..Thinking about it...I bought some pink material that I thought I might incorporate into a mystery quilt.  I have lots of projects pending...it may have to go into the pecking order...but I'm thinking about it.

Richard L:

Sandy,

Sounds like this might be fun so count me in. Any chance of getting MQ1, MQ2 and MQ3 patterns so I can play catchup.

Richard,

They're in the Mystery Quilt Workshop.

Sandy,

Count me in. I love making the tops. It may never be a completed quilt but it will be a completed top.

I have a couple of fabric collections sitting  around here that need a pattern. we will see if any of them will work with this one. Can't wait.

I'm glad to see some more interest ... I was beginning to think you were all tired of MQ's.  And this really is a lovely pattern that I know you will like.  I'm looking forward to seeing all the fabric selections.

Richard, if you have trouble finding 1, 2 and 3, let me know.

Hi Sandy, Can't wait to start another MQ. Hope you will give us the hint as to the size print we might need to use.  Don't want to use a large print that will be cut up into small pieces.This will only be my second MQ. But the last was a lot of fun.

I think I might try this one.  It will be my first so good or bad I will always remember it.

I am in Sandy.  I have completed all three of the previous MQs and have been delighted with every one.  Can't wait to find out what size this one will be so I can start planning who will get it when it is done.

Sandy I sat out MQ3 so I might be ready to jump in on this one.  What will the possibilites for a finished size be?  DIL has been hinting that she would like a quilt after seeing DGD MQ2.  They have a king size bed but I might be able to fudge and make a queen size since DS is so bad about stealing the covers that they each have their own.  :o)

I am ready to do another MQ - I skipped the last one because of too many other things going on at the time (but after seeting the gorgeous quilts that came from it I'm sorry I didn't do it).   So I'm in for the MQ4!

Ok, I'll answer a couple of questions, but don't expect to get anything else out of me before the instructions are posted!  :}

The finished size is 60 x 84 with one 5" border.  If you want to do king size you will probably need to purchase double the amount of fabric shown in the directions.

Joan, as far as the print goes ... I used a large medium but probably would have been better with a small medium or large small print.  Does that make any sense?!

Prairie Dog:

This one was the first MQ that I did too.  My LQS rented the local church hall and signed up a group of 30 quilters.  On Friday night the LQS brought in dinner and we started sewing at 6pm.  About every 30 minutes they would post the next step so you didn't have time to finish each step before you moved on to the next but you got enough of each step done to keep going.  By the time the final reveal was done at 11:30 you would have enough blocks done to lay out your partial quilt to see what it would look like.  The LQS gave away lots of door prizes and great fun was had by all.  It's not as frantic the way we do it on line, but if you ever get the chance to do one with a group, I would recommend you give it a try.

One of my LQS does "Friday night mystery" one night a month.  The gals do a pot luck and then they quilt.  I have never done one with them so I don't know if they work on a step each month or a whole quilt like your group did.
