A Friday UFO Finish!!!

I made the Moorewood Mystery, designed and hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. This pattern is extremely well written. The monthly instructions are easy to follow and very doable during the month! The pattern is available on the website. Thank you Cheryl for this unique and fun design!

This quilt counted as one of my UFOs because it could not be completed in 2020 … (my own rules as to what makes a UFO).

Quilt Stats

  • Size: 60.5″ x 72.5″
  • It is quilted with a beige thread – Aurifil 2000.
  • The quilting is simple swirls in the background and all of the coloured shapes are outlined. Nothing fancy … but I really like how it looks!
  • The batting is Hobbs 80/20.
  • The fabrics are Kansas Troubles that have been sitting in my stash for … um … well … ya … at least 10 years … I think!!!! And, for some reason, the container with the Kansas Troubles fabric is still pretty full!!!

And a closeup of the quilting:

Jennifer featured the quilt with all the ruler quilting on it. You can read more about it HERE.

Happy Quilting!

  1. Lovely finish, Gail! I love Cheryl’s mysteries! I did not sew along this time but seeing all the beautiful versions, I’m sorry I didn’t. Love your version and especially your swirly quilting!

    • Hi Emily!
      I really enjoyed this mystery!!! You know, there are SEW many sew-a-longs, and mysteries, and … and … and … we do need to pick and choose what we do! As much as we’d like to, We cannot do it all!!! 🙂

      • So true, Gail! I do want to do it all! But too many sew alongs are probably where my UFO backlog comes from! I’ve gotten better about picking and choosing but I still want to sew all the quilts!

  2. Your Morewood Mystery is fabulous. I too love the quilting you did. Sorry you still have a ton of 2.5″ squares but it must have been wonderful to be teaching again. I’ll bet the students got a lot out of the class including FUN!

  4. Congratulations on the finish, Gail. As for your container, I’m convinced that fabric reproduces in the night….except for the pieces I really love (and can’t get any more)…they disappear!!

  5. Hi Gail! Love your Morewood version. The closeup of the quilting design looks great but the fabric sure reads a lot lighter there than in the larger overall photo. Either way, it’s a beautiful quilt finish. Yippee for using up some of that older stash. That feels good, doesn’t it? Plus it makes room for some new stuff. ~smile~ Roseanne

    • Hi Roseanne,
      Thank you!
      I really really like your comment that using my fabric makes room for new stuff. Unfortunately, that’s not going to happen any time soon. Unless I get horribly blown over by some fabric that I absolutely HAVE to Have!
      In the meantime, back to quilting! 🙂
