Quilt Design, Quilt Fabric, Quilt Retreat, Strip Piecing

Mystery Quilt

On our annual quilting retreat last week, I decided to make the table topper mystery quilt.  I should know better.  I really like to put a project on my design wall as it progress, sometimes making changes to the fabric I’ve chosen.

At the retreat, I used a focus fabric that was directional – mistake.  When I started to put the project together it was a mess.  So I stopped what I was doing, came home and re-cut using a new focus fabric.  Everything is strip pieced so it goes together quite easily.

I liked the result so much that I ended up making two! Holiday table topper 001I think that the second table topper will be one of my pieces in the craft boutique at our guild’s quilt show next year.

Lesson learned.

There is always time to quilt!
