2nd Advent - Christmas Mystery

Here are a few photos of the 11th Annual Christmas Mystery at Country quilts in Clearwater.  I have attended 10 of these 11, and was present at the very first one.  I look forward to this each year, and now have plenty of Christmas quilts !  This year the mystery was run over 3 days for the first time, since so many ladies now want to participate.

 Roni did the packaging for the kit, and as usual it was beautiful   I enjoy this part a lot, the packaging makes it even more fun !
Deanna made cake pops as name markers, such a cute idea.

This time I brought my Featherweight to make the quilt with, it is small and easy to use.  There is Janet in the background making progress on her quilt.

Some ladies working hard, some taking a break.

At lunchtime, the reveal by the teachers - our kit was made up in the chocolate/burgundy colorway, and the teachers made several versions in different fabrics to show how the pattern behaves in different styles.

Love this one - I think it was Lily Ashbury fabric.

Here is the center - Lynette Anderson fabrics for Lecien.

Look at this in bright Christmas prints.

My pile of blocks.  Now I have the top together except for the last border.
Happy 2nd Advent !
