    Yes Ruth you are doing good. But hee hee, you are just like me, can't decide on the fabric, don't want to use that, this, maybe that, won't go with this, and on and on. hee hee.

    I have my 2" light (white/off white) strips cut. Hope to get the 4 patches finished this weekend. I am still debating colors too. :?:

    I went to "Henry-JoAnn's" and had a spree like Henry does. Don't tell my DH-I came home with 2 huge bags of fabric. They had flannel on sale and I couln't resist. Looks nice on my shelf-waitng for me :lol:

    I'm making this one too. I have half my four patches done. Very diverse colors and prints. I hate not knowing what the finished quilt is supposed to look like, but that is the point of the Mystery Quilt. If it looks dorky, I guess I will donate it. Hopefully it will look nearly as great as Bonnie's scrap quilts look!

    Wow everyone is realy going at it. I don't think it will look dorky. At least I hope. I guess it maybe up to us with colores. And maybe I should make a trip to Henry--Hancocks store. No, I am trying to be good. My husband is going to make our back carport into a sewing room for me but we have to buy all the materials. And this morning he mentioned that every time I spend money on fabric that is that much further to it getting done. So the question is fabric or more room. Hard one :!: :D

    I'm having the same problem deciding on the colors. But will get started this week-end. I have never done a mystery quilt before, i think it's exciting to find out the steps one at a time.

    Thanks for posting about this quilt. I am going to give it a whirl. I have never done a mystery quilt. I am going to start my four patches tonight after my son goes to bed.

    Ok... I finally got my four patch fabrics cut into 2" strips. I plan to actually sew them together tomorrow night. My plan was to work on them over the weekend but was hardly home. We had a beeeeeeeaaautiful sunny weekend here and just HAD to get outside and enjoy it. Trevor and I took his 6 year old neice to the butterfly exhibit and to her swimming lesson.. His sister's birthday was Saturday so we had a little party. Yesterday we went out to breakfast, had his other sister and 1 year old nephew over for a visit, then we were off to my Mum's home for supper. whew... no sewing done at all this weekend!!

    Anyway, I am attaching a photo of the fabrics I will be using in my 4 patches. I cant' wait to start sewing them up!!!

    Cheers

    I like your fabric selections Aggi.

    I got 70 ( yahoo only 80 more to go :lol: ) of my 4 patch blocks done over the week-end. My blocks are real scrappy looking.

    Well I am still finishin up something I had to do, inbetween going to the dentist with an abscess and he gave me antibotics, which either the antibotics or the abscess threw me for a loop. I am so tired. I do a little then sleep, and mostly sleep. Oh well I will catch up with everyone this weekend. Hopefully she does not put up step two yet. I need time!!!!!!!! :?

    That's me too. I thought I was having a split personality yesterday. Sometimes I wanted exactly matching and other times I mixed them, so it will look pretty crazy. I am making extra in case I decide to toss some.

    I am ready for Step2!!!!

    I have 1/2 done. I have set aside tonight to finish them though. lol I have to sew AFTER my son goes to bed. Otherwise I get nothing done.

    Mine are scrappy on the dark part. All my light patches are the same fabric though. I didnt have very much in my scrap pile that was light.

    All my 4 patches are ready. I have extras too-just in case. I tried to weed out the duplicates too. Went quicker than I thought. First time doing a mystery. This has me out of my comfort zone!
