The mystery quilt revealed

I finally took time to sew all the blocks together for the Meadow Mystery quilt. It's all ironed too.

I will probably add a border but not right away. There is still some of the black floral fabric left so I would have to piece it. I also have quite a bit of the off white broadcloth. Two borders would be fine by me.  
I have other things now to sew, knit and quilt. There's no hurry to finish this quilt. The blocks are 12" finished so it's a 60" square quilt at the moment.

  1. It is a very nice design. Love the colour combo you have picked. It speaks bright and light. Congrats on getting to the flimsy stage. ;^)

  2. Beautiful, Dolores! I usually like dark borders, but I'm not sure about this one. Perhaps two, one dark and the other light.

  3. Lovely fabrics and the way you have set out the blocks is great. I hope your envelope arrives soon, Kamloops was snowed out when the family were due to fly, a delay of 4 hours, than at Vancouver a hasty run to check in, go through customs, then another 2 hour wait in the plane ( they had boarded) as the runway and the plane had to be de-iced.I guess for those who live anywhere there are used to this. All in a day's work for the pilots and crew, I admire them immensely.

  4. Your quilt is lovely! It looks like a mosaic that you'd see somewhere- like maybe Instanbul or Turkey, don't you think?

  5. I really liked your blocks when you showed them, but together they are even better. The fabrics you chose are perfect for the pattern and the colours are very calm and lovely.

  7. That is beautiful. You seem to have chosen just the right fabrics for the design.

  8. I like this Dolores - the colours work wonderfully and it ended up being a nice pattern. I took part in a mystery quilt project at our local guild way back when and ended up absolutely hating the end result. Never had the incentive to try another one after that.
