Mystery Quilt

This quilt top was done at my church.  We have a sewing ministry called Scarlet Threads Sewing Ministry.  Kathy Stuard taught the class.  Earlier this year we made a mystery quilt.  We brought so many light, dark and medium fat quarters.  Each month we were given instructions as to what we should do but we had no idea what the final product was to look like.  Here is my final product

Friday and Saturday the 19th and 20th of August I attended the Stash Busters Party.  And we sewed and sewed and sewed.  It was wonderful.  The pattern we used was Cozy Quilt Designs, Radiant by Daniela Stout.  I made two quilt tops and was worn out when done on Saturday evening.  All the quilts turned out BEAUTIFUL.

Tuesday night the 9th we did very very cute decorator pillows in class.  We quilted as we went.   Did some machine quilting on it and some buttons also.  Ties in the back to hold the back panels together.   Learned lots of new ways to do things and just had an over all good time!

This past week, July 11th – 15th, I took my granddaughter, Mia and her friend Rachel to sewing camp in Trenton, KY.  We had a good week and they made a rail fence quilts.  (TV size) and I made one in a Halloween motif that was a larger square quilt.   That pattern came from the Quilt in a Day, Rail Fence Quilt, for kids at heart, by LuAnn Stout.   It was to be a Mother/child class that turned out to be a  grandmother/grandchild week.  There were two Grandmothers, me and Lisa.  Lisa had her grandson, Hunter and her granddaughter, Rose.   I had my granddaughter Mia and her friend Rachel.  Mia is from Colt, AR and Rachel is the daughter of a good friend of mine.  They met at VBS this year and became friends.

Last night I went to sit and sew at the church and we are starting to cut out our quilt.  Well kinda!  I bought my book a few months ago and I have torn the house apart twice looking for it.  Well yesterday before sit and sew I figured I would never find it.  So I ordered a new one.  At sit and sew Justine let me look at hers for what I needed.  (thank you 🙂 )  Well I said as soon as the other book gets here I will find the first one and guess what?  It did not take that long I found it last night!!!!!!!  Oh well.   So now we have to get things cut out because we will start sewing in October. 

I am using Moda, Civil War Crossings by Barbara Brackman.  It is BEAUTIFUL.  I bought the large fat quarter bundle and am going to get some coordinates to do the sashing, border, binding and backing.  I have never done a quilt with civil war materials.  I usually go for the brighter ones.  But I think I am really going to like this one.   I am making the 12″ blocks, 16 of them and the last one tells a story about the quilt.  I can’t wait to get started sewing.  I think I better have the HQ Sixteen up and running by then!!!!  I will want to quilt this one right away.  Then maybe I will quilt a few of the other ones I have ready to go.  (Maybe lol)
