There are over 2000 people who have joined a facebook page set up just for this mystery quilt and I'm sure there are many more who are planning to do the quilt.
I have done 5 past mysteries and they have all turned out fantastic so here I go again. I never keep up with the clues but will do a portion of each one as they are released and then take it from there. It usually takes me from 4 months to a year to finish- I just finished last years Easy Street a few weeks ago(pictures in Oct 26 post). But it is not a race so I just work at my own pace.
This year will be a little slower as we will be away most of December so I will get the first clue this Friday and then miss the next 3 probably arriving home the day after clue 5.
I had chosen fabrics early on and here is the picture of my first choice:
I trimmed a few pieces down so they would be easier to handle and then after looking at what some other people had picked I decided to try brown instead of blue. I think I like this better but will see once the clues get started. That will be the advantage to being away- I will see where colors are used up to clue 5 before I am really committed to my colors.
Anyway the countdown is on; Clue 1 to be released early Fri morning. I work Friday so it will be evening before I start to play but should be fun.
