Pink And Green Mystery Quilt

I am linking up today with "Finished For Friday" and "Sew And Tell" and "Lush Friday".



I just finished another online mystery quilt that was actually posted earlier in the year, can't even remember where! After setting aside all the fabrics from stash along with the pattern it slid down the list until it was pieced at Spring retreat and just now quilted and bound.
It has no home yet, I will add another item to my Etsy shop and our church is having a holiday boutique in November so I'll take all my "extras" to that! Need to make a few wall- hanging size too, I usually only do those for specific events.


The quilting is a freehand meandering vine with leaves and "curls" using the beautiful Superior "Rainbows" thread on top and Bottom Line in the bobbin.


The backing was pieced some time ago for another quilt but it didn't suit my fancy and I abandoned it in favor of another choice- nice to have it all ready to go because it worked out well for this quilt to make it reversible.


Another quilt done and off the list!

I can't wait to move back to California, so I can display this quilt - in all it's glory - the way it deserves to be displayed! In the meantime, I have it folded on the bed next to me, so I can reach out during the night and connect with 'our children'.
You will never, ever know just how much this quilt - and your friendship - means to me, Ros!
I love you dearly...
