I too have made a mystery quilt I didn't like. The choice of colors was lights, mediums, & dark's. BUT my lights ended up being too close to the background fabrics. So they disappear into the background & they were supposed to be star points. It remains on our bed & my DH loves it. When doing a Bonnie Hunter mystery you could use a toned down version of her colors or collect all the instructions & do it after you have all the instructions. That's what I've done with her last one. I am color challenged I think.

Jinny is that a stack and whack? Never tried one of those. The color doesn't grab me. Is that what you don't like?

Isn't it amazing at the differences in our taste and color combinations. I dearly love everything about this quilt!

I made this OBW a few months ago from some striped orange/pink/peach fabric I received in a swap. I didn't have enough of the fabric to make the quilt as large as I wanted, so I added some borders. When it was finished, I decided I didn't care for it after all, but couldn't put my finger on what was "wrong" with it. I finally just slapped a price on it, and took it to the craft fair along with several of my other quilts.

Guess which one sold! LOL!

There are quiet a few quilts on here that I really like! (Yes, I'm also talking to you, Wild8580! I love the autumn colours!)

I decided right when I found out what a mystery quilt are that those aren't for me! I'm picky when it comes to choosing a pattern for my quilts and there are many that just don't appeal to me somehow!

The quilt I don't like I made is the one I'm calling "Falling Waves":

That is so funny, Moonrise.......I was reading this thread and thinking it's the old Goose vs Gander thing....what one person hates, the other loves. I don't see an ugly quilt on this thread, at all.....

DH loves it. He was the one that picked out the pattern and the colors. I love the batiks. But the pattern not so.

I have been known to use my seam ripper and take one totally apart to save the materia for a redo. I also LOVE your quilt.
