|Midnight Mystery Quilt (Midnight Tulips) From Meadow Mist Designs|
This project was started last July as part of the Midnight Mystery Quilt Along sponsored by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. I wanted to get this quilt finished because Cheryl has a new quilt along this year. There's just less guilt about starting the next mystery if you finished the last one. Especially when your UFO count is 17. I'm really happy with the finished project. It has a bit more modern vibe than what I typically make, but it's good to branch out sometimes. This quilt is going to be a Christmas gift for Drama Teen's confirmation sponsor. She's a long time friend of the family and remains one of DT's favorite teachers.
This quilt has been a bear to photograph. For some reason the red ends up as a ghastly shade of orange if I don't color correct in Photoshop Elements. It was also really hard to get a decent photo of Trudy's wonderful quilting.
I really like the red petals she quilted in the center of each star, they are still hard to see in this photo. The quilting in the black background is a simple meander. Showing the back won't help, it' a pretty busy print. My justification for starting this mystery was that I'd use up some of my older stash. So the back was something I had on hand.
Midnight Tulips is just my second finish for 2016. The plan for the year is to finish 8 projects. It's August, so finishing that many isn't likely. But Allietare just needs binding, Poinsettias is almost a finished flimsy and Zombies in Paris is close behind. So it's likely I'll get halfway to my goal this year.
