I had participated in the Sweet Dreams Mystery Quilt, which was one of the first ones here. I had my blocks but had not finished. All the fabric got wet from the Estes Park Flood and I've had to throw it away. Had to throw away the directions too. Does anyone know if it's still posted on here or how I can get a copy? I don't really have time to hunt the web site right now, still busy cleaning up.

By the way, NEVER assume that if you live on a mountain side that you won't have a flood. We had 3" of water in our lower level, my sewing room and garage/storage areas. We were in Canada and by the time we got back the water was down but the mold had started and it's a mess. Never leave anything on the floor! Not even plastic bags, which is what the project was in.

So sorry to hear of your misfortune. I can't imagine what you are going through. If you go to the home page of QCA and scroll down you will see the Mystery Quilt on the left. If you go to the 4th page you will find "Sweet Dreams".

WeeOne I'm sad the flood ruined so much of your quilting stuff , not to mention everything else.  I hope we will get to see your completed quilt in the near future. I know that all the MQ are on the site I hope you find your pattern.

Thanks Angele. There was only a few yards of fabric that I had to throw out. I try to keep all my fabric in plastic containers. There were a few yards that had not been in plastic containers and will have to be washed to make sure there is no mold spores.

sorry you have experienced this.  Our dialysis center is on a hill.   Had a flash flood come though.   Quite a bit of excitement.  My office in the far front corner was the only space without damage.
