2016 Finished Quilts - FQS Mystery Quilt 2012 - Quilt 10

Is anyone beginning to see a pattern here of the kind of quilts I like to make?  Yep, here is another one I got suckered into participating in from the Fat Quarter Shop.  They have an annual mystery quilt program.  I have only done two (I still have 2013 to put together.  Blocks are done, just have to get them sewn together and put one the borders.  Sigh...)  I haven't liked the last two years, but I did like this one for 2012.  It used Moda's Vintage Modern by Bonnie and Camille. 

Their fabric lines are focused around red and turquoise for colors.  And this quilt is full of both colors.  It is bright, fun, and well designed.  

Again, when using 12" X 12" blocks for a 12 month BOM program, you will usually end up with a twin size quilt.  This one measures 68" X 85".  I like the striped horizontal setting strips, and the flying geese vertical setting strips for the blocks.  It all played nice together.

Even the corners of the borders have some added whimsy to make this one stand out quite a bit.

Now the backing was a surprise, as it wasn't included in any of the blocks, but it ties in just perfect.
