Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs is hosting her second online mystery quilt. Just getting the cutting instructions into my hands made me even more excited about this project. I love a mystery quilt. It's not too late for you to join in. Head over to Meadow Mist Designs for the fabric requirements and cutting instructions so you can catch up and start sewing with us the first week of August.
My fabric pull is entirely from my stash. I started by choosing orange, since I had an abundance of orange blenders in my stash, then worked from there. I moved my colors around a bit from my previous plan. I'm going scrappy and using the following colors:
Set A: Pink
Set B: Teal
Set C: Orange
Set D: Light Grey
I got them all cut out the first week of the month. Now, I'm excitedly waiting for August.
I missed Cheryl's first mystery quilt (Foothills Mystery Quilt), but I have previously completed two other mystery quilts: Candy Shoppe and Bold Blooms. In both of those I never saw any other finished quilts from the same pattern... it will be very fun to see how this project develops from all the different palettes as people share their progress online. Remember, it's not too late to join in. You have lots of time to choose and cut fabric before the next set of instructions come out on August 6th.
Have you ever done a mystery quilt? What's your favorite part? Is there anything you didn't like about the process?
