Mystery Quilt


Posted on October 11th, by Amy in work in progress. 18 comments

Hi there!  I hope you had a great weekend.  I did!

Friday night I participated in a Mystery Quilt class, we had a cutting list and a 10pm start time.  Armed with Fandango, snacks and a frappuccino, we got started and sewed all night long!  I shared a table with Natalia, and had a lot of fun.

This is my quilt in pieces…I had to head for home around 4 (yes 4 am!)  I couldn’t keep going.  But it’s all ready to be put into a top – which I plan to do this week!  Look for a post soon.

You can see the complete top on Natalia’s blog too!

Blogger’s Quilt Festival is just 3 weeks away…I’m hoping to have a button for you really soon.

Amy

    I have never done an organized all-nighter but have had my fair share late night quilt nights. It’s amazing how different your quilt top (based on your blocks) and Natalia’s are. Very cool!

    Between yours and Natalia’s posts, I can tell that was one fun event. I don’t know if I have the fortitude to stay awake. Did you guy get kinda punchy at the end of the session? I would have been crazy silly…LOL

    I literally finished my very first frappucino just minutes ago. A friend gave me one (vanilla). Those can be addicting!

    OMG! If I didn’t start sewing until 10 at night, no telling what I would end up with. No matter how many of you there were, nobody would have been able to keep me awake. Believe me when I say, that the noisier a room is, the easier it is for me to sleep! (I’ve been known to fall asleep at Nascar races – lol! TMI!!)
