Quilts and Other Stuff from Frances

It’s time for a good mystery!!!

I am excited that it is once again time for the annual mystery quilt sponsored by Meadow Mist Designs. This year’s offering is the Macaron Mystery.

The teaser photo appealed to my senses…..

…and I was excited to start pulling fabrics!!!

When I started last year’s “Morewood Mystery”, I was trying to conserve fabric (for some strange reason) and chose to use only scraps for the quilt. I was pleased with the results…..

….but I did make my life a LOT harder!!!

This year, I have made a pact with myself that I am going to USE the fabric on my shelf and not try to hang on to it and I thoroughly enjoyed selecting the fabrics for this new creation…..

The blotchy print is one that I bought on our trip to Austin, Tx in 2020 and that is bringing an enjoyable memory to the project!!

It took about 2 hours to do the cutting…..

There were a lot of 5/8″ and 7/8″ measurements which I normally don’t work with so it will be interesting to see what I will learn during the project.

That is one reason that I enjoy mysteries and challenges….I ALWAYS learn something!!!

So, it is now boxed up and waiting for the next clue….

…..only 3 weeks to wait!!
