturb the arrangement!

Nana, you haven't said anything about the need for contrast or scale of prints.  Any suggestions there?

Just that they were on sale... I can't even remember which web site. But they are so nice! Each one is different.

Carol, I can relate to that. I won a door prize that was a basket full of FQ's that I still don't want to touch, but may use it for the next MQ. I am waiting to see what MSQC comes up with I loved the last kit they had.

OK, I have found 10 fabrics from my stash.  It was 20 fat quarters or 10 quarter yards, so I am assuming there may be some long strips that one can't get out of a fat quarter.   I'll post a picture later.
