Who is up for a quick and easy Cottage Mystery… anyone?


     


Size:  14” x 26” finished. 

It’s designed in a romantic shabby chic colourway, just in time for Valentine’s Day.
(But, instructions are also given to easily adapt it to any colourway to suit your individual taste). 

It's ‘fat quarter friendly’ and only requires 4 colours for the top (plus backing and wadding to complete it). 

The easy to follow instructions contain lots of line drawings and coloured diagrams as visual aids.


Time Line:  6 Days
Cutting Instructions:  4 Feb 14 
First Clue:       5 Feb 14
Second Clue:   6 Feb 14
Third Clue:      7 Feb 14
Forth Clue:      8 Feb 14 (top reveal)
Fifth Clue:       9 Feb 14 (big reveal)


Please sign up here  to participate. 
Your first email for fabric requirements will arrive as soon as I see your post.
Please leave a comment here if you miss any instalments.

sounds like fun ... reckon i could find 4 fatties for this .... maybe not shabby ... but i have something among the stash .... just have to dig out the stash .... oh .. but now i have somewhere to put it ... it has its own little room ... woohoo ... Marcos said he will empty the trailer and the stuff from under the bus bed tomorrow ... and then i can sort it at my leisure ... 

i think i will enjoy this living in a house thing ... for a while at least .... 

so .. yep .. count me in Evelyn ...

ok .. got my second installment .. for the cutting and slashing of perfectly good fabric into little bits ... 

now to go and pick out some fabric ... it is in the area that it has to live in ... but .. still not at all sorted or organised .. that will come at a much later time ... hopefully when i don't have 8 tubs of fabric to sort ... haha ..

Thanks Bobbie, good to know.
I have decided I HAVE to find the fabrics for this project in my stash.
I think I will be sewing wadding strips from trimmed quilts together to use too!
And the backing.......... maybe I will do a second version and make it reversible?  scratch

I love the first lot of fabrics you put up Bobbie, they are really 'me' colours. The second set would be equally as sweet when made up too! Great colour picking there on two counts!!!

Good morning ladies.

Check your email please, I have just sent out the first clue email.


So far, I only have confirmation from Bobbie that the emails have been received.
Could Lorna and Helen let us know they have gotten theirs too please?
If not, please leave me a personal message with your email address (NOT in this thread please as it is an open thread).

You are on a roll Bobbie and you used the first set of fabrics posted - beautiful!

I wonder how many others have a stash full of impulsive purchases like I do?
I was very brave to say I was going to get my fabrics from my stash. 
I eventually managed to do it and now I have no less than three colourways to choose from!!! 
Yikes! Another decision!
 lol!

Sorry to have been missing for the past almost 2 days, minor problems with the pc.
Fingers crossed it is fixed now?

Thanks Lorna, you are fast, can't wait to see all the finished runners!

Lynn you should have a few emails in your in-box waiting for you.
We only have two more instalments to go, woo hoo!!

Would love to hear what you all have to say about the mystery so far?

Hi, Evelyn, I will sew the #3 clue this morning,,,,,,,,, my runner is going to be mild, my choice of medium pink is too light, when I make another one as a gift, I will pick a darker pink.  My kitchen table is 5x3 feet, it will be necessary to add a section or two. hugs, Lorna
