Mystery Quilt Along

I'm participating in a row-by-row quilt along with one of my quilt groups--Upper Midwest Machine Quilters. We're mainly longarm quilters, some with a business, like me, and some who only quilt their own quilts. Plus, there are some domestic machine quilters in the group. We meet 4 times a year, in St. Louis Park, MN, at Just Sew Studio.

There are 6 of us working on each quilt, with several quilts circulating. We're to add a 9"-12" row of fabric and "Quilt as desired"--that classic, daunting phrase that means "figure it out yourself"!



I'm the 4th person working on Team 1. The first three rows are rather floral and garden themed, so I took my cue from them.



My quilting is influence by classes with Judi Madsen. She gave two days of classes to our UMMQ guild last year in October, 2015.



I love what the other quilters did--birds, butterflies, flowers. Great background filler on the pink row, also!



I'll get it in the mail to the next quilter. The last one to work on it will also bind it and bring the finished quilt to our October 8th meeting. Should be fun to see them all finished!!!

Grace and peace!!!
