    It's much prettier than I'd imagined. I love the pattern, in fact. Now I have to make enough more blocks to make it a bigger size. I used up just some scraps from fabric that I already had, and here's the result. I can't believe how terrible the purples all show up. The color is distored in the photos, the actual colors look lovely together. It's much darker than I usual sew, but it was a fun project. It seemed kinda slow - I was ready for the next step much earlier than each hour, or needed larger steps. But what a fun project. Thanx ShellyQ for letting us know about it. Sara

    awesome colors sara, i also did this mystery quilt, i'm alot slower though...lol i'm still cutting. I will post mine when i have it together. Don't know how it will look i ran out of fabric, thought i had enough. No problem, it will be mine, and i'll just have to make a new one with the proper fabric needed. It sure is fun, i've never done a mystery quilt before. Happy News Year.

    Wow sarah! That is stunning! I'm so glad you enjoyed the project. I may have to go back and try it. I had guests here today and couldn't participate.

    Great colors. How regal it looks with all that royal purple!

    I quit on step 5. I'll finish up those gazillion pseudo 9-patches tomorrow. I did enjoy the 'mystery' but kept getting further and further behind. Sigh! I used to think I stitched things up pretty fast. Ha! Not even!

    Good job Sara!

    Sara, I like it with the sashing matching the 9-patches. Gives it a "transparent" effect. Very cool!

    I found it impossible to keep up with the steps because I was trying to make all the blocks at once. I had in the back of my mind that it might turn out to be a sort of medallion quilt... she fooled me! :wink:

    I'm working on different layouts. Since I used scraps, I don't have quite enough full blocks, so I'm experimenting. Can't decide on sash color, borders, etc. So while I'm doing my work, I have a wonderful helper . . .

    Bun is 17 years old, and a wonderful kitty. Her opinion is valuable to my quilting projects.

    Diamonds, the directions are up for 24 hours. Download them and do the quilt at your leisure. I won't be finished for days, I predict :!:

    Gorgeous! How nice of Bunnster to hold down those blocks for you so they don't fall on the floor!

    beautiful , love your colors. oh i could just squeeze your kitty, she looks so comfortable laying there. It's as if she is saying this is mine, no one else can lay on here.

    I dont think I've ever seen a Siamese with golden eyes. Quilt and kitty are both beautiful.

    The 2008 Mystery quilt is finished. I hate it. The colors are bold, garish, busy, and simply terrible. The blocks themselves are nice, the but total product is a disaster. But. . .

    I used up 4 large pieces of fabric from my stash.
    It's finished - someone (who is not in their right mind) will like it

    It was sure hard to pick fabrics for a pattern that I had no idea how it would turn out.
    Sara

    I sure used up alot of stash fabric! That's all that's left from 4 large pieces.

    Gee, I kind of like it! It does make a strong statement, but in the right room it would look stunning!
