A New Year and a New Project!

I signed up for the "Stars for My Friends" six part mystery at the London Friendship Quilters' guild. The first part was handed out in October. I did not get anything sewn as I had not picked out my fabrics by the time the November instructions came out. So, I was then two months behind!  I found a flannel fat quarter bundle in my sewing room and decided to use it for this project in November. By then, I was in the thick of getting ready for Christmas, so I still did not get any sewing done! 

After reading the instructions over, I realized I needed some light coloured fabric to go with my fat quarters. I finally found something appropriate in late November.

Today, I finally got my fabrics and now 3 months worth of instructions out and got started on this mystery!  I am not allowed to show any pictures of my project so that others do not see the mystery but here is a sneak peek of part of the centre block.

This mystery quilt was designed by Glenda at Stone Cottage Crafts in Craighurst, Ontario. She spoke at our guild meeting in September and many of our members signed up for the mystery!  I am looking forward to seeing everyone's versions of this quilt. The last clue will be distributed at our April meeting and then everyone is to have their tops done by a certain time for the big reveal.

I saw another online project today that I am considering as well...

As far as my sewing room goes, I ironed all of my recent fabric purchases today (they have all been washed already.) and hope to spend some time putting them all away and doing a major clean up of the sewing room tomorrow.


  1. This is going to be lovely and cosy! Look forward to see it develop.

  2. The colors are so warm, it will be a great finish I'm sure.

  3. Can't wait to see the big reveal! You know how I love mysteries!

  4. Thanks for your comment on my book on my blog. :-) I am so glad that you enjoyed it. I am currently working on the second one. A little bit of quilting time each day is my reward for finishing my pages of writing. cheers, Riel
