Story of Project Linus 2020 Mystery Quilt – Clue #1

While the contest (read about it here) is in progress, I thought I’d share a bit about the making of my Lucy’s Love Notes Quilt.

PL2020 Lucy's Love Notes

First, not only is the contest a fund raiser, but the quilt pattern also raised money for this charity. In order to get the pattern, there was a $15 donation. This could go to the National Headquarters or can be designated to the local chapter. I do not belong to the chapter near me, but I did designate my donation to be given to the Montgomery County (MD) Project Linus Chapter.

If you are not familiar with Mystery Quilt Alongs (QAL), let me tell you how this works. It is a mystery & we did not know what the finished quilt would look like. Clues were scheduled to be released beginning on Saturday, September 26 and then on the next 5 Saturdays. After signing up (in this case, making a donation), on the first date we are given a clue.

Clue #1 ‐ 10 Hearts – 💕 It was nice to start off with this clue. Colors were our choice, but when given the fabric requirements, we did get the color suggestions that were used for the designer’s finished quilt. Picking colors always frustrates me so I stayed close to the suggestions. Anyway, what’s better than pink for hearts!

Clue #1 – Hearts

We get videos along with the Clues, showing us how to make the blocks. This one was pieced and easy to follow. The videos are good for beginners as well as people like me who are visual learners. After the Heart blocks were made we combined them into 4 units – 2 vertical and 2 horizontal.

That’s the first week done of the Project Linus 2020 Mystery QAL Challenge.

Reminder – Voting continues until midnight Central Time, Friday, February 19th. My quilt is #18 if you want to donate to Project Linus through this contest.

Hope you are getting some Stitching done this week!
