Happy New Year! It's Mystery Quilt Day!

I've been at it since 8 am this morning. (good thing I went to bed at 10 last night instead of staying up to ring in the new year). These are the fabrics I chose for the mystery quilt over at . It's called Chips & Strips. I, of course, chose batiks. It's kind of a running theme with me.

Here are the first 2 installments of the quilt. Not much of a hint yet, lots of colorful squares so far.

Now, we're starting to add the light in and it looks like we're getting a stair step.

A couple of borders, cornerstones and a ninepatch corner to finish it off and the top is finished, Yeah!

Hopefully, I'll get it sandwiched up and quilted tomorrow. This one was really easy and fun. Love the jewel tones you get with the batiks. Have a wonderful New Year's Day!
