    I do enjoy working on projects here at the forum with you folks. I've never done a mystery quilt and it would be fun!

    We can sort of draw straws to see who makes the design and instructions. The design can either be created or a person can just use a pattern from a quilt magazine and keep it secret so it's a mystery to the rest of the folks.

    Cool! I sort of have one in mind for Christmas. I've got the pattern and instructions if anyone wants to leave it to me ...

    We'd be using Christmas colors.

    I've always wanted to do a Christmas quilt. I'm doing my very first Mystery Quilt now, but it'll be done by September. Who am I to say I can't work on more than one project!

    Sign me up girls!

    Mystery quilts are fun but I don't like one that is drawn out too long. Too easy to loose interest. This would be a good time to start a Christmas one so I say go for it.

    I would be willing to do it and as far as I am concerned Cordelia can design it! Have lots of Christmas fabrics - smaller pieces, but can always buy more!!!!!! Got a new Christmas piece in the mail just the other day!!

    I hate to do it ... but i have to open the trunk of my Quilt Police cruiser and pull out the wet blanket. :?

    maybe ...

    you can't use a commercially produced pattern unless you get written permission from the creator and/or magazine in which it was published.

    otherwise ... as long as the pattern and instructions are entirely "home grown" ... have Sherlock grab Watson to get the game afoot. :P

    I'm not sure as I don't know how to paper piece or use templetes yet. Could we change the colors? I don't know how a mystery quilt as a group works?

    Count me in! I have been eyeing up the mystery quilts online and have been wanting to give one a try. It would be oh so much fun to do one with the lovely ladies on the board as I'm sure there would be tips and pointers with things get rough.

    I also haven't made a Christmas quilt and would love to do one. I'm getting excited!!

    I have to agree with Pat, I don't want to be caught in a copyright infringment. I would also need more details: Whoever the creator is does the quilt themselves from their instructions before posting (just got caught up in an on-line project tht went haywire).
    I've done lots of mystery quilts and think they are so much fun would love to join in on this one.

    Can you tell us a bit about how it works is it like where someone makes a block and then sends it on to the next to make a border. OR do you just print instructions and we all just get on with it with our own materials and follow mystery directions. LOL does that make sense. Tell us more, would be interested if its not one to post out, because its not fair because of the postage costs.

    In the past I've always been give a list of fabric requirements with things like dark should highly contrast light or this 'color b' would be a good place to use a large floral or focus fabric.
    Then when it starts, you get clue #1 which may be cut and sew 50 'blah, blah'. Then you wait for Clue #2......
    I have done Debbie Caffrey mysteries and Merry Mayhem, Inspector Cluesew. Go to www.Planetpatchwork.com they usually have a mystery going.
    A small disclaimer the one I mentioned in above post was a BOM not a mystery.

    Hi, everyone. I've been ouside all day today and am a little down from heat today.

    I had a pattern in mind, but maybe with a copyright issue, should defer that one.

    But, I have lots of designs.

    I have a Christmas wall hanging I designed. I don't want to give too many details right now and spoil it. There is one piece of applique on it and a little bit of embellishing. I would have to post the applique piece or e-mail it w/instructions.

    There would be some stripping and paper piecing. I would provide the piecing template in the e-mail.

    I don't want to give too many details. I want to keep it mysterious. If anybody is interested, I'll post the first clue, I'll call it, to start it.

    I think it would be fun..........I haven't paper pieced before, but will give it a try. ?
    Would this project just be a wall hanging or can it be made into a quilt
