Recently I began uploading the steps for a new Mystery Quilt to the Carol Doak Yahoo Group. The last time I did a Mystery quilt for the group, it was very successful so I thought it was time to do another.

First the fabric criteria (light, medium, dark, warm and cool colors) were given along with yardage and cutting lists. It always amazes me how quilters love to participate in a Mystery, not having a clue where it will take them.

Perhaps as a designer, I need that control…lol. As members uploaded their fabric selections, I began uploading the first step. This quilt used only three 4″ blocks, but different color placement and settings for the blocks offered variety.

Some members followed the graphic color’s that I used in the illustrations and others went down a completely different color road. Perhaps those are the adventurous quilters.

In the end, one member, Mona, did figure out the Mystery solution. However, I think I kept most of them guessing. I discovered I loved designing Mysteries and creating something interesting from very simple foundations.

Anita, decided to use the foundations in a smaller size and create a Miniature Mystery Quilt.

The photos of the completed Mysteries are still coming in. Each time one is uploaded, I enjoy seeing a new fabric combination and seeing how it impacts on the overall design.

Enjoy the show…

The completed tops are still coming in and still creating the mystery of how the same design can yield so many different looking amazing quilts.

All the best,

Carol
