    You will have two weeks to pick fabric. The 1st clue ois the fabric requirements. I then give you two weeks to pick out the colors you want to use before the next clue, If you are going to purchase on line, this should give you enough time to get it delivered.

    Hint - you will actually have 3 weeks to pick out the colors as we will only be working with the black for the 2nd clue.. opps said to much again!

      Hope I have you all thinking outside the box for fabric.

      Yes, there are 18 colors, plus the black background.

              Ah, I bit the bullet and joined. Have never done one of these before, so it should be interesting. I hope I'm not the only one who is a little apprehensive about it; am already thinking about colors.

                A mystery quilt is one that has several steps (clues) that are given out on a weekly or monthly basis until the quilt is reveled in the end clue.

                The pace of this quilt will be slow as it is geared towards beginners and those that have to work for a living or those that have family's to take care of and have limited time to sew.

                Everyone seams to be afraid of being able to keep up, trust me, you will be able to keep up

                  I have never done a mystery quilt -- but I love a good mystery to what the heck. I'll give it a go. Going to join now.

                      So, what does 1/8 to 1/4 mean? Is this a measure? Sorry, this is quite new to me...

                        Hi Sandra,
                        This refers to the amount of fabric needed, 1/8 yard or 4.5 inches and 1/4 yard or 9 inches or in Germany 114.3 mm and 228.6 mm or at least that is what Google tells me.

                        Hope that helps

                              Pre Clue #4 is posted in the Mystery Quilt group.. we are getting close, one more clue on Saturday and then Monday we are off!

                              Little hint: 18 fabrics seams like a lot of colors, but do some quick math in your head. 18 divided by 3 is 6, so we are looking at 6 colors plus black, not so crazy now is it? . . . . . or is it?

                                Oh boy! After reading all of the post, I'm excited!! I'm joining. Guess I have a reason to take myself out of "time out" and go to the quilt shop and buy some fabric, LOL :-)
