Mystery Quilt Finished!

I haven't started to work with my pink scraps yet this month - click here to access the posts of other quilters in the Scrap Rainbow Challenge to see what they are up to.
I have been obsessed with finishing my guild mystery quilt to show at the next guild meeting and I met my goal!
This is a photo of the quilt's backing to show the wavy grid quilting that I tried. I first saw this idea on Wanda's blog called Exuberant Color back in 2009. Her more recent post reminded me that I wanted to try this quilting idea (click here to read it) and this was the perfect project to try it out. It was so fun and quick....I loved it! I will definitely try this quilting design again.



Then I found the perfect binding fabric in my stash - lots of bright colours with purple dots.




I like this photo on the right, which shows how the binding changes colour around the corner block.


Ta da... here is the finished quilt! It was a fun sampler project with some challenging blocks.  This was a pattern posted last year on Fat Cat Patterns.

This is wonderful. And I really love the binding changing color around the edge. I'm trying to decide when I can use the wavy quilt design on one of my quilts.... hum. Are you now on to the pinks?
