    I love mystery quilts. I have done some from Patchwork Times and A Pocketful of Mysteries but I've never done one of the Planet Patchwork ones.

    I will go over to see what it calls for this year to see if I have the fabric. If I do it would be great to be able to work "along side" others.

    you can do a scrappy version like pamesue and chose whatever colors you like. i just received a jelly roll in a swap so i will post it as soon as i have a chance to look through things. for my light i was thinking white but i also have a light tan tonal. whichever color looks better with the jelly roll is the color i am going with.

    i am planning to do this mystery quilt without buying one piece of fabric.

    i think that is what sharon had in mind for us to do it along the way together. if you havent done a mystery quilt before, the ones that last one day, the clues are usually posted by the hour. there will also be a chat group online for this new year mystery quilt so we will probably have that site up simultaneously as this quilt board. it should be fun.

    i hope you are doing better patty.

    this quilt along with be free as the clues will be posted online for making the quilt. on new years day the planet patchwork website will be posting clues probably by the hour up to the finished quilt. there are a couple of their quilt alongs that are still online.

    here is the link for the "gems in the ruff" one day quilt along.

    Havplenty- I am so glad you mentioned a swap here I have several bags of strips from a swap here this summer - WOO HOO now I don't have to worry about that part

    xtgirl- you can make your own Jelly roll it is only fabric the width of the fabric 2 1/2 wide - make it scrappy

    Havplenty Thank You for answering all the questions- I was at work all day , I appreciate your helping so others don't have to wait hours until I get home from work

    yep plan on being here and I already signed up early for the hourly door prizes from Planet Patchwork - be sure to go to the main site to sign up also- I tried to do the chat from their site a couple years ago and didn't have much luck

    here are two color ways i am considering. i am leaning toward the brown/green and using the jelly roll for a bento box quilt.

    i wonder on the browns/greens if the yellow could be considered a medium. what do you all think? could i get away with it being a medium for that 1/2 yard? i wanted to use the pink and brown but didnt know what to use for the medium 1/2 yard. the piece next to the pink/brown is just an extra i could include for color. what you think?

    I almost bought a jelly roll today but didn't think it would get here in time. I don't have a stash really so not sure I could pull together a grouping. I do have a lot of moda Amelia in purple and some light purples..wonder f I could do that...I didn't see any elly rolls the last time I visited the quilt shop.

    try scrappy so the colors do not need to be in a grouping. i dont have a stash either as the fabrics i have were bought for specific projects. i had received some fabrics in swaps including the brown/green group and the jelly roll so i will use one of them. i am not buying fabrics but will use what i have. be creative if you need to be. i am sure scrappy
    will look just as good. dont fret it too much. let this be fun, use what you have & come and play with us.
