Mystery #4


This is Lynn's Mystery quilt and she used beautiful beige and pink batik fabrics!  She asked for an edge to edge design in the centre and custom borders.  I did a large free hand swirl in the outer border to match the print on the fabric



I have been purchasing new pantos and was excited to use a new one on Lynn's quilt.  This panto is called Taro by Urban Elementz and I used King Tut thread. 


This weekend we bought some wicker furniture for my new veranda that Tim built onto my Shack last fall so I had a bit of fun taking pictures of Lynn's quilt in there.


When we put the set in the veranda I went into the Shack to look for a few quilts to lay on the chairs to add some colour.  I found these two quilts of mine that were just folded up on my shelf so they now have a new home.  Putting the quilts out here has made my decision to paint the door a new colour easier, I am getting tired of the green but didn't know what colour to go with until now.  I'll take pictures when it is painted!

  2. I especially like the straight lines you did in the inner border of Lynn's quilt. It really defines the two areas of the quilt.
