New Project

Hello! My name is Kathy and I'm a mystery quiltaholic!

I was minding my own business last week, and then suddenly I started a new mystery quilt called "Oh say can you sew". 

I found this new adventure on the Primitive Gatherings blog and thought it would be a great way to use up my reproduction fabrics. I spread out my fabrics for this "red, white and blue" mystery quilt, and decided I would make a totally scrappy version instead. The plan of the moment is to substitute black instead of blues, and "everything else" for the reds. 

The first step started innocently enough with a few little 3" patches. Who could resist that?!?! Certainly not me as we all know! I started cutting up the smallest neutrals in 1.5" squares and strips. That took a long time but it made me happy to bring order to the scrap bag.

Here's the first step finished - a big pile of 9 patches cute as a button!

Clues are released the first Monday each month (for a total of 7 steps) and are free only for that month. The April clue is already posted and will be available for 2 more weeks, so get it while you can!

LOL--What a surprise to see you start another mystery (NOT).
Lisa loves designing quilts with little parts, so you should be right at home here!

Cute blocks, a mystery and a surprise at the end. Looking forward to see the reveal of your quilt.
