Earlier this month, I posted my fabrics for the Midnight Mystery QAL, that Cheryl@ Meadow Mist Designs, is sponsoring. It’s still not too late to join. Click here for more details.
These were my original fabrics below.
I love the way these fabrics look together. My “A” fabric is directional, with text, which just will be a bit tricky when it gets cut into HST. I found out that “A” would be easier to work with if it were a non-directional fabric. I did peek, because I really need to do the August and September steps for this quilt, because we will be away for most of September.
When we get back, I will be caught up with everyone else. In the meantime, I promised Cheryl no photos, except for the ones that coordinate with the month we are all working on.
My new “A” fabric keeps the dark blue in the mix the way I planned, and also uses medium blue for the fruit.
My “C” fabric below is a light blue marble print, and shows up much better in this photo.
And my “D” fabric shows up much better in this close up.
I love these gray swirls, and purchased a lot of yardage. It goes with everything, and would be great for backing fabric too.
In the meantime, I have to get back to working on the three baby quilts.
Looking forward to posting more on them later this week.
Cheryl over at Meadow Mist Designs is having a mystery quilt QAL, that I am participating in. I have never made a Mystery Quilt, but I have participated in a QAL. I have a strong feeling that this is going to be a lot of fun.
The July instructions came with cutting instructions for the four fabrics that I picked in June.
My fabrics are below, and ready for August sewing instructions.
I love the way A and B look together.
In this photo, you can see the details in the design of fabrics C and D.
These are all four fabrics together. Needless to say, I am so excited to be doing this, and sharing it with you.
Friday and Saturday, I will be in NYC at the BlogHer Conference, and look forward to sharing with you what happens next week, and what I learn. It is the first time they have had a BlogHer Conference this close to where we live.
The workshop choices are plentiful, and I feel overwhelmed already, because some of the class modules I’m interested in attending are being given at the same time. But I know I will learn so much and am looking forward to this whole experience. (Except parking in the city).
Have a great weekend and Happy Quilting!!
I have done one QAL, but I have never done a Block-of-the-Month quilt. When I thought about it, it’s really kind of an iteration of QAL. We are all quilting along together virtually, right? We share our work, and end up with one twelve block quilt, that is similar, but has our own personal stamp on it.
Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs is sponsoring the Midnight Mystery quilt block of the month.

This link will take you to our fb page, which is closed, but you can see how much fun everyone is having.
These are my four fabrics. We were told that fabric “A” and “B” should contrast each other. My “D” fabric is white with gray swirls. I chose it because it echoes my “B” fabric.
On another WIP note, by Monday night, I should have the top of my mini quilt for my quilt guild’s paint chip challenge finished, or pretty close.
This will be a good sewing week. And we are approaching my favorite holiday of the year, Fourth of July. What is your favorite holiday?
Happy Quilting, and have a great week.
