Here's mine. I did not have enough of the pink but I had the same colour in two prints so I used them both.

 

I like your block Valerie. Very pretty fabrics.

Thank you Nana for hosting the Mystery quilts.  It was an interesting quilt and will turn out very nice.  I may not do this again though.  The steps came too fast for it to be enjoyable.  I have kept up because the quilt would not be a "mystery" if I didn't, but everything else in my life had to slip.  My suggestion would be to have  3 weeks between the steps after step 1.

I've done quite a few of the MQ's.. in fact 5 of them I think. Some I was able to keep up with, others I wasn't.  But I always do them because I enjoy getting the pattern and even if I can't keep up we can post anytime if we need help. I am behind right now too but have set aside this weekend for a 'sew-a-thon'. Three weeks would be too long in between.

I also have done the MQ's from and including MQ 3 and on to this one.  Some of them I have been able to keep us, and others I have not.  I think 3 weeks apart is a lot most of the time.  When making over 300 pieces into blocks, two weeks might be nice, but with as many of us as they are, life gets in someone's way no matter what you do.  This one I am behind too, but I think I can get caught up by the end.  Thank you Nana for all you do for the Mystery Quilts.

I agree 3 weeks seems a long time, specially for those over achievers (lol) that get done on time. I think if I had that long I would probably still procrastinate and be rushing in the end. I remember I think #7, was 2 weeks and was always jones for a few days to get the new step. so all depends. And sometimes the step coming out before your ready helps some people to get the pic a little better. When putting small pieces together sometimes takes a while but then when you start turning them into bigger blocks goes quickly. But where ever I am I don't find the mystery ruined. I think most of the work is getting colors picked before you know what it is going to look like. so once you start cutting and cant be changing your mind. doesnt much mater to me where I am at when the big reveal is posted.

And yes thank you Nana for all you do!, looks like it is going to be another nice one you have created
