  • Mystery Quilt 10

    I am going to call this quilt "Confetti Stars" because it was made using all dotted fabrics (the accent colors are many different pin dots). I really enjoyed this MQ 10 and will probably use this design again! Sheila Dean

    I've never had any trouble with batting and open seams. I do make the stitch length a tad shorter so it is a stronger seam.

    This is going against the Quilt Police rules, but I iron a lot of seams open! All my HST's are ironed open because they tend to produce too much bulk, and you can't nest the seams together anyway, and I usually have open seams when putting blocks and rows together; however, 4-patch units are best ironed towards the dark because they are perfect

    Brigit-Carol, The setting triangles don't have to be tan! It would look pretty with your accent color of blue being the setting triangles, then, a narrow 2" or so border of the tan, and finish it with a wider border of your dark color. Bind it all with either the tan or the blue. Gorgeous!

    Shelly, One possible solution would be to put a new needle in? I sometimes go for weeks and numerous projects before changing the needle (I know, I know...baaad quilter!), then am amazed with how smoothly my machine runs with a fresh needle! lol

    [quote user="Debbie"] First, I thought I did wrong on this step but I think I'm ok. Really liking this MQ and how it is turning out. [/quote] Debbie, The yellow fabric in your star block is used as the accent fabric, but the yellow is used as the #2 fabric in the Step #5 block, and the white is now the accent fabric. This is different

    Didash, Don't stop now! I also went back and looked at your star block and I agree with Shelly...it will be very pretty! Even if you end up not liking the finished quilt, someone in your world will like it...GUARANTEED! Besides, we are close to the finish line and all the hard work is done, just the easy stuff is left....I hope....lol

    Here is my polka dotty stars. Our quilt recipe called for 14 strips of accent fabric, so I dug in my stash for 14 different pindots, then randomly tossed them all over the stars. I am really liking this quilt!
