Decisions, Decisions, Decisions me decide!!

While I was in Quincy in September, I was able to attend my Quincy Guild's retreat. We did a mystery quilt for which, based on some sage advise, I'd purchased my four fabrics using a monochromatic color scheme.

First I found a beautiful fabric for an accent, then I accented it. My instructions: choose a light, medium light, medium dark and dark. The block for the mystery was quite a surprise. Not only was each quilt different due to fabric choices, they were different because the quilts can be assembled in a myriad of ways.

These are the three I'm trying to choose between:


Sort of a Southwest feel:

Or a hodge-podge effect?

Hard to tell in the pics, but the background fabric has tiny blue dots on it, so it actually looks much better in person. wise: opinions??



  1. i like either the first or second layout. the last one looks a bit messy to me. the second one is probably my favorite. it reminds me of the southwest.

  2. The 2nd one is my favorite :0)

  3. My favorite is the southwest (second) layout.

  4. My favorite is the southwest (second) layout.

  5. I like the first and the second layout but I would choose the first as it leaves you more room to show off some of that custom quilting you have been learning at MQX!!!
    It looks good especially for a mystery quilt, sometimes they just don't work out as expected. I think because you were smart in your fabric colour choices.
    Reminds me to get back to my gigantic mystery quilt, I am hanging my head in shame...

  6. I love the first one. Don't you love a mystery quilt class. It is so fun to see all the different quilts from the same pattern. Good luck making a decision, remember there really is no wrong way when quilting!

  7. The southwest theme for sure. Now get busy and finish it!
