Friday’s Finish: April 28

This is my Melodic Mystery. Meadow Mist designs has a mystery quilt each year! I LOVE her patterns and the variety of quilts is amazing! Although I had the top done in time for the parade, I didn’t have it quilted … so I didn’t enter it into the parade. You can see the post with the parade HERE.

It was totally made from my stash. I used to collect Kansas Troubles, so it was easy to pull out a few charm packs and coordinating fabrics.

Here’s a picture of the quilting on the back. I did use Silly Moon “beanie” for the orange peal quilting and “rocket” for the straight line quilting … the rest was FMQ. Hobbs 80/20 is in the middle.

Cheryl has 7 mystery quilts and the clues are still available on her blog. You can check them out HERE. She will be hosting another mystery quilt starting in July 6. It will be called “Malted Mystery.” I’m pretty sure I’ll be joining in!

Trunk Show

In my last post, I told you that I had done a trunk show in person, in Hope, BC. I also mentioned that because my husband was helping to hold up the quilts, I didn’t get any pictures. Well, Maureen saw the post and immediately sent me a bundle of pictures! Thank you Maureen for being so willing to share your photos!

I started with some of my older quilts (not shown), then what my husband calls the “Bonnie Hunter years” (first 3 quilts – although I showed more of them.) Then a collection of Island Batik quilts with an Irish chain thrown in (from a class I teach). And I finished with several mini quilts.

Here is a selection of them:

One who sleeps under a quilt is covered by LOVE!

Happy Quilting!

  4. Your Melodic Mystery turned out beautifully. I still need to assemble my version. Cheryl’s mysteries are such fun. I think I’ve done all of them except for the her first one. Love the variety in your quilts for the trunk show.

  5. So cool, Gail!! The Bonnie Hunter Years. I love it. And darn it, not one shot or glimpse of your wonderful helper. The quilts are all lovely! I’m glad I don’t have to pick one favorite . . . but Melodic Mystery is fab and, and, and . . . they all are. Nice job. I think your trunk show was well received. {{Hugs}} ~smile~ Roseanne
