Meadow Mystery--I'm caught up!

I love, love, love the OMG goal-setting link up hosted by Heidi of Red Letter Quilts.  This month, I made piecing my goal.  Primary goal was to finish cutting and do all the September piecing for the Meadow Mystery hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.  I was successful!

I am using batiks for this mystery, and 2 of the "fabrics" are scrappy.  I am a little concerned about the lack of contrast, but I will wait to decide if I need to make a change until I get further into the mystery. Each of these four blocks has a different purple fabric.  The bright green mottled is the same.  The thing about batiks, though, is even when a big piece is obviously a certain color, you lose that definition when you cut it into smaller pieces. But like I said, I'll wait and sew.

There were also some HSTs with the green and the background fabric.  They will presumably be used later in the mystery.  I don't have a picture of those, but they are pieced and trimmed and ready for the next step.

I also hoped to get some piecing done on my niece's quilt and to make some more butterflies for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, as I am desperately behind on that. I got 2 more double rows made for my niece's I Spy quilt, bringing me to 5 completed of the 8 needed.  And I finished 1 butterfly.

This is the picture I took to keep track of the layout; I will have an official picture once I finish the second green butterfly.

All in all, lots of piecing this month, and I made my goal of staying caught up with the Meadow Mystery.  Linking up with Heidi.


  1. Beautiful fabrics for the the mystery quilt and Yay! for keeping up! Nice butterfly too!

  2. I love how the fabrics seem to shimmer. Looking forward to seeing more of this mystery as it is revealed!

  3. Your blocks look great and hooray for being caught up!
