    I think your version is really pretty Sharon. I have my magazine, but since I am leaving for Calif on Saturday for 2 weeks, it will be a bit before I do the last part. Will surely post it as soon as it is done. Looking forward to see what everyone else has done. This is really a lot of fun. My first mystery quilt. Will do more....

    my w/m remains playing by the rules, and does not have the magazine. also, jo-ann's does not have it on the stands either. i'm still 'patiently ' waiting. just make that waiting.

    I have my top pieced except for the border. Decided one of the fabrics just doesn't work the way I want. So, I'm going to add a narrow sashing between the main quilt blocks and the border to better blend the fabrics. I may also change the border as the fabric that doesn't work is a key part of the border blocks. So my finished top may be deviating from the pattern, but I'll like it better.

    Will post a photo in a few days.

    jinnie maybe some over anxious quilter intercepted your mag while she was waiting for hers. she is getting her part three cut and sewn. afterwards she will either mail you your intercepted copy or mail you her subscription copy she was waiting on. either way hopefully you will get a copy soon.

    Thanks for the morale boost, Havplenty; really getting upset about this now. I think I'll try to call MCQ and find out what's going on in that department. Jinnie

    i'ma cuttin' and sewin' away. uh hmm.... thinking i can show & tell something next week. u see i ran outta strip sets for my two psqs so i am cutting & sewing new ones in between everything else. it's taking me a little bit longer. plus i gotta "new" singer 301a that i gotta get cleaned and oiled so i can sew on it as i just finished the cabinet. so i'm what ya call multi-tasking and it's all getting in the way of my finishing this quilt top.

    I am excited. After a couple of months of down time due to a broken elbow and surgery I find that I can cut material again! I don't want to over do it and set myself back on healing. So I figure if I take it slow and do a little each day I can continue with part three of my mystery quilt. Wish me well and here I go.

    sharon-- just cause you have a grasshopper and have finished doesn't mean it's as easy for me to 'hop to it'! LOL i'm working slowly, but i'm working! just think how fun it will be to be brought back here in december when i finish mine , lol! i'll get it done, it's all priorities! i have nearly finished a quilt top to be sent out and i have several swaps and boms, so i'm pretty busy! you're the hare, i'm the turtle! lol (again).

    Congrats to those who have finished!

    I have been working on mine, little by little. I still need to sew the rolls together. I am playing with ideas for the quilting of it, but this top is so different from what I would have chosen to make that I am having trouble coming up with a quilting idea.

    Iwillquilt, I wish you the best in getting back to quilting!

    Collector49, I can't wait to see your finished top!!!!

    Sewze, very glad you are now set to start the mystery quilt!

    Havplenty, I sure wish I could multi-task. I can see you now - one hand cutting, one hand oiling, one hand quilting......(grin)

    I've nearly finished the top of the McCall's mystery quilt. After completing the top, I didn't like the way the colors looked. So I modified the quilt to fix to improve that problem.

    I'll probably start quilting it in a week or so. I may post a photo of the finished top before quilting and will definitely post one after quilting and binding are finished.

    Cat- can't wait to see how yours finishes up I really like the pattern and will most likely do it again with different colors

    Sharon, I'm with you. I decided to finish the 'yuk' colored mystery quilt and have almost completed adding to the size. However, I have already picked out other colors for the repeat of the new rendition of the mystery quilt. LOL Jinnie
