Back in the fall I joined the Carol Doak Yahoo Group and did a super fun Twist and Turn Mystery Quilt.
Part of the fun was getting to play around with the blocks after they were completed before the solution was given. At the time I did not have a space to have a play with these blocks, but I do now. Before piecing it together, I tried a few different things.
(The photos are a bit crooked. My design wall is in a narrow hallway and I can't stand back far enough to get a straight shot.)
#1 is the actual mystery solution as designed by Carol.
In the second, I moved the inner red ring and exchanged it with the outer blue ring.
Then, I traded the pink ring for the blue ring.
Finally, I changed the red and blue blocks to point up instead of down
After it was all said and done, I couldn't decide at all.
So I went back to the original. Silly me.
Added a couple of borders...and DONE!
I am actually leaving it as a flimsy. I have no idea what to do with it. It's too wild for a charity quilt. I got to thinking that it's a real eye catcher, so I think I will hang it up high at craft shows-not to sell but to draw attention. (Ha! I've yet to even set up at a craft show for the last 10 years at least!) At any rate, I am not going to use up any batting for it right now.
