Melodic Mystery Top Finish!

This is the first time I've done one of Cheryl's mysteries at Meadow Mist Designs.  Need I say I'm now a big fan?  

I talked my quilting buddy, Sharon, into joining me.  Every month we got on FaceTime and chatted as we got the clue done.  It was a great reason to get together.  And, we each got wonderful quilt tops done.  Mine won't become a quilt for a while as my long arm is being repaired.  Even when it comes back I have quite a few quilts with backings ready to be quilted. 

Here's a few pictures showing the quilt in process. (I can't believe I didn't take a picture of the fabrics before they were cut. Nor one of all the pieces cut. Sigh.) 

One of the cool things about doing this quilt is half the fabric came from my stash.  I bought the light magenta and a bit more of the background fabric. 

This top will be living in the to-be-quilted closet for a while.  Here's the note I've attached to it so I know what to buy when I get the backing fabric. 

I'm looking forward to the next Meadow Mist Mystery.  

Here are the parties I'm linking up with:

  4. That's a pretty one, Bonnie! I love the purple and green together. Sounds like fun to sew along with a friend on Facetime, too!

  5. Love your fabrics! So pretty. And oh so cool that most of this came from your stash! I hope your longarm is repaired quickly so this pretty little thing can get finished because I can't wait to see it. Thanks for sharing on my weekly show and tell, Wednesday Wait Loss.

  6. Very pretty! I haven’t participated in a mystery challenge in several years, but I usually enjoy them.
