Mystery Quilt progress

By | January 18, 2015

Making some progress on the Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt. I’ve got the top together finally (minus the borders).

I am not pleased with some of my fabric choices (especially as it relates to value) but I’m happy with my fabric colours. I think this is one cheery quilt.


I’m linked up here. Check if out.

    It is definitely a very cheery quilt. I’m a big fan of bright colours. What will the finished size be?

    I agree, a very colorful and cheerful quilt – nice work! I’m sewing mine together today, and if I had known the pattern, I would have chosen different values of the colors. As it is the pattern is a bit lost in places because of the fabrics I’ve chosen. It will still be a pretty quilt, and I’ve learned more about value!

      Sounds like we both got the same lesson on value from this quilt. Nothing like learning a lesson the long way.

    The variations on this year’s mystery design have been great fun to see. I like your purples and oranges!

    I didn’t have time to do the Grand Illusion mystery this year so interesting to see your results — what color will you use for the border?

    Holy moley! That is fantastic. I love, love, love the colors! I’ve always wanted to do a quilt with oranges and purples. I’ve seen the Grand Illusion, but I love yours a lot. I like that it is so vibrant and an interesting mix of pieces. I know Bonnie’s quilts have gazillions of pieces. Kudos to you for making it and finishing it so soon!

    WoW! This is impeccable and definitely an eye-catcher! Do not fret at all your color choices, as you’re able to get two overall patterns forming when you really look at it. It’s very fun and speaks loudly!
