Malted Mystery Quilt and A Few Other Things


This is a whoops I did it again post.  About a month ago, while on vacation, I ran into charm packs at a quilt shop and fell instantly in love.  The charms in question were Dance in Paris by Zen Chic for Moda Fabrics.

I knew that if I bought a background fabric and coordinating fabric, I should be able to make something from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs Just Two Charm Pack Quilts book.  So, I guessed at fabric amounts and headed home.  Turns out the amounts I purchased where just enough to make a second version of Snapdragon Cove.  

The picture doesn't do these fabrics justice.  I'm so in love with this finished top.  Of course, it joins large piles of other tops needing finished, but at least this little earworm is out of my head.  I mean there are still probably 50 more in there crawling around begging to distract me.

Speaking of Cheryl and Meadow Mist designs, her yearly Mystery Quilt kicked off in July.  

I was lucky enough to pattern test once again for this project.  I love getting a sneak peek before the actual event.  I tried to take pictures of my progress so that I could share during the actual hop.  Probably for the first time ever, I used the same colors she used in the pattern.  They just spoke to me.

I went with print fabrics that for the most part read as solids.  

This is my progress for the September instructions.  If you would like to join in the fun and have a chance at winning some very cool prizes hop over to Meadow Mist Designs.    

And I will leave you with a project I am playing catch up on.  I was asked to make a T-Shirt quilt for my niece.  I have most of the bits pieced and the T-Shirts are all ironed to stabilizer.  The hope is to get this one finished before the holidays get here.  Wish me luck!
