    Prestidigitation Super Bowl Sunday Mystery

    I finally finished my super bowl Sunday mystery quilt... Took me a few days to get it all done due to having other things going on but I was determined to do my first mystery quilt. Thank you fabriclover for hosting it!

    Here is my top... I'll get it quilted up in the next few weeks. I'll post an update once it is fully finished.

    Very nicely done. I am going to make mine larger by adding black borders. Discovered I am out of black fabric, go figure. DD borrowed my bolt of solid black now I have to buy more. Sounds like a shopping trip to me.

    Thanks guys. I missed a few points and I'm still considering fixing them but it's just going to be a wall hanging so I might let them slide... but I did get most of them. I try to get them all. I ripped out some along the way but after putting it together I saw a few off...
    I'm glad I didn't use the fabric I originally pulled for it. At the last minute I grabbed the red and blue and am happy that I did. It isn't *quite* so pastel in person but it is still pretty light. I guess in hindsight a bit less white would have done wonders... but I've had those materials for a long time and didn't know what to use them for - this seemed like the perfect project.

    That is a very striking quilt! It makes a big impact with only 3 colors. Great job!

    That's gorgeous! I'm too much of a controlfreak to dare making a mystery quilt... :-)
    I love those pink and blue fabrics, would you mind sharing who makes them?

    Sadly there is no manufacturer information at all on the selvedge... nothing at all. It's printed from edge to edge not even white on the edges.
    I can say that I'm sure it is waaaaay out of print. I got it about 2 years ago at a yard sale. A woman was clearing out her fabric stash and a friend of mine called me saying that there was absolutely gorgeous material. I had her buy it sight unseen, thinking that she knew my tastes... well. I bought about 70 yards of old lady materials with a few chunks that I liked. I have been unloading that stuff ever since lol. I sold most of it at my own yard sales and those two were some of the ones I kept but never knew what to do with. I thought they worked out perfect for this project..
    Oh yeah, I don't let my friend EVER pick up fabric for me sight unseen anymore. I learned my lesson. She didn't even want any of it either....

    Beautiful! You did a good job. I haven't done a mystery quilt yet. I kind of like to know where I'm going. LOL

    Is the pattern somewhere on this site? I've now seen a few of these and they all look wonderful!
    Go forth and sew!
