Well, I gave into temptation. My favorite quilting web site is Quiltville.com Bonnie Hunter is just tops in my book as far as quilt designs are concerned. She has inspired me in many ways. She has recently posted a mystery quilt called Carolina Crossroads and invited other quilters to sew along. For my non-quilting friends a mystery quilt is when directions for making a certain quilt is just given a piece at a time, you don't know what the quilt will end up looking like until the very last clue is given. I have never made a mystery quilt before. I read many a post on other quilting blogs about this project. I kept telling myself, "Self, you have enough projects going right now! You don't need to start another one until you finish some UFO's !" My self talk worked for quite a while - but yesterday I gave in. I may have started late, but I have started. I have cut all of the necessary fabrics. From what I understand there are 6 clues in all. The sixth clue was posted yesterday. I have printed off clues one through five. I have asked hubby to print off the last one and put it in an envelope. I am leaving on Monday for a quilting-get-away and my plan is to work on this quilt. I will not look at the final clue until all of the units are made. My fingers are crossed that I won't stumble across a fellow quilter's blog that has posted their finished quilt top before I can finish mine. I don't know if that is possible, but I will try!
