I broke my collarbone about a month ago and a couple days ago we sold our house so I will be not be doing much sewing but I will save all the clues to do later.  I love these mysteries and hate to miss one.

I am looking forward to MQ9.  Sure glad to hear no small pieces in this one.  I have completed # 6 and only need to quilt # 8.  I really need to post the pictures they both turned out nice.

I'm ready Nana, just hope I can see better by the 6th.  Have a Happy Holiday weekend and just get some R & R, while I go take a nap!

Elaine Phillips:
I think I may need to make a spread sheet to keep track of all the projects starting up this fall: appliqué group project, MQ9, Royal Union Sampler, is there more?

Elaine,

I have created 3 lists on my computer  #1 is all my UFO's, for knitting and quilting. #2  All the projects I have bought fabrics and yarn for but haven't started. #3 Other projects I want to make that I haven't even bought stuff for yet.

This seems extreme, but it helps my brain compartmentalize my past, present and future projects.

But then again, I am a bit OCD 

I will probably be adding MQ9 to the list....

Yes I do have to work four days...hihihi. And I promised to make book bags for the grade one class for Tuesday.  Too wet today to weed or go in the garden so I will make those bags.  Only five more sleeps...lol

BTW my SIL loves her MQ8.  With the binding sewn on it all ties in together beautifully!

I have to laugh at this Annie. You ARE a teacher, math right? So it figures. But I like your computerized list, the organization appeals to me. I should do something similar. I just don't know if it would help me stay focused on one project. I keep starting new ones.

I was at the quilt shop yesterday for a demo and ended up getting fabric with the free pattern for yet another quilt. I stayed up last night cutting out the pieces.

 I have MQ8 cut out but no sewing on it yet.  I am going to join in on MQ9 and try to do better and finish it.

Nana:

Donna

Great tutorial.  I wish she had told us the size of the blocks she cut from the strips.  The one nice thing about the Cozy Quilt ruler is that the line you place on the seam is the size of the square you want to end up with.  I can see how using any ruler is great if you aren't going for a particular size of square when you cut.    I guess if you play with it enough you could figure out what size you need your strips.

This will give you the sizes you need to make the strips to make your tubes.  It is on page 2 of the PDF. I would say once you have this you could use the "regular" ruler directions from Missouri Quilt.

I still have to put the borders on my MQ8.  Do not know if I will get to do this one, but I will keep watching

I am fairly new to quilting and have several quilt tops ready or almost ready to quilt, but am hung up on the actual quilting of them.  I think I have Fear Of Quilting (FOQ) disease, LOL!  I got snake bit by the Stipple Rattler when I had to tear out all the quilting of three different projects due to birds nests and pulled top threads.  Since then I've invested in a custom bobbin case for my Jenome which should help with that, and am about to purchase those little washer thingys that go in the bobbin case under the bobbin in the hope that a cure will manifest itself.  In the meantime, I've simply stopped stippling; I use straight stitch in the ditch, or echo stitching, instead.

Anyhow, I've never done a Mystery Quilt and am a bit trepidatious.  What if I finish the quilt and it turns out to be a design I don't like?  Ah, then I just give it away, I suppose; which would be no big deal, since I give them all away, anyway.  Guess that means I've nothing left to lose by trying the Mystery Quilt.  Right?

I'm still learning the lingo: What's a BOM?

That's a "block of the month". The one I had a hard time figuring out was WOF = "width of fabric". heehee There is a page on the QCA threads or help, I can't remember exactly what, but it has a lot of the lingo/slang shortcuts we use.

BOM is for Block of the Month. You can get a kit if you are doing it with a shop or guild for that month's block or you just get the directions.  They are good to learn new techniques.  I have signed up for - but still have to do - the free ones on Craftsy. 

The acronym that always get me is LQS - local quilt shop.  Always have to stop and think on that one.
