Mystery Quilts - Seasons by snippet
I have never done a mystery quilt before. My sister found this one online and it's four for the price of one quilt AND it's only a weekend too. So we signed up and got to choosing our fabrics from the suggestions given.
- SPRING - this one really turned out terrible. I love the fabric, but it isn't suited for this quilt. I should have used a solid for the background so you could see the flowers instead of seeing pink circles. I didn't want all solids for my quilts, so this was the result :(
- SUMMER - better choices this time. You can actually see the butterflies.
- AUTUMN - this quilt was made from batiks I found online on sale. I like this one.
- WINTER - If if weren't for the solid background of this quilt, it could have turn out terrible, but it didn't. I like this one too.
It took us several weekends to finish the tops for all the quilts. I was quite tired of the pattern by the last quilt. I don't think I will ever do another mystery quilt again.
