Mystery fun!

Because my creative juices are actually flowing right now, I decided to seize the moment and start a new project. Woo! A couple of weeks ago, one of my guildmates sent out an email sharing this project. Of course, I immediately signed up. It is a mystery quilt by email from Heather Spence Designs.

The proceeds from the mystery quilt sign-ups are going toward helping the family of a little boy named Jack. Jack is recovering from the removal of a brain tumor, and his family needs help to cover the costs associated with the surgery and his rehabilitation. So far there are over 300 participants in this mystery quilt adventure.

If you are interested, it is not too late to sign up! You can sign up via Heather's Etsy shop, Heather Spence Designs. The first clue was mailed out last week, and Clue #2 will be sent out today.

The quilt requires a light, a medium, and a dark fabric selection. I scoured my stash and chose these:

I think (hope!) they will make for a fun quilt!

Today I even found a little time to start in on Clue #1 and do some cutting:

clue 1, cutting complete!

The sewing part for Clue #1 is pretty simple, so hopefully I can knock it out pretty quickly. Then I need to direct my focus back onto some other projects, including a wedding quilt and a Halloween costume for Big Bear!
