Were your ears buzzing earlier today? Don't worry, it was just me making Step 5.
I had tried to figure how things were going to be the other day. Wow, this is the best
mystery I have done in years. (I'm 82,). The block is just beautiful and have a couple done. I know how I will spend my weekend!!! :-)

How very sweet. I am so glad that you are enjoying the MQ> Please post pics when it is finished. Are you from Moscow in Russia? Or somewhere.
Hi Nana.....I am from Moscow, ID......been here 12 yrs....we have moved all over the country....but most times were spent in New Mexico....am a Yankee from New England, but loved the s/west....miss it. We had a big guild in Albuquerque, I was on the Board for a long time, great teachers over the years, and would you believe.......I failed sewing in 7th grade (I hated it!!) :-)
This mystery quilt is so enjoyable. I will ask my son to help me post the whole quilt top, have to have dear person quilt for me on large quilts. I make smaller one for kids all the time...I did not use a very light fabric, but one that shows up in my Medium....I know I will like it no matter what!! I have been a widow for 7 yrs. now, so have more time than those delightful correspondents I have found here.
I could not think of anywhere with a city named Moscow. I have been on disability for 8 yrs and took up quilting after I had to quit work. It has become my passion as well as my therapy. I quilt my own quilts either on the frame with my midarm or on my DSM. I have really gotten to like doing the quilt as you go in sections. It seems to take longer to get the quilt finished but when that last stitch goes in then it is ready for binding.
I hope you will drop in and chat with us. Everyone here loves to talk to everybody. We love meeting people and learning about their quilting.

Welcome to the site M. Carol, so glad you are enjoying the mystery quilt.
Welcome M.Carol.We sound a lot alike.I barely made it through Home Ec.Does anyone remember those aprons we made?The teacher told me I would never be able to sew anything.Imiagine her surprise a few years ago when I met her at our County Fair and took her to see my First place ribbon quilt.But I think we all had other things on our mind at that age.
I am also a widow for 5 years.WE were married 48 years.Quilting has saved my life and my sanity.
Hope you enjoy it on here.
