Design Wall Monday - Mystery Quilt

We have been enjoying a winter blizzard here, which is perfect quilting weather. Yesterday I hosted a little quilty Superbowl party, and we sewed Quiltbug's mystery project called Neighbourhood Garden. I used a gardening themed print and picked the remaining colours from the print (grey, blue and red) using only fabrics from my stash.
Here's my finished quilt top on the design wall:

I added the garden tools border (it is the 4th border in which extends from top to bottom and side to side) because I wanted to make it bigger without sewing more blocks. It now measures 52" square.
You can see more quilt tops on the Quiltbug website - click here and scroll down to the bottom of the page.

The best thing besides quilting through the Superbowl was watching the commercials. My favorite one this year was the Budweiser commercial!
Happy Groundhog Day! I'm guessing that the groundhog will not be seeing his shadow today, which means spring is right around the corner!

  3. I saw you and the gal's quilts over on Kris' site yesterday - love how you get together for these. The groundhog can't even get out here - we woke up to 14" of snow and it is still coming.

    Very overcast day here, with rain to come. No shadows for any neighborhood groundhogs.

  9. Your Superbowl party sounds like so much fun!!! I need to remember that one year when Don is out of town :) And working on a small mystery would be perfect, especially when doing it together. My favorite SB commercials are always the Budweiser ones - tugs my heart strings every time!!!

  10. Hi Kathy! Next year I'm going to have to remember the Super Bowl mystery quilt. I looked at all the quilts. It's so interesting to see what fabric everyone chose. I really love yours. I'm glad I was able to download the pattern. It will make a great baby quilt.
    That Budweiser commercial almost needed a hanky!
