Ooohhh! This looks so pretty - love the choice of fabrics too. Would love to join in but I have told myself I am not to start any new projects until I make a dint in my UFOs (and I am about to piece the quilt from the gathering!) Happy quilting - is this an annual event? Maybe I can aim to join you next year?

I love mystery quilts. So I will not peek.

mony caracheo

hola soy mony I love the idea of a salt mystery So I would like to participate I hope that this writing as well as I do through the translator and I said greetings


I'm in! I've been to the fabric store and then banned myself from visiting for several months. Not really into florals, so I have found a strawberry print which will work quite well. I'm really looking forward to this!


Hi Helen,
although here in Finland is frosty weather (over -10 C),the summer with mysteries is always interesting. I'll try to not peek... it's quite difficult to resist... I'm IN TOO!


Hi Helen!
This sounds like great fun! My 12y/o dd and I are going to join in. We chose fabrics today, and I will post about them on my blog soon. And I will not peek.... although it is very tempting!


Hi Helen!
I will upload now the button with your blog and the Great Summer Holiday Mistery (here it is winter though hehe...).
I just ordered the fabrics too...
Thanks for organizing this, you are great... I hope I can keep up the rythm
Love from Spain



Seria muy interesante participar.
Tengo poca experiencia con el patchwork, pero me gustaria intentarlo
Muchas gracias!!


Hi, I would love to try this, found you on Hooked on Needles. I will post your button too! thank you

Dzintra Ingrid

Thank you for this very generous of you!!!


Once again how generous of you Helen. Now this is tempting .


Ok this looks like fun, my first quilt ever and I promise not to peek....... best go and get some material


Hi Helen,

I am IN! Hope to visit Crows today t get my fabric - so exciting. Now I HAVE to get Oliver's quilt done by end of weekend so I can focus on this.


I'm no good at mysteries, but I won't peek at the pattern.

I don't have much of a stash anymore though - darn it. I suppose that means I need to go to a fabric shop? Ah well another reason to visit.


Hi Helen,
I like mysteries and I'm lokking forward to do this one.
Kind regards Heike

cindy rangel

I've got you linked. Hopefully I can get it done


I'm so excited by this. I've never done a mystery quilt before. I'm going to try not to spoil the fun for myself. We'll see how long that will D.:=)

Erika Richan

wow I love the colors you have. I am excited to fing out the design thank you for this treat

Mary Grace McNamara

Helen, this looks like fun! I hope you don't mind that I have written a post including information about your mystery quilt which will be published tomorrow morning. I think my readers would be interested in your project. Love your fabric picks bright and cheerful!


amanda Ryan

Even though it's the depths of winter here in the UK - the temperature hasn't gone above freezing for several days, and not forecast to for a while yet - I'll be joining in. If I can find some warm, summery colours perhaps I can fool myself. I'm going to try not to peek, but who knows.


Count me in. I am very excited about participating in a project you are sponsoring. I am currently stitching the NPNT blocks, a little at a time, and just love your designs and fabrics. I will be looking for my fabrics today. Thank you for sponsoring this.

    Colourque (R) is a techique I developed and use on many of my projects. It is nothing scientific, anyone can do it, it is meant to be fun and easy to do... it is simply using coloured pencils on fabric to get an applique effect. 'Faux Applique' a comprehensive technique book on the method is due for release late November. Watch this space!
