I took a couple of days off to rebuild my design wall. I needed it bigger for this behemoth. Here is the new wall (I know the lines aren't exactly straight, but they work for me!) and the quilt as of today

Hopefully I will be posting pictures of the finished quilt soon

Still debating adding a Kaffe border that would mimic the color wash effect in the quilt. This was a lot of fun

Here’s my quilt label for my Mystery Quilt. I struggled the whole way but can honestly say it has been an exciting challenge. Karen Bodeen, from smoky Yakima, WA.

I agree that you should pre-wash your fabric. When dry, starch and iron before cutting.
On another note, if you are looking for Kaffe fabrics or like in my case, polka dots, I recommend
lyonquilting.com in Colorado. 303-823-6067.
They are featured in this month’s Quilt Sampler.

I’m not finished with mine and I thought it needed something more. Hence the polka dots. Any suggestions are welcomed.
Thanks,
Mary

I went to visist and the url is lyonsquilting.com

PennyLC...I really like your quilt. I also have a Panasonic cordless iron and love it. I think my all-time favourite iron is a Reliable but mine quit and they are so expensive.

PennyLC,
Nice quilt! I like your color choices and layout design. And totally agree with having the tools to get the job done! I loved my Rowenta until I purchased my Panasonic cordless from
the TQS store.

My Kaffe quilt top is waiting to be custom Quilted Alex but I wanted to thank you for this creative experience. My passion is appliqué so although I have been quilting for many years I tend to avoid machine piecing. I learned so much Alex. I had a single hole throat plate but never used it, finally feel like I am better with my quarter inch seams, have started a solids stash which I usually avoid. Who knew I would prefer glue over pins. I now own a cordless Panasonic and what a difference with my new wool mat. Looking forward to learning more with the baskets. Thanks again.

I finished the quilt top today and I am happy with it. This mystery was a wonderful adventure and I am looking forward to the basket sew-along. Now that we are back in school in person and I am back at work, I cannot watch live but I catch up in the evening.

I agree with Helen. Washing doesn't take that long. I've recently had red fabrics from quality manufacturers bleed, even after washing. I've got to washing reds until they stop bleeding - some took 3 passes. But better than having a finished quilt spoiled.
