Earlier in the month, I set myself a goal to finish the Modern Mystery quilt top. I had been putting it off for months and just wanted to get it over with and move on. Well…I’m happy to say that I did indeed finish the quilt top! And not only that, but the entire quilt as well!! Woohoo!!!
Since I deviated a little from the front pattern, I tried to bring some of the off-center design in the back. I had a few left over pieces from the scrappy binding which ended up being perfect for the back. Is it okay to love the back more than the front? 🙂
At first I was a little nervous about using such a bold color (as opposed to white, which might have blended in better) for the quilting. I figured it would only make all my mistakes just that much more obvious (which it did), but I got over it. Hehe, I felt so strongly that it was the right thread to use, I figured what the heck, might as well go for it.
I especially LOVE the way the thread shows up over the gray pieces. It kind makes me wish I had more gray in the quilt overall.
Okay, now that I’m done gushing over my Modern Mystery quilt, I have one other March finish to show off. My Scrap Happy Sampler block of the month. In the chaos of finishing my MM quilt, I almost forgot I even finished this block at the beginning of the month. I apologize for just now getting around to sharing it.
