Midnight Mystery Quilt – With Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs

 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!!


Midnight Mystery Quilt – QAL

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.

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.

Back From Vacation

Back in early February, when the snow and cold were relentless, (it hasn’t exactly let up), we decided to make a spontaneous decision to go someplace warm during the last week in February. We left New York very early last Sunday, to go to Scottsdale, AZ, and came back on the red eye this past Saturday night. 

We had a great time doing nothing. Sometimes I get so busy, stitching, planning new blog posts, researching and writing them, I don’t get time to just relax and hang out, not to mention get enough exercise. 

Before I left I wanted to post this WIP,which came from Faith Jones blog. It is the first QAL, I have ever participated in http://www.freshlemonsquilts.com/?s=lighthouse+quilt

 

I finally finished the quilt top!! My goal for March is to have it basted and machine quilted. Wish me luck.

Happy Quilting!!
