Midnight Mystery Quilt – Fabric Prep

Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs released the July instructions for the Midnight Mystery Quilt, and I jumped right on them and have my fabric cut and ready to start sewing together in August!

The Yellow Alison Glass Mercury print is my fabric “A”, the blue swirls with yellow stars is my fabric “B”, the navy Riley Blake Rocket Age Rocket Blast print is my fabric “C”, and Kona Snow is my fabric “D”. I am so in love with the Rocket Blast print – it was a lot of fun to pet and look at it while I was cutting. 🙂

    Yvonne, I am one of those people who has trouble cutting up fabric I love. As I look at you neat piles I see how beautiful the cut up fabric really is though. Your combination of fabrics is wonderful!

  14. Ack… you’re the third of my bloggy pals to post about this Mystery QAL. I am getting tempted again. Love your fabric choices. It’s so funny to me to see the blue and yellow print. I had a whack of that in my stash for such a long time. I bet I would still find some 2½ inch squares of it in my square bin!
