Monday Mystery/Design Wall

The finish line can be seen.....

Progress has been made and will get the rest together this week. 

The first 2 rows-


And all the parts finished-


I was a little worried that it was looking a bit like a Halloween quilt but it does not. In person, there is much more "texture" to it as the black and the neutrals are all tone on tone. Does not photograph well and let's just say, photography is not my long suit!

I also knew from past experience, the four patches would be a challenge. Easy Street proved that to me. It is far too common for me to turn them will sewing so I laid it out block by block and checked and rechecked so any ripping I did was done at an easily done stage. And let me tell you there were quite a few. Can you be dyslexic with orientation and not number or letters? Or is there another name for it? It has made assembly much slower. Had this issue all my life.

I love this quilt and the only change I would have made it is to make the 3 1/2 middle piece in the border a solid red so that the red reads both ways. 

I want this king-sized so will add a small yellow border and then the floral border with a black and green print for the binding. I happen to love the yellow in there, I know some did not.  

Bonnie will do another Link-Up in a month so it should be finished then.

Now I gotta go look at other people's progress at:


As Always,

  4. Quit taking photos in your basement, the lighting is horrible for photography -- that's why they aren't turning out. Bring the blocks/quilts upstairs during the day, preferably by large windows where the light is coming in nicely (but not creating a glare) and give it a try! Or outside when it's nicer and not snowy and all gross.

    And yes, it's called spatial reasoning :) I did not get mine from you, clearly.

    I love it, it's turning out great!!! Love you!

    1. Thank you dear daughter. When it is not below zero, the living and dining rooms are not shoved full of furniture and we are not remodeling the kitchen, I will try that. I love you more!
