The mystery revealed!

I have been working hard all week to complete my Rocheberie mystery quilt designed by Jane and Chris. I sewed together the first quarter,

and then realised that there were quite a lot of component parts in my 'little blocks' box. This is where I put all the leftover half square triangles, four-patches and anything which has been joined together, but isn't yet a block. I was able to save myself a lot of time and cutting, as there are quite a few half square triangles needed for this design. I quickly got half way.

Then I was on a roll. With the end in sight and so many components all ready to use, it was very straightforward. Here is the completed top.

Doesn't it look good? Many thanks to Jane and Chris for designing and organising this. Now I'm going back to the dogs! (Literally, not metaphorically!)

Wow - wow - wow...that looks so good. It's always so strange seeing someone else work from what was originally one of my doodles. It looks great!!
