    Border Creek Station mystery quilt 2011

    Just got back from the first meeting for Border Creek Station's new mystery quilt and I am very excited.

    Is anyone else signed up for it too? http://bordercreekstation.com/index.html

    I decided to use the Seaside Romance colourway, it's so calming.

    It looks like a beautiful colorway. I look forward to seeing your quilt. I haven't heard of the Border Creek Station mystery quilts before.

    Me!!!!!!!!!
    I'm doing the BCS Mystery. Our LQS isn't doing it as meetings, just drop by and pick up the clues each month as they are available.

    I didn't go with the kit fabrics, as I wanted to use my stash. With it being only three fabrics, I had a hard time de-stashing, but did find two, and bought the third. Green background, and purple with a purple/mauve/white/green print. Could switch the purple/green background if I want to.

    Have the first clue .... though haven't started cutting and sewing as I've been focusing on my FWS quilt.

    Let's check back in periodically with our progress ... and compare notes with any others who are doing it. (I know there's at least one more!)

    Doing a mystery quilt is on my "TO DO" list but I have to finish the other works in progress first...my New Year's resolution for 2012!

    I think that's a great idea. Our "meetings" are about half an hour to an hour in length, more of a motivation to keep us all going, with dainties and coffee! We all pick up our next clue and then rush home to stitch it LOL.

    So first clue received...I'm very excited. I chose to do it as the kit as I don't have much yardage in my stash to pull from, I'm looking forward to how your quilt turns out!

    And I'll be looking forward to your progress too and seeing the different look of yours to mine!!
    I just need to set my FWS aside for a day and get at the BCS ..... before our 2md clue is ready! That'll sure push me into gear, to get it done and not have to go to the store and say, I haven't done it!

    I don't know .... she just said she'd let us know when it was there.
    The first one we got before the first of November.

    Have you done your cutting and sewing?
    Please do show your work after Clue One ..... and I'll post mine when I get to it.
