Mystery Clues #1 & 2

Mystery Quilts for Military
Clue #1
Mystery Quilts for Military challenge began the first week of February, and wanting to shake things up a bit, I joined. Four fabrics were required for this mystery: I chose navy, antique beige, red batik, and a cream with small gold stars from my stash.

Clue #1 resulted in 112 half-square triangles.

Clue #2 resulted in 224 strip sets

I'm eager to see and work on the next clue which will be released on Friday.

  4. I've never done a mystery knit a long. IT will be fun to see this quilt progress. Someone is always thinking of something new to do in our world of handwork and it makes it more fun! The beige will give it that warm, from the past look!

  5. That looks like fun. I think a quilt-a-long would be less scary than a knit-along, although I would worry about whether my colors would work together.

  7. Shaking things up a bit - looks like you have given yourself a real challenge, but if that is what you needed, good on you. I look forward to seeing how the mystery develops.

  9. I'm already behind on my sock KAL, partly because we were gone and partly because I just changed the yarn as the first choice was way too splitty. It is challenging me because it is toe-up, not my favorite, and I know I'm a "big picture" person and like to know where I am headed. So, are you wondering whether I will finish? Me, too. LOL

  10. Good for you on keeping up with a mystery. I used to make a lot of mystery quilts. And, then, one day I realized the majority of my quilts were mystery quilts. I wasn't making quilts that I really wanted to. Today, I sometimes do a mystery quilt but more often I will pick the quilt I want to make. These days I mostly pick UFOs.
