A winner and a mystery quilt-a-long

As well as a royal wedding here today in the UK, I have a couple of other bits of news.  Firstly, I have drawn a winner for the Simply Solids giveaway.  And a layer cake of your choice goes to the person who made this fabulous mug rug for her grandmother who is in hospital from my fishy piecing tutorial.  You know who you are but I will be sending you an email anyway to get your mailing details to pass onto Mandy.

And are you interested in a mystery quilt-a-long?  My Scottish quilting friend Sheila from bluepatchquilter, who has been teaching quilting for a fair few years is running a mystery quilt-a-long
from her blog and through a Flickr group.  Fabric requirements have just been posted and the blocks instructions will be going out fortnightly.  When she first taught this mystery quilt-a-long a few years ago, it was made by the people in her classes in more traditional fabrics and she and I are looking forward to seeing the quilt being given a new lease of life with new and modern fabric choices - just my type of quilt!  The quilt-a-long kicks off tomorrow so, if you're intrigued like me, head here to grab the button, here for the fabric requirement post and here to join the Flickr group and share your progress with a crowd of other mystery quilters.

  4. Wow! That's my quilt.

    Thanks.

    As for a mystery QAL, I'd love to but must finish 3 quilts before I can start anything new.
