Myrtle

I have been a bit amazed by how quickly some of these UFOs have come together….and here’s another one.

I started Myrtle, the Mystery Quilt, in early 2011. It was a mystery quilt by Sheila of Bluepatch Quilting.  I did not finish all the blocks but the parts I did complete were so much fun. Sheila is a talented quilter and very good at writing tutorials. Seems I recall rumor of Sheila turning the mystery quilt into a pattern but I can’t find it anywhere (if anyone knows where it is, please tell me so I can link to it). UPDATE: Sheila indeed is selling her pattern in her Etsy Shop!

The quilting on this is something I have been wanting to try for quite some time. This quilt has some serious saggy bits so it was quite the struggle to quilt. My larger circle arcs are a bit scary up close but babies don’t look at that sort of thing!!

I did machine binding again but I think I was (a) too tired – it was late and I wanted to get her in the wash and (b) I rushed a bit because I was tired and wanted to finish. BUT I am still pleased with the binding.

Oh and I actually got a decent roll picture so I will include one this time:
