Two Mystery Quilts

Met up with my quilting friends in the Melbourne CBD group today, and had the opportunity to "compare and contrast" with another Grand Illusion mystery quilt:
Mine on the left, and Jeanette's on the right. It was interesting to see how our different fabric choices influenced the final outcome. The same, but different! I was very impressed that Jeanette managed to make hers completely from her stash, especially given that she made the full size version. I bought a bunch of green fabrics for mine.

It was great to see them together. I think they both looked better in real life than they do in the photos.


  1. I think they both look lovely--yet so different--yours has a pinker feel and hers a redder one to me. Great work...hugs, Julierose

  2. It was really interesting to see the 2 of them yesterday, especially as they were different sizes. Both beautiful pieces of work.

  3. All the mystery quilts are very diverse this time. Not just the color changes but also thoes completed as per directions. I think the 2 shown work well.
