  • Our Jr. Group!!

    Our Mystery Quilts Anonymous group is growing quickly and large! We have some younger quilters in our group, our granddaughter being one of them. SO, Katelyn and I decided to start a “Mystery Quilts Anonymous Jr.” group on Facebook where she designs easy youthful patterns for us and the “more youthful” quilters to accomplish. We…

  • Busy-ness as Usual

    Seems like we are always busy and sometimes so many things stop us from doing the things we love. We have had some major life changes around here, loving every minute, but it has hindered my sewing time greatly. Our youngest and her children shifted across the world to come “home” and re-coup, grow, and…

  • Seems Like Forever

    I know it has only been 10 days since I posted to the blog, but I miss it and just thought I would check in and see how things are going for everyone. I love our group and I love the amazing quilts we make. We will finish Kindred Spirits next week, WOW! That was…

  • Life Changes…

    As with all aspects of life, there are always changes. I am no different. We brought our youngest home (to New Zealand) from the USA with her three children. For us, this means children in the house again. We haven’t had children full time for four years. We are home-schooling them… ages 13, 12, and…

    I am slowly adding my borders and finishing up Kindred Spirits for you. Slowly, because I am trying to write clues for other quilts at the same time. AND I have had so much inspiration from you with the way you are laying out your clue 1 units, that I have been spending time with…

  • Annual Family Camp

    Our church has a family camp every summer. It is that time of the year again. We leave today for the weekend. I will be back on Monday. I will have limited wifi, but will try to keep as much contact as possible. Martha will be around to help as well. She has made most…

  • Growing Pains

    It seems with every new idea and bridge we cross, there are always hiccups and growing pains. Our new website and blog are no different. We are working hard to make it so that you don’t have to log in or anything else to read or comment on our blog. I have it set up…

  • More Ideas

    Mystery Quilts Anonymous With all the feedback from yesterday’s blog, I just wanted to give you a bit more info to ponder and think on. Firstly, I need to be honest, since our beginning I have given this group and it’s members 1,000 percent of myself and my designs. I make NO money off the…
