Midnight Mystery Quilt - Assembly Part 1

Midnight Mystery Quilt – Block Assembly Part 1

Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs released the November instructions for the Midnight Mystery Quilt last Thursday. We start out by making a small handful of Half Square Triangles (HSTs) and then we moved right into the first part of block assembly. Fun!

I was really excited to be working with more of Fabric A this month (the yellow Mercury by Alison Glass print for me). Previously we had only used a little of it for the square-in-a-square blocks.

I keep vascillating on how I feel about using the Kona Snow as my Fabric D. I kept wondering about using something like Kona Nautical instead, so I auditioned it and have decided I am quite pleased with the Kona Snow. Good to know!

    I struggled trying to decide what order by 4 fabrics should be but have decided to go with my first decision in the end! So looking forward to seeing how this all comes together.

    You have made good progress. I really like the accordion look on the side. 🙂

  3. Like the kind of 3D effect on that. You know, the white works fine, and gives the piece one sort of sensibility. I think a light blue in the same tone as the swirls on the blue would work pretty well, also. Just a thought…

  4. Yvonne, this is going to be a beautiful quilt. I like the white with the other fabrics, but understand the thought of changing. I began second guessing my main fabric in a mystery quilt along I did over the summer. Now the quilt is all together, with the original Teal Blue that I chose and my husband and I have decided to keep it for ourselves (first quilt ever that will not be for someone else after 10 years)! Thank you for sharing and have a wonderful creative day!

    This is looking great! Love the yellow in there. 🙂 You know I looked a few days ago (probably a week ago) and didn’t see the new installment, and then kinda forgot about it…good to know it’s up there!

    I really like how the blocks/colors are coming together! This “mystery” component is fun to follow and try to predict–but I’m pretty sure I’d never have the courage to invest in fabric and not know what I’d end up with.

  7. Your blocks look great! I think that the white fabric was a great choice for fabric D, it will really allows all of the other colors to pop.

  8. Pam L says:

    I really love the color combination. I looked back at the original colors and like your choice!
    Can’t wait to see what it looks like all put together!

  9. Looking good! I finished mine today.

  10. That yellow mercury fabric makes all of the others just pop. This is going to look so great put together.

  11. Rochelle says:

    Love your fabric selections. So bright and cheerful. The Kona white lets those colors shine.

    ohh so pretty, the yellow is popping against the blue so nicely!!!

  13. Renee says:

    Oooh this is fun to watch come together!

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
