2 mystery quilts

After a couple of weeks with no time for sewing, I finally got a little time in my sewing room today. Oh so relaxing.

I made the strip sets for the new fall mystery quilt project I'm starting.  And I have the slices cut from those strip sets. Ready for step 2 in November.  I've chosen a black, a pink, and a grey for my 3 colors.  This month's steps only used the light (grey) and the medium (pink).  What we are doing with the dark (black) is still a mystery.

Then I made 4 more blocks for the pieced borders on the summer mystery quilt. I decided to add the borders after seeing the other finished quilts at the show 'n tell.  I just really loved that extra border, but it takes a lot of these blocks. So I'll just keep plugging away on them. 


  1. I love how your new blocks are looking with those fabrics... that grey background is gorgeous! Pieced borders are futzy but worth it.

  2. Its like eating an elephant--one block at a time!

  3. Can't wait to see them when they are finished:)

  4. Love that pink fabric. It's always so fun to see how mystery quilts turn out.

  5. Aren't Mystery Quilts fun? I haven't done one in such a long time. Love the pink and gray combo...those are the 'In" colors these days. I'll look forward to seeing what the black adds, too. I'm a new follower.
