Mystery top sewn and Alycia's mystery

     I am picky about doing mysteries and somehow I am sewing two at once. Not sure how that happened. I finished the guild mystery top which was a facebook mystery years ago. Now I have to find/make a backing and get it quilted, oh boy.
     I used hand dyed fabric (not dyed by me) and dark blue assorted batiks and assorted neutrals. Not a hard quilt- the components are easy to assemble.

Sewn blocks

Audition wide dark borders

Auditon color border with thin dark blue
Final choice after umpteen auditions- thinner blue with wider black scribbled border

     Alycia's A12 mystery is being assembled and here are 20 blocks laid out on cardboard trays, ready to sew.

Beautiful quilt Linda, but it looks totally complicated. I love the colors you used.

The mystery is gorgeous! We made a quilt like that for one of our guild members years ago. Everyone did a block. It wasn't like a mystery. It was also in batiks. LOVELY!

That mystery quilt top turned out beautifully, Linda!! What an interesting method for block prep.

I have to admit that I usually avoid mystery quilts but that first one is a real winner!
