Quilt With Us

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.

Oh, my!  I do love this.  Your fossil fabric works great.  What an absolutely stunning quilt.  You may have convinced me to try a mystery quilt.

You nailed this one, Carol.  It is a beauty.  I love the narrow rose border.  Nicely done!

Wow, that is gorgeous!!!!

I promise, I would never, ever, never design a pieced setting triangle for a mystery in any of my books. Never.
