Magnolia Mystery QAL {Flower Units}

I was really excited when I saw Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs‘s November instructions for the Magnolia Mystery Quilt on November 2nd: Flower Units!

I spend my Sunday afternoon chain piecing the units together. I chose to do things in sets of 8. Sew 8 seams, press 8 seams, repeat.

I really love how my fabric selections came together in these units. I made the 4 Right Facing and the 4 Left Facing units first, and I resisted the urge to piece a full unit together and worked my way through the chain piecing steps.

As I was ironing the last seams on the units, I asked my husband if he thought we had any flowers still blooming in the yard. He brought me these three lovely roses (they smell even better than they look!).

I am happy to be all caught up with the Meadow Mystery quilt for another month. It’s been fun checking out everyone’s fabric combinations as the month progresses!
