    Well completed step 4 and fifty of step 5. TaDa! I was relieved to find the wings get easier as you go along. Did a lot of unsewing when I first started, slightly dislexic so sometimes unequal sided triangles give me fits. Really fun, goes faster than I thought it would. Wholehearted thanks for the link, I guess; don't want to look, do want to look, don't want to look.......

    I can't believe that I had time over the weekend, being Christmas and all. I'm all caught up and getting pretty excited. I love all of the blacks since I have never used black much in quilts. My colors are blacks, creams, burgendy and seda green. I'm just trying to use up scraps.

    If one of the versions posted there are NOT the real thing, I'd like to make it also because it's beautiful! Yes, I read the last chapter of a mystery before I finish the book.

    No. I am using orange instead of red. Purple instead of black and aqua/turquoise where she has blue. My oranges range from melon, to orangy pink, to flourescent orange to pumpkin to almost brown. It should be interesting to see how this turns out.

    Carolyn, guilty as charged. I enjoy everyone's pictures but I haven't posted yet. One reason is there is already another person using the purple and green I am using. As soon as the quilt starts to come together I will post. I am still on step five but hope to get caught up this next week. People are saying there won't be more than eight clues so we are coming close to the reveal.

    Checking in and here's my progress: Part 1 and part 3 complete! I still need to finish my teal-blue small string blocks for Part 2. I sewed 20 of my red-burg-purple large string blocks today, just need to square them up, and I have all but 10 of them ready to sew, for Part 4. I have all the pieces cut for part 5 and part 6, but haven't sewed any as yet. And, part 7 is tomorrow! Wonder what part 7 will be?!?!?!! Plugging along "slow but sure" and loving making this mystery quilt. (PS will post a picture tomorrow on the other thread!)

    I still need to finish half of clue 6, and clue 7 is now up and running! I admit that I am running out of steam a little bit, but we are soooo close to being finished that I want to keep up and get it done :0) I am hosting a New Years Eve party tomorrow night, so I won't have a lot of time to sew today. Hopefully, the new year will bring in a lot of extra sewing time so I can get this baby finished.

    I agree! There are alot of parts on this step, and the reveal is on Sunday. I am not hurrying on this quilt though, there are a lot of seams and I want it to fit together correctly. Good luck everyone, can't wait to see some photos.

    So, I posted my progress last night. Now comes Part 7 and I am not finished with Part 4 so can't even start it. AND, the BIG REVEAL is Sunday......I know I can't catch up by then!!

    So my big question: do I want to see the BIG REVEAL as yet, or wait till I'm caught up?!?! Such a dilemma!
    I joined the Yahoo group and don't mind seeing how others think the mystery will turn out.

    But, I'm leaning towards waiting to see Part 8 till I am finished with the other parts. Bonnie did say the instructions will be on her blog till the end of April, so I have time, right?

    Anyone else thinking of waiting to see Part 8 till she finishes Parts 1-7?????

    Karen, I could try not to look at step 8 until I have finished 6 and 7. It wouldn't work-----I would have to peak.

    Karen,
    I'd wait with you I have some units done from each step (except the last two) but none is completely done, I was gone for four days spending Christmas with my in laws (no sewing) and I am leaving tomorrow to spend New Year's with my parents, so I have been baking all day and will be going to work in a few hours, so no sewing and none until at least Tuesday if I am lucky, so I promise not to peak until then
    Great progress everyone.

    I'm waiting too. No way will I be ready and I don't want to wimp out. It's a habit of mine. I might look next Friday if I'm caught up on 7.

    I admire anybody who is keeping up with this. I didn't really have any concept of how many pieces there are in this until I started cutting! Wow.

    Foxflower, I believe I can safely say that if I knew when I started, I never would have started

    I'll probably finish cutting certain stacks, BUT I'm not going to starting sewing on it again until after the big reveal--only 2 days away. If I don't like the pattern enough those squares are going to go back into the scrap bag for later. I sure do love a good quilt along though, so we'll see.

    I'm sure you will all be glad you did this Mystery! Her quilts all come out so different and are just beautiful! Hang in there everyone!

    Don't worry about being behind! I did not finish last years mystery, Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll, until the end of January. It turned out just beautiful and I am so glad I finished it. I just kept working on it as I had time.

    I kind of wish she had given us another week to work on Part 7 before coming out with the final part. I would like to be able to have more of Part 7 done. I know I will not have it finished by tomorrow night!
