    Oh my!!! Such a beautiful quilt and pattern! I didn't find it until the day was almost over, but I am going to print it out and will be doing it soon! Please let me know about the Labor day quilt! I am definitely in! Will probably be at our sons in Rochester, NY so it will be perfect...DH and DS will keep each other occupied and I can quilt, quilt, quilt!!!

    Tell mom, the pattern is not right the way she has it, but if she likes it that way, its her quilt and her design choice

    Tell dad, humm, that's an idea and look at your PM's

    loved the different pics. I had to stop in the middle of sewing mine together (step 6?)to go to Sunday dinner at mom's, so should finish in the morning. I would be happy to test a new quilt if you still need testers. I think a little longer time on the first step would be nice, but made it up in later steps. (hmmm...could have been the kids calling mom at first until I threatened bodily harm...lol)

    I finally figured out why I did not have the instructions for the triangles. I printed them out on both sides to save paper and did not put them in the plastic sleeves incorrectly. Then I had the blocks laid out on the bed and had to clear them because DH will be going to bed right after the game. No way will I be able to make any more progress tonight. I will finish tomorrow for sure. I have so much fun doing this mystery quilt and love the design.

    I love all the tops that I have seen.

    If you are writing a new mystery during the summer I will have time to test the pattern.

    Monday morning update. After taking the laid out blocks off the bed last night, I decided to go back, re-label all of them and start over again with the layout. I had sewn row 1 together but decided to deconstruct it also. After breakfast I will bring in my design wall from the garage (a long story) which I should have done yesterday. I hope to get the piecing done along with the borders today. I love making mitered borders and use them on most of my quilts. Will keep you posted on my progress.

    Here is the top on the design wall. I put number labels on each piece to be correct with the block placement. And I fixed the 6b and 7b block placement that Susan mentioned.

    I was reading the posts again and trying to find where I left off and found yours again. Made me laugh! At work, the lady that does all of the field trip planning (I drive a school bus) was pulling her hair out because she could not find the paperwork for a set of trips that was coming up. She swore that she printed them and couldn't find them so she reprinted them. She handed me mine and for some reason, I put it down with the back side up and guess what was there? The missing paperwork! LOL For some reason, the printer printed on both sides and she didn't think to turn over the paper. Guess it happens to the best of us from time to time. Glad you were able to find the instructions and continue on

    I Love IT!! Now that you see it put together, its easy to understand why I stressed the numbers on the blocks. Good job!

    The blocks are not sewn together yet so I do not know. It could be the perspective of the camera angle. The rough measurement unsewn and pinned to the design wall is 37" x 48".
