One Quilt Finished, While I Wait By The Door


I finished it!  My Mystery Quilt is DONE~ 

It's only been about a year or so since I started....HQing does take awhile...especially when you are just stitching by the seat of your pants and don't have any particular design in mind. I just kinda "do my own thing" , but it stays together and looks okay.

This is called The DaChintzy Code Quilt.....It was on a forum that I frequent,,,every two weeks another step of the construction was revealed...I think they chose a lovely pattern. I am giving it away to a relative.......maybe the givee will like it as much as I do....

IN THE MEANTIME... 

I am checking outside, waiting by the door, looking at the clock.  Waiting for that special package that UPS states, "...is out for delivery".

Just stepped outside...at 10:30am (our time) the temp. is about 74* ...this is waaayyyy different than the 100* + weather we have been having...don't know if this is the beginning of a trend, finally, or just a teasing hiccup, but I am heading for the front porch to drink a cup of coffee with my DH, 

while staring down the lane looking for that big Brown Van with that Special Package.........

Your quilt is beautiful. I've just started a mystery quilt also with my quilt guild. I'm lagging behind and am still on step 1. Ours is called Down on the Farm.

I hope it arrives soon!!!! Maybe you will get to play over the weekend :)
Beautiful quilt! Love the colors! Congrats on a great finish.
We are experiencing cooler weather today too - just 78 at 11:00. Ours won't last because it ALWAYS heats back up for the fair and that starts Wednesday.
Have a wonderful weekend :)

Glad it has cooled down there. I made that quilt too. Isn't it a great pattern?

Great job. Isn't hand quilting relaxing. I'm slow, too. I'd be faster if I quilted instead of just passing the quilt by all the time.
