I hope you have had fun stitching up till now!!!

Are you all ready??? You have now stitched all the pieces for this mystery – and… we are ready to get started!

Two things 
One – My son pretty much designed this one. He did all the pre- planning, and the stitching of the blocks – ok – except for the stars – he didn’t want to sew those! 

Two – remember those books where you would read a chapter – and then choose an outcome, before the book would tell you which page to read next?  This mystery is sorta like that. We put it up on the design wall, and they had an idea – and all the men started making changes to it.   Sorta – how do you want this one to look?  I think you will have fun

Here is the original design layed out:

But then my son had a new idea :
He loved the idea of a bullseye in the middle…..

But after he ate dinner! He had a third Idea à

So how will you design yours? I would love to see if you go with one of the suggestions, or if you come up with something even  more different.

Be sure to email your finished top photos to me ( Email in Profile)

And come back next week to see what we finally chose.

Wowzers! Love the reveal. Great job by your son. I love all three. Can't decide on my layout. My husband will help me decide, he is more creative than me! Thank you for another great QOV mystery. Tanya and Dennis

Great quilt. I especially like the 3rd layout which makes the quilt look 3D.

Sherrill said...

GREAT JOB! Love it (well, all of them)!

I love them all. This quilt was so fun to make and so easy to keep up with. Thanks Alycia for all your beautiful patterns.

All great ideas! Think I'll offset the stars with spacers so I don't have to match the points ;-) Thanks for another great mystery. Carlie

I'll be tackling this soon - maybe alongside the new one! I've decided I'm going to do your original layout. I really like the simple lines of that. =) Thanks so much for leaving this up so I could get all the parts and go ahead months late!
