At the beginning of this month we revealed the Mystery Quilt we started with the Kaleidoscope Collection.

Instead of just sewing blocks, we actually used all the triangles in an interlocking larger kaleidoscope pattern. It was a lot of sewing, but sooo worth it. Here is my quilt top:

We want pictures! We’ll do the “befores” and then in a few months after the border lessons, we’ll do the “afters”.

The quilt top below is made by Judy Best. She says:

“I spent the weekend sewing up a storm and have my “wedges” done for the mystery quilt, I’ve attached a picture of the wedges laid out on the floor. You suggested using fun fabric so I did, starting with a pink, white and black stripe fabric that caught my eye and added to it a check, small stripe, pink print, tone on tone purple, dark pink and black. To make it more challenging some of the fabric was from my stash and there’s a limited amount but so far I haven’t run out, but getting close. As always, I have learned a number of things along the way and enjoyed speculating what the layout would be. I was amazed and delighted with the layout setting and the ideas for more quilts using this technique are flowing. I’m sure this project was a lot of work for you but you did a wonderful job and it is much appreciated”

Judy, we love the checks and plaids and stripes you chose. It’s cool the way you alternated the mirrored blocks in row 2 to create dark and light pink V’s. I wouldn’t have thought of that.
