Wait! Wait! … don’t tell me!

(sorry…just love that NPR show and had to say it!)

I’m quilting again! Imagine that! 🙂

Last night I finished the binding on the Disappearing Recess quilt…using American Jane’s Recess fabric and the Disappearing Nine Patch block. It’s been washed and ready to go into my etsy store.




And then I started the Ben Franklin Mystery Quilt that is due by March 31st. (from the Sparks, Nevada store in the Greenbrae Shopping Center)

The idea is to make a small quilt or wall hanging by incorporating the fabrics in the mystery bag.

First, choose your color scheme and purchase the ‘Mystery Quilt’ bag of fabric. (each bag had either a pink or blue ribbon…I picked a blue one)

Second, choose your pattern and assemble your quilt using the fabrics in your bag and adding any additional fabrics of your choice.

Third, return your finished ‘Mystery Quilt’ by the deadline for judging.

Finished quilt size 40″x40″.

Each bag contains 1/2 yard of print and 4 1/4 yards of coordinating fabrics. Judging will be by the customers from April 1st – April 18th. Prizes to include fabric and gift certificates.

Here is a picture of the fabrics in my bag ~

A picture of the fabrics I added from my stash at home ~

And a picture of the blocks I made to incorporate into my quilt ~ Pinwheels and Crazy Nine Patches.

Wish me luck! 🙂

  3. Aw I just love your quilt on top! So cute! I love the red binding against the blue. (And I love Wait, Wait Don’t Tell Me and I even had a friend on that show who got his voice on her answering machine)
