Mystery Quilt: Good Fortune

Time to share my Good Fortune Mystery Quilt progress. I decided to pull the backing fabric from my collection of fabrics, too. 
I was only a little surprised I found enough pieces in the right colors. I grabbed all the coordinating colors, laid them out, measured and was fairly certain I could come up with enough backing.
While I assembled the other pieces of the backing, I stitched out the label onto one section. 
Due to a cutting error, I needed to make the pink section a little wider. I pulled out those two leftover blocks and added them in. I think this is great!
Since just about everything was closed on Sunday due to weather I loaded up the quilt with my mashed up backing and got quilting. I used a big flower design as an all-over motif. The piecing says enough without getting fancy with the quilting.
It took most of the day, but it's quilting and trimmed. All that remains is binding. Maybe I'll be able to squeeze that in sometime this week. I'm super happy with the Mystery Quilt.

  1. Just absolutely gorgeous and I love what you changed on your border to have the pink triangles on the outside. I might have to copy that once I'm finally able to get back to my quilt. Excited to see what color you choose to bind this one.

  2. Changing the half-square triangle border and reversing the outside border makes the quilt look very different. I like it all.
