    I FOUND you!
    How did you get lost???
    I am going out to the shop for some coffee and a smoke, then be back to see what my first job is.
    Hubby is down at the lower garage doing some wiring on the pump panel.
    Will have to pop out for a few hours in an hour and half, but will be back around noon (my time)
    so ... how long with this mini mystery take?

    I hope no more than 6 hours, but I don't want to leave to many stragglers either.

    Mini Mystery #1 by Cutebuns

    Cutting Instructions

    Blocks
    Dark A 1 3 1/2 x 40*
    B 1 3 x 40*
    C 1 2 1/2 x 40*
    D 1 2 x 40*
    E 1 1 1/2 x 40*
    F 1 1 x 40*
    Med G 3 1 x 40 * (use same color, different fabric)**
    Light H 12 1 x 40*


    Borders

    Dark A 1 1/2 x 80
    Med B 2 1/2 x 100 (to match the med above)

    Batting & Backing

    Approx 28x28

    Binding

    Dark 2 x 100 (this is what I cut for binding, use what ever width that you normally would use)


    *If using scraps, cut enough to equal 40 or more, does not need to be all in one piece.
    *Two strips if using FQ or one if using the full width of the fabric.

    **I used Orange in one and Red in the other one. (yes, I did two)

    okay, so you want me to cut ALL of the pieces before you are going to tell me how little to cut any of them? oh, the sacrifices one makes to keep up with the crowd! LOL

    So sad... Taking younger DD to college today. It's time, I'm ready for that :cry: But on top of that, we won't be home until late Sunday - so I'm going to miss the mystery! Will check in when I return, though, to see everyone's lovely mini's. Have fun!

    Your colors are very strong, Thimblebug ... and strong is GOOD!

    If I had seen Cutebuns' selection, I would have done something different ... not a problem! I had already decided to make a second one that was more organized, but I am trying to learn how to do "scrappy" REALLY good!

    We should be right here, unless Cutie decides to have an active chat room, also. Welcome aboard, Miss Mickey
