Magnolia Mystery Parade

Last fall Meadow Mist Designs hosted a mystery quiltalong called Magnolia Mystery
I sewed my blocks into an octagonal tabletopper instead of a bed quilt. I don't know why... the idea just popped up when I had the blocks on the design wall so I started sewing it together that way.
This week Cheryl has been posting the reveal parade of over 200 quilts made from the same pattern. It's amazing to see the same pattern made in every possible colour combination that you can think of, with sashing and without, with borders and without... the creativity and possibilities are endless!


Check out the mystery quilt parade:
Day # - quilts #1 to #70
Day #2 - quilts # 71 to #140 (my quilt is #73)
Day #3 - quilts #141 - #202


I was also amazed by  the variety of layouts and quilting designs on the quilts in the parade. I quilted my version with a free motion swirly design that is one of my favourites to quilt.

  1. What a great idea, sewing it into a table topper! I never would've thought of that! It's very pretty. I haven't quilted mine yet; that will have to wait a bit. It was a fun mystery quilt project, and I'm so happy with the outcome! Really fun to see all the different colorways for the quilt too!

  2. I love that you quilt your quilts on your home machine...gives me hope that I can do it too! That is a cute saying...I think I could survive anything as long as I could still stitch away the hours!
