ATC and Mystery

This months guild ATC theme is music - anything that has to do with music - favorite song, favorite artist, album, instrument, etc.  I love music - I have a very eclectic taste in music and it's all in my ipod.  I have over 2,400 songs on my ipod right now.  I listen to it all day at work (via a speaker - not with the ear buds) and I even drive with it on, usually listening to a book on tape.  So instead of picking a favorite song or artist, I made my ATC's to look like my ipod.  I even did the back of the card to look like my ipod. 

This year I'm in charge of the Mystery Quilt for the guild so this weekend I worked on the quilt to make sure I had all the clues right.  Good thing I did because in Clue 6 I found a cutting error (which was Clue 1).  Whew.  I love the fabrics I chose.  They are all from designers samples from last seasons fabrics - this one is Park Slope by Free Spirit - one line but I got a few different color ways - 40 different fabrics.  I kept the background consistent with a Kona white.  It will be crisp and springy.  I love it.  I just hope everyone else will like it as much as I do.  This picture is from Clue 2. 
Guild meeting on Thursday and we have Joe Cunningham as our speaker.  I hear he's great and am really looking forward to it.
