2004 Mystery Quilt Top Finally Done!

This was called Sweet Confections because of the colors being in chocolates and pinks. The blocks are 8" and there are 20 pieces in each block.....not really my cup of tea. Especially after I started adding up all those 1/4" around the blocks which added up to a lot of extra inches. 12 pieces have 4 sides and 8 have 3 sides. Anyway, I'm keeping this one as I don't have one for myself, except a wallhanging.

The last border is all chocolate candy on a pink background.

Beverly, I thought about the gaining weight thing, too! lol Guess you can tell where our minds are....or think of it as great minds think alike?????

Carolyn, Thank you. I'm just glad it's done up to this point. As long as I'm keeping it, I might do a meander over it all.....I keep saying I'm going to learn to do that but so far it hasn't happened.

Fran, Only 2 years......and that's only the top! lol

Judy, Thank you.....would love to see your chocolate sampler pattern sometime. I did some meandering on the Fish Panel quilt......really need to practice to become more comfortable with it.

Thank you, Rosa. I'm one to really like to see what a quilt will look like before starting it, but, it does make one branch out into doing things we would never do on our own.
