May's Mystery Quilt Finish

Happy to share my finished quilt top! I had to lay it in my foyer and stand at the top of the stairs to get the whole top in the picture. I would like to thank everyone that participated in my little Mystery sew-along as well as those that cheered us on!

I called this quilt Easy Summer Breeze because the pattern I created reminded me of Box Kites darting in the sky on a Summer Breeze.

If you didn't participate in the sew-along but wish to make the quilt later on - please share pictures on your blog. I'd love to see them. I only ask that you do not copy my pattern instructions to distribute them without my consent.

I am hosting another FREE sew-along in June however it won't exactly be a Mystery quilt.
The Pre-cut of choice we will use this time is a Jelly Roll. (40 strips of assorted prints 2.5" wide x WOF) The quilt is perfect for a first time quilter. (it's much easier to make than May's Mystery project)

Here is the Jelly roll I'll be using called Cornucopia by Artisan Batiks.

Stay tuned.... I'll have ALL the details for you on Friday!
Meanwhile - if you have finished your Mystery Quilt (or made further progress on it) and would like to share, please add your blog link below:
