JCQG Mystery Quilt 2022

Mystery quilts, as you know, take me out of my comfort zone. The JCQG Mystery Quilt 2022 tested me!  The Johnson County Quilt Guild always has the best Mystery Quilt projects thanks to Donna and Anna.

Mystery Quilt 2022 Reveal

Blocks, Fabrics and Assembly

The fabrics I chose for this quilt made me very happy. Up until this year, I tended to keep it neutral. For this year’s mystery, I wanted to go bold. This is actually a bit more of my style as well. Below are some block examples showing the fabrics.

Jacob’s ladder blocks became a fast favorite. I also really enjoyed using the supplied templates to make the orange flower elements.
 
As you know, by eliminating the applique vines, I lost a color but I am not unhappy about that. The colors here are enough.
 
As the blocks started to come together, I got very excited to see how it turned out. 
 

Long-Arm Custom Quilting

Instead of applique, I decided to quilt large, roaming feathers in the white spaces. I also added texture to the orange fans as well as continuous curves to the Jacob’s Ladder blocks.

All the quilting was hand-guided, I chose to do any computerized designs for this one. It was great fun.
 
I also had the opportunity to share this quilt with the Common Threads Quilt Guild prior to the actual reveal.

I was so happy to share it ahead of time with the great folks in Gainsville TX!
 
As with any Mystery Quilt, there are many people participating in our guild. Below is the quilt created by my friend, Margret Lewis. Isn’t it lovely?
