I don't know if you have heard about the Modern Mystery Quilt... check it out... should be fun... I am just starting to get into the Modern Quilting, thought that I would give this a try also... boy I really like to keep busy... lol...
Attention all mystery quilt fans! It’s fresh, it’s fun, it’s free,
and you will only find it at www.QuiltViews.com, the official blog site for the American Quilter’s
Society and American Quilter magazine. Weeks Ringle and Bill Kerr,
authors of Quilts Made Modern and pioneers in the modern quilt
movement, have designed a modern mystery quilt just for us, to be revealed in
six weekly installments beginning September 12, 2012.
Not familiar with the mystery quilt concept?
Each week, a new set of “clues” (cutting, sewing, and assembly instructions)
will be posted on this blog site. The first installment includes yardage
requirements, a few tips on choosing fabrics, and some initial cutting
instructions, but you will not see a photo of the completed quilt until the last
installment. (Yes, you could “cheat” and wait until the last installment to
start, but then you’d miss all the fun and suspense of the project.)
And we have a great way for you to exchange
ideas, techniques, work-in-progress photos, and encouragement with other
quilters participating in this mystery quilt project. Visit www.MyQuiltPlace.com, a free and fun social media forum for quilters, and
join our group: http://myquiltplace.com/group/modern-mystery-quilt. If you’re not yet a member of My Quilt Place, simply
sign up to create your own home page, then take time to explore this great site
and meet other quilters around the world.
Ok that's enough posting for today... I will be back tomorrow and show you some other projects that I am working on.... Have a great day...
I have a couple things that I will be doing and hopefully posting along the way...
I went to my Modern Quilt Guild meeting and they was talking about a "Row Along" I thought that would be interesting, so I checked it out... Bee
in my Bonnet Row Along?hosting this row along it will last until Spring. Check it out and have some fun using up your scraps.
Here is my fabric that I will be using... oh yea this is a scrappy...
Know that my daughters wedding is behind me, I'll show you the quilt that I made for her... I wanted to do the double wedding ring, but they changed the date from Jan 2013 to Sept 2012, so maybe for a Annv. gift.. Around the boarders is the 1st Corinthians ---- Love is kind, is patient etc... Then on the bottom of the quilt I had each one of them give me 10 words on how they felt about each other and used them.. I also used the words on there ring barrier pillow.
In the corners I used part of my wedding dress and also on the back of the pillows.
Here is a picture of the ring barrier pillow. This is also made out of my wedding dress used the lace from my train...
Here is a picture of the beautiful bride and my son in law.
