    Crafty a mystery quilt is one where you don't know what it will look like until you are almost done- so you pick out fabrics according to the first step not knowing if the fabric really will all work together- but I have found that the steps get broken down to the basics , so I end up doing quilt tops that if I had just seen the picture would never have tried because they look so difficult

    This was the Super Bowl Sunday quilt that I designed and hosted here. There is one in the works for April 14h & 15th and the details will be in the Blocks of the Month category as soon as I get some details worked out.

    There will be another one that is a larger quilt and will be a weekend mystery. I'm thinking of maybe doing that one as well since I enjoyed the first one so much.
    Yes, I am working on a new mystery adventure called "Blue Sky's". for April 14th and 15th As soon as I work out some details, the thread will be in the blocks of the month category.

    I am working to get the directions into one file. As soon as I have that done, I will let everyone know.

    I can certainly understand that feeling! There have been mysteries that I have done that I want to take and chuck the result in the trash, but then there are others that are wonderful! There have been ones that I have not liked the fabrics, but redone them in different colors and have fallen in love with them. It depends on how the fabric requirements are written and then how they are interpreted by the player. A mystery quilt is not so much about the quilt as the fact that you are doing it with friends, learning a new technique, chatting, eating, having fun with others that enjoy the same passions that you do. If it was all about the quilt, I wouldn't do them at all!

    Anna, I love the 1st one! (2nd one is great also) but the 1st one is is intriguing! Where and when was this hosted and do you know if the instructions are still available?

    Being the designer of the mystery quilts, I am always looking at other mystery quilt instructions and how they are written to make sure that I give the most information I can with each clue without giving away the final answer. This one looks difficult, but I know it may have been really easy.

    I'm doing my first one now - the 3-part McCall's Mystery quilt. I've loved the process so far and I'm looking forward to seeing the final result
