Starting March 19 Connecting Threads will be having a mystery quilt ~ quilt along.  I got this via e-mail.  Thought you might be interested.   You'll need to go to their site for more details.

Here is a direct link:

It is only four parts and 6 fabrics. I will follow along and wait until the mystery is solved before I decide. Aren't I a kill joy?  lmao

Thank you Mary.  I tried my best to do what you've done, but couldn't.  I even e-mailed Gimpy to just take this thread off because I'd messed it up so bad.   I have no clue how 2 downloaded on here.   I only wanted the one!  I tried to get one off but no such luck...... Knuppel  Knuppel   I may or may not do it either.

Checked out Part one. LOTS of little squares. Not much hint of what is to be.  Very Happy  Need more clues!

If I do this I will use one of the many bundles in the top of the closet. Not sure which one yet. Pinks and blacks maybe?

I had NO clue you had to be a member!   I signed up last night but haven't heard back as of yet if I've been accepted.  Wonder how long that takes?     I did look at all the different groups they had.  Interesting.....

You'll probably hear today. Being a member is no big deal. It is free and you don't have to join in everything.

I have been a member for a while and actually started a group for mini quilts but it has not been very active lately, well for a year I guess cause I haven't made to many mini quilts lately to talk about.

I am going to select my fabrics and start cutting today after some shut eye, I am off this weekend and want to work it. I have a feeling that I will finish this and want to make it as a queen. They give a great variety of examples for fabrics to select which helps...

Have patience Memaw you will be accepted in not time. I have to say the year I joined I was lucky I had posted my Aunt Millies quilt and it was voted best picture so I won the Golden Seam ripper award and some other goodies they sent me. Just the thought of people liking the picture was a great compliment in itself. The community is friendly, but they are allowed to talk about anything, I mean anything! I have seen some very interesting topics there..LOL

oh dear I am just chatty cathy right now, excited about a new project gets all the engines running..LOL

Did y'all collect all the parts? The third one is up and you can see the quilt on page 5 or 6. if you want to. I like it. I think I will print it, pick fabric for it, and stick it back in the closet.  lmao lmao lmao

That would be nice with a deer print. I can picture that. I am leaning toward a Texas theme. I thought all those stars would look nice in a western motif. But then there's the big roses and the ......ha ha, guess I haven't decided yet.

Well, its such a beautiful quilt you could go with so many different prints and themes.   I love florals so I'd have no problem going that way either.
