At the beginning of the month, my quilt bee got the last clue to the mystery quilt and were finally able to see what it looks like. (Fortunately I had finished both of my tops before I got sick.) I'm going to keep the black/brown version and the patriotic version is for QOV. They're both a nice size at 72" square.
Now that my bee has finished the mystery, I can also share where I found the pattern. When looking for a mystery that we could do as a group, I just happened to stumble upon Persimmon Quilts website. What a great find! She has an entire category dedicated to QOV mysteries and this particular one is #28. I looked through most of them and there are definitely more I'd like to make.
I already have the patriotic top loaded on the frame so I hope I can get it quilted soon. I'm going to have company for the next week and a half so I know that there won't be much sewing going on then. However, it's a visit I've really been looking forward to and I plan to have lots of non-quilty fun!
Here's a picture of Sam with her baby. She's been really playful the last few days and it's good to see her acting so young.
Better a poor man who walks in integrity
than someone who has deceitful lips and is a fool.
