I love this quilt. Just thought I would start out with that. I took a mystery quilt class at local quilt shop and made this quilt.
The mystery quilt class is a lot of fun, but stressful as well. At first I was just given a material list. Not knowing what the pattern was going to be made it a little hard to pick out colors. Then we had this beautiful line from Adorn It come in. Its called Capri. And it was love at first sight. My room colors and yellow, grey and black and I had been wanting to make a new quilt for my bed.
Once I had my fabric I got the cutting instructions. That was the easy part. I just cut out a little over 50 ten inch squares, and borders.
In the class I learned a new way to do half square triangles as well as chain piecing. I had done a little chain piecing before but nothing like this. Since the class I have done 2 quilts with chain piecing.
I took the class with my mom and sister in law and we had a lot of fun. It was an all day class which made it even better.

The quilter traced the flowers from the border into some of bigger squares. I love what she did with this quilt. I am always a little nervous that the quilting won’t turn out how I envision it. But she surpassed my expectations with this quilt.
