I think they look beautiful and as for the words I didn't think they were meant to be straight, its looks 'hand written' if you know what I mean.

Glad you like the Janome.

Lovely, Steph. I was wondering how you were getting on with your new machine and I can see that you are having fun.

A number of us have Janome machines and like them.

It turns out that Eileen and I are doing the same 'Mystery Quilt' with our groups. Here are my blocks from Part 1.

I always find fabric choices hard for 'Mystery Quilts'. I always remember my first solid fabric quilt choices. That one ended up as dog bedding!

I look forward to seeing the finished quilts...both of you! Do you have a timescale...or is it a long term project! Rx

we started our mystery quilt before lockdown and the idea is one block a month. We have a show and tell every first meeting of the month and then the second meeting tends to be an activity session. I am not sure of the time scale for finishing it, especially under the circumstances.

I love your fabrics Margaret and yes this looks like ours too.

Our mystery quilt is a lockdown project intended to make us feel that we are all quilting together. 19 of us have joined and it seems that we are going to get weekly instructions, so I have no idea of the time scale or finished size of the quilt, but the blocks are 4.5" finished. We were told that the blocks would be simple but the fun would come at the end as there are no final layout instructions, so every quilt would be different.

I am no embroiderer, but this is my version of Bee Brave designed by Gail Pan and recommended by Rosemary. I used what I had to hand and the camera has distorted the blues. Just got the hanging sleeve to put on the back.
