Tag Archives: Morewood Mystery Quilt


I've been mostly keeping up with the mystery quilt schedule and I'm all set for the next set of instructions on January 7 for the Morewood Mystery. I opted for a Hanukkah quilt, which I'm looking forward to enjoying next Fall as Hanukkah begins November 28 in 2021. The mystery quilt along wraps up in April which gives me plenty of time for quilting and binding by November. :-)

I chose this luscious blue Alison Glass Sun Print (2018 Compass in Lapis) for my background fabric, partnering it with Kona Blueberry, two Hanukkah prints from my stash and the silver and white dots. This month we made more HSTs that we turned into hourglass (or QST) units. And now all of our fabrics are in play!

I look forward to seeing how these components go together!


Way back in July I started the Morewood Mystery Quilt with Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs. I have participated in her mystery quilts in the past and love the pace of the instructions. I've mostly kept up with the monthly schedule.

I decided on this blue, white, and silver Hanukkah palette, choosing the royal blue print as my background. I initially planned for both white and silver prints to be combined for position in the quilt, but was able to cut all the pieces from the dots.

My 30 petal units are done from November's instructions.

These little 4-patch units are from October.

These are my HSTs from September. I still need to finish 30 HSTs from November... then I can get started on December's instructions (which start with more HSTs). :-)

Tonight is the first night of Hanukkah. Chag sameach!
