Fall Design Wall
Today is the first day of fall and so my summer mystery quilt to had to be finished yesterday! It was a self imposed deadline to have Kevin's Simply Sensational Summer Scrap Mystery finished by the end of summer.
This was the growing quilt on the design wall after adding the neutral top and bottom borders which I really liked! I pieced together lots of little bits to make these neutral borders and realized I wouldn't have enough fabric to make the layout that Kevin's quilt has. So I made one more dark border for the top and bottom.
I sewed and sewed and sewed some more. There are a lot of squares in this quilt... hundreds of them! Until finally all the borders were on and it was time for the photo...
Here is the quilt top hanging on the clothesline. The finished size is 65" x 80.5" and I'm very happy with how it turned out (and the stash it used up!)
A big thank you to Kevin for this fun mystery quilt adventure that resulted in this lovely energetic quilt! I can't wait to get quilting it!
