    So .... here it is .... I was pleasantly surprised, and after I took the picture ... :roll: I found that I had done a typical Omak trick :oops:
    Thank you CB for doing this mini mystery. I am not a fun date and didn't stick in there for every moment, but I was thinking of you ...
    Things I learned from the mini mystery ....
    1" is too small for what I do if it is little bitty squares
    When someone tells you "light" ... big red and white spaces do NOT red light in one inch increments :shock:
    When someone tells you medium ... think REALLY dark ... although with the red and white, I don't think they make a fabric dark enough for the contrast the mystery was calling for.
    Variety may not always be the spice of life - - at least not in one inch increments .... I think that the little quilt could have handled a light that looks more like confetti falling through the air ... had I kept just one dark color at each of the six dark spots.
    And! If at first you don't succeed, by all means, try again!
    For now, this is the seed for one of the incubator covers imjustme is looking for, and with all those seams, it will be plenty light filtering .
    Without further ado ....

    this is what I got done at the Sewin at LQS ... there was a lady there who did most of my ironing ... agree with CB ... rather than ironing horizontal on ironing board - - iron perpendicular

    And, then I found the trick that I am NOT going to fix .... will be easier to make another mini quilt

    Good show, Miss Ninnie :!:
    With the layout of your mini, I can see all sorts of possibilities from my stash ... how interesting

    SO wonderful!
    Sometimes, the most straight forward approach is impressive...
    I would do another mini JUST to be able to do something like your layout, KW
    good show!

    While I was doing the final joining of blocks, they were laying on the table in a certain position ... and, I just couldnt' see that it wasn't going to be anything but a big mess because of my "light" choice ... but, when I got the borders on, and the mini ready for the photo, it really just started looking like I had known what I was doing.
    I swear! (even though my mother says I shouldn't) It wasn't until after I snapped the picture that I realized I had turned the left and right upper 2x2 sections ... by then, no way I was going back ...
    This was a grand mini mystery, and I will be looking forward to the next one.
    In the meantime, I am signing off to go pay bills, finish my THIRD mystery quilt from that one day special that got CB so excited, and put all the scraps from both mysteries into a little quilt for incubator cover ... and THEN! Cut some more strips for another mini ... JUST because I want to do better.
    :!: :!: By the way, SUZIC46 ... is there anything in my block that looks familiar? 8)

    So!
    I hustled my bustle and except for trimmings, I have put ALL the scraps from the mini mystery together. I wanted Peanut to jump up and pose for me so you could see just how big everything is, but he didn't cooperate
    These "scraps" will go into a center of an incubator cover ...
    moving on!
    Catch y'all later
    I can hardly wait to see what I actually got put together!
    THis picture taking thing is very helpful :!: :!: :!: :lol:
