Part 2 is now available. I managed to get all my fabrics cut today including my “I Spy” rectangles. I will sew the A & B strips together first thing tomorrow morning and be ready to go for New Year’s Day. I look forward to seeing everyone’s fabric choices.

jmoore, I remember what a beautiful fabric line you used last year!

I could not get happy with my fabric choices, so I started from scratch. I also got my cutting done yesterday. It does seem to be an easy one this year, doesn't it?

Great selection of fun fabrics Joe’smom. I think you are right that it does seem to be a simpler pattern this year. It’s always a fun project to ring in the New Year.

I have only made one of her mysteries in the past but decided to participate this time, as I have many small chunks of novelty fabrics…..I will do the lap size, working at cutting the novelty fabrics this afternoon.

Hello, all!

I've been on a quilting hiatus for a while for various reasons, but the Merry Mayhem Mystery is acting as my motivation to shake myself off and get back into it. I've done many of her mysteries in the past, sometimes managing to get 'er done in a single day of marathon quilting, other times at least getting a pretty good start and finishing later. I do have a 10k to run on New Year's Morning, so I imagine that this year I'll be finishing a bit later!

I'm using today to pick my fabrics and slice 'em up. I do love me a scrappy quilt, and one of my "Scrap Saving System" Drawers is actually 4 1\2" strips, so I might can pull from those as well as cannibalize the smaller, odder pieces of fabric from my stash.

Quilting mode...re-engaged.

Happiness...increasing!

So glad that you are using this to re-motivate! I think this one will turn out really great. Can't wait to see your fabrics too! Hugs!

Lovely array of C fabrics. I'm trying to stay up with the Cuts and Bolts mystery today so I can start with a clean slate tomorrow.
