So I decided to join in on the fun at the Yahoo group firstname.lastname@example.org and do their mystery quilt. I picked out my fabrics, you can see them here http://quiltramblings.blogspot.com/2009/12/im-sucker-for-mystery.html and waited for the clues. Well, I was good! I stayed on the track and didn't detour. I didn't even wait until they got finished and started mine ( that is sorta like reading the last chapter of the book before you are even half way done - yep, I'm bad about doing that, too! ).
Anyway, this is what I ended up with.. the border seems to blend in with my wood fence! so here is a picture that shows the colors better.. Even after finishing the quilt, I like my colors. Not sure I will do this pattern again, and I have to come up with a name. I added the dark purple border - that was my only detour! This is crib size, about 35 x 35 and I think I'm going to try to quilt this one myself.. LOl OY VEY!!! That should be fun. It will probably be a charity quilt - hope they don't mind my inexperience in quilting!
I have it sandwiched and I even found a yard of fabric with these same colors in it so I centered the backing around that yard ( shucks, no picture )
Wish me luck on the quilting!!
For other mysteries,, I think I'll skip to the last chapter of the book and see if I like how it ends ...
