Lookee, lookee!!







Hi everyone!

See what I have been doing on this rainy, soggy, cold day? I previous had made all the blocks for Bonnie's Mysterious Quilt, and have been setting them together today. I took a little bit of design liberty and set mine together with sashes and cornerstones, and I just love it!! I am about 1/2 way done with setting mine together for the center of the quilt, and then will add borders. This will be my Fourth of July bed quilt. How should I quilt it??? Would love to hear your suggestions if you have any strike you.

Does anyone kind of hate to see the blocks gone? Weird, but I liked the little piles of finished pieces and blocks. Maybe that is why I have a lot lying around!! hehehe :) I like piles of fabric lying around too, kind of like potential energy...and the finished quilt is kinetic energy!!

Hope everyone is having a great Monday, whether at home or at work or at the sewing machine.

Thanks so much, Bonnie, for putting this mystery quilt out for all of us. It has been so much fun!

Looks awesome!
I will do mine with sashing as well, when I get back to it!
Ilove the block you have for your picture.
Is this from a pattern?
or is it an antique block?
thanks

I really like your quilt and the setting you chose! Do you have a pattern name or designer for this one? Being a longarm quilter, I think that I would quilt this one with an overall design as there is a lot going on and you may not be able to see a beautiful motif that may be set in the blocks. Unless you are planning on something special for the borders then I might reconsider. Thanks for visitng my blog and for the lovely compliment!! I love your blog and am subscribing.

Loveleeee, loveleeee! Sashes are just great - no suggestions for quilting though. I usually have to stare at a quilt for a while before something comes to me. The quilt is just wonderful!
