I have looked on these the last few years. Well, this year I'm joining in.... It all began on October 27 with the fabrics and quantities.
Look at these beautiful colours. I have enough of these in my stash.

Then on November 25th for the PART 1.
Here is my progress.
Scraps of neutrals cut into strips ready for sewing together.

I had to add some florals and of course sewing words.
can you see the kitchen fabric, cute spots and text fabrics.

All my scraps and strips are sewn and ironed ready for cutting again

My strips are all cross cut ready to be made into 4 patches. 

All the 4 patches are sewn ready to iron.  
All my 4 patches are sewn and ironed with the seams turned.
I'm ready for the next step 

the page with all the info
Now on Monday there is the first linky party. When I was preparing this post there were over 100 link ups. Go for a look and some fun reads it, fabrics and ideas...


  1. And look at you with a binder for all your clues! How organized! Love your collection of neutrals - your 4patches look great! Can't wait to see the rest of your fabrics.

  2. A magnificent start, sew organised.

  3. I "watched" a few mysteries before I jumped in. But once you do one, you will be hooked! Your 4-patches look good.

  4. Like you, I follow Bonnie Hunter and read her mystery clues each week but I have never done one. They are such big projects! You are the first person I "know" to take part so I will be following you and cheering you on!

  5. This is my first mystery quilt too. Your neutrals look great!

  6. You certainly have a great production line going. Great scraps too!

  7. You have done heaps Jo, your four patches look wonderful. Off to have a look.

  8. Gosh what a lot of work Jo and very pretty neutrals.


Thanks for taking the time to have a read and leave me a message.
Have a great day
