Mystery Revealed!


I finally had time to finish up my Mystery Quilt this weekend. Well, technically the mystery part is done. I still want to add a border of some sort and then quilt and bind it. It is a 56" x 56" right now. I am thinking of adding a small white border and then a larger border (4" I think) of the heart print material. This quilt is going to be a charity quilt for a little girl.


I like how the pattern came together. I really love the smaller blocks and think they would be cute alone in a quilt.


I love how putting simple things together... 4 patches and HSTs in this case... can create a pattern that looks complicated. I need to try my hand at making up smaller elements and laying them out in different ways to create unique looks.


I am very visual which has kept me from participating in Mystery Quilts. I like to see what the end result should look like... most time. I also love to just jump in and do this and that and create a pattern-less quilt. After the fun I had with this Mystery Quilt, I am sure I will participate in more.
