Midnight Mystery Quilt - Pieced Quilt Top

Midnight Mystery Quilt – Pieced Top

I was thrilled to receive the final instructions from Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs for the Midnight Mystery Quilt. The 72-inch square quilt top came together really quickly with the large 24-inch square blocks, and I love it!

I think I am going to suck it up and use more of my hoarded Riley Blake Rocket Blast in Navy for the backing and binding. I bought it to use it, right?

  17. I love your version! I can’t wait to see how you decide to quilt it.

  18. It looks great. I think the Rocket Blast will look great on the back. I’ve started piecing — I’ve got the columns done.

  19. Yvonne, your quilt turned out beautiful! The blues and yellows are spectacular together. It is really a nice change of pace to do a big block every now and then. It has actually been quite awhile for me. Your Rocket Blast fabric will be a great choice for backing fabric. Thank you for sharing and have a fantastic evening!

    Wow! This looks amazing. You hav been busy. I love seeing what you have been up to.

  23. At 24 inches, that is a whopper of a block! Yes, use the backing fabric you love. As you say, you bought it to use it.

  24. Renee says:

    The fabrics you chose ended up working perfect for this quilt! It came together so nicely, it was fun watching it develop.

  25. Your mystery top is beautiful. Isn’t it funny how we love a particular fabric but are afraid to use it? In the end it will look great no matter what. Any special plans for this quilt?

  26. Sally says:

    I don’t think you could have chosen more perfect fabrics for this one, and definitely yes for the binding.

  27. Love the colors you picked! Totally agree, my theme this year is going to be bought it, use it. I need to sew my stash 🙂 Looking forward to seeing how you quilt this one.

  28. Did you end up backing it that way, Yvonne? If you did, kudos! I don’t think I could with such an aprospo hoarded fabric!

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