Midnight Mystery Quilt Finished Top

This morning, I left the warm comfort of my house for about two seconds to venture into my background and the 11 degree windy cold to snap a couple of photos. (At 72" square, I did not have a suitable spot to take pictures inside.)

This is the Midnight Mystery Quilt from Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs. And I love love love it.

In fact, I love it so much that I'm considering adding some borders to make a queen-size version for my bed.

But I'm thinking of adding long strips to the sides, three, in fact. This is my proposed color scheme. But perhaps I should cut the navy and add the lime in instead? Thoughts? I have enough of the silver for the first or second border, but not the third, and I kinda like the pop of pink against the edge.

I am so thankful to Cheryl for offering this sweet mystery quilt challenge. I had so much fun! And after a long while of thinking I'd never do a mystery quilt, I'm thrilled I gave it a go and it turned out so nicely! I'm game for another, certainly!


  1. Do you have enough fabric to go Pink, silver, lime, navy? It looks awesome!

  2. Lovely!! You could do lime as the binding. Or do scrappy borders to get it in the order you want.

  3. So pretty, pink would be pretty.

  4. Love!

    The Tula background is amazing! Love the border prints you're trialling are the metallic ones too ;)

  5. Love the colors! I'm with Sarah, a (scrappy?) lime binding would make that last navy border pop


Thanks for leaving me a note! You've made my day!
