I took part Sat in an online mystery quilt. What an experience that was!! LOL I sewed from 11 am to 8 pm but had a finished quilt top when the day was over. It was fun to get the clues every hr or so and figure out what pieces to sew together. This is what I wound up with.


Have any of you done one of these?

Gay...that is really pretty!!! I can't believe I missed a mystery quilt! I love to participate in those....did two of them new years weekend and one on superbowl weekend. What website hosted yours? Do they still have the clues up?

Our clues were emailed to us so I don't think they posted the clues on the site. As a matter of face, I'm not even sure what the site was!! LOL
I can send you the emails if you would like though. I don't see how that would be a problem with them. Just let me know if you want them.
It's really amazing to me how you get so many different looks just because of the different fabrics. This is the first one I had ever done.

It was fun but made for a rather intense sewing day. I sure was tired by the end of the day!! LOL I would probably do it again though.

Ladies these are all lovely quilts. I have not done a mystery quilt online before. I will have to look into this. Are there different sites online that have them?

Kathy, I don't know the site that hosted mine. I signed up for it by email and all the clues were sent by email. I will be glad to forward my emails to you if you want to do one. I'll try to remember when I do another one to post here and let everyone know that it's going on.
