It was a nice weekend for stitching, it was too hot to do much of anything else. I finally finished binding the Meadow Misty Mystery quilt.

I love the crinkly texture the quilting adds.
Trudy quilted big lazy flowers across the entire quilt. I'm not going to show off the backing. It's one of my "ugly" fabrics, but it was in the stash and was the right size. The binding is the same light blue as the outer border. I did have a bit of fun with the label.
The "It's a Mystery" name comes from My Guy's repeated questions about this quilt, it's not one of his favorites. My pat answer to him about anything concerning this quilt pretty much became "it's a mystery". So the name stuck. Drama Teen asked if I was willing to donate this one to a charity auction her BFF mother's is in charge of. That's likely where this one is going.
This is finish number 5 for 2017. It doesn't affect my UFO count because it's less than a year old. That makes it a WIP. But finishing WIPs before they become UFOs is a good thing. The next mystery over at Meadow Mist Designs has started, but this month's clue was about selecting fabric. I don't count something as "started" until I start cutting the fabric. So last year's mystery is finished before this year's gets started. That's always a good feeling.
It's a Mystery is the first finish from my third quarter list for the 2017 Finish Along. So I'll be linking up there once we get to September. Linking up this week with:
