The Mystery is now a flimsy

2014 NYD Mystery quilt top is a flimsy. I am linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes with this quilt top finish as my January goal ~ link to blog post. Link up # 181. Update: This baby is quilted!!!

After a few block layout changes plus I decided to add borders, this top is ready to be quilted! Notice I couldn't do the misfit layout of the original.
Quilting on my New Year's Day Mystery quilt
I am quite pleased with this one, you never know how a mystery will turn out! All the fabrics are pulled from stash scraps and FQ's except the light print in the large HSTs are cut from two half yard pieces that came from Honey Run Quilters. Many of the fabrics are left overs from Petit Fours, a quilt I made from a kit from Morning Star Quilts. Barbara, a new quilt customer recently brought her Petit Fours that she recently finished that I will quilt for her. When she unfolded her quilt top I immediately knew the quilt! Nice surprise!!
Petit Fours made in 2010
This is a pic of my Petit Fours made in 2010 for my friend Suzanne. The left over border print is in most of the blocks in the Mystery quilt top and more scraps I added to the Anvil blocks.

My goal this year is to use up stash and I think I got a pretty good start on that one :0) Another is to start blocks on a 2014 Barbara Brackman ~ Threads of Memory BOM and do a QAL with Lori of Humble Quilts. Both of them posted the first blocks, Lori yesterday and Barbara this morning on her Civil War blog. Check out the links. Off to sew as I have blocks to make this weekend!!!

Enjoy your weekend! Thanks for stopping by


  1. I love how your mystery quilt turned out, especially the colors. Is that the Hovering Hawks block? At any rate, I love it. Now to click over to Barbara B's blog, and decide if I need yet another project to start!

    1. Thank you. At first glance I thought Hovering Hawks, it is similar. This is Anvil.

  2. I'm doing a happy dance for your finished flimsy! It's a happy quilt!

  3. Your new flimsey is a beauty, and all from your stash. That makes it a double winner!

  4. making progress! the other quilt is so pretty.
    I really shouldn't go look at the links you put on this post!!! LOL I want to join in!

  5. That turned out really great. Congrats on getting it done!
