    No, do not have the time. Do not have the inclination either. Here is the biggie, do not have the Patience.

    Actually, I think they are probably sold at any store in that price range. I bought them at the 99 cent store but I think they are only in a few western states. They usually blow out pretty fast and I am guilty of buying 10 packages to give one razor to every member of my quilting class.

Size:  458.6 KBThis is how it turned out. I learned a new sashing technique that was fun. Learned a bit more about dealing with pastels. yes, I am addicted to them. I am thinking of joining the one on the board that is coming up in April. Worse yet, i get addicted to doing challenges and contests.

    is your quilt from the 2012 about.com mystery challenge? i was thinking about doing theirs also but i wasnt particularly fond of the one from last year so i passed. i do however like your quilt. if it is their current mystey quilt project, i will go take a look at it.

    My LQS (the shop closed in 2008)used to offer a new Debbie Caffrey mystery quilt starting in February and ending in July; the reveal was in October. I really enjoyed making the quilts every year, it was fun to see what the end
    result was.

    Here are some of my versions of Debbie's mystery quilts.

    I have done about 5 or 6 of them with my quilting friends from church. We have a great time doing a mystery. We will usually do one each year.

    Yup, I like them too. It always pushes me to do something that I would not have tried in any other circumstances.

    I have done several and find them on the the whole to be fun. You sure learn to trust your work to the leader of the group or the online group your working with. Not all results are beauties, but I have always learns new techniques.

    I have done the last two Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilts and a Planet Patchwork Mystery Quilt. Mine all turned out really nice. They are fun to do, and I think almost anyone can do one. They are step/by/step. Join in and have fun! I'm looking forward to this one!

    I've never done a mystery quilt. I know with fabric prices the way they are, I would have to see the quilt first before using my fabric to make it.. LOL
