Nana:

... I also have a furbaby named Pancho.  He is a 5 pound chihuahua.   He will be getting a baby brother in about 2 wks.  His new brother is also a chihuahua and I think will be named Remy after the rat in rattatoile..sp?. ...  

I forgot to mention my two dogs... both little Chihuahuas. thanks for reminding me, Nana! Look forward to seeing a picture of your new one if you can get one. Mine won't let their picture be taken!

Thanks, Nana, for the introduction. I, too, have enjoyed reading everyone's bio/introduction of themselves!

Gina,

These are great! If you have enough, I think the read would also make a great binding.

Thanks Judy!  I love your idea of using the red for the binding!  If I don't have enough, I'll just buy more!

Thought I had introduced myself but guess I didn't here.

I am Pam from Sask Canada.   Currently we have 6 + feet of snow and I have had enough of it lol.  This is my first Mystery Quilt and I think it will be fun but a bit of a challenge for me as I am a very visual person and like to have the complete picture before hand lol.  If the quilt turns outt I will give it to my cousin for his wedding in June.  I chose a dark brown and a cream as I want neutrals since I don't know what colors they like.  I  will choose border fabric after the top is done.

I have 6 children DS 24(and married) DD 21, DD 19, DS 6, DS 4, DS 20months.  I homeschool the kids and graduated the oldest 3.  My dh and I have been married for 23 years and we also have a Belgian Shepherd named Cider.

I am a group leader for our homeschool group and in my other free time I like to read, crochet or scrapbook.

I noticed than another quilter sets her machine up so she can watch baseball while she sews.  My machine and cutting table is also set up so I can watch tv while I sew except I watch curling or Canadian Football, most of my quilting gets done during football season.

Hi!  My name is Janet.  I live in Milford Indiana and love to do mystery quilts so I thought I would give this one a try.  I purchased a bright light green and brown print for my light and dark colors which coordinate with a modern looking floral print for my borders. I must now get busy on cutting everything out.   I have been quilting about 15 years.  My mother, twin sister and I quilt together whenever we can.  I work as an ultrasonographer and clinical instructor at our local hospital so time is limited for me to quilt.  I try to do at least an hour or so after work and on the weekends.  Time for me to get started!

Hello. My name is Heather and I live on the South Shore of Nova Scotia.  I participated in MQ6 and have the top all done, backing ready but haven't done the quilting yet.  I wasn't sure if I was going to do MQ8, but have the fabric ready to cut.  I can't wait to see how the whole quilt is going to go together, using just two colours for the main quilt.  I picked out the the light and dark first, then went back to the fabric store later for the border. 

I love everyone's colour choices.

Well, I finally got around to taking a photo of my fabrics.  They have been cut out for over a week.  I have not decided which of the 2 border fabrics that I will use.  I guess it will depend on the way to quilt looks and how much I will need.  I may even switch to a red, white, and blue fabric and make it patriotic.  Possibly use it as a tablecloth for the 4th of July.  I can hardly wait for the next step to be released
