    McCalls "Mystery Quilt" revealed!

    My friend Jean (on the right) and I (on the left) showing off our newest quilts that we made from the directions in McCalls Quilting magazine. The directions were spread out over 3 issues (6 mos.) We couldn't wait for the last issue to arrive so we could see what it looked like! S-o-o fun!!

    both are great looking quilts, sometimes it is hard to pick fabric for mysteries when you don't know what the pattern is, but you guys did a great job

    I agree, I find it very hard to pick fabrics when I don't know the pattern.

    Wow! I love them both!! It is always so interesting to me to see how different fabric choices can make a quilt look and feel so different!

    Pat & Jean: I love both of your quilts. Both are stunning. They look so different because of how you arranged you fabrics, it's amazing.

    They're both lovely, and it's nice that you both had so much fun doing them together. It's funny how the dark floral fabrics are so similar!
    Being skinny isn't easy, so I gave up and opted for being sexy instead. (aunty acid)

    Isn't it amazing how the same pattern can result in two such different, yet beautiful, quilts?

    I find it hard to pick the fabrics when I know what the quilt looks like! This was downright scary!
