The Mystery Slowly Revealed

Ive really enjoyed working on the Mystery Quilt! Parts 4 and 5 went together quite quickly and easily and they look great!!

The pink/burgundy started to grow on me and when they were sewn together I was actually quite happy with my fabric choices:

So while working on Part 6 some decisions needed to be made on the setting triangles. Bonnie had used pink and although I was happy with the fabrics Id used, I thought there was enough pink in mine, so I opted to continue with the cream:

And I think it works quite well, I really love this!! Now I just have to wait and see what options Bonnie posts for the borders.......cant wait!!

  11. Your quilt is just beautiful Rose! I agree about using the cream on the edges. It really seems to pull it all together! I'm making a note to myself to do that when I get around to trying this pattern.

  12. Great quilt. You made good progress also. I am starting part 4 with a few blocks yet to trim. Football and housechores got in the way. I really like the finished quilt top.

  15. This is fabulous, hun! And you're so right, it does look like a mosaic floor! I really look forward to seeing Bonnie's suggestion for borders, and to see if you go for that option, or if you do something different.
