I’m very excited (and a little nervous) to be participating in Meadow Mist Designs’ Midnight Mystery Quilt-a-long. There are some very accomplished quilters who are also participating. I’ve become moderately proficient with squares and rectangles, but I’ve only dabbled in triangles and have never cut/sewn any half square triangles, though they’ve been on my quilting radar for the last couple months. I’ll get a chance to try my hand at them as well as flying geese in this project. I know I will learn a lot from participating in this quilt-a-long, and it will be fun to see all the works-in-progress and finished quilts created by other quilter participants. Feel free to follow along at #MidnightMysteryQuilt on Instagram.
In early June, participants in this quilt-a-along were given yardage requirements for four different fabrics with the provision that Fabric A will be next to Fabric B; Fabric B will be next to Fabric C; and Fabric C will be next to Fabric D. There needs to be enough contrast and distinction between the fabrics that will be next to each other. Below are the fabrics I have chosen:
The fabrics A-D are arranged top to bottom. Fabric A, Petal in Charcoal, is from Alison Glass’ Handcrafted line, and Fabric C, Penny in Peacock is also from this line. Fabric B is Laura Gunn’s Painters Canvas in Peach, and Fabric D is Alison Glass’ Text in Ocean.
Earlier this month we were given cutting instructions for all the fabrics, but I just started cutting my fabrics today. I have part of both Fabric A and Fabric B cut. I hope to have all my fabric cut by August 5th because we get our first set of sewing instructions on August 6th. I can’t wait!!!
