    Thank you again CB for the mini mystery, and I will be waiting for the next one with bells on my toes and where are the whistles supposed to go???
    HA! I AM getting old! LOL
    It's called 'waste not, want not' here Omak, and I think they are both lovely.

    I love how you used up your scraps, it will be perfect for the isolet covers, and a lot of people like pick.

    I am happy that you found the mystery then. I am working on getting them all complied into one file so there is just one download, maybe save a page or two printing as well that way. I am also going to be including the cutting directions for different size blocks.

    I am very happy that it was so well recieved and even more so of the results, those that showed us their work did a stupendous job. Way exceded my expectaions of participation.

    I guess I should change that one day, I live in rural Alberta, just north of Edmonton. Literally in the middle of a farmers field.

    Funny story, we had family out last summer for a get together, one BIL emailed me for directions saying that the gps's can dump you in the middle of a farmers field and then laugh, I had to laugh, I had to tell him that it would indeed dump him in the middle of a farmers field.


    Glad that you enjoyed following our progression through the day, it was a lot of fun for me. I have a few other tuts in the planning stages as well as another mini mystery.

    I swear! (even though my mother says I shouldn't) It wasn't until after I snapped the picture that I realized I had turned the left and right upper 2x2 sections ... by then, no way I was going back ...
    This was a grand mini mystery, and I will be looking forward to the next one.
    In the meantime, I am signing off to go pay bills, finish my THIRD mystery quilt from that one day special that got CB so excited, and put all the scraps from both mysteries into a little quilt for incubator cover ... and THEN! Cut some more strips for another mini ... JUST because I want to do better.
    :!: :!: By the way, SUZIC46 ... is there anything in my block that looks familiar? 8)
    I see a star in the Center if that's what you mean - looks great! :D I'm sewing my last row on now so should be able to finish today or tomorrow. Minis are fun.

    SO wonderful!
    Sometimes, the most straight forward approach is impressive...
    I would do another mini JUST to be able to do something like your layout, KW
    good show!

    What a wonderful complement. Thank you so much.

    Here is the full version of the instructions, anyone on dial up or that has an issue downloading it, I can email it to you, if there is a lot of problems then I will take some of the pictures out to make it a smaller download.

    At the end of it there is the cutting directions for a 6, 9 and 12 inch block as well.
