Quilting and Stuff by Knitnoid

What’s On My Design Wall


Today I have a finish.  This is the 2006 Retreat Mystery Quilt. Well, not really.  I think after step #4 said cut 306 HST I threw my hands up and said the weekend simply wasn’t long enough.

This is what I did with some of the parts and pieces — that is the outer blocks.  The center medallion and tiny squares I made about the same time as the fabric is the same.

I’m calling this quilt “It’s A Mystery!”.  It measures approximately 41″ square.  I quilted it on a Nolting at  Quilted Memories.  The top thread is King Tut “Sands of Time”.  The bobbin thread is Bottom Line in a dark red/maroon.   I used Warm and Natural batting.

Here’s a bit of a close up of the quilting. Click on the picture for a larger image.


I’m linking up today for Design Wall Monday over at Patchwork Times.

4 Thoughts on “What’s On My Design Wall

  1. What a fabulous quilt. I love the scrappiness.

  2. really pretty and I like the star in the center. You did a nice job quilting it too. I have should try using bottom line, I hear good things about it. I stick with So Fine in my long arm. I haven’t had luck with anything else.

  3. This was a great use of your blocks. I did that once with some leftover blocks, that I really didn’t like, and it turned into one of the nicest quilts I have made. It looks like you did the same.

  4. Nice to have a finish on the first DWM of the New Year. The one would have been fun to Test for you. Any thing new to test this year?? Let me know, I might have spare time to play…
