    Diamonds in the Rough Mystery

    A mystery quilt from "Mystery Quilts Anonymous" on FB. I wanted to make a few quilts for men and the card fabric was perfect for the mystery. I love it when things work out.

    I love the effect you achieved by using the card fabric, gives it a really different look!

    Well I would say that worked out pretty darn well!! Fabulous! Can you get a close up of the fabric so we can see what you mean by "card fabric". Deck of cards??

    That pattern would be prefect for all those “I haven’t cut it small enough” fabrics we seem to acquire. Nice work.
