    Does anyone have the instructions so I can finish this? All the links I've tried no longer work. I did not print them out as I worked, was just referring to the links as needed. Unfortunately, due to life interfering it has taken longer than I thought. I believe I am finished with step 4 (but not sure as the link doesn't work) and can't move on to the finish without the instructions. ARGH!!!!

    I printed out the instructions because I had a feeling that I would not get very far on it. PM me and I can send you the pages you need. My life also interferred with my quilting plans.

    Speaking of mystery quilts have you seen the one in a Magazine ? let me run and grab it .....

    It starts in the McCalls Quilting Jan/Feb 2012 and runs for three months ... I think I am getting addicted to these mysteries and my Quilt Club is doing one

    hmmm three months? that would be a challenge for me but i will look into it. the year one on craftsy is going to be a big challenge for me to stay mentally engaged but i have some riley blakes, amy butlers and kaffe fassets i think would look great in some of the blocks she is proposing.

    The page had been removed and I couldn't find it. Sounds interesting. I've never done a mystery quilt before. I'll be watching your post.

    essentially this pattern basically is a rail fence with two of the rails made up of three smaller squares. we cut a lot of squares and now that i have done it, there are some shortcuts that would help with less cutting/sewing.

    I was surprised they pulled it down so fast- I thought for sure they would leave it up for a bit so others could finish it, but maybe they thought people were printing it out to finish later ?

    They usually only leave it up for 2 or 3 days after its finished. It is now available for sale. If you liked this one, they always do another one on Super Bowl Sunday. I don't see the notice of it yet, but if they do like last year, it will be announced soon. I will put a message on FB and see what I can find for everyone

    On each step, there was a link to a PDF file. Not only can you save the PDF document to a file on your computer for future use, but you can print them out and 'hold them in your hands'. You should have said something and we would have helped you with that step

    That is what I did, both printed and saved. I can send a PDF if needed. PM me.

    OMG, Sitting on my computer, within inches of my fingers is the Jan/Feb issue LOL I had my DH pick it up for me because I wanted to do the Jinny Beyer quilt on pg 72.. skipped right over the mystery quilt on page 40!

    With all of the pieces that need to be made and some of the matching that needs to be done in this 1st step, it will not only be a challenge for beginners, but also for those of us that are a little weak at matching intersections.. especially on bias triangles. should be a good challenge, I'm in! I will start a new thread just for this one.. Whoo HOoo a new mystery quilt

    I am going to be finishing my next week. I got sick the day after the challenge.

    I love the pictures I have been seeing. I don't know if I am going to do the McCall's challenge since I have a goal of making lapquitls for my neices and nephews this year for Christmas and I have to get started soon.

    this magazine is only printed bi-monthly so this will take about six months to even get all of the directions.

    You are absolutely correct! I didn't realize this till I went and looked and thought about it... so that gives us extra time to work on the intersection matches! I also bit the bullet and subscribed to the magazine. Figure that the next issue will be here by the time my subscription kicks in and the nearest JoAnn's to me is a 40 mile round trip, so the price of the mag is a savings over the price of the gas that it would take to go and get it, not to mention the amount of money I would spend on fabric 'because I was in the store' ROFL.

    Oh, sometimes I just crack myself up! LOL
