mystery solved... almost
I really enjoyed Debbie's class and would recommend one to anyone who was interested. She made the rounds the entire time and helped out and chatted at each table. She had some really cool timesaving tips. Here are my friends hard at work.
We did start out the class on a little bit of a low note for some of us. Evidently there had been some problems with the cutting instructions that had been sent out to some of the students. Some had all fractions dropped and some had only the eights dropped. Debbie had worked out re-cutting everything for the people with incorrect instructions, but their quilts would be smaller. Out of the group of us, naturally, I was the only on with the wrong directions. Mine had the eights dropped which meant where I had cut an 8 inch square I was supposed to have cut an 8 7/8th inch square. I had enough of the purple left to re-cut, but with the green I didn't want to cut in the first place I was 2 squares short. I decided that I would rather go buy more than make my quilt smaller. I am looking on the bright side. I found some online and now I need to buy at least another 1/4 yard and who wants to pay all that shipping on such a small purchase so of course I am going to have to buy more to make it worth my while to order. I'm going to end up with enough for that other quilt as well. :c) I didn't let it ruin my day at all.
Here is Debbie's version she revealed when everyone was up to the next to the last step. She then took out all the quilts she had brought with with her to give us a trunk show. She said that since we had such a problem with instructions we deserved to see the whole show. She showed us some quilts from each of her books and pointed out different little design features that add a whole lot to the final quilt. She told us that we were free to take and post pictures of the revealed mystery as long as we didn't give the name it wouldn't ruin it for anyone else since she has done 125 mysteries and without the name no one would know if this was the one they were going to do or not. She didn't give permission for the other quilts so I didn't take any.
Here is my color way that will be finished when I get the rest of the green. Being short 2 squares equated to being unable to finish 2 of the full blocks shown. I'm not going to stress about it. I really like it anyway.
Another good thing happened. I won one of the door prizes! I never win anything. I was drawn second which meant the first person got to choose which of the 2 prizes she wanted. The options were one of Debbie's books Scraps to You Too and this selection of fabric. I already have the book so when the first person chose it, even though these fabrics aren't exactly what I would buy I was thrilled. I think I can come up with something nice from this selection. All in all we had a great day and all love the quilts we ended up with.
