Tell It To The Stars

Tell It To The Stars

Last Month I was inundated with all of these potential new projects to start in the new year.  With all my other running projects and BOM and UFOs running in my head, I really didn’t want a new one.  I tried to resist the urge to starting a new thing and while Celtic Solstice was going on I was able to.  Now that it is done – even if I’m not, I’m drawn to the next mystery quilt on the horizon.   Judy’s Tell It To The Stars is an all year mystery quilt with a clue distributed once a month.  I have convinced myself that it is doable. 🙂

To make my life easier I purchased the hand dyed fabric kit from Vicki Welsh and received it last week.  I didn’t get purchased in time for the first step but I wouldn’t have been able to work on it if I did.  I’m working on the first step today!

Are you participating in this mystery quilt?

I want to do this… I do.. I really do…

Tell It To The Stars

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?
