I'm pleased that the 'likes' far outweighed the 'dislikes' for this year's mystery, so much that the next sampler quilt will be based on the same method (although each chosen block pattern will be published in its entirety so that quilters can get creative with components... or not).
I hope this mystery quilt gallery will grow, because there are (at least) dozens more quilts out there. Some are still being quilted, and their designers have promised to send photos when the quilts are complete. But the quilts and quilt tops already featured offer a glimpse of the wide variety of designs that resulted on New Year's Day (and since). To see lots more, take a trip to the mystery quilt forum discussion, where you'll find many, many more photos of the quilts. Thanks much to everyone who played along on the first (along with a reminder to send me those photos).
