Karla your colours are not drab! They are soft and calming. Very nice blocks by the way.

Mine looks like Christmas too and I didn't intend it to.  Like you said 'go figure'.

Well, Step 4 is done! Count me in as one of those who is very excited about the Strip Tube Ruler. I impressed myself with the uniformity of my blocks! Not perfect, but so very much better than the old way. Like Nana said, there is also a wonderful advantage to the bias edge when it comes to matching seams. I decded to go for a masculine look with the red, black, and gray because this will be for my Dad. It probably doesn't qualify as "Tranquility" - maybe I'll call it "Simplicity". Note: with such a stark contrast between the black and grey, every little mismatch shows like crazy - especially when it is on the outside edge of the open diamond. I just ordered a couple of yards of the Marcia Derse fabric to use in the borders - it's colors were a perfect match, but I only had a fat quarter from a mixed bag. After doing MQ8 and MQ9, I must say that I am addicted to mystery quilts. My husband laughs at me on Thursday nights when I'm trying to get the next clue early (cuz I live in the west).

Thanks, Nana, for making this fun and thanks to everyone else for your input. I have learned an incredible amount about techniques and tools, as well as seeing other quilters' ideas.

Looks nice Sherrie. It has an asian/Japanese look to me. Not looking at the whole thing but it does have a relaxing look to it to me With the border material. it is like chaos (hope that isnt to harsh of a word, not meant to be) but then the inner is balanced giving it reflection and tranquility. Hope that makes sense

Thanks, Tami

You may be onto something there - the border fabric is called "Red Lacquer Bamboo", implying an Asian theme. You have a good eye for the overall effect - I was just matching colors.

Helen, I love your brown and paisley blocks!
