Minneapolis Modern Quilt Mystery Quilt Along

This year the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild decided to do a Mystery quilt rather than a block lotto. This ensured you could go at your own pace and that you weren't stuck with a small amount of blocks and trying to figure out what to do with them. :) The super talented Kristin from A Little Crispy has designed this years quilt. When I found that out I knew I wanted to make it because her quilt are absolutely stunning! Seriously, check out her patterns here.

If you want to follow along with us, feel free to get all the instructions at the Minneapolis Modern Quilt Guild Mystery Quilt Along site. Also, to see what everyone else is doing, visit our Flickr Group

Anyways, I have been pretty proud of myself, as I have not gotten too far behind the entire time of the Quilt Along. I have been completing the blocks along with my bee blocks so it has been pretty smooth sailing so far. Here are the blocks:

I am not sure what the finished quilt will look like so we will have to wait until next month and see!! This will be a priority quilt to get out and finish so I will definitely post pictures as soon as it is finished.

Have you ever done a mystery quilt along? Which ones have you done, and how did they turn out?

Summer of Bee Blocks

Summer is always a time of social activities and enjoying the beautiful Minnesota weather after a long winter. Because of this, I usually have a long lull in my quilting. This summer I basically just completed my bee blocks, along with some other projects that I will highlight in different posts. Here is my recap...it's a long one. :)
