Even with all the rest (aka naps), fluids, and “taking it easy” that I prioritized this week, I was able to piece together, quilt, and finish my Meadow Mystery Quilt this week. Each year, Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs hosts an amazing mystery quilt along, and I am really happy with how my quilt came together this year.
I was a bit nervous about the Kona Coal as my secondary background color, but it was all just a fear in my head. As soon as I put arranged the blocks on my design wall I knew that this was going to be a fast finish because I was so happy with how it looked! I have 3 solids in this quilt top: Kona White, Coal, and Oasis balanced with a bit of Lizzy House (Silver on Black Constellations) and Tula Pink (Mosaic in Glacier).
We don’t have any meadows with an abundance of wildflowers just yet, but I had to get a photograph of the quilt on some green grass at least. 🙂 I loosely quilted overlapping wavy lines using 50wt Aurifil 2024 (White). I used Quilter’s Dream Orient batting, so overall this quilt has a very soft drape and light loft.
I found a Northcott print at my local quilt store that I knew was going to be perfect as the backing, and I bound the quilt using the last of the Lizzy House Constellations in Silver on Black (which is also found in the quilt top).
