Mystery Quilt

I don't usually do these kind of things but this mystery quilt really caught my eye. It is being done as a fund raiser for a boy who has had a brain tumor removed and now is going though extensive rehab to regain mobility, etc.

***The clues are sent by email every Friday starting next week for 6 weeks. I like that it doesn't drag on for months.
***It doesn't take a ton of fabric so there isn't a huge investment into something you may not like.
***The cost is $15. Would be great to have all of you join us. They are trying for 250 quilters and I think they are up to about 120 so far.

To sign up click on the My Shop icon which goes to Heather Spence's Etsy Shop. Find the pink flower that says Fall Mystery Quilt 2012 with $15 price. I used very convenient. I try to keep about $50 in my account for my misc. small purchases online.

Heather will email you....this is very well organized.

For experienced quilters (that is not a beginner) you need
  • 1 1./2 yard Dark
  • 2/3 yard Medium
  • 2 1/8 yard Light
Backing -- 4 yards
Binding -- 1/2 yard

I will get backing and binding after quilt is done to know what I want. Heather, the designer and organizer is using red, pink and white.
Amount of fabric needed for beginners is a little different and I didn't write that down but you will get that from Heather in an email.

These are my fabrics:

We have been told that the quilt will have a modern feel and I have been admiring all the quilts done with lots of white so this will be my first using solid colors. The white is a Moda muslin and the turquoise and green are mottled. I would have done solids but the shop didn't have the colors I wanted. I am very anxious to start cutting into these luscious colors.
Let me know if you decide to join the group.
