TST #8 - A Mystery


It’s a Mystery to Me  Completed January 2007

In August, 1993 Kim from Wisconsin decided to organize and coordinate a Mystery Quilt on CIS.  I followed along each month using a combination of fabric I purchased (black and white) and charm squares I had collected from the various members on the CIS Quilting Forum.  It sat for a long time as a completed top until one day I decided it was time to finish some of the various UFOs I had amassed.  Connie a friend from my quilt guild had just recently acquired a long-arm so she machine quilted it for me.  I have kept the instructions, should I ever want to make another quilt similar to this one.

I like this one Brigitte - B&W are always a good starting point in my mind, and with the scrappy it makes for a lot of movement. It is an interesting pattern that I've not seen before.

I just love your quilt. I don't suppose you'd consider sharing the instructions?
