Guild Mystery Quilt finished

Our guild has an annual mystery quilt where we get clues each month and at the end of each guild year, we all reveal our quilts.  We got the final clue in April and I was able to get my quilt top done since I tried to keep up each month.  It's a dark quilt - darker than I like but I love the border fabric.

Here's a closer look at the quilt.  I spent a lot of time quilting it and you can hardly see it.

We don't actually reveal until August, but I couldn't wait to share.  Everyone has all the clues so it really won't be a mystery to anyone anymore.  And I'm sure not too many of our guild members follow my blog.  The one's that do I know didn't do the mystery this year.

I was also able to quilt a charity quilt for the guild.  I normally grab a kit each month and practice quilting on it before I start my own quilting.  It's a win-win.

Sometimes the lady in charge of the committee will have one spray basted for me.  But this time I had to do it myself.

Thanks for looking.  I'm currently working on quilting my Sew Kind of Wonderful Metro Rings quilt from the class I took at Road 2 California this year.  After that one I have my Coxcomb Quilt ready to go.

Thanks for looking.

The colors are so different between the two photos. I'm assuming the close up is closer to the actual fabric. I've found that sometimes the quilting shows up bettter when the quilt is flat on a bed rather than on the wall. The shadows are more prominent. Congratualtions on another great finish!

Glad you showed the detail because I like those colors better. I really like how you "floated" the blocks in the border fabric.
