Finished the Mystery Quilt Extraordinaire! Got the baby quilt almost finished. For those who are making this quilt, it is fun to make, and easy as pie. The center block is a turtle, if you are making a fun quilt.....or baby quilt......if not, it can have any block you choose for the center block where the turtle is in mine! Also see the Quilt of Valor made with the same pattern. It is below this article. Since I was making a child's quilt, it made it a little jazzy than plain vanilla. Putting antennae on the butterflies made out of the log cabin blocks using black embroidery thread.......and a few other little things like making embroidery thread ties in Blocks #3 like it is an aviary with birds in it.......and feathers for the geese out of the quilting......and eyes on the turtle and on the geese......just fun embellishments on the butterflies, as well. Have fun with this. Happy Days!
