Just an Illusion: Step #1

When I started putting this mystery quilt together I started with fabrics on hand to test out the “size” I wanted. When I was satisfied with that I decided it was time to cut into my stash of fabrics from Down Under. And wouldn’t you know I was short approximately .5m  of background fabric! That of course necessitated an online purchase…it was cheaper than flying so I bought 2 more metres. :)  http://www.kiwiquilts.co.nz/

I’ll post every step in a pdf file so you can print it off easily. I’ve also found more music clues to keep you in the mood to keep sleuthing. It’s been a couple of weeks since I started “Building a Mystery,” (sorry) and it is now time for Step #1.  PDF removed Jan 31/13.  And here is this weeks music selection, enjoy: She’s a Mystery by Bon Jovi.

Myles, the black velvet wearing lamb to the left was a real mystery to make! His friend is Allanah. :) Pattern by Melly & Me. http://mellyandme.typepad.com/

Next clue will be posted on Friday, October 26th. Until then…

Happy Quilting…Valerie Raye

    Myles has been visiting Maybelline for the last few months! How does Alanah feel about that?
