From time to time this year I have mentioned a Fabulous Friday mystery project that I was leading through my local quilt shop, The Country Yard. I realised recently that I hadn't shared the final quilt so thought it time for a catch up :-)
The ladies participating were given a piece of the proposed border fabric and a couple of Fat Eights to get them started on a colour scheme (the cost to join included the balance of the border fabric).Each meeting they were given a set of instructions for a block ... they had to show this block before they could get the next set of instructions.
Being a complete mystery I tried to keep them on their toes and there was plenty of guessing going on as to what the finished quilt would look like.
After making the larger block below, many were sure it was going to be a medallion style quilt —
Finally however, reveal day came and I gave out the finishing instructions. I had my quilt top ready to share —

A month later we had a Show and Tell day - how exciting to see all the wonderful creations! —
I think we had about 11 completed quilt tops turn up for this. So much fun for every one to see what fabrics others had used and how different they all looked.
My photos don't really do the ladies' work justice; some had added extra embroidery or fussy cutting. Two had quilted theirs' already in a Quilt-As -You -Go manner. They all looked fantastic!
The one below has just been finished. This sewer opted not to use the supplied border fabric.

*This link* takes you to the gallery which shows some of the completed blocks. We haven't had a chance to upload the individual quilt top photos yet.
'til next time,
