TGIFF - Meadow Mystery Finish

The Meadow Mystery QAL hosted by Cheryl @ Meadow Mist Designs has come to an end.  Tomorrow is the deadline to submit a finished quilt (or quilt top) to be included in the parade of quilts.

And here is my finished quilt.


Sadly snow made another appearance.  😢


I spent a lot of time considering quilting options, but no ideas came to mind.  So when all else fails, an all-over stipple in white thread.  The white thread blended in so well with all the colours -- it gives the quilt some texture.


I found an awesome print for the back.  And now I'm regretting not buying more, especially since it was on sale for $5 a metre.


It was so windy, the snow kept getting all over the quilt.

  4. Wow Anja. This is gorgeous. The backing is the perfect choice when paired wi the colors on the front.
    Sorry to see all of that snow. I bet you are ready for spring weather! Hope it warms up soon.

  9. It is lovely Anja! And I love that backing fabric too. I know what you mean about the snow - Montreal got a few more cms overnight last night... I'm so done with winter!!

  10. The colors and values turned out to be perfect; hard to do on a mystery when you don't know the end at the beginning. Claire aka knitnkwilt

  12. $5 a metre - we in the U.K. Only dream of fabric at that price . I think I like your mystery quilt best of all those I have seen because of the bright colours . Well done

  13. An all over design works beautifully on this quilt, Anja. Congratulations on the finish. I really like that you bound it in the green accent as well.

  18. This turned out so pretty, Anja! The white thread really did go a great job of blending in and giving the quilt very pretty texture. I know snow isn't exactly what you wanted, but it sure does make for a nice backdrop, the quilt really pops against it.

  19. What a great finish Anja! I think your white stipple quilting is ideal :)

  20. Great finish! I love the backing you found and I agree that sometimes an all-over stipple is the way to go. :)
