It's a mystery quilt

This is Sharon's quilt; she made it as a Mystery Quilt at a local quilt shop.  When I asked about using colored thread she didn't sound very enthusiastic but I couldn't resist using some pink and green thread in addition to the dark grey I used for the feathers.  (It looks kind of blue in the pictures)  I hope she likes the result!

I love quilts with a black background even though it is hard to see what you're doing when quilting them. All that black really makes the colors pop! I used black batting on this quilt since both top and backing are black and Omni thread.


  1. Um, why is it a 'mystery' quilt?

  2. Lovely quilting! She will surely love it.
    Have a great day.
    Always, Queenie

  3. Jan, the colored thread was the perfect choice!! Wow, it created such a striking design element! You're a genius.

  4. This is gorgeous and your 3 thread color choices made this pop!
