  4. These are all so beautiful! I always love seeing different interpretations of the same pattern. Congrats on a wonderful pattern and a truly successful mystery quilt along. I can't wait for the new one to start this summer. You know I'll be there stitching with you.

  7. Oh my! What a beautiful parade that was! You must feel over the moon seeing your design in so many variations! I may just join the next one!

  8. This is really fantastic! The pattern really stands up to pretty much any combination of fabrics, doesn't it? They're all really great.

    (In other news: I totally forgot to email you a picture of mine! I planned to do it yesterday but somewhere that thread of thought got lost. Alas!)

  9. What a fun, and stunning show! You know the pattern is genius when every quilt turns out beautiful! Love the scrappy ones, the Christmas ones. Vasudha's variances are beautiful, love scalloped edges with this pattern, all the blue & gold beauties, and the blue and red too! Veronica's has a terrific retro-vibe, while Lara brought the Manly Modern version. I looked at Joan's layout for a long time, love the movement & I think this would be great as an alternate block too.

    I am completely smitten with KatrI's, love those greens with turquoise!
    They ALL look so cheerful -congrats to everyone!

    1. Very kind of you to say Heidi, but I failed to follow the proper instructions, thinking if scrappy was okay, that I could use my fabrics in any order. I am thankful to Cheryl for providing a great QAL, I will be sure to follow the instructions much better next time as I look forward to the July one.

  11. This was incredible to go through this morning. I am especially intrigued by on by Nancy; her color choices make the pattern read so differently and I really love that. Thank you so very much, Cheryl. These mystery QALs you host are really wonderful and fun. <3

  13. It was so great to see all the variations! Many made me stop and look more closely because the pattern looked so different depending upon the fabric selection for the various pieces. I also didn't know that blogger would allow you to upload so many photos!

    ReplyDelete
  14. Wow! So many wonderful versions. I'll be blogging about my finish tomorrow. Thanks again for hosting.

  20. I loved looking through all of these! So nice of you to put them all into a blog post to make them easy to peruse. For several quilts that I liked with an associated blog post, I visited and commented on why I liked the quilt! I hope more people share their quilts on blogs or Flickr, etc. for the next go-round so we can all share the love!

  24. Seeing all the different Midnight Mysteries on parade is so fun Cheryl! I fell in love with quite a few of them! You must get an even bigger kick out of seeing all the fabric combinations than we do. Isn't it amazing how much a fabric choice and placement can change the look of your pattern?

  26. Wow! It's amazing seeing in so many different colorways. Love it! The different color combos almost make it look like it's a different pattern. Thank you, Cheryl, for making this happen!

    ReplyDelete
  27. Oh WOW! These are spectacular! It must melt your heart to see them all together like this!! How did Beryl R and Liz M happen to use identical fabrics?? I just love all the different palettes and looks! It is just wonderful!

  30. What fun seeing all these different variations...I have some favourites...not saying which ones but I might be making different choices in the next mystery! Thanks for doing this Cheryl. It was fun except for cutting the courthouse steps.(just kidding) The pace was great, with lots of time to catch up
