    I'm thinking about doing the mystery quilt here - as long as I can find the yardage in my stash. I really don't want to buy more fabric beyond what I need to buy today that is lol. I *might* have enough yardage for a green/red one or maybe a yellow purple. I'll have to look and see what I have. I'm intrigued by it so I'm going to really try to make it work.

    I'm going to start on a corduroy quilt this weekend and do not have the colors and yardage that I need to begin so off I go to Fayetteville to get some...

    Hi Everyone!

    What a week this has been! Only worked 4 days, but it seams like 6! Now I can get back to quilting. I am going to put the blocks together and take pictures of my progress so you will have them for your assembly process. I hope that won't take me all day like the cutting instructions. Of course, I had to start from scratch with them . .

    Ok, so how many are going to be joining us next weekend to work on this quilt? It is not going to be a very big quilt, my measurements show it at about 44 x 55, but it you wanted to increase the borders, you could make it a smaller lap quilt. I am sure that the measurements for the fabric that I have given are plenty for any increase you might want to make.

    Are the directions so far easy to read and understand?

    Are there any questions that you have that you would like to ask?

    I will be here for the weekend, so ask or comment away.. we have one week and a day before the party begins and I want everyone to be ready when I release the 2nd clue on the 5th.

    Does everyone have their time zone figured out in relationship to mine? (MST Arizona) I posted a link earlier that shows time zones that should help everyone with that answer.

    Looking forward to this, it should be fun!

    Please don't misunderstand, you do not need to use the colors that I have listed. These are only examples of what complementary colors are on the color wheel. Please use any combination you want, it is your quilt.
    Here is an example of the color pallet that I am using.

    I did not misunderstand you. I want to work from stash. Most of what I own are prints which won't work here. I have mostly novelty prints. You put in your instructions that Color A and Color B should be direct complementary colors on the color wheel. sorry about the big letters - I copied and pasted.... Anyhooo for me - red and green is too Christmassy although I might end up going that route if all else fails... Looking at what I own, orange + blue or purple + yellow are about all that is left. I don't have blue/green or yellow/green. What I have left is pretty much basic colors or muted colors which will not work with this. There are only so many combinations to be had on a color wheel unless you mix colors and then you get complicated. Red/orange gets paired with blue/green... yellow/green gets paired with red/purple etc.
    If you said that we could just use two colors that are nicely contrasted then maybe I'd do a red & yellow combination but opposite sides of the color wheel does pair yellow with purple.

    Hi, Working from your stash is wonderful and I am all for stash busting, you just want to make sure that you use yardage and not scraps as this will not work 'scrappy' You need colors that will pop off of one another and are in no way related to one another. Does that make since?

    I love playing with the color wheel and yes, if you start staying from tried and true combinations, the combinations get really complicated, but in a lot of cases, wonderful things happen

    If you want to use tow colors that are nicely contrasted, go for it! We are looking for "POP and WOW" here.

    This is a pattern that many have already scene, but just a different color combination, wish I could tell you more, but it will all be clear next Sunday

    Have fun digging in the stash, I know I do and find things I had totaly forgotten were there LOL

    I generally get up at 5, so the coffee will be on at my house early. Why is it that during the week when you have to go to work and the alarm sounds at 5, you hit the snooze button, but on Saturday and Sunday, I am wide awake at 5 and ready to go.. makes no since to me what so ever!!!!!

    We are doing one that I have designed because the other one took too long to get her instructions listed. You will find the intro at this site. It is in both .doc and .pdf format along with the 1st clue. The next installment is going to be at 8am MST on Feb 5th.

    I am working to get the blocks together today and tomorrow and getting pictures and explanations on how to put a quilt together on point. This just proves that you think you know how to do something and then you try to explain it so everyone can understand... Thank Goodness for the delete key, it has gotten its workout today!

    I did the layout of my blocks and I can tell you, it has turned out nicer than I expected. Cant wait for the big reveal on next Sunday

    Wonderful! The instructions are calling for Black background and color dark and bold and color bright and bold. Just up my alley.

    Cool

    So I'm putting the rows together for the quilt.. I am working on the explanation on how to do it and the doorbell rings. My DH yells up the stairs and says "you expecting anyone?" I say "No, You?" He says "Nope" He opens the door and there stands my daughter! She is home from Cuba for 10 days!!! (She is the reason for my avatar) OMG!!! I hope the rest of the instructions make since, 'cus my head is in the clouds!!

    Headed for the stash to do my 'shopping'. I may be forced to hit a fabric shop before I am done. Sharon, have we a commitment from the S-I-L? I have the room reserved and the cook on alert.

    ***DESIGNER UPDATE***

    I am managing to finish the mystery. Tiffani and her girlfriend are out doing some running around, errons that she needed to do while she was here, so I am back at the cutting mat and sewing machine and pressing on (pun intended!) till she gets back home.

    I just cut the borders and find that I do have extra fabric. Fabric A will also be the binding, but I have 7/8 of a yard left, plenty for binding. Fabric B had 1/4 yard left and fabric C had 3/4 of a yard left. Hope that helps on your fabric planing if you haven't already cut, if you have.. Stash time

    Off to sew the borders, write the instructions and then computer goes off for the rest of the night
