Mystery Quilt Top Complete

Here's the completed top of the mystery quilt. I've been quilting it in the ditch and in diagonal lines through the blocks. I'm still debating what should go on the wide borders. Its ultimate destination is a bedroom at the shore house. I think it's kind of ironic that the first place I saw and loved patchwork quilts was in my Aunt Fran's shore house in Lavalette, N.J. They were made by her mother-in-law totally by hand in the 30's and 40's and Aunt Fran gave me two of those quilts when she sold the house. Now my beach house has something I made in almost every room.
