Magnolia Mystery Quilt Finish

Back in July 2017, Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs launched her annual mystery quilt-along. This was my third time participating - I quilted along for her Midnight Mystery Quilt, her Meadow Mystery Quilt and I've now finished the Magnolia Mystery Quilt.


I love the design! And for once, I'm pretty pleased with my fabric choices - Carolyn Friedlander's Crosshatch in Creamsicle, Lace Elements in Plum by Art Gallery, Kona Charcoal and Carolyn Friedlander's Doe in White for the background.


The backing is a cotton sheet I bought on sale because I liked the colour and because I decided to make the larger size and really didn't want to have to piece the back.  The binding is more Lace Elements in Plum.


This is a pretty big quilt and I was going to quilt it on my domestic machine so I chose to go simple with the quilting - a big soft meander with Aurifil #2021 (white) in 50 wt.


The deadline for submitting a picture for the parade and possibly win some pretty awesome prizes was this week and the parade is scheduled for the first week of March. I can't wait to see all the finished quilts!

  3. I love your version; the colors are so rich and the snow makes them pop even more off the white background. Congratulations on the finish! Do you have plans for the quilt?

  7. I love the peach plum combo, classic yet somehow unexpected and modern. Did you have any troubles using a sheet as backing? Thanks for linking to TGIFF.
