I scrolled through the archives for my favorite quilt from the last 6 months that I finished up and Lazy Sunday is the winner.  This was a mystery quilt that was featured in Quiltmaker magazine.

Hubby really likes this one.  I am not sure why except that the colors are darker.  Even after pointing out to him that there was green in the quilt (his least favorite color), he said, “Ya, but I not so much.”

I used Hobbs 80/20 which is my favorite batting these days.  As you can see, Ruby isn’t being quite as cooperative as usual.

My backing was pretty bland.  I was trying to use up fabric I had.  Both pieces are backing left overs from previous projects.  I had on extra block so that made it’s way into the backing too.  You can see my Baptist Fan design in the quilting.

I don’t know what was distracting our dog Ruby..but oh, she just wasn’t herself…

    Oh I love this quilt. Had to laugh while reading your post. Hubby doesn’t like green. I found out the same thing when I painted our bedroom green. First I had heard any talk of a non green lover! I am always a big hesitant to do mystery quilts till they are done and I can plan my colors. Wish I had seen this one. I do love it!
