I just finished mine - I'll put it in Media as well. It took me awhile to sketch out and design the border, but it was well worth it.  I also had to wait on more of the pink to come from Arizona, since I ran out of it.

I'm calling it Mystery Floating City  or Floating Mystery City or Floating City Blocks or some combination of this.

This mystery quilt has really been a study in patience and precision for me! I am so glad you came up with this one, Nana. Thanks. So many interruptions, so little time. I have finally started sewing the blocks. It will be a while before I get it all together. All the quilts so far are absolutely beautiful. I love every one of them!!!

  Kim, this is really pretty.  I like the way you handled the borders.

This will be smashing when it's finished!

Everyone's quilts have turned out beautifully.   I love all the different colors that were used.   You all rock.   I am glad that you seemed to like the pattern and the completed tops.  I hope each of you have enjoyed the process.

I am really enjoying working with this MQ8, it has been so educational for me. First working on such small pieces, and 2nd setting on point, as I have never done that before. I was able to finally get to work on mine again. After hurting my arm, rebuilding and staining the front porch and spending the weekend working on trying to get wedding arrangements settle. (yap I am getting married on June 16th in the beautiful San Juan Island. Just hoping the weather is great). 

Had to run to the store and get more of the gold material. And worked on boarder until bedtime last night. I would like to set some blocks on the border ( looks good, and goes with the center as for being on point) but I am afraid it might be impossible or beyond my ability. The other material is printed so I don't know if it is beyond  me or just impossible to cut it so it stays right side up. I have to work the next 3 days so I will let my brain pick at it, or some alternative plan.

Everyone have a great week

Kim, love how you did your border. I'm really enjoying seeing how everyone has put their own stamp on the MQ8 with their borders.

This is so cool. Being a newbie I was wondering if you could tell me how you decided what border to use and how will you quilt it? this is my first mystery quilt as I have only worked with charms and stitched in the ditch. All the tops are lovely and I can only hope to be that good one day.
