    I really love your quilt! And I believe it is Goose In The Pond as another person said. I hope you don’t mind if I put in on my Pinterest board. If not, please let me know and I will remove it.

      Hi Sharon! Of course I don’t mind – I find inspiration from other’s blogs all the time, and if you don’t Pin it you can’t revisit the inspiration when you want/need to. Thank you so much for your kind comment and visit. ~smile~ Roseanne

  2. How special is this quilt! I love it and the colors look like country to me. That always makes me feel warm and comfy….just like a quilt supposed to do. 🙂

  3. I can’t follow patterns to save my life…imagine a mystery quilt!!! That is why I am a designer lol.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Yanicka! Well, you are following a pattern even when you are designing them. In order for us to follow your design, you give us a pattern. I’m sure you are being too hard on yourself. Probably once you start a project, your designer side comes out and thinks of things that you would change. You can’t help yourself. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I have the same problem with almost every mystery quilt-a-long I have ever participated in. Because it’s a mystery, it is hard to choose fabric. Dark, light , medium, medium dark , not specific enough for me! If you just had an idea of what it looked like. That being said, a Bonnie Hunter Mystery is different. She gives color suggestions using paint chips. Of course you can deviate if you are confident, but that makes it easier for me to chose my fabrics.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Judy! It kind of takes the ‘mystery’ out it if we know the end result, I guess. I have never tried a QAL of Bonnie Hunter but I will check out her website to see if she has one coming up. Even though I love to read mysteries, maybe a mystery QAL just isn’t for me! HAHA Roseanne

    It’s the proof that you only think something is hard if someone tells you it should be – what an amazing first finish!

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Carie! Wow, aren’t you sweet?! I never thought about it that way but I think you’re right. We never thought we wouldn’t be able to complete the mystery. Thank you so much for your visit and comment. I hope you come again. ~smile~ Roseanne

    Your block is Goose in the Pond….I just googled it to confirm….however, that being said, there are a number of quilt blocks with more than one name….This is a favorite of mine….

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Sandra! Thank you SO much for supplying the name of the block. I have been poking around Pinterest trying to see it, but you know how that goes. Half a day later, and I can’t even remember that I went on there with a purpose. HAHA Thank you for visiting and commenting – I hope you come again. ~smile~ Roseanne

  7. I don’t think I would do well in a guild either – I tend to be a rouge quilter. *grins* I have given away so many quilts, I need to keep some of my own as “go-tos.”

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Tami! Ooh, a rouge quilter. Now that’s a picture. I’ll check out your website and see of your finishes. Thanks so much for commenting and visiting – I hope you come again. ~smile~ Roseanne

    I think it is a version of broken dishes. The inside of 9 patches isn’t part of the authentic block though.

  9. My guesses would be either a spin on the dove in the window or broken dishes but I’m not an expert. I think it’s lovely even if you don’t like the color combo in that one block.

    • Roseanne says:

      Hi Karen,
      Thank you so much for your visit and sweet comment. Obviously I didn’t dislike it enough to not use it over the years. It just bugs me every time I do though. ~smile~ Roseanne
