Mystery quilt finish party

When I taught the Against the Tide Mystery quilt last month, some of the participants got the idea that it would be fun to set a date and meet to see each other's quilts. So some of them came last week to share their quilts. Cathy's turned out gorgeous in all purples.
Dianne's murky background and watery border really set off her pinks. 

Kelli changed the position of her blocks, and came up with a whole different design. We liked it too!

Lora didn't like one of her color choices, so remade some blocks and came up with this setting.
 Kathy made this one for her husband and he laid out the blocks himself, coming up with this arrangement. Hers is quilted already and ready for binding.

It was fun to see them and they all said that having that "finish party deadline" really encouraged them to get it finished. The quilt below was made by Kerstin, who participated in the mystery from Germany by testing the pattern for me. Hers is quilted as well.

 Here's mine. I will probably be teaching this again next fall, since there is usually interest after people see the finished mystery. Let me know if you are interested!

great Quilts. Congratulations to all the ladys.
I also like the different layout from Kathy.
Thanks for showing.
