New Mystery

Another month is over for all intents and purposes and once again I haven't finished a single project. I don't care for this new trend that is developing. It's not like I don't have a dozen or more projects that could be finished with just a day or two or three of additional work.

So why, then, did I start another NEW project? Because my good friend, Cynthia, at Iowa Star Quilts has begun another mystery quilt called "Dinah's Delight". Step One is posted here. As usual it's scrappy, just what I love and a generous (60 X 75") lap or sofa size. So I couldn't resist. Here is my step one...12 Aunt Dinah blocks. I'm guessing they won't be set side by side like this though. Now to patiently wait for step two!

And remember the dark version of "Remembering Grandma" that I started piecing a couple months ago? I actually had all of the blocks done and set together before we left for Iowa. But I just added the plain outer border this week. It's 11" wide and the same fabric as the block background. I plan to add applique...I've yet to decide exactly what.




Doesn't this look entirely different than the original?

Oh yes, much different I had to concentrate a bit to find the pattern. I like your mystery blocks, mine will have to wait until after Dec 2. though but then I'll start to cut the fabric for them.

My word verification is torippa. To rip Pa. Not nice. Lol.

The Dinah's Delight blocks look good just as they are side by side. I am wondering what the finished quilt will look like.

I love your Remembering Grandma quilt! Isn't amazing how a simple color change can alter the whole design of a quilt?

Your mystery quilt looks great! I also love scrappy quilts. I loved the light color Remembering Grandma quilt when I saw it, and I think I darker one is as pretty, and I may like it even better. Way to go!
