    Patriotic "Fandangle" Mystery Quilt

    I enjoy mystery quilts very much and this was one done in my patriotic fabrics stash and was lucky to find the perfect backing before I began the mystery I just need to bind it. Thanks for looking!

    That is a really nice mystery quilt. I like that it's not a sampler, but a cohesive quilt. I've made those star blocks too, but used a different alternating block. Just perfect :-)

    So very pretty. I've never done a mystery quilt but want to try one some day. I really hope mine will turn out as pretty as yours.

    Great RW&B quilt. I've never done a mystery quilt either. I think it is because I want to know what the end result will look like before I invest all the time and effort, even though most I have seen I do like. *sigh* so many quilts I want to make and so little time.

    I, too, enjoy participating in mysteries...great finish! Don’t you just love it when you can use up your stash.
    attitude is everything...the rest will fall into place.

    Great quilt! Love the backing too. I'm always disappointed when I do a mystery quilt, I guess because I can't make the colour placement choice until its too late

    Great quilt and fabric choices. I'm another who has not done a mystery quilt. My health is very iffy from day to day so I'm always hesitant to join one.

    Yours is great. I have tried several mysteries and did not like how they turned out. I really need to see the end so I know to use big or small prints, and which color brightness is needed where. So I stick with the BOW or BOM of what I know. But again, Yours looks fabulous.

    Absolutely lovely quilt! I agree, I too love mystery quilts.

    When life gives you scraps, make a colorful happy quilt.
