In 2014 I started making a Mystery Quilt from clues given in the four issues of 'The Quilter' that year. You can read about it here although I don't seem to have blogged about it very much. However it did get a mention here a few weeks ago when I layered it up for quilting.
Having decided on a simple wiggly line for the quilting it went very quickly and I soon had a finish - but for some reason it has taken me until now to get it photographed!
So finally, here it is.
The fabrics are all hand dyed and are mostly recycled cotton and linen clothing with some Egyptian cotton sheeting. The curved section is hand pieced, the rest is machine pieced.
This was a budget production using mostly fabrics that I had already in my stash. The border was dyed to work in with the rest of the colours. Sticking with the theme I bought a cheap cotton sheet from the supermarket and dyed it ultramarine for the back.
Being cheap meant that it was quite soft after washing so I starched it to get it to behave during quilting.
A few close ups of the blocks.
And of the quilting.
Great to have another project ticked off my list.
