Since we're at the halfway point in Meadow Mist Design's Midnight Mystery Quilt Along, I thought it would be a good time to share an update on my progress so far.
The concept of a mystery quilt is both liberating and terrifying for me. As a bit of a control freak, not knowing how this will turn out is a touch unsettling. But, I'm actually enjoying seeing this quilt slowly come together and am so intrigued to see how it will turn out.
June and July were all about fabric selection and cutting. In keeping with the midnight theme, I chose a twilight-ish palette, with Essex Linen in Flax, Kona Berry along with an assortment of similarly hued prints, some low volume fabrics with a splash of metalllic, and Kona Coal.
In August, we created Flying Geese units...
In September, we created Square-in-a-Square blocks...
And this month, the instructions called for some jumbo Courthouse Steps blocks.
Pretty fun, eh?
If you're interested in joining in with the quilt along, it's not too late to catch up. You can find all the instructions, and sign up for the monthly updates right here.
Linking up with Freshly Pieced for WIP Wednesday!
