PEI Modern Quilt Guild Mystery: Step 1

My addiction to social quilting continues. I joined another quilt along this month! I was posting on a Facebook page when someone told me about a mystery quilt sponsored by the Prince Edward Island Modern Quilt Guild.

Several months ago, on a lark, I bought an Anne of Green Gables layer cake from Missouri Star Quilt Company. I've never bought pre-cuts before or after, but who doesn't love Anne of Green Gables?

Clue one was to make 112 half square triangles. Here's mine:

The book in the center was written by a friend of mine from Michigan. In my pre-brain injury, pre-quilting life, I was a professional writer and Lorilee was part of my writer's group, The Guild. I think working on this project is going to be reminding me a lot of that sweet season of my life and my talented writer friends.

If you'd like to join along, it's not too late! You can find details on the PEI Modern Quilt Guild website or Facebook page.

  1. So glad to have you join us for the PEIMQG Mystery Quilt-Along. I love that you have decided to use the Anne of Green Gables fabric too.

  2. Thanks for posting your HSTs! Love your hashtag.

  3. Wow, this couldn't be more perfect! Anne of Green Gables fabric and a Prince Edward Island mystery quilt. This is made to happen! Love also that you have a second connection through your friend. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.

  4. Thanks for the tip. I didn't know about this, and I've posted about it on my QuiltBOM blog to spread the word. The fabrics you've chosen are lovely. I was very fond of Anne a long time ago. I should go back and read it again. If it matters, I think you write very well now, and I don't say that to many people. (@gingerkwilt on IG)

  5. I just love the palette of these fabrics. Very much in keeping with Anne, I think. You are off to a good start with the BOM so good luck with this stitching.

  6. That fabric is so cute! I cannot wait to see your progress on this quilt, it is going to be amazing! QALs are fun to join! Thanks for sharing!!

  7. I just love the Anne of Green Gables fabric, and what project more perfect than a PEI mystery quilt for it?! I had to buy some of this, too, and have a friendship quilt drawn up in my EQ - hope I get to start it soon!


We love hearing from you!
