    For the first time in three years I've finished the mystery quilt top on the same day we started it. I even had a little nap this afternoon. (You know 10 eastern standard time is sure early here in California! :lol:) Anyway, here's my finished top. Now to find something to back it and do all the rest of the stuff that comes with a new top. Oh, you know. Quilting, squaring it up, binding, hand work, that stuff!

    Thank you!

    Started before the coffee kicked in! Whew! I only messed up a little bit (Cut one set too small!) Oh, well. There was extra fabric. Thank goodness!

    Congratulations on keeping up with the mystery. It seems no matter how hard I sew, I always fall behind. This year I've been gallivanting about rather than sewing, so missed the mystery part. Maybe will make the quilt later. If I thought mine would be a lovely as yours, there would be no question at all!!

    Yvonne,

    You did a great job. I really like the colors that you chose. Yes 7:00 is early, after staying up late, here in Utah it was 8:00 and I was just barely starting to move.

    This is great. Looks much better than the drawn diagram photo on planetpatchwork's site. Good job.

    Thank you for the sweet comments everyone. I believe the hardest part of this project was picking the fabric. It's working with value which I tend to find difficult.

    This is where the pattern starts. The pattern will be up for a few more days, I imagine, but she will eventually take it down so gather the directions quick. It is a very quick pattern and the top can easily be finished in a day.

    Good job, Yvonne!
    Here is mine, don't forget to put your picture over on the other thread, also ...
    I added a bit to the original pattern because I need a bigger sized lap robe for my veterans

    Omak, your quilt is great! I love the outside border. I'm not happy with the way the quilt pattern ended. I think I'll have to find a border for mine too. Thanks for sharing.

    Well, don't forget that there is a binding to go on to is, so that is why the pattern ended, since the binding can count as a border if it is bold enough.
    Thank you for the compliment. I can say that I did get this one day mystery done in record time for me ;-) :-P
