    Border Creek Station mystery quilt 2011

    Just got back from the first meeting for Border Creek Station's new mystery quilt and I am very excited.

    Is anyone else signed up for it too? http://bordercreekstation.com/index.html

    I decided to use the Seaside Romance colourway, it's so calming.

    It looks like a beautiful colorway. I look forward to seeing your quilt. I haven't heard of the Border Creek Station mystery quilts before.

    Me!!!!!!!!!
    I'm doing the BCS Mystery. Our LQS isn't doing it as meetings, just drop by and pick up the clues each month as they are available.

    I didn't go with the kit fabrics, as I wanted to use my stash. With it being only three fabrics, I had a hard time de-stashing, but did find two, and bought the third. Green background, and purple with a purple/mauve/white/green print. Could switch the purple/green background if I want to.

    Have the first clue .... though haven't started cutting and sewing as I've been focusing on my FWS quilt.

    Let's check back in periodically with our progress ... and compare notes with any others who are doing it. (I know there's at least one more!)

    Doing a mystery quilt is on my "TO DO" list but I have to finish the other works in progress first...my New Year's resolution for 2012!

    I think that's a great idea. Our "meetings" are about half an hour to an hour in length, more of a motivation to keep us all going, with dainties and coffee! We all pick up our next clue and then rush home to stitch it LOL.

    So first clue received...I'm very excited. I chose to do it as the kit as I don't have much yardage in my stash to pull from, I'm looking forward to how your quilt turns out!

    And I'll be looking forward to your progress too and seeing the different look of yours to mine!!
    I just need to set my FWS aside for a day and get at the BCS ..... before our 2md clue is ready! That'll sure push me into gear, to get it done and not have to go to the store and say, I haven't done it!

    I don't know .... she just said she'd let us know when it was there.
    The first one we got before the first of November.

    Have you done your cutting and sewing?
    Please do show your work after Clue One ..... and I'll post mine when I get to it.

    I'm doing mine in blue tones - I'll post my pics as soon as I get through Thanksgiving (going to US to be with my SIL) working on another project at the moment. So glad that we have a spot on the board for posting for it!

    Cover your eyes, LJS ...... you're going to spoil your Mystery!
    Although, ours might give you some insights into choosing your fabrics. I have no clue whether mine are going to work out or not. Just taking the leap of faith with the info we got up front!!! And the fact that I did one of her earlier quilts that turned into a prize winner at the Fall Fair shows this year, (two reds/first and one blue/second). It's the quilt with the pinao key border in this thread

    Fairer than Fair at the Fair ...... the Results are In!!!

    In the meantime, why don't you tempt us and show us your fabrics.

    This is kind of fun ... kind of a cross-Canada representation ... you in Ottawa, me in the GGTA, YukonViv is kind of obvious ......LJS where abouts are you in Canuck-land?

    I just hope that those like you, LJS, that we don't ruin the thrill of the mystery!!

    Hi All!
    I won't look I will keep my fingers over my eyes, It will be hard to type that way so I wish we really did have spell check on here.( Just so you know as a kids I opened up all of my christmas gifts and then rewrapped them) I don't do suspense or surprise well.

    I am from Southwest pa.

    Don't worry about the thrill of the mystery for me I would rather know so post away.

    Oh sure ... you think confessing to us will redeem you with Santa in time for this Christmas?

    I went yesterday to the LQS to get Clue #2. Got there and a sign on the door, we're closed today, sorry for the inconvenience. arrgggggghhhhhhh!!!!!!!!!

    So last night, instead of BCS, back to FWS!

    Hey Santa loves me just the way I am! Even if I am flawed, and can't wait. lol

    Well get back to that quilt shop and get that #2 clue today and post what it is right away because i will be away for the next couple of days so I won't be here to see it.

    (hey everybody do you think she bought my story? I hope she did and she posts. Keeping my fingers and toes crossed. teehee)

    Are you working on the farmers wife quilt also? I started it but have left it for a while so I guess I will get back to it also. I have 10 or 12 blocks completed. a long way to go yet on that one.

    tata for now

    Nope, not going to the LQS today ..... will be atleast Thursday, and if not Friday, for sure Saturday .... so you'll be back in plenty of time!

    Yeppir I was a latecomer for FWS. Only joined the Board in April, and soon after read about FWS. Being that I was a FW, it kept calling me!!!!!!!! I just HAD to do it. Did a few blocks in June, then nada til fall. Now trying to go full steam ahead as would really like to have all blocks done before the end of the year. 56/111 are now done .... so I may not make it, but would sure like to, as I want to start Pony Club and doing FWS blocks at the same time!!! There's several others that are in the early stages who are posting to the threads as they complete a pair or more .... so please do come on over and join in on those threads!

    Ok ladies, you have to keep me motivated, I'm quite the girl for my head becoming easily turned by a newer and prettier fabric.

    Help I'm kind of stuck on the Part 2 step, I have the two strips sewn to Fabric 1 what length are you cutting the sections into it says 3 X 8? that doesn't give me enough sub cuts. What measurements did you do for your subcuts?

    Just found this- sounds like fun ! I don't have a LQS doing it , wonder if they would share with a Quilting club/Group ?
    To keep your mind fresh- learn one new thing a day !
