Mystery Quilt Class is finished!

It never ceases to amaze me how quickly time flies. This year's mystery quilt class was called Scrappy Treasures. We started in February and just finished on Saturday. The ladies were able to finish their queen sized quilt tops throughout the year with each month's block being a mystery to each one. Some blocks we could finish in class, some blocks were taken home for homework. The tops were slowly being put together as they completed each section.

This final class was "Putting It All Together". They learned how to piece their backings and then layer their backs, batting and tops. There was even time to start basting them together! Because of the scrappy, country feel to these quilts, every lady decided they wanted to tie them. One of the ladies was able to finish tying her quilt that morning!!! Not quite sure how she did that!?! Mine is still sitting on my dining room table waiting to be finished as you can see in the pictures.

We always end our year with a potluck luncheon. Yummy! Everything was great.

A huge thank you to Sue Dawes who taught the class this year. What would I ever do without you? You are my dearest friend, sister in Christ and I love you!!! I wonder? Will we quilt in heaven?

Are you wondering about the other quilt I was supposed to finish a month or so ago? Well, that one is still waiting to be completed. Where does the time go?
