Judy at Patchwork Times is hosting a mystery quilt next year (first step comes out 1/1/14). You can check out the full details here. I really want to participate. And this is how one gets UFOs… If you haven’t already experienced it – I introduce you to Quilter’s ADD!
As if I wasn’t already participating in 4 BOMs right now. Of which I’m barely able to get 2 of them completed each month. 1 of them hasn’t officially started since I haven’t received the kit yet but I am receiving 3 and only getting 2 done. And I’m working on Bonnie Hunter’s Mystery Quilt Celtic Solstice. And I’ve got my current WIPs… finish quilting Easy Street, piecing Missing Ivy… my hand projects – the hand quilt and Raining Cats and Dogs! I’ve got a ton to do. But, in the back of my head I think I can swing Tell It to the Stars too. It’s a year long mystery quilt so I’ll have a whole month to complete each step. I love Love LOVE Judy’s stuff so I’m sure I’ll love this too. (sigh!) I haven’t decided one way or the other. The only thing holding me back right now is that I just do not have time to gather the fabric. I really want to purchase the fabric kit just because the colors are gorgeous and it’s SO EASY to do that. But its $200. And I’m not ready to commit the money to it. To make things worse, if I want the kit I have to decide by 12/10. Otherwise I may not receive the fabric in time for the 1st step. And if I do not get the fabric by the first step – that means I’ll be behind right from the starting gate… not my favorite place to be.
Are you participating in this mystery quilt? Are you on the fence like me?
