The Other Mystery

Most of the snow had melted by yesterday afternoon. It was pretty while it lasted, but I certainly don't miss the bone chilling cold that came with the snow.  It was still mostly dreary weather this weekend, though we never got the rain that was forecast.  It was still good sewing room weather.  

Grassy Creek is still my focus project, but it's been the subject of my design wall post for the last couple of weeks.  So time to switch it up and highlight the other mystery quilt that's taken over the smaller design wall. 

Morewood Mystery by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs

Block B is still being assembled at the sewing machines.  I'm just one short of being half way done with that part of the mystery.  Morewood won't take as long to stitch together as Grassy Greek, the blocks are much bigger and there is no sashing.  So I'm hopeful of having two quilts ready for quilting before the end of first quarter.  

Linking up with Monday Making and Design Wall Monday.  Happy stitching this week.

Morewood Mystery is looking really good. Once again, you picked great fabrics that work really well. Did you ask for hints before hand or just picked and hoped? Hopefully snow is over for the season here and at your house but I won't hold my breath.

I like this quilt more every time I see it. Having two big quilts finish together is a big accomplishment and great for your PhD list too.

Not only is our "snow" gone, but it is so warm again that it's hard to believe last week was freezing.

Those Morewood blocks look amazing just laid out in the diagonals. But I'm looking forward to seeing the real layout.

That is looking so pretty Kate! Yeah I'm so over winter too. It's been hanging on much too long this year.
