I finished the border, the quilting, the binding and the label on the Mystery Quilt! Yahoo!
The quilt now has a new name since it is no longer a mystery: Black and Blue Kaleidoscope. It is ready to wrap and give to _____ (I won’t say as he or she might read the blog and know what they are getting!).
The quilt was a paper piecing project presented by Carol Doak for her Yahoo Group. It was lots of fun! I completed the paper pieced top at the quilt retreat in October, but then had to ponder how I wanted to finish it. I finally decided to add the inside purple border and then the black. I machine quilted it – mostly stitch in the ditch although those ditches were pretty chunky at places where many, many points converged!
I have completely finished all the quilty gift projects I want to give for Christmas! Now it’s on to wrapping, more baking and maybe a bit of work on Quiltville’s Orca Bay Mystery Quilt too!
