    Hi, I thought somebody might be interested in this. I asked them and got permission to post a link to this on here. Sounds like fun if you like mysteries
    :P
    New Year's Mystery Quilt Posted!

    The fabric and cutting instructions for the New Year's Day, Merry Mayhem's Case #126, "In the Pink," are now posted at Planet Patchwork. You can get to them by clicking on http://planetpatchwork.com/Case126/Case126Part1.htm The mystery will begin a bit earlier this time, at 10:00 a.m. on New Year's Day 2008 (eastern standard time in the U.S.). We think you will really enjoy this new mystery, and the fun that comes with the camaraderie and mystery. We will once again open a chat room and give away lots of door prizes! Be there or be square, and share this newsletter with your friends.

    It looks like fun I printed my directions and going to look at my stash now. I'm going to give it a shot. It might feel good to get something completed for a change.

    Im ready, well almost I still need to mark the angles on the squares but will do that today. This is the fabric I choose. Can't wait to see what it will look like. Its not easy to deside on fab when you have no idea what it will look like I hope I choose right. the scanner made fab look alitte funny but gives you an idea the pink is a print and the teal is a batik

    Hi, have got my act together and got my fabrics sorted. I am doing a scrap one, cause I don't have 2 yards of anything lol. The strips right across the width are a bit of a problem, am gonna cut 21" strips (width of fat quarter) I spect they will be used in strip piecing but if I have to join em, so be it, where there's a will and all that :P .

    Am really looking forward to seeing everyones interpretation. Yvonne, you and Connie inspired me to have a go in chat yesterday. I feel so much betta now I'm doing something, thanks so much for that :D . You said Marcella is doing it too, Should be alot of fun. Sara: I'm not sure how well their chat is gonna work for me cause when I tested it as reccommended my putter wasn't very happy, but I will be there even if you can't see me lol :lol: I will be starting at 4 in the morning, just think of that lol :shock: . so it's early bed tonight.

    Are we going to put them all in the same thread? I think that would be a nice idea, Can't wait to see everyones tops

    Shelly, Marcella and I were just saying how enthusiasticly we are looking forward to this project tomorrow. We needed something new and a new experience (never have done a mystery before) so it's a good way to spend a New Years Day!
    4 A.M.!!!!!!!!??? I was complaining about 7 A.M. Guess I'll keep my mouth shut now!!!

    I agree that we should post our pics together. It's fun to see how they are the same and can turn out so very different. If you're using your scraps I am betting it's going to be a beautiful bright and cheery quilt! Connie has given us a preview of her quilt. It's going to be a beauty!

    'til tomorrow, Ladies!
