Finished Magnolia Mystery Quilt

BAM. It's done, and none too soon, as it was a gift for my super awesome good friend L, and I am so excited that after working on it for A YEAR, I finally got around to finishing it and sending it along its way. Spoiler alert: she loved it!

This is the Magnolia Mystery Quilt from Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. This is the second mystery quilt that I've finished by Cheryl, and I LOVE them both. I'm a bit ashamed to tell you the first one STILL isn't completed, but it's waiting longingly for its time to shine. One of these days....

I kept it simple and straightforward with this one's quilting. Black stipple in the batik areas, and straight line quilting in a lime thread through the blocks. Woulda shoulda coulda gotten a picture of the back to show you the yum lime against the super awesome Grunge dot print, but I didn't. Lately, it's a struggle to remember my first name!

I so enjoyed making this quilt, and I am so pleased to know my friend loves it. She has been such an important influence on me, and I was thrilled at the idea of gifting her something that I made with my own two hands.

I'm going on seven years of quilting now, and there's something still so magical about that!


  1. Audrey, this is FANTASTIC!!!! That background fabric is to die for and your blocks all compliment it perfectly!! And lime thread? So clever and I can only imagine how amazing it looks on Grunge dot too!!! Your friend will surely love this!!

  2. How awesome to make something for K and have her love receiving it. There really is nothing better than infusing a project with love and giving it away, is there? OK, maybe there are a few great guilty pleasures (mmmm... chocolate), but that kind of generosity and giving is amazing.

  3. I absolutely love this! The quilting is fantastic and I just can't get how awesome that background fabric looks. This *might* be my favorite of the three mysteries I've done.


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