Finished Mystery Quilt!



I'm thrilled to be able to say that I finished quilting the mystery quilt! The show is about 4 weeks away. I still have to sew down the binding and add a hanging sleeve. I think I'll have plenty of time for that. This first picture is the finished quilt without binding.


I've added the binding in this picture. It's a little difficult to see since the color of the border is very similar. I tried a new method of joining the binding ends. You can read about that here. It's very similar to the method I blogged about awhile ago. I feel this method is a little bit easier.


Here's a close up of the machine quilting. I feel my quilting improved over the course of finishing up this quilt. I'm much better at swirls, although not perfect at all! I definitely feel more comfortable with these shapes. Time to relax and sew down that binding!
