    Fabric and cutting instructions were posted on the site today!!! I had so much fun doing it last year and I know there were a handful of quilters on this site that did it with me. Are you interested???

    A bit late in responding but I'm going to play again this year. It's so much fun trying to keep up!

    I've got my fabric all cut and ready to go. How about you?

    I had a horrid time trying to decide what to use. I finally selected this for the focus fabric. I've added a light blue for my light and a cream for the background. Lots of other colors for the scrappy bits. I'm ready!

    Let the fun begin! :D

    I would like to but not sure if I have the time or energy, I have not even cleaned up from before Christmas in my sewing room. And not sure if I can get up in time, I am nearer the west so the start time is earlier than if I was on the east coast.

    Hey! Just let everything go and play for the day! Trust me. All chores will still be there on Jan. 2! I know this for a fact.

    As for the time of the day, I'm in California. I'll have to be up by 6:45 to be awake enough to sew by 7. It's too much fun to miss. I know, weird! I sure hope you decide to come play. I love seeing all the varieties of quilts that get made from the same set of directions.

    I am not a morning person to start with and may not have my eyes open by that time, I wasn't worried about the mess, just the room to move in the sewing room, everything just kept being shoved aside in the midst of it and now there is more more shoving room so I have to straighten up some before doing anything, The kids are older and can amuse themselves, I did the one in the summer or there abouts and had a great time doing it, I ended up giving it away to a friend who loves it, I have a few days if I do end up getting my act together.

    I love the focus fabric you chose. Where did you find it, or what company makes it. I can see it in my bedroom.

    Thanks. The fabric came from my stash and heaven only knows when I bought it or what company made it. It was only a remnant. Sorry I can't be of any help.

    Mysteries are always fun. This one looks very manageable! I'll look for some focus fabric tomorrow. Thanks for the heads up! The quilts in the past have been so cute.

    I think I might try it. I have to find out what day we are suppose to go to my sister in law's house. I can't remember if it is the 31 or on the 1st. If its the first then I don't think I can do it. I hope I can it sounds like fun.

    The last one I did was a lot of fun. It was in the summer. I am still tied up about how early I would have to get up.

    Oh gosh that really sounds like fun, but this little angel in my avatar will be with me for the weekend. Maybe I can watch while she is sleeping.

    I would like to join in but am wondering if I get behind will the directions remain posted. Sorry for the silly question but I have little ones and can usually expect distractions.

    The "clues" are posted each hour. In the past they have been left up for at least 24 to 48 hours after the last clue. I usually just print the directions out each hour so I can finish at my leisure. I've managed to be behind for two years now and I have no little ones to distract me!

    These mystery quilts are lots of fun. My DH committed us to things that day, but I have the fabric and will be watching as much as possible.
    I have yet to keep up with the instructions. It seems to take me two hours to every one allotted!!
    If you go to the Planet Patchwork website, you will find instructions for many past mystery quilts, so don't worry about them disappearing too quickly.

    This sounds like fun! Are they taking you through one finished block with the instructions or the whole quilt?

    If you can keep up with the directions you'll have a whole quilt top by the end of the day. :lol: The important phrase there is "If you can keep up..." I always manage to fall behind shortly after we start! Am I slow? Couldn't be!

    Here are some photos of past mystery quilts.
