Thanks so much Nana for starting this thread!

Hi everyone.  Quilting.about.com is running a New Years Day Mystery Quilt.  The whole quilt top gets made in one day.  Several of us have been thinking about doing this quilt the week. Sorry the thread is literally starting at then 11th hour!!  It's still not too late to join us!

Information about the New Years Day project can be found at the website below.

Dive in your stash and let's have a party!!

 The cutting instructions are available and step 1 was posted so folks who live places were it is already 2013 can start sewing.

Here are my fabrics and the first step.

Here is my fabric and step 1 squares.  Hope lots of you will be excited to do this quilt too. It's my first time to work with this "quilt it a day" type mystery quilt.  I won't be able to finish this before the end of the month.  But I'm really liking these mystery quilts.  Work starts again on Wednesday and the kitchen remodel is happening in three weeks.  Sewing will be taking a back seat to other responsibilities.  Especially packing up the kitchen and giving more "stuff" away to simplify so I can sew more.   Happy New Year everyone!

Beautiful fabrics Judy.

I'm planning on raiding my scrap bag for this one. We'll see.

I'm loving yours too Mimi.

 I'll be taking longer than just tomorrow. DH and I will be going to the movies (if I feel up for it) then I'll be working on "Easy Street".  It's back to school for me on Wednesday.

Mimi--I like this!!  Sounds great things are happening at your house!

Kelley--I really like your fabrics! 

I have dogs to feed and exercise.  Then heading over to a friend's house were 4 or 5 of us will be working on this New Year Mystery Quilt.  Hopefully I'll be able to keep you posted on our progress!  We aren't all expecting to complete this in a day, but we are going to try!

Whatever you are doing, Have a Happy Day!
