Made With Love by Mary Mystery Revealed

I completed the last step of the Made with Love by Mary Mystery.  It's a quilt called Buckeye Beauty.  The pattern is by Judy Hopkins and is a free mystery pattern that you can get at:

Now that I have a couple of bins empty (Made with Love by Mary mystery quilt, Terry's Treasures Sew Along, Easy Street.  I just might start something new in April.  The Brick Raod Sew Along with Sunflower Quilts looks like it could be a scrap buster.  I might have to use up some stray scraps for it.  Check it out:


  1. I hope I get to see some other examples of the mystery quilt because I'm guessing yours will be the stand out. I really really love the fabrics you used for this--there's enough contrast and it's still so subtle and soft-looking. Brava!!

    Ps. The big purple quilt, Wild Pansy, that I posted a couple weeks ago was also made from Buckeye Beauty Blocks--could two quilts look more different?

  2. I love that! It turned out beautifully. Thank you so much for sharing and playing along.
