Mary Mayhem did a mystery quilt on Planet Patchwork yesterday. It was too hot to be outside, so I hunkerd down in the basement and stitched away. This was the second mystery quilt I have done and WOW WOW is all I can say. Mary did such a wonderful job. Of course the fact that the quilt ended up being one of my very favorite blocks and the fact that I used "purple" my favorite color, had nothing to do with it at all, I am sure! :-)
There were some technology issues with the live chat, so we had to use Twitter. It was new territory for me, but it worked like a charm, and we were able to get answers to some cutting instructions early on. After that it was smooth sailing and the quilt top went together with ease.
I am delighted to have a finished top and the ability to "Tweet" now. Geezh, does life get any better? :-) I have to highly recommend future Mystery quilt's with Mary. She breaks them down into easy pieces and makes them so much fun with the chatting. After looking thru some of her earlier mystery projects, I see I have missed out on quite a few good things. It's worth a trip to Planet Patchwork's website and signing up for newsletters!
It's gonna be a scorcher here today. Hope you all find a way to keep cool.
