Thanks to all who have encouraged me in my struggle to "improve my attitude" about Mystery Quilts. I have finished the quilt top this weekend, and am posting a photo as promised. I think I like this one -- it was the defective pattern that was the bear!
Barbara, for you I am also posting the infamous pieced setting triangle!
I always name my quilts, so this one is "Triassic Terrazzo Tiles". If you look carefully at the moss green fabric, it has fossil ammonites, trilobites, and dragonflies on it. I bought it somewhere in Utah during a "dinosaur hunt" with my DH and DS while DS was in his "I'm going to be a paleontologist!" stage.
