    I think this is the best part of being the designer, seeing all of the color combinations that everyone chooses and how everyone sees something different in your instructions. This should be fun, I want everyone to post pictures of your progress as we sew tomorrow Now I just cant wait!!

    I have updated the website https://sites.google.com/site/rustysquilts/ rearranged and added a page for notes and comments. I have also updated Clue #1 - Time to Strip!. Nothing drastic, just an adjustment to a picture and the wording on a paragraph or two, no changes to the sewing or cutting. Just me tweaking the clue.

    I will also be uploading the EQ7 .PJ7 file at the end of the day, so those of you with EQ7, can have the file to refer to as well. I have striped it down to the bare bones so the size of the file will be around 2.75mb.

    Countdown is to 21 hours!!!!

    All cut and ready to go tomorrow morning. I hope I can make quick progress because I have to go to a Birthday party tomorrow afternoon.
    I was not happy with my original solid black fabric so I shopped my stash. I came up with one of my favorites, Timeless Treasures black with small red dots. Now I am happy.

    6 Clues and I have already given you the 1st one, so 5 to go. Starting at 8 MST, you will be done by 1pm MST or
    3 EST. I will leave the clues up for 48 hours so you have time to get them. They will be for sale after I compile all of the info and make the needed corrections.

    ** DESIGNER UPDATE **

    Good evening everyone! Hope you have all of your pieces cut, fabric sample card done so you don't forget what you choose for fabric a, b & c. Gather a small stack of papers or post-it notes so you can label each block as you make them. Put a sharp blade in your rotary cutter, wind an extra bobbin, put a fresh needle of your choice in your machine, put water in the iron, paper in the printer, staples in the stapler and the coffee ready for the morning.

    Because this is an untested pattern (although the one I did was fine) Please take some notes for me as we sew.
    1. I need to know at what level you believe your skills are at and if this pattern was to advanced, to simple or just right.
    2. Tell me if you think it took too much fabric or just the right amount.
    2a. Was the quilt too big or not big enough?
    3. Was I too specific on the fabrics to get or do I need to be a little less specific now that you see the quilt together.
    4. Were the instructions clear or did you have difficulty understanding the concept for a step?
    5. Did the pictures and drawings help or were there too many or not enough?
    6. Were there any typos?
    7. Was the size of the font too large? What size do you think would be better?
    8. Were the pictures large enough or too large?
    9. Was the website easy to navigate?
    10. Were the files easy to download, save and open?
    11. Would you like to do more mystery quilts in the future?

    I ask that you please PM me with the answers, I don't want to clutter up the list.

    Would you like to be a tester for my next mystery quilt? (I don't pay and you have to provide your own fabric, but you get an original quilt design ) I will be looking for about 5 to 7 testers at all skill levels.

    In the mean time, enjoy the mystery and let the Prestidigitation begin!

    fabriclovr,
    I am following along but can't play today. I hurt my shoulder yesterday. Everything was cut and ready to go. I am saving all the instructions and I just looked at the clue. It is going to be a wow. I love it already.
    Happy Quilting.
