NYE Mystery Quilt - and a first for me!

I altered the pattern just a tad. Where the circles are...those were crosses in the original mystery pattern. The pattern was designed by Ann Smith of Quilt Talk, a yahoo group as a New Year's Eve Mystery. This is the fourth mystery of hers I have sewn. I meet with a friend every year for NYE, and we have a lot of fun sewing together. 

This quilt is 80 x 92"...a nice size for a bed or just to toss in the vehicle for long trips. 

The first you ask. Well, I haven't quilted a pantograph in a long time...and never Non Stitch Regulated..till now! I am pleased with the results of my efforts in non sr mode. For those who don't quilt...this won't mean much...but for those who do...this mode is generally scary as your stitches may not look uniform. I felt my quilting was smoother, faster and looked great considering the mode. I set the machine to 13 stitches and just went for it.
