Magnolia Mystery Progress

For Main Crush Monday I thought I would share my progress on Magnolia Mystery sponsored by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.  That's a  lot of M's for one sentence.



I challenged myself to shop my stash for all of the fabrics and I did.  I only had enough yardage of one batik, the green, which will be the background (Fabric D).


The two lighter batiks will be Fabrics A and B with the spotted one being Fabric A.  I wanted to reverse these and make the spots Fabric B but there wasn't enough.  I just realized I didn't include Fabric C in my photographs but I've chosen a brown, another batik, as Fabric C.  I'll show it next time.


So far we've cut the half-square triangles and I have a pile of trimming to show for it.



And, here are the finished half-square triangles (HSTs) all trimmed and neatly stacked.


So far so good as the next round of instructions comes out this Thursday, October 5th.  Excited to have kept up to this point I'm linking to Beth at Cooking Up Quilts for MCM #90.

  1. Shopping your stash is not as exciting as buying new, but you have found some real sweet picks for this project. And will feel so good about making room for future purchases. The pile of HST's looks promising!

  7. I, too, struggled a bit with yardage when shopping my stash and had to use fabrics I liked in different spots than I was hoping. Your HSTs look beautiful!

  8. This is going to be lovely! I like that you're using green as the background with neutrals as the accents!

  9. Hi Paige,
    What very pretty fabrics! That stack of HSTs look like they will become something beautiful when they grow up. HSTs are my new favorite blocks - they are so darn versatile. I look forward to seeing where this project goes. ~smile~ Roseanne

  12. I'm interested in how this quilt will turn out made in batiks. I think it's great that you shopped your stash....for this quilt....unfortunately for me a lot of my stash is fat quarters so It's a bit harder to shop for an entire quilt.

  15. Love seeing that pile of trimmings and HSTs. I didn't take part this year, doing Yvonne's instead, but once the quilt is revealed, I just might! Like you, I like to shop my stash for QALs.
