Its really a mystery...


...why I did this!!! But I finished the mystery quilt top. Its ready to be quilted to a fleece backing. Pattern is a little too close to Log Cabin for my tastes and it makes me DIZZY! Up close, I like it, but when I see it in a picture or in the mirror, its kinda weird. I think it needs some leaves or flowers or something! Picture is pretty bad...its really a cream color and a light leaf green, not olive!

What I did like about the process was the clever technique for building the strips that make up the block...

Made a big pot of turkey soup while I was stitching...umm, yum...

I followed along on the mystery quilt today, printing clues, etc. - I washed my fabric, but with other things to do, I never got it pressed or cut, let alone sewn. I thought the technique was interesting too, but not sure I'll actually make the quilt now that I've seen the finished product -- my dark fabric was too large a print I'm afraid for the finished quilt.

Suze, thanks for posting a picture of your finished top! Here's a link to the site that hosted the mystery quilt. We will shortly post a link to your blog on ours as well.

I really like the effect. I wonder how it would look in aqua and red.

I like it. I could see where it would get you a little dizzy after a couple of Cosmopolitans.
