We are always learning something, right? Well... a few years ago I did a "Mystery Quilt" class with a couple of friends. They'd done a few and "loved" them. So I thought - just for fun - why not? Well I did have a fun day with my friends - but never liked the quilt top I ended up with. It is just not a quilt that I would choose to make. I used fabric that I actually do like - some Laurel Burch horses in a quilt that - well, I don't like so much.
I learned that I absolutely need to know what I'm going to be making. No more "mystery quilts" for me!
As a result of me not liking it so much it's been languishing at the bottom of my "to be quilted" box for a few years. I figured it was time to get the darn thing finished. I present to you - my "Mystery Quilt".
My friend Veronica belongs to a group who have sponsored one Syrian family and integrated them into Canadian life very successfully. I gave them a quilt to raffle as a kick off to their fund raising for that endeavor a couple of years ago. Veronica called me a couple of weeks ago to ask if I would have another quilt as they have decided to do it again. So I will give her this one and hope they have the same success this time.
