Please forgive the terrible picture. I had to tack the quilt to the wall to photograph it and it was longer than the room height. I selected alternating blocks and set the mystery blocks on point. This will be my mother's Christmas present. It was made using the Curio collection by Moda. That light circle on the border near the bottom is a light reflection.
My iteration of "Worms and Jelly Rolls" is tentatively being called "Country Nights". The appliqué was done by machine but without fusible. I simply cut the shapes and sewed them down.
My background fabric looks white in the photo so I'm posting a photo of my fabric choices from the start. The strips were from a scrap bag and were only 36 to 38 inches long. I'm happy to say this project came strictly from stash on hand.
Here's my version...my husband is not very good at pretending he's a design wall, but he does try.
Here is my finished top
and a close up of the fabrics
Well, here it is. My first top since coming back from my 2 year hiatus. Not perfect (they never are, are they) but I like it. And I think my DGD1 will love it.
The pic is fuzzy... I'm going to try with another camera and hopefully repost.
A little closeup so you can see the border.

Here is my quilt. Had trouble getting far enough away from it to get it all in, finally cleared some floor space. I named it "Popsicles in Summer".
Here's my finished quilt top. I plan to use the yellow sashing fabric as the binding.
Yes! I'm done! I'll share more about it in the MQ V.
Ohhhhh! YESSSSSS! Finally! Maybe I just need to have a little more patience.Thank you Ms. Moommist. I tried it again and just walked away while it looked like it was doing nothing....and came back to this! WHOO HOOO!
This is not only my first ever mystery....it's my first ever completed top. Yup. I have a pile of UFO's in various stages of "started" or "done" depending on if you are a glass half full or half empty kinda person.
BOY....did I learn A LOT :o)
Just a disclaimer....it's not so busy looking in person.
First picture of the quilt hanging did not look so great on the post. Took another laying on the floor.
