Magnolia Mystery Progress

The Magnolia Mystery Quilt by Meadow Mist Designs is the first mystery quilt I’ve done. It has been a fun quilt to make, and I’m enjoying finally putting the blocks together.

I chose the following fabrics for my quilt. It was a bit of a challenge to choose fabrics not knowing the design. Nancy from Grace and Peace Quilting was working at Quilt Cove (a local quilt shop) and encouraged me as I chose fabrics. She was a great help!

I enjoyed the pace of the steps of the quilt, with directions coming once a month. It gave plenty of time to get the steps done, as well as allowed me to work on other projects too.

The instructions are well written as well as visually helpful, making it so easy to piece the blocks.

So here are my first two blocks. I opted to make the lap quilt size. Once I have the top together, I’ll post a picture.

My Best Nine 2017

Instagram has its #bestnine going on once again. I haven’t posted mine on Instagram yet, so thought I’d post it here first.

The choices were interesting and typical of my quilting this year. I discovered improv this year, and look forward to trying more improv projects in 2018. Of course, I’m delighted that my little Tomtes made the cut.

Have you made a mystery quilt? Did you enjoy the experience? Why or why not?

I hope you have some time to relax and sew a bit during this busy holiday season!
