Another UFO off my list. (pic1)

toolgrannyJuly 18, 2012

I dragged this quilt top out of the drawer and quilted it up to give to my son for his office sofa. It was a mystery quilt done at a guild retreat several years ago and I liked the colors so much.

It's the first mystery quilt I've ever done that turned out well. I usually just put them away disgusted, and now won't do mysteries anymore without seeing a picture of the finished idea so I can choose better fabric. But this one surprised me.

This will be a nap quilt for a child waiting for Dad to get done with his work.

I like the colors also - perfect for a nap quilt! I really like your rounded edges on the binding!

"This will be a nap quilt for a child waiting for Dad to get done with his work." Boy oh boy - have I been there! Not easy for either one!

I am sure they both will enjoy the quilt.

Great quilt.
I looked at your other post with the pic showing the closeup of the quilting.
I am with the others...I love the swoops.
I also like the dotted fabrics you used.
I have always liked small-dot fabrics. I think your fabrics give the quilt a comfortable, cozy feel.
TFS.

I'm with you on the mystery quilts, but this one did turn out good. Did you go with the colors they suggested? It's for sure a cozy nap quilt! Quilting is great!

It's great! Nice "masculine" look to it. I also like the rounded corners.

Very handsome quilt and lovely quilting. I hadn't noticed the rounded corners until Donna mentioned them, but I really like them too. Nice job. Lois

I am the same about mysteries and this one turned out gorgeous! I think it is perfect for a lawyer's office sofa.

I have never done a mystery quilt because I like to know the results as well but this one turned out great. Interesting pattern and the fabric choices are perfect. Would like to know more about the rounded corners they look like fun way to go. Very nice. TFS

That is really striking. The dots are so subtle the fabrics almost read as solids. Very nice indeed.

This is a really cheerful quilt. Primary colors with white always looks fresh and upbeat. Your quilting is beautiful. Congrats on finishing a UFO.
Thanks for showing.
