Judy's Mystery Medallion: we're almost done!

I've been making up for lost time this month, quilting wise, after having spent most of the spring and summer in the gardens. with a small CSA for 30+ families, there is always something to weed, plant, harvest or cultivate. I love to grow and produce food for lots of local families, but I love to quilt, too!
this month I'm actually done on time! below are my 12 blocks that we pieced in October. you can see that I've ended up using 6 different whites; but I like the scrappy look, so it's ok.
and actually, I substituted another fabric in this block. I ran out of the the yellow "bubble" fabric, and my LQS was out, so I bought the coral colored "bubble" fabric. and I L.O.V.E. it! lucky me, it co-ordinates so nicely! I did get more of the yellow fabric off e-bay, so I do have a smidgen more, and will be able to use it for something, if it's called for in the final borders.

some of us work better under pressure, i guess!

Judy over at Patchwork Times has been hosting a mystery quilt this year, a Mystery Medallion. Crazy lady that I am, I've been participating. What with the garden and all, I had fallen behind way back in July, and this week I've been working really, REALLY hard to catch up.

Finally- I'm caught up, and I'm even looking forward to working on October's clue. (I'm SO glad it's a star- I thought it might be another economy block!)

I have it on good authority that we'll be doing another mystery quilt next year, so make plans now to jump on in! it was lots of fun, and it's nice to do a quilt that is different from what you/I might normally do.

make sure to look at all the other Mystery Medallions linked up over at Judy's. it's a good lesson in how different fabric choices, both color AND value, can make the same quilt look very different.
