|Magnolia Mystery by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs|
The Magnolia Mystery quilt from the 2017 mystery program at Meadow Mist Designs is finally all finished. It's definitely a very bright quilt, but I like it. Purple and yellow is one of my favorite color combinations. Though the purple is really closer to red-violet than it is a true purple. Thankfully you can see the true color in these photos. The violet always photographed as almost black when this project was on the design wall.
The background fabric is a Connecting Threads sale acquisition that's been in the stash for a few years. There was enough of it to back the quilt as well.
The yellow flowers in the backing reminded me of all the bright yellow wild flowers we have in Oklahoma in the summer, hence the slight change in quilt name on the label.
Other than the background, the rest of the fabrics in this project are left over from other projects. So the green ended up as the binding because there wasn't enough left of any of the the other fabrics.
My Magnolia Mystery quilt is lap sized. I love the bright colors and that floral print background (see that violet photographed as black in this image). Summer Magnolias is finish number three for 2018. This project wasn't on the UFO list, as it wasn't a year old yet, so my UFO numbers stay unchanged. That's OK, it's always nice to keep a project off the UFO list. It is on my list for the third quarter of the 2018 Finish Along, so I'll be linking up there come October. For now, I'm linking up with the usual Monday linky parties:
