Darlene, I really know how you feel.  We lost our 23 year old son on Sept 11th at the World Trade Center. Things are never normal again, but you learn to cope with the NEW normal.  Not a day passes that I don't think about Josh, his infectious laugh, joy for life and his swagger.  If you ever want to reach out, I am here.

Hi

my name is Stephanie, I live in Littleton, Colorado.   I have 2 grown children and 1 dog.  I have been quilting on-and-off for 20 years.  I was taught by my mom, hand quilting, which takes a lot of time but is worth the effort.  I have never done a mystery quilt before and am looking forward to searching through my fabric stash tomorrow.

Hi Sandra

 

No I've never been to Norfolk but I'd love to one day. My mum and dad have been there and loved it.

Hi, My name is Francie and I live in the Grand Rapids area of Michigan. This is my fourth mystery quilt. I have not finished MQ7 yet, life got in the way.  I am hoping to get my fabric next week.  I am rather a novice with computers ... I know enough to be dangerous. I am looking forward to this adventure!

Bigburt, blue and red can be quite close in value.  Do you think you have enough contrast with your two colors?  Have you tried taking a black and white picture to see if one stands out as dark and one as light?  Just trying to be helpful...

I am so sorry for your loss.  It is so hard to loose loved ones but loosing a child is especially heartbreaking.   I am glad that you have gotten back to quilting.  It is great therapy.

Hello everyone, my name is Jennifer and I live in Winnipeg Manitoba  (Canada). Although I've been sewing since I was 11, I am a novice quilter. I've never made a mystrey quilt but very much looking forward to it. I've chosen a royal blue and white. Blue is my oldest daughters favorite color and I will be making the quilt for her. She has been a rock of support to me over the last 1 1/2. due to my PTSD from a violent attack. My body has healed, now I'm working on the mental part of it. I think that quilting will have will have a tremendouse effect on me, as well as showing my daughter how much I love and truely appreciate her. I have 3 daughters 29, 27 she lives in Alberta and my youngest is 15 and lives with me. I'm a nana too, to 2 handsome grand-sons 3,5 and 1 lovely grand-daughter that just turned one.

I really looking forward to getting started as weel as getting to know you ladies a little better.

What I make with my hands, I give of my heart.

Hi everyone!!  I'm Beth.  I'm originally a New Yorker/New Jerseyan, but for the past two years reside in Concord, NC, which is just north of Charlotte.   I absolutely love it here.   This is my very first mystery quilt.  A co-worker, Mama Vines, shared her passion with me and introduced me to this mystery quilt.  I have made only one 'quilt' (that's what I called it back then), but now realize I may have just sewn together a bunch of pastel gingham squares to make a baby's quilt.   I enjoyed it so much, I bought a quilt kit, but may have been a little over-zealous for my first 'real' quilt.   I very quickly got frustrated and put-off by the little pieces I had to work with, plus the bear-paw print!!!   So, I lost the spark.  But, it's BACK!!   I'm soooooooo excited, and nervous, about this mystery quilt.   All the questions that have come up, confuse me more, but I have Mama Vines to guide me!   I've bought my fabric, but am concerned about cutting just yet.   Going to make sure I understand it fully, before I start.   Anyway, I'm here, ready to get to work and can't wait to see my mystery quilt!!  Thanks so much for the opportunity Nana!!!
