The Big Reveal 2015

mystery quilt Nov 10, 2015

Last Saturday was the annual Big Reveal of the Mystery Quilt. It is quite nerve-wracking to finally share my design with everyone, knowing that they have invested time and money in making a quilt when they had no idea how it would turn out!

We started the day by showing the two samples that I had made, with help from Linda who did the binding on both, and Noeline Day who quilted the double.

So, here is the Vintage Roses Single

... and the Blue Diamonds Double

Once we had done the reveal, there was frantic activity while everyone got themselves set up to sew.

There were so many different colourways being made on the day - this one is called Graffitti Chic, and uses fabrics from Moda's Zen Chic range

Linda and Brenda had been testing out the instructions before the day. Here's Brenda's Kansas Wheatfields, well on its way

Carl made us a lovely lunch, and we enjoyed sitting out in the Wairarapa sunshine to eat

What a fun day! Reflecting afterwards I though how great it was to have people completing a project, as so often when you go to a class you come home with yet another UFO!

I'm really looking forward to next year's Mystery. The design is all done so now all I have to do is pick out the colours - I hope you will join me for Mystery 2016.
