Mystic Nights Quilt
I have been working on this quilt a little bit each day that I can and it still isn't all pieced. It will really be pretty when it is finished with the strips around for the border. I got the pattern and fabrics from Keepsake Quilting. Derek Lockwood designed the quilt. I like his quilts and have quilted several of them. I usually change the background fabric. He uses a lot of blacks. I have cataracts and cannot see black very well when I am quilting/sewing. So I change a lot of his black background to white. I did not change anything on this quilt thought. It will have a dark green border and then a black border on the outside. The strips are sewed together in the order he gave. Then they are cut at different sizes and the strips sewed together. I have sewed it together using one fourth of the quilt. I then sewed the two one-fourths together. I have the last fourth of it nearly finished. Just lack about 4 strips. Then I will sew the third fourth to the fourth fourth and then the two halves together. The quilt is too heavy to sew each strip to the whole each time I get one strip made.
