The Kings Mystery

I finished putting together AJ's Mystery Quilt today. I love the pattern, but I think my colours are too similar, it needed more of a contrasting fabric for the pinwheels to pop?I just have to add the border, I only have enough fabric to use stripes going out or mini mosaic squares?

Wow your quilt looks completely different to the others made in this mystery! Different and good! It's very rich and warm. It's funny, but you can't really see the pinwheels - they merged with the colours around them to make a whole new secondary pattern. It looks very cool. I like the stripes for the border if you can squeeze enough out of your fabric :)

Definitely the stripes. I really love the colours; pity the pinwheels didn't contrast enough, but you'll know better next time!

LOVE LOVE LOVE IT!!!! I think the colour choices are great considering that you didn't know what the quilt was going to look like!!....it can be dark in the photos I bet they are very lovely and rich in real life!!

I'm still thinking a red/orange border before the stripes...
