Magnolia Mystery Quilt {Finished Top}

After thinking about the quilt some more and listening to your feedback on my post last week, I decided to go ahead and add sashing to my Magnolia mystery quilt.

Since all of the piecing within the quilt is done with 2.5" strips and squares, I thought it would be most cohesive to have 2.5" sashings. Putting together the top with sashings, cornerstones, and setting triangles was actually a quick process!

With these modifications, my quilt measured 45 inches across and 70 inches long. I cut 7.5 inch strips for the sides of the quilt and don't plan to add anything else to the top or bottom.

Now my quilt is finished and I need to start plotting what to use for backing! I already know that I want to bind this in aqua.

I don't think I'll be quilting this before the deadline to submit quilts and tops for the final quilt parade, but I'm glad to shift this into the "finished top" category!

Ps. We now have a Honey, Bunny, and Doll FACEBOOK GROUP! Join in to see an early preview of our upcoming quilt along!

  1. Wow it's so pretty! I love that graphite background, and aqua for the binding sounds lovely. I can't wait to see it done!

  2. Lovely blocks and a very nice layout.

  3. Great choice on the sashing and cornerstones!! Look fabulous...and I can't wait to see the quilting you do on the negative space! This is going to be a beautiful quilt and the aqua binding will really set it off.

  4. This is lovely! It looks just right with the sashing and cornerstones :)

  5. Wait! You're actually going to bind around all those extra dangly bits? That seems ambitious! I look forward to seeing how you pull it off. I love the colour combination too!

  6. The sashing worked out nicely. Congrats on getting this to the finished flimsy stage!

  7. I love those colours together! The sashing looks great.

  8. It came together beautifully. Congratulations on making the decision and getting it sewn together. :)
