I had a good sewing day on Friday as you can see.  I finished the last episode, Episode 5 and the Finale.  Below is the final project.  What do you think?  The shapes and pieces are a bit larger than I've been doing lately, but the design is nice.  I do like the introduction to the Goddess Tool.  It is nice to have several different rulers all combined into one.  There are some limitations on sizes that will have you going back to the single rulers.  For instances the tall triangle in Episode 5 only allows for a 4 1/2" size.  Suppose if that is a common size for you it's a good thing.  I do work with the tall triangle although not usually this large a unit.  
I haven't given much though to the name for this mystery project.  Needs to be a mysterious name.  Are there any castles or mansions that have a mysterious background that would work?  Keep in mind the first letter has to be a "K" or can be changed to sound like one.  Okay Janet...you are good at this.   
These are photos Kerry took of the three sample projects that Tiffany Hayes used for the design reveal.  What a difference the fabric makes.

I'm working on Kurry today.  The last day of January already.  My goodness how fast 2015 is moving ahead.  Tomorrow is the UFO Parade and the announcement of what project I'll be working on in February.  Maybe I can get in a few more Kurry units.  Hope your Saturday is a good one.

my ideas.." Kastle Krystals","Kastlestar" or "Kavemania", just my cryptic crossword mind thoughts. Those blocks are super when in the whole quilt.

wow, different color ways really do make a difference. I really like all of them. Yes, it is unusual for you to have such large pieces. I know you enjoy your Friday off. Big PJ day....

Great work on the mystery. My vote for a name would be Karnarvon. Downton Abbey is filmed at Highclere Castle, home of the 8th Earl of Carnarvon. As for mystery...the 5th Earl of Carnarvon funded and accompanied the expedition to find King Tut's tomb. Was it the curse of the tomb that killed him a few months later? With the tall triangles, they could pyramids? Just my 2 cents! Great work on the quilt!

Carpathian Castle is the title of a Jules Verne novel from the 1800s that some think may have provided inspiration for Bram Stoker's Dracula.
Cryptic is a good word, too (defined as having a meaning that is mysterious), and conundrum shows up as a synonym for mystery. Lots of possibilities! : )
Interesting to see the same design in different colorways and how each one looks like a totally different pattern.
