Summer finish and start: Mystery Quilt

I´m finally finishing my Mystery Quilt with the binding - I am in love with the quilting, done by Jana Jandejskova from Bellus in Prague. She did a perfect job longarm-quilting it, turning it into one big and very warming quilt to crawl under at night.

Well, if you think you don´t need a warm quilt in summer: believe me, the temperatures right now in the evening push me under a quilt and when the quilt has bright and lovely summer colors, what´s more to say?

I used such colors for the "Paint Drips Quilt", designed by Angela Pingel, shown in the book "A Quilter´s Mixology". It´s the second quilt I made from that book and I certainly intend to do more as once I got the hang of curved sewing it really is great fun to do. The quilt was sent to Jana in Prague to be quilted.

And I am so happy that another Mystery Quilt-Along has started by Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs: 

Only the fabric selection has been done yet, here´s mine - so there is still plenty of time to join in! Cutting instructions will be posted on August 4th.

My fabrics are leftovers from the Paint Drips Quilt and instead of a white background color I chose a dark grey one - and as it seems I am not the only one anxiously waiting to get started!
