Being I just finished up this year’s mystery quilt I thought I would do a little recap of all the mystery quilts I’ve made to date.
Carolina Christmas was the ’09 quilt.
I didn’t know how to blog then and my pictures were terrible. This quilt lives at Kayla’s house. I loved the whole mystery aspect and was sold on making them after I did this first mystery.

I did this as the mystery. I wasn’t a string girl at all at the time. I remember dreading when I heard the words string. I almost gave up on the mystery right then. I can’t tell you how happy I am that I moved on beyond that. Strings honestly opened a whole new world for me.
Of all of the quilts, I would definitely make this one again. Of all the quilts I’ve made for mysteries, this is my favorite. I think the reason I love it so much was that this quilt sold me a scraps. Before this quilt I did scraps…but this one showed me I loved scraps.
Mine was all Civil War fabrics and it looked good in those. This quilt is a keeper. I won’t gift it.
