Mystery Quilt WIP

This has been a crazy week.  Thank goodness it was a holiday week so I had lots of free time.  I have cut over 3000 pieces of fabric and assembled hundreds of blocks but I’m still way behind.

I finished all the nine patches for part one:

Part 4 finished:

Part 6 added a triangle to all the pieces completed in part 4:

So I’ve completed parts 1, 4 and 6 and I’ve got the pieces of fabric cut for parts 2, 3 and 5. I thought I was doing really well until Bonnie released parts 7, 8 and 9 in the last 3 days instead of the normal one part a week.  We now know what the finished quilt will look like.  I really like it and it is motivating me to keep going.  It is never too late to join us.  Remember to download all the instructions before they are removed from Bonnie’s website.    #quiltville #quiltvillemystery #onringolakequilt

Mystery Quilt

I was surfing on the weekend and stumbled upon Quiltville On Ringo Lake Mystery quilt-a-long.  I’ve never done a mystery quilt because I didn’t want to invest the time and money making a quilt only to discover that I didn’t like the finished product.  I went back and looked at some of the previous mystery quilts on Quiltville and they were all lovely.  This year’s mystery quilt is designed to be made from scraps….and like any fabric-a-holic I have more than my share of fabric.  To make a long story short, I decided to join in.  The only problem is that it started 5 weeks ago so I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.  Week one was a nine patch….actually a lot of nine patches.  I’ve got the first four made…..many, many, many more to go.

I’m linking up to Mystery TUESDAY Link-Up, Part 5
