    My good friend and I had a quilting party last Saturday. We both worked on Debbie Caffrey's mystery that came out in the latest issue of Quiltmaker's magazine (May/June issue). The next steps will be in the next two issues. We love doing Debbie's mysteries. We both used to live in Alaska and did several of Debbie's mysteries in class there. These are the fabrics I chose to use in mine.
    The Easter Basket wallhanging I have had done for several years but still haven't quilted it. I don't do FM quilting too well so am trying to wait until I feel more comfortable with stippling. I would like to stipple in the white background then maybe cross-hatching on the baskets and just kind fo out-line the eggs in the baskets and the borders. What do you think of that....would it look ok or is there a better way? I am open for suggestions.

    WOW! They are so pretty! Stippling in the baskets would look nice or you could do a cross-hatching. The eggs look great the way they are!

    Oh, wow, I posted a topic a few days ago asking if anyone was making the mystery quilt, I'm so happy to see that you are, love your fabric choices. I made a table runner a while back using the same easter egg fabric too! It's on my dining table right now. Yours is so pretty with the basket blocks, mine has bright churn dash blocks.

    I like the looks of the first blocks in this mystery. Waiting to see some more, before I decide if I want to do the quilt or not, lol. Nice fabrics, good choices, & love your Easter Baskets too!

    Nancy, I have done alot of Debbie Caffey's mysteries and haven't come across one yet that didn't turn out good. I could almost gaurantee this will be a neat quilt. It is so much more fun to do and find out the surprise. It doesn't use alot of fabric. If your stash is like mine you can probably get all the fabrics out of your stash. I am almost certain the last fabric listed is for binding.

    Do you have a pattern for the baskets? I have been looking for one for months and these look just right.
