PostSubject: Quiltville Mystery Quilt   Wed Sep 03, 2008 9:07 am

The gal at Quiltville has posted a mystery quilt. I've been thinking about doing it...can anybody talk me out of making all of those little pieces? :affraid:

O, Wow! That does look like it will be a lot of small pieces, altho it does mention strip piecing. Might not be bad if you strip piece. Looks interesting, sorry can't talk you out of this one, might want to do it myself. Good luck! O, Ann, you might want to change your link, it won't get us there. Might try "www." in front of the quiltville.com. I found the pattern, but it had to change the link first. :)

Nope, me either -- I'll not try to talk you out of it. If anyone can do a beautiful job of it, it's you, Ann. Go for it and share lots of photos. :sunny:

You guys are terrible talker-out-of-ers! I suppose if I wanted to bring home an elephant you'd cheer me on too? (Well...that might be kind of fun seeing how I would get him in the door? ) LOL As luck or fate..or whatever you call it goes..the quilt I'm piecing now will have left overs that would fit into that mystery quilt. Hmmm.....?

I love Bonnie's patterns (being the scrap-a-holic that I am). Can't wait to see what it looks like, might be another goal to do this winter. Cindy

Cindy..I'm not sure how long she keeps the mystery quilts posted? She has done a couple in the past and I see she doesn't have them listed any more. Can you save the directions in a file to use later? I'm not sure how to do that..so I jotted down the measurements and such. I think I want to use triangles on the sides rather than cut down the rectangles like she did? I don't want to have to deal with having bias along the edges...and it wastes some fabric her way.

I save the instructions - laptop burns to cd's so I have the info later. I have missed several things that were no longer on line. I just did a quilt which the blocks were cut diagonally - as in 1/4 square triangles - then put together in a fashion that I had bias all over. I "startched" the heck out of the blocks wtih faultless & dryel. Got the borders on yesterday - and no problem. Just passing on something that worked. Cindy

Okay, I'll try. Are you CRAZY!!! They now have bigger, one block quilts, panels that only need to be quilted, 18 1/2 blocks, other things that don't have so many little bitty corners that need to be notched up against each other. Do you need that frustration, that challenge, that NEED TO PROVE TO YOURSELF AND THE WORLD AT LARGE THAT YOU ARE A FABULOUS QUILTER?????

Okay, I kind of agree too. Have fun. Post pics when you're done.

Well..actually..I am a little crazy..but the quilt top I just finished had left over parts..and don't ya know..they just happen to be the right size to make some of those pinwheels! I think left over pieces are kind of like sour dough bread starter..one quilt leads to another..and another..
I was on the fence about this one. I really like scrappy..and I have a group of fabrics sitting on my cutting table that don't want to be put away yet. They enjoy my petting and loving glances. Smitten I think having left over parts pushed me into really wanting to do this!

Yep..it's all stash. I don't have to buy anything! I don't think I like that fabric that's on top of the gold pile though..now that I look at it? I don't think I'm going to use that one this time. :hammer:

To save to your computer look at her pattern where it says pdf. file at the top of each part of the mystery quilt. Click on that. When the pdf file opens click on the square disk on the upper left of the screen. Click on save. If you just want to see the pattern, click on open. This will create a file where you can save all your pdf. patterns. You will have to do this for each part of the mystery but it will list the name of the pattern and part one, part two, etc so you can find each part later. Remember to look to see what it names your file. It saves mine in Documents. Once your pattern is saved to find it go to Documents and there will be a list of your pattern name, tobacco road 1, tobacco road 2, etc. right click your mouse on the pattern name in the list and then click open or open with adobe reader and it will open the file for you so you can see it.

Thanks Quilterbee! I have the file saved. I tell you..I'm learning more and more each day. DH had talked me through the saving to pdf...but I appreciate you posting it in case anybody else wants to save the file and join me in my madness. Cheesy Last night he went to do something on the computer..and I corrected him! LOL
