SPOILER ALERT! Chain of Stars Mystery Quilt top done

I've been slowly working away on the Chain of Stars Mystery Quilt I signed up for on Craftsy. The quilt came in different sizes and first I picked the 64" x 64", but then I changed my mind and made the 48" x 48" layout. I like the result a lot. I had a little booboo that I had to correct which resulted in multiple attempts to fix the problem. I think I had to take the top apart twice before I could put it back together the right way. Then I took pictures of it to post it on the blog, and after editing the first one I realized I still had a turn in it that I had to take it apart again. I think I'll name this one 3rd time is the charm :))
I think I will put borders on the top and bottom to make it a rectangle, I don't know why I like them better than being square. Maybe because our bed is a rectangle? Who knows!

Top #1:


Top#3, the final result:

Of course by the time I got to photograph it it became cloudy outside so the colors are truest on the second picture. I didn't want to edit the photos too much.

'Til we blog again! :)


  1. Great work! I do like the chain effect int he design.

  2. Stunning! I love your colour choices. Happy Christmas.

  3. I also love your color choices! This pattern works better in the larger size, I think I may have to try it again.

  4. I like the autumn fabric colors. The top is lovely. I have not started on this class, however, I have been signed up for it since it was first offered. I am not a mystery quilter. I like to know what the end result will be so I wait to see what other quilters have put together. Thank you for sharing the photos.
