My Quilting Buddies Mystery Quilt

I have created my first ever mystery quilt. I am hosting it on My Quilting Buddies Forum. I am also going to post the steps on Fabricmom each week for anyone who wants to play along. I designed the quilt on EQ5.

New Quilting Group – My Quilting Buddies

A dear friend of mine Tina,  has started a new online quilting group. It is called My Quilting Buddies. If you like to swap or chat with other quilters around the world you might want to check it out. I am hosting a few swaps.

There are no sew swaps: 4 1/2 inch charms, fat quarters, fat 8ths, strip swap, and a layer cake swap.

The sew swaps are: a themed 6 1/2 inch nine patch swap, Scrappy Tennessee block, I’ve been framed block, Box quilt block, Stash buster block, and a wall hanging or table mat swap.

There are 3 different blocks of the month to choose from. There is also a barter board where you can post items you no longer want and list what you want for it. Very cool. I have traded blocks that I made but never made into a quilt and fabric I no longer wanted. We all have that moment when going through out stuff and think, “Why did I buy this?” Usually for me it was because it was on sale. LOL.There is also a list of great free patterns and tutorials.

I am hosting the scrappy strip swap, 4 1/2inch charm swap, and the 6 1/2 inch nine patch swap.

So please come by and say Hi and maybe join a swap. Hope to see you there.
