    Hi everyone,

    I was wondering if anyone else was doing this Free Mystery Quilt from Claudia's Quilt Shoppe website..

    http://www.claudiasquiltshoppe.com/freebom.htm

    The beauty about this one is that it's 1 whole row per month.....

    I thought I'd do it - and it's a blast.....January was snowflakes, February - hearts......it's going to be a year of monthly themes I think- and the the blocks are small and work great with smaller pieces and could end up being a great scrappy quilt because of the different colors (except for a background fabric)

    I thought it would be fun to see if anyone else was doing this....and if so perhaps we can all follow along and encourage each other...

    I just finished my February row this evening - and joined it to my snowflakes from January - here are a couple of pictures of what I have so far...

    Hope there will perhaps be some more of you who will join in - and the beauty is that it's free!

    256 pieces in the this first portion - I can't wait to see how many pieces will be in the whole quilt top at the end of the year!

    I just printed these off, although it'll be a bit before I can start it. They look like they go together fairly easy & quickly! Thanks for sharing it! :)

    Hi MollieSue..
    They are great........they do make up easily...the pieces are small but a lot of fun.. I'm really enjoying it - and the fun thing is that you get a whole row of your quilt per month - it should be a fun year.....and it will be even more fun with other people doing it and sharing the ride....
    Glad that you are on board......

    Ok, so if we do this, will someone remind us each month to check the website for those of us who are 'date' challenged? It looks fun. Doing all these projects will keep me quilting just about every day. That's good!

    This is the kind of project that I love. I have not seen a quilt in this row format, and I am definitely doing it! Thank you for sharing this link and your pictures. I LOVE IT!

    Glad that you're joining in - we are going to have a fun group doing this one - and we can all encourage each other along.. :-)...It's rare that we see this type of ROW Mystery Quilt but that's what intrigued me - I'm so glad that I found it on Claudia's Quilt Shoppe site......

    THe blocks are small and would adapt really, really well to smaller projects - especially doll quilts.....

    SaraSewing,
    You'll catch up fast..the snowflakes row is a bit more time consuming - and the pieces are smaller - but the Heart row goes very fast - I did it this evening in very little time.....so now we have til March 1st before they post the next row.....February,s was posted yesterday so I'm assuming they will post the first of each Month..now there's lots of time before the next row is revealed....March....perhaps they will be Shamrocks.... :-)

    The snowflakes are very teeny tiny.....and so many seams to keep control of :) but they are darned cute when you're done....It'll be fun to see everyone's when they are done and see how the "same" quilts turn out so different!

    How cute. I think I'll try it. I'm in. Try to remind us when a new pattern is posted. I think I may need some background fabric but I know I have the rest. I only have four others going now, but i like a break and this looks like it'll be fun. I'll try to catch up next week. I have company right now in my sewing room.

    ok, I am going to be one step...slightly in..I am going to print out all the months that are posted, and continue to print them for each month until I can get back to my sewing. Had shoulder surgery on the 11th of Jan, and STILL no use of my left arm and I am LEFT handed...but this is cool, I have done other mystery quilts so will love this one. Count me in as an "innocent bystander"..lol Joanie

    This is super....I will make sure that we don't forget that the new pattern is posted each month, etc...
    It will be a lot of fun to see who we all put together our own mystery quilt...and I think that Claudia's Quilt Shoppe did a great job in orgainzing this one - glad that we all have found it.....
    Have a great day everyone!

    Joanie,
    Hope that you get better soon and back to your sewing......I'm left handed as well.....I remember breaking my left arm in 8th grade...
    Wishing you a quick recovery!
