Finished Mystery Quilt

I finished the quilt I wrote about HERE


As I mentioned, I chose these colors and low-contrast fabrics because I am going to donate this quilt, and I realize not everyone shares my tastes.






Overall, the quilt looks very pale to me. My husband said it looks "old-timey."


The stars are pretty up close, though my yellow is so light that it almost can't be distinguished from the neutral.






 I put my extra blocks (I ALWAYS have extra blocks!) on the back. The backing fabric is also a very pale yellow.




Though I may not love the colors, it was, all in all, a successful mystery--thanks Judy!



And here is my helper looking at me this morning as if to say, "You want to put the quilt here? I thought all the extra room was for ME!" :)







Happy sewing!

  1. Another beautiful masterpiece. Old timey simplicity and colors. I know it was hardly simple to make but the finished "look" is clean, uncomplicated and beautiful!
