Pagzz, I love the wonderful small prints in your strips; they really stand out. JennR8R and Macybaby, your strings have wonderful arrangements of white/cream strips. Wow!

Thanks joe'smom. I'll use the dimensions given as "unfinished" and not sure if I will do wonky or straight seams. Thanks again.

Kalama, green and/or brown would go well with your bathroom colors. I have some pretty, modern fabric with those colors.

Are you all ready for a reveal in two days? That’s when she usually reveals... on New Year’s Day.

The Chinese New Year is on 05 February--that would be fun. I never am ready for the mystery to end.

Three Kings Day is 06 January--the reveal could be an Epiphany for us all!

I'm so curious about this quilt design, I'm ready for a New Year's reveal.

I decided for my yardage quilt that it is best to wait on clue 6. I think the strip set option might be the best choice there, or just a plain rectangle. I almost have the clue 6 sets sewn for the scrappy version. Everyone's units look wonderful!

Drat. I miscalculated, thinking I would get 4 sub-cuts per sheet for the neutral units, but only got 3. So it's back to the drawing board for 3 more sheets of the neutral units.

Joe’s mom: I was short 1. Frustrating but I had some leftover bricks and quickly made up the last 2” wide one. I used some longer strips sewn together for some of the 2” wide units because I got tired of putting small bricks together. Lol! I am caught up but need to press/twirl some of the first 2 clues.

I was going to do the Merry Mayhem Mystery but decided I have too many sewing projects going already. I will save the clues as I really do like her Mystery quilts.

Time to put away the scraps I sorted last night from 2 gallon bags. They were donated scraps and many of them are 2.5” wide by varying lengths.

I ended up cutting more strips three times before I got enough. First round I ended up with enough of the narrower ones and about half of the wider ones. So I cut more strips and was still one short!
