Mystery and more

Well we had our mystery class last weekend and we had lots of fun.  For those of you that have not participated in a mystery class before it really is a fun project.  There is some degree of trust needed in your quilt shop and instructor because you don't have any idea what your finished piece is going to look like but if you are willing to relinquish a little control, you can have a lot of fun and end up with a beautiful quilt!  We did a mystery quilt top using one of Debbie Caffrey's mystery projects and loved every minute of it.  Our oldest daughter, Val, from Las Vegas was our mystery instructor and along with all of her great tips not to mention her sense of humor everyone in the class had a wonderful time.  Val is teaching the mystery class at The Christmas Goose Quilt Shop in Las Vegas next weekend so I said I would only show one picture of the finished project so as not to spoil the mystery totally - so here is Val (center) along with two of the class participants holding up the finished quilt at our picinic celebrating the finish of the class -

Oh - its the picture of the back of the quilt - so I guess it is still a mystery - hope anyone that does a mystery class has as much fun as we did.  We will be having another mystery class so stay tuned!

This past weekend was a beautiful weekend for fall colors and we took advantage of it by doing a little color tour of our own - here is just one of the pictures we took!  Hope you all have a great weekend quilting or doing whatever makes you smile!
