    Okay, I hope all of you sign up for this monthly mystery just for us... Pm me with your information so I can make up the list to go in the hat...clear out your old PM messages as there will be alot of PMing keeping each month's recipient a secret. if you have ideas to add to this please speak up. I think the list of participants should be in to me by the end of February...I will need your addresses and personal email as well just in case....this way the first set of blocks should be sent out by the last week in March...If this is too early for any of you let me know and we could then all agree on a date to start...

    And count me in too!!!!!!!

    Will send email shortly with the basic contact info.

    Suggestion Honchey ... perhaps if you created a fill in the blank questionnaire, then we could all be sure to fill in the same info?

    Also, perhaps wome will want to know any other "rules" before signing up? eg. is it to make any block of your choice, for your destined partner? You had mentioned a theme, which might affect some saying yes, I'll do it ... or no, not interested in that.

    We have to keep it in this thread in order to keep it "in house"..We can call it the PC Riders Mystery Ride Blocks.
    I'm thinking that the person who receives the blocks for the month should pick the person for the following month.. pm me their choice to let you know of preferences for that person....

    Hi QuiltE, I was thinking of keeping it simple by making any block with color preference...or color/ fabric preference.
    the size has to be all the same...we can decide on that...majority rules. For example: I always wanted a red & white quilt...I have some 12.5" blocks done but I need alot more...I would like the background to be white on white. I would like the reds to be shades of red from true blue reds to orange reds...no muddy shades...no batiks just regular cotton, no shiney gold/silver overlays. can be floral/stripes/checks.

    PS, I don't know how to do a fill in questionnaire

    OMG ... where are my manners? .... I raced off to send you my "official" email to register and never said THANK YOU HONCHEY!!!!!!!!! ... for making a decision for all of us. And for once again, taking the reigns to coordinate!

    The questionnaire does not need to be anything fancy ... just a list of questions to suss out the info needed by the "maker", that we could answer and then send back to you .... to ultimately send on to the "maker"other person.



    Maybe I'm just tired ... thought I'm not sure what you meant by ............ I'm thinking that the person who receives the blocks for the month should pick the person for the following month.. pm me their choice to let you know of preferences for that person....
    Are we not sending our block direct to the person we made it for?



    Due Dates?? ... keeping with the calendar month makes it easy to remember. Guess the question is, is it to have it mailed by month end? or in the hands of the recipient by month end? Which if the mail is not cooperating, there is always a delay potential. Perhaps that the assigned names are distributed between the 15-22 of the month, to potentially give us 6 weeks?

    I'm not trying to over-think this or put in added hitches ... just hope that we can do the thinking upfront to be able to avoid any potential calamities. I want this to work!!!!!!!!! It's exciting!!!!!!!!

    QuiltE. when the person who receives the blocks they will pick a # from 1- 13?...I will have the corresponding name that goes with that #...No one will know but me...Ha Ha Ha .
    and Yes, everyone can pick a # ahead of time so that I will know the order of the recipient in order to send out the info.. is this confusing???

    I sent you a reply back ... so hope it makes sense too!

    Yes, I am a little confused ............. so you are saying we will send all our blocks to you, to re-send to the recipient?
    Being that we know the person it is for, would it not be easier to send it direct to the recipient?

    Or is it a double mystery ... where I would know the recipient's wish list, though would have no clue whose list it is?
    Could be fun!! ... though it would add to costs, with the double mailings, as well as the added time delay.


    OK ... maybe I am just a little dense here and a sure sign I need to go eat supper and then do some sewing.
    By the time I return, I'm thinking the rest of y'all will have cleared up the fog for this ol' cowhand!

    After I know what # is chosen...I will PM everyone with that persons mailing adress and all the info needed to create the block. We will all know the order of the #'s because they will be in numerical order...What you won't know is the person associated with the #..only I will have that...and because I know I will keep myself for last.

    How will you inform the person receiving the blocks for the month? If they don't get a name of someone to send a block for, they will know that they will be getting the bundle. Would the recipient have a "free" month where they wouldn't make a block? Would the blocks all be made from the information that you collect and then a couple of weeks later you send us their address? I'm a little confused how we would keep it a mystery if we know who we are sending it to. Like QuiltE...I'm full of questions but do count me in. I'm sure I will understand it eventually.

    The mystery will be only be that the recipient won't know of the person sending the block each month...I'm still trying to figure it out myself!!!!Disregard me being last it won't work out that way at all....I'm trying to figure out a way that everyone has a block every month to do and everyone receives a block every month...this way no one has to wait a year for a set of blocks...you just won't know who you're getting a block from...I will have to make a chart and Pm each of you separetely with a list in the order of who you will send each month...You must not reveal the order or give any hints... You have to let me know ahead of time if there are any fabrics you don't have on hand... I don't want any of you having to spend more $$$ on something you don't have...I want this to be fun!
    In the very beginning I will PM all of you a list of everyone and the list of their preferences...this will be your refrence for the blocks to be done...At the beginning of each month ( 6 weeks for those out of the country) prior to I will let each of you know separetely who you will be making the block for and sending it to...I think I finally got it right...

    Not sure what is going on here, or how we decide what colors to make for that person, if it is scrappy or not...or the main colors...flowers, red, white & blue, or novelty fabrics or batiks. One a month or two...six months would be maybe 12 blocks of 12 inch finished size? Do we make a throw or twin, or double, queen or king size quilt? Or a smaller wall hanging? Always need 'sideboard' when I go to make something 'cause it always grows larger, if I am cooking or sewing. LOL!!

    Yes, if I can understand what and how and when and where, I will 'trail' along with the PC Riders....'
    what if we had different 'foreman' every month or two?? Each of us who wanted to volunteer for the job could suggest a pattern, then for a 'sample' quilt in the end??

    I guess I don't understand either. Do we make the same block each month, but for a different person? Or do we all do the same block each month? Does someone tell us what block to make? How can we tie these blocks together into a quilt? Help! I think I would prefer to have a "set" of blocks to make - we all make the same block, but a different one each month. Sorry to be so dense!

    I am in too...I am sure you can get it all figured out....some how you will have to have 2 numbers a month or something so that everyone will always have someone to make a block for. Otherwise you will have someone who doesn't have a block to make...at least if I am understanding this right. Unless you do it like #1 makes for #2. Then #2 makes for #3, etc??? Then start again?

    BB's are on their way!! Anael--you have 2 things coming....an envelope (w/BBs) and a box (w/flannels). Those in Iowa should have them by Thursday and others in the US by the weekend I would guess. Sorry Canada, Australia, and The Netherlands will have to wait a little longer...a week+.

    Mirabelle--I don't think I every commented on your and DD's quilts...very nice. I really like the sashing DD came up with...wow!

    Anael--you sure have been busy with those smocks. Very cute.

    Honchey--those are pretty pinwheel blocks.

    Let me see if I can make it more clear...
    I would like for us to do another swap but this time with a little mystery..
    each of you PM me with the type (S) of block you would like to receive with the colors you like, fabrics(themed or not)
    colors you DON"T like... I will then PM all of you with the compiled list of your likes, dislikes. I will then Pm each of you separetely the end of the month who you will be making a block for the following month giving you at least 4 to 5 weeks to get the block finished and in the mail. Every month you will make a block for someone else... I was thinking it would be fun not to know ...a surprise block every month with colors you like.. not knowing until you receive it who made it for you... you would end up with 13-15 12.5" blocks with adding some filler blocks you would have a throw size sampler quilt top....depending on how many sign up for it.
    I don't know how else to explain it to you....I would like us to do something fun...one block once a month...if you want to choose a block each month, pick a quilt pattern to do...speak up. bring forth a suggestion.

    Wow, I'm gone for a day and come home to a great new Pony ride. Thanks, Anne--this sounds like great fun so count me in. I think I understand everything but have one question: will we make the same block for everyone but in their color choices or make a block of my choosing in that person's color choice or will the recipient pick the block and color choices?
    Ooh, this is going to be fun!

    Hi Jan, So glad you are joining...No, for the same for everyone...Yes, for you choose the block and pick fabric in the colors that the recipient likes. I know this is going to be fun...a little confusing in the beginning but it will get easier to understand after the first month has been done...

    Anael & Mirabelle, please let me know asap when you receive the bblocks so I can give the go ahead for everyone for show & tell.

    All right, I think I got it now. Thanks Honchey so much for hostin' this. Maybe we could have a theme for each month, like for April a star block, or May a flower?

    Jeanie, You can make the same block for everyone if you choose to...it's up to you to choose the block. that's part of the mystery. you just don't announce it so it stays a surprise This will be a sampler because not everyone will be getting the same block.. I hope. This is so that we can be a little creative and explore combinations and have fun doing it...
