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!!

Absolutely lovely! Using the cream as points was brilliant! It really makes the other blocks "pop."

Terry said...

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.

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.

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.
