Finished Midnight Mystery Quilt -- Dragonflies at Midnight

It's finally finished!

I got my Midnight Mystery quilt back from the long-arm quilter the last time my parents came to visit and just finished the binding.


I had these fabrics in my stash for a few years and this mystery quilt was the perfect project for them! The large-scale dragonfly print shines and the navy background sets everything off well.


I used the same teal fabric from the blocks as the binding. The backing is actually a navy sheet that is the same color navy as the Kona on the front. It makes the quilt oh-so-cuddly!

The quilting is lines of quilting with four petaled flowers or flourishes (note quite a four-leaf clover, though). It is a true beauty!


This ends up at 72 inches square and will be a great addition to my collection of throws. If you love the pattern, Cheryl still has it available on her blog!

  6. Your quilt is beautiful! Mine is sandwiched and ready to be quilted. I like the quilting motif-is each one done individually? Or are they connected?

  9. Hi I just love your finished quilt, especially the dark background. I popped over to get the pattern and since I'm late and I'll follow the instructions as if it's a mystery, can you tell me what colors correspond with the cutting letters. Cheryl's fabric A is in pink, so if you can tell me what your colors are in her numbers that will help me to choose my fabrics!!! Thank you!

  11. Well I had to go back and find your quilt--it's lovely Alison. I saw it somewhere...ha probably on my feed! Interesting that you picked the same fabric for your binding as I did for mine, the one the stars float on! Can never go wrong with blue and green IMHO.
