Good morning!  I am a new club member and I am excited about this new Mystery Quilt!  Yesterday I pulled 3 fabrics out of my stash and started cutting.  Can't wait to begin sewing!

And here comes Curious George. When I go to print the PDF file I only have page one of the file, not all the pages. What am I doing wrong this time???????

Pre-Batik questions. This is my fist time using batiks. I usually use 80/12 needles for piecing and 90/14 for quilting. Is there anything I should know about batiks being unique for thread or needles?

Welcome Lorraine~

Good to see you jumping right in. There is a lot of excitement about this Mystery Quilt. I think before it is done, we will be on national tv! Our cheerleadning squad alone is going to need a football stadium to cheer us on. This is my first mystery quilt and I cant wait!

We'd love to see some pics of your fabric choices.

pat, i like the second one best, too. but the first one has been in my stash an awful long time, so i think it is time to make them into a quilt.   that's why i'm leaning towards the first one.   if i don't use them soon, i'm afraid they will crumble into dust     gini

I use a 90/14 needle for all my piecing even batiks.  They really aren't any different to work with than any of the other fabrics.   Just really beautiful.

and now, i  am picturing our cheerleading squad being hoisted, couches and all ( it sounds like they may end up with a reclining couch each)  a bushel basket of chocolate and at least that size basket of popcorn.  they're going to need seat belts so they don't fall off with all the giggling, while they are being lifted into the stadium.  this is getting big girls, you need  to practice your couch cheers.    gini

I have question about the cutting instructions.  I am new to quilting and this is only the 3rd quilt that I have made.  I noticed that in the instructions there are A LOT of HST.  I have HST paper where you sew pieces together and then cut out the triangle.  Can I do that here?  If so what size paper would I need and what would the cutting instructions then be?  THANKS for your help in this matter

Gini

The first set of fabrics is very pretty.  If you choose to go with those I would use the "blue" one for the dark, the print for the medium , and the red for the light.  I think it will make up very pretty even though you don't actually have a true light, medium, dark but there is alot of contrast with your fabrics.

I really like the fabrics in the second set as well.

The HSTs in this project are not put together the way most HSTs are so the papers won't work.  Just be accurate with your cutting and take a deep breathe and relax.  The pattern really isn't difficult.  For some reason most of use quilter's see the word HST in a pattern and begin to panic.  This is our second MQ using triangles.  After people did the first one they were much more comfortable working with triangles and found that they really aren't so scary.   Even though you are new to quilting I really think you will be alright.  I will lead you through each step.
