Well after keeping up with the 12 months of instructions I can’t believe I stuck with it and finished the Just Takes Two Mystery Project. I had a love/hate relationship with this project all year long but I’m glad Lori kept encouraging me to keep going. It was the perfect project to use up my hand dyed samples and I focused mainly on my fabrics with bold and bright colours. It’s definitely a bright quilt and not my usual style but that's what I love about quilting, trying new thing!!
Our guild had a UFO day on Saturday and I was able to borrow a design wall that just fit the quilt’s wide but not long enough for the length so it spilled over onto the floor. It was good to get some input from other members as I moved the blocks around. The original plan for this project was a red and white quilt so when I laid out my blocks there were a few areas where the same colours were side by side….and you can’t have that so there was some shuffling that needed to be done! :)
Its a good size quilt at about 74” x 96” and I added a 2 1/2” white border to secure all the blocks around the outer edge . They gave a few border options but I didn't think it needed any more piecing.
My favorite block in the whole quilt is the light blue feathers star, I love that block.
