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.
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.
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.
