    Okay here is some of my pictures for Part 1 - after the pictures were taken I started cutting and sewing more. Got about 30 hour glass units done so far. Also included pictures of all my black fabrics and like half of my neutrals. Enjoy

    Jan in FL-thanks for the extra info from Bonnie answering questions. Helps so much to know this info about color placement. Now to decide which colors I want where?!?!?! It is a bit harder since the quilt is a mystery.
    Happy thanksgiving all!!

    Mackandblues, you have beautiful fabrics! All my blacks are colorful, so I'm thinking it probably wont stand out as much as it should, but in a scrappy quilt I guess it won't matter too terrible much. This is definitely a good way for me to find out if I like scrappy quilts, huh since I've never done either a mystery or a scrappy lol.

I can definitely wait patiently for part 2 now. Picture also gives a sneak peek at my colors.

    Beautiful colors and your triangles look so perfect!

    OK, I am late getting started but have begun my QSTs and they are looking pretty good. I have attached a pic of my progress, I work in batches so they are at all stages in the process. This is about half of what I need to make. My colors for these are golds and a constant neutral cream color. My other colors will be green for the string blocks and red for the accent. Hope it doesn't end up looking too Christmas-y.

    Here are samples of my Part 1 and Part 2. I do not like the 2" string size on some of these, and will not use that large a size in the ones I am still working on. I think with the little 3 1/2" blocks, the smaller size strings are better.

    Pretty! My strips came from my 2 1/2 inch strip bins. Took the scissors to them because they were just way too big. I think the biggest now is 1 1/2inch

    I will probably be finished QSTing tomorrow. I won't be starting the the strings until Monday evening after work. Since I am so new to quilting and this is my first attempt at QSTs, I am amazed that they are coming out the right size! However, I did it the long way...cut 3 1/4", sew two seams diagonally, cut, sew two seams diagonally, cut. I also mis calculated and cut and sewed the HSTs enough for two of these quilts! But I will press on! (also cut my finger...but I can laugh at myself!)

    Whatever works! So far I have 2! LOL 2 that are finished, there is a stack of them that the DH still needs to finish ironing so that I can get them done. I know I'm not even close to being done.

    Here are the first 6 of Part #2 They are actually much yellower than the picture shows

    Oh looking good CoyoteMagic! I know photos don't seem to do the fabric justice! Maybe should have scanned them rather than taken a photo - sometimes that works better.

    I found out about this mystery quilt at an adult ed class I am taking. We are making a Bonnie Hunter quilt called Jamestown landing. Some of the members of the class are doing the mystery as well, so dd and I are trying to pull together some stash. We are way behind, since the 2nd instructions are already posted. We are going to do the black, red and blue. Bonnie's quilts are so time consuming with such little pieces.

    I have the step two done - it was a boring weekend around here. I choose burgendy and magenta. I found it was best to peal the paper off first, press them, then trim them to size so that they are are more accurate. My next step will be marine greens because I have a bunch of them that I don't really know what else to do with them.
