    Mystery quilts are fun to do. I amazes me that everybody can use the same pattern and directions and yet each quilt is so different form the next one. They are so much fun to do! Thanks for posting this.

    Looks like fun, but I don't think I'll have time to do it this year. This is on my bucket list, though. I really think it would be a great time!

    What do you have to do to be notified of the beginning of the mystery? Is there anywhere where you can sign up?

    I don't think they send updates- you can get the first set of cutting directions now and then go back on New Years Day and get the rest- they also leave them up for a short time afterwards in case you don't finish in one day

    Judy here at the QB is going to do a short mystery quilt in January and a larger one mid Feb. I just finished her mystery train .. they are located in the block of the month forum here.. see what they are like instructions to finish to get a good idea of how something like this runs. I am off to check out that site and thanks for posting. I really like doing them.

    This looks fun and will be a first for me. I will reread the directions and get ready - after I finish the holiday gifts.

    I am doing Bonnie Hunter's "Easy Street". She has posted step #3 but I have not finished #1 yet. It is a fun one but getting the time to sew anything is my problem. Check out Quiltville for Bonnie's latest.

    i have done a mystery quilt in one sitting with several other women. i was a little slower than the others, so when they were done, they showed off their quilt tops. mine wasn't too much of a surprise, but i sure to like it. since then, i have used the same directions again in another quilt, and it looks so different. next time, i don't think i will sit in a room with others that are willing to show off before i had even finished. i wasn't THAT far behind!

    Like Franie I am currently doing Easy Street by Bonnie Hunter and am really enjoying it. It will be my first mystery quilt and I think I'll try this one as well. Hopefully I can get it done in one day, but I expect it will take me a little longer.

    Yep. Doing Easy Street too. I need to finish some projects before I take on any more new ones. Hope you post pictures!

    Franie - - I hope you're taking Bonnies' suggestion and at least starting each new step as she presents them. That way, you'll have some sense of what's going on.

    I'm in - sounds fun - hopefully won't be too complicated for a novice quilter. I can now spend a few hours cruising the web looking for some great sale fabrics

    Thanks, sharon b.
    I've done a few mystery quilts, and planet patchworks are well written and easy to follow. Think I'll do this one, too.

    This looks like fun. I think I'll shop my stash and see what I can come up with.

    Looks like fun, but I like to hang out with Judy on her Mystery Train quilts offered on this QB. We have a nice group of ladies who "travel" together and that makes it fun. Also, the banter back and forth is a lot of fun.

    Thanks for post it - I looked the other day for it.

    It's funny what some of us look forward to on New Year's Day.

    I guess I really love the discussion on the quilt the day of the mystery.

    I just wish they would not have it on facebook. I like it the way they had the chat room about 4 years ago.

    This looks like something I'd love to try. How many sections are there usually? Since I've never done a mystery quilt, the whole process will be new, hopefully not too challenging.

    Darn, I just don't have the time to devote to this, this year, will be making my daughters wedding dress. That will pretty much take up any free time I have.
