The DaChintzy Code Mystery Quilt

There is a Mystery Quilt happening on the quilting forum! Magnifying Glass

I'm really excited and can't wait to participate.  I've done 2 mystery quilts in the past and have enjoyed them despite being a bit of a control freak so it's a little nerve-wracking not to know where everything will go.

I'm still playing with fabric combinations and haven't decided for sure which way I'll go.  I want to work from my stash as much as possible.

Given the dimensions, it will fit perfectly into the suggested sizes for Very Snuggly Quilts .  I have a few boy quilt tops underway for that but not much in the way of girl ones so maybe I'll make this Mystery Quilt into a girl quilt for VSQ.

In my quest for fabric I managed to unearth 3 more UFOs!  (the shame!!) Ashamed Emoticons I think I'm destined to become like Lorraine and Andrea who have one for every year of their lives! 

They will be duly added to the left bar.  On a more positive note I realised I have a few finished projects to add which I've forgotten about.

Thankfully the mystery wont start til September and I wont allow myself to start until my UFO challenge is complete!


  1. i saw the mystery quilt and was definitely tempted! but i have too many UFO's to start another i think.....perhaps ill join the next one.
    i love your idea of having your projects in the side bar....what do the other acronyms stand for?

  2. WIP = work in progress
    PIGS = projects in grocery sacks

    We don't use those brown bags here in Au but the acronym is so cool! It's whe you buy fabric for a particular project and it gets shelved in it's original bag without being cut or washed or anything!!
