Fat Quarter Shop Designer Mystery Quilts

I finally finished the quilts!  This past years Designer Mystery Block of the Month from Fat Quarter Shop was made with Edyta Sitar's (Laundry Basket Quilts) blue and cream line called Snow Bird.  FQS is generous with the amount of fabric you get and by ordering a mini fat quarter pack extra I was able to make 2 blocks of each block with lots of fabrics left over.  Here's the original quilt pattern set in the way they designed it.
 Here's the other quilt with the extra blocks and extra fabrics from the finishing kit.  I think I also bought more of the blue dot fabrics.
 Here's the quilting on the back of the quilt.  Both were custom quilted by me and my Bernina.
 I also finished by guild's challenge quilt.  I can't show it all yet, but I wanted to prove (and log the date) that I finished it.
 I finished binding these quilts this weekend while spending Father's Day with my dad.  Like I've said before, he watches a lot of National Geographic and that type of tv so I always bring handwork.

Our guild is having their Ice Cream Social at the July meeting and I thought I'd donate this mini quilt for the monthly auction.  It's the extra block I made from the Fat Quarter Shop's Snapshots July block.



Thanks for looking.

Cute! Love the ice cream sundae! :) I'm sure it will be a hit. You're doing well, to finish big things in June. It's so hot I'm not inspired to do much of anything!

thanks for showing your quilts! I have the mystery top finished and am trying to decide if I want to custom quilt it myself or send it to a longarmer for an ETE pattern . I love how you have quilted your extra quilt, can't see the quilting on the original quite as well. The FQS is so generous with their fabrics for this. I have made and extra quilt with the leftovers for the past 2 years and plan to do the same with this bunch.
