Mystery Quilt Along Reveal

Happy Saturday!

We’ve spent the last month traveling to visit with family and friends.  It’s great to be home again and even better to be sewing again.  Taking a small break has been a great motivator for me to start finishing up projects 🙂

I participated in my first QAL this past quarter.  It was a mystery quilt along hosted by Cindy at In a Stitch Quilting and Tracy with It’s a T-Sweets Day. I loved their QAL concept of using a focus fabric to create any project of your choosing.

The focus fabric for this past quarter  was “Tea Flowers” from the English Tea collections by Connecting Threads. It is a vintage small floral print but the tomato red color made me think of Christmas.

Camille Roskelley’s Swoon block has been on my to do list for quite awhile. This QAL was the perfect opportunity to make it happen!

My swoon table topper/wall hanging measure 30 x 30 inches. Although the front doesn’t scream Christmas – my backing certainly does!
