Mystery in the Mountains

I am finally getting the pictures of my mystery quilt off the camera. If you happened to see the mystery quilts on the Wish Upon a Quilt blog, mine is quilt #3. I know it is a shock, but mine is the one with the green background. (This from the girl typing on the green laptop wearing a green T-Shirt....) Even I would not have thought to use this much bright green in a quilt. That really is the beauty of mystery quilts. They work no matter what you choose. I started with the brown and green batik that I fell in love with and then used a solid brown and the famous solid lime green batik as my dark and light fabrics. I LOVE THIS QUILT! And I had a blast quilting it. I am not a huge fan of the border I did. It added tons of texture and was fun to quilt, I think it is just not me. But I would do it again if someone else wanted it. There is lots of line dancing. And a design that I learned in Sue Patten's Feather Alternatives class at MQS. I really just played on this quilt since it is mine. And as a bonus.... (drum roll please)... I have a quilt that I made on my guest room bed. Normally the quilter has no quilts of their own. So with out further ado, I would like to present my mystery quilt...
