I also finished our guilds mystery quilt. It's not due until August so I'm ahead of the game here too. I found some fabrics in my stash for the front and back! Love when that happens. The fabrics were actually from a kit that I got from a friendship group member that passed away a few years ago. I realized I wouldn't make her pattern so de-constructed her kit.
Only one of these was on my 2017 Goal list of quilts I wanted to finish this year. The Mystery Quilt was #11. So 5 of the 15 are done. Woo Hoo!
Also when my mom passed away my sisters and I went through all her needlework stuff. She crochet and knitted and cross stitch (and card/scrapping, and...okay - she was crafty) and she had this tulip table runner started. I decided to finish the bunch of florals she started and stop there. I made a pillow with it. Just in time for my spring decorating.
This past weekend was the local quilt show, Best of the Valley. I entered two quilts and ended up getting a third place ribbon on one. (The friendship group challenge - stack 'n whack quilt) Amazingly I didn't take any pictures. I got there just a couple hours before the show closed and had to docent the last two hours, and of course I had to do some shopping. It's a great show, so if you are ever in the central valley of California in April, please make a point to come to the show. I always love to read what the judges say too. Some things I agree with. One of the comments was that I should have quilted more in the applique of the Coxcomb quilt. I had thought about that when quilting it but that was my design choice to not quilt more in it. Judging is subjective and I understand that and don't get too worked up over their choice of winners.
Thanks for looking. I have a lot of little projects to work on. Well, the Quilt Show block of the month is a biggie - that should take a while with a lot of curved flying geese paper piecing blocks.
