The mystery quilt shown below and answers to questions: It was a workshop project, we didn't get to "choose". Yes, the red and purple really are just like the picture. The quilting is DONE except for the black border(studid, I admit..but there are times we do stupid things..I'm no exception). Machine quilting it, or looking at it with 2006 vision wasn't an option. (Kind of like you can't go back and change who you voted for in the last election).This was my first mystery quilt, NO, I don't like them and NO, I wouldn't agree to do one again..workshop or no workshop. It's distrurbing how much "ado about nothing" this pattern is, and why anyone would design such an odd size piece. No matter what colors I used, it strike me as a quilt that is good for about NOTHING! And if you find you want to say, "I don't make quilts I don't like", NEVER take a mystery workshop.
