Meadow Mist Midnight Mystery Quilt Along Parts 1 and 2

Meadow Mist Designs is hosting a Midnight Mystery Quilt Along with monthly instructions being released from June 2015 through March 2016.  While there is an option to see the final design, I opted to happily play along and keep the final pattern a mystery.

In June, we received guidance on fabric selection and yardage needed for the final quilt which should measure 72" square.  Only 4 fabrics are required, and additional information is available for participants wishing to use up some scraps.  Below are my fabric selections featuring Kona solids (all found in my stash and I only had to purchase a few small amounts to meet the fabric requirements):

  • Fabric A-Chartreuse  
  • Fabric B-Breakers
  • Fabric C-Geranium
  • Fabric D-Charcoal

Bright color palette!!
In July we cut, cut and cut some more!  The instructions were super easy to follow and they maximized full use of the yardage with very little waste!
All my units cut and awaiting future instruction for piecing
August instructions just came out and involve making lots of flying geese units!  I hope to start these during my sew day tomorrow.

As we just got started, there's still time to join the monthly Midnight Mystery merriment!!
