Hoopsisters Mystery Has Begun! Well, sort of.

Hoopsisters Mystery started last week and I managed to purchase it on May 31 when they released it early! Unfortunately I don’t have my water soluble thread yet so I can’t stitch out any blocks until that comes in. I decided to use Quilter’s Dream Poly batting too so now I also have to wait for that to come in.  Oh well! I’ll have to do two weeks worth of blocks all at the same time.

Here are my fabrics for my blocks:

I haven’t chosen my backing fabric yet but it will likely be a solid to show off all the embroidery on the back.

There are a few other quilters joining me – so far I’ve talked @ltdermdvm and @SewExcitedQuilt into joining me. I won’t be able to show photos until July due to their rules but I traded cell numbers with certain people so we can share our photos personally since we’re involved.

Here is a video showing the blocks you work with and will eventually combine to create the mystery:

I’m really excited for the Starburst block. I can see me doing an entire quilt just with that block. Not so sure about the others but they are nice too.

Are you doing the mystery quilt?


  1. You know I’m in 🙂 Plan to start week 2 tomorrow hopefully. this week has been beyond insane! Great idea about a solid back…why didn’t I think of that, lol?
