    It's much prettier than I'd imagined. I love the pattern, in fact. Now I have to make enough more blocks to make it a bigger size. I used up just some scraps from fabric that I already had, and here's the result. I can't believe how terrible the purples all show up. The color is distored in the photos, the actual colors look lovely together. It's much darker than I usual sew, but it was a fun project. It seemed kinda slow - I was ready for the next step much earlier than each hour, or needed larger steps. But what a fun project. Thanx ShellyQ for letting us know about it. Sara

    awesome colors sara, i also did this mystery quilt, i'm alot slower though...lol i'm still cutting. I will post mine when i have it together. Don't know how it will look i ran out of fabric, thought i had enough. No problem, it will be mine, and i'll just have to make a new one with the proper fabric needed. It sure is fun, i've never done a mystery quilt before. Happy News Year.

    I got behind on this to seem I just get going good and either the phone would ring or my Dad needed something. I did print all the direction and will post picks when done.

    mgrhs go print out instruction and then make it later they will be up for 24 hours

    Wow sarah! That is stunning! I'm so glad you enjoyed the project. I may have to go back and try it. I had guests here today and couldn't participate.

    Great colors. How regal it looks with all that royal purple!

    I quit on step 5. I'll finish up those gazillion pseudo 9-patches tomorrow. I did enjoy the 'mystery' but kept getting further and further behind. Sigh! I used to think I stitched things up pretty fast. Ha! Not even!

    Good job Sara!

    Sara, I like it with the sashing matching the 9-patches. Gives it a "transparent" effect. Very cool!

    I found it impossible to keep up with the steps because I was trying to make all the blocks at once. I had in the back of my mind that it might turn out to be a sort of medallion quilt... she fooled me! :wink:
