… Except it’s not a mystery any longer! :) Friends, it’s been so fun sewing along with this past summer!! I hope for those who have followed this sew-along program at a quilt shop, you have made great friends…. like this group from Nimble Thimble Quilt Shop in California! Remember to support your local quilt shops whenever possible! Linda noted, “Our group so enjoyed not only the quilt, but the experience of meeting once a week for coffee/donuts and a really good chat. It is especially fulfilling when a group clicks and you can appreciate the old fashioned companionship that is synonymous with quilting.” I was told this group of ladies had a dinner together for the finishing portion of the quilt – how absolutely SWEET! [By the way, feel free to contact Nimble Thimble and Rossville Quilts (Indiana) for kits — you can STILL make this quilt! :o)]
Looking back, we started with a jelly roll back in July…
After seam upon seam, the mystery became a reality…
Thank you to some of you who sent in pictures of your completed quilt top to enter the Completion Celebration Giveaway!!! Well done, EVERYONE! Notice some of the creative ways you can use up the scraps. You can certainly sew up four-patch blocks for a smaller quilt or matching pillows!
And I am happy to announce the winner of the Completion Celebration Giveaway… it is DEBRA (selected by Random Generator). Congratulations to Debra – an email is sent asking for your mailing address. Thank you all, for playing along!!!
And here is MY own quilt — quilted and bound!!!
In so many ways, I feel like my own life is a mystery quilt in progress with God being the quilt designer. I am confident in the end the quilt will be completed (Philippians 1:6), and all I can do is to follow each and every step the Great Designer has laid out for me — day by day, moment by moment.
THANK YOU all, for a fun sewing summer. Maybe (just maybe), we will meet again in another mystery sew-along in the future! :)
