In Progress – New Years Day Mystery Quilt

I was hoping to get this quilt top done on New Years Day, but I caught a cold and didn’t feel like sewing it all together. 🙂 Since then, I’ve finished my blocks and decided on my layout. Here’s a picture of one of my blocks:

I’m doing my layout a little differently than shown on the pattern because I didn’t want so much of the grey background. Here’s my layout:

I got the rows sewed together this afternoon, so now all I need to do is sew the rows into a top and add the borders. I’m hoping to work on that tomorrow afternoon after we get done with homeschool. I love it so far! 🙂 ❤

In Progress – New Years Day Mystery Quilt

I’ve done a couple of the mystery quilts by Heather Spence in the past and loved how they came out, so I’m doing her New Years Day Mystery Quilt! The quilt requires a focus fabric, a background and four coordinating fabrics. I chose my focus and coordinating fabrics from the Hazel line by Allison Harris for Windham Fabrics. Here are the ones I chose:

Such yumminess! I just love these colors and patterns! After I bought the pattern, I received the fabric requirements (obviously) and the instructions for cutting the first step. It was all strips of varying widths. I got all of that done (except the background, which I ordered late and haven’t received yet. I’m a dummy!) Here are my lovely strips:

The rest of the pattern will be released hourly on New Years Day, so I can’t wait to get started! Meanwhile, I have another cute little project up my sleeve that I will post about in a few minutes. It’s always feast or famine with posts around here! 😀
