Oh my goodness, I had so much fun joining in with this quilt along! Today I’m showing off my Christmastime Mystery Quilt Finish!
This mystery quilt along is hosted by Fat Quarter Shop. Over the last four weeks, they have been releasing a block a week, and today is the release and final reveal of the finished quilt. I am so happy with how it turned out!
Christmastime Mystery Quilt Finish
For my version of the quilt, I used Tasha Noel’s Christmas collection, Pixie Noel 2, and a white background. These prints are so fun, and I had a blast fussy cutting the blocks. After I assembled the quilt, I added detail stitching with my Baby Lock Sashiko machine around each block. I decided to do the stitching after assembling the quilt top so that it would be easier to outline each block. Some of the outlines overlapped into the sashing, so it worked great to have it all assembled. I used a red Aurifil thread so the outlines would really stand out.
Some of the details were pretty small, like the inside of the mug, but there was still room to do the stitching.
I quilted the mini on my Baby Lock Regalia with a Knit 1 Purl 2 design. I thought the little loops looked really sweet with the blocks. And I had no problem with the machine quilting over the sashiko stitching. It worked like a dream!
For the back, instead of doing the pieced backing in the instructions, I used one of the prints from Pixie Noel 2. I loved the design in the prints and wanted to show it off!
I can’t wait to put this up for the holidays!! I am thinking I need some matching pillows. What do you think?!

I adore your quilt! The red accent stitching adds another wonderful element with the texture and emphasizing the blocks… fabulous!
And the striped binding… total swoon!
Thank you so much!!
