hi joy...i just saw your finished version of the last "mystery quilt" that you recently posted pic of. that is soooo wonderful...i love the i-spy idea...perfect pattern for i-spy for a child. i am thinking of doing the new mystery quilt and 1/2 or 3/4 size...dimensions are just way too big for a lap quilt for someone of my dimensions :)) ..thanks for posting your pic. i am not a member of that mystery group, so couldn't post there. i haven't seen a group formed by aqs for the newest mystery quilt by linda hahn...oh well. i am downloading the patterns as they come along and will redraft to a different size.
