road trip tomorrow, got to go into town and buy a new iron, my trusty old girl just gave up the ghost.... :=(

guess it will be a evening in front of the TV instead of  in front of the sewing machine.  Oh well, probably needed an evening off....LOL

I am so glad that I didn't cut my little strips, I have enough of the fabric I choose to use 3 long strips.  Thanks for the heads up!!

congrats on your party Pat.  Part 3 is taking me forever to do.  I think I am going to skip to Part 4 and then back to 3.  

Blocks are looking great ladies.  Thanks for posting pictures.

Week three!  I've finally caught up!

Congratulations Patricia- what a milestone and sounds like you have a supportive family. Glad you were able to enjoy time together! I still need to finish part 2 and part 3 , both part done. Then on to part 4. Happy sewing everyone!

My 60th birthday party went off without a hitch and the house is almost back to normal.  Just have to claim back my sewing room.  Sunday night we had 14 adults and 9 kids sleeping over but now the house is empty just my husband and myself.  Once I have my space back i will be able to catch up.  Seeing Part 4 I am keen to finish Part 2 and start and finish part 3.  Will post photos once I have done that. Good sewing to all.  The variety is amazing.  Who would have thought Bill and Weeks when you posted this Mystery Quilt there would be such a response!

Makes perfect sense Weeks...haven't started doing mine yet hopefully tomorrow.

Lyn and all who asked about the single strip: we are acutely aware that A) the country is in a recession and B) that many people want to use fabric from their stashes so we didn't want to ask you to buy 1 1/2 yds of fabric to use only 1" of width. As a result we wrote the directions so you could change colors or piece together fabric. It's absolutely fine to use one long strip and that's what we did in the original, but I wanted to explain why we wrote it as we did. Either way is fine. If you're going to do one long strip, sew one side, press it, then with a marking pen or chalk draw a line from the top of the circle straight across the small strip. That way when you're pinning the other side to it, you'll be able to align the tops of the circles. Does that make sense?

Chris Combs love the color choices. I am finishing up the circles. Now I can just go into part 4.

Comment by Lyn Ennis on October 2, 2012 at 6:07pm

I was thinking the same thing! No seams to match!!! I haven't cut mine yet either and the only difference it looks like it would make is no seam lines???? What do you think, Bill & Weeks?

Comment by Cynthia Harrell Felts on October 2, 2012 at 6:07pm

@ Sammie Messick--I don't think the exact measurement matters too much. Most of my pieces ended up nearer to 4 or 5 inches, and I figured I might have to trim later. I didn't cut any strips narrower than 1" because that finishes to just 1/2" anyway.
