The Marcus Sew-Along Quilt, Revealed!

SALButtonHORZ14Here it is!

SALRevealedDo you love it as much as we do? We’d like to thank everyone who has participated for the past nine weeks, block by block, and, as I promised, the end result is beautiful. Congratulations to everyone who kept up, and if you were not able to, we’re sure that this image of the finished quilt will inspire you to catch up in the completion phase.

And thanks to all of our talented and generous designers for taking time to participate, including the gorgeous finishing design by Paula Barnes and piecing by Mary Ellen Robison of Red Crinoline Quilts with quilting and binding by Gloria Parsons of Olde Green Cupboard Designs.  

Complete instructions for the finishing are available on the Red Crinoline Quilts blog, but if you still need to catch up on the nine blocks first, here are the links to the blog posts:

  2. Oh my! It’s even better than I expected! What a great way to set off all those gorgeous blocks. I’m off to my sewing room to get started!

  3. Thank you for doing this mystery quilt. Although I wasn’t able to start it yet, it has been fun waiting until Friday to see the next block.

  4. This quilt is beautiful. I’m always hesitant to do mystery quilts but when I saw it used Paula Barnes fabric I was in. I am so glad and eager to finish this quilt up. Thank you for such a fun experience.

  5. Thank you so much for this lovely quilt. While not quite up to date with my blocks, I do have several done and am excited to finish now that I’ve seen the final product. This is the first sew along I’ve ever tried and I love it!! I waited patiently (or maybe impatiently!) for Friday morning every week. I definitely will get it finished -who needs to cook or clean anyway??!!


  6. Yes it is quite a surprise finish and I love the setting.

  9. Thank-you designers, one & all, for a beautiful and fun project. I’ve avoided mystery quilts in the past, but this project seemed different from the start. So happy to have been able to follow from the beginning! Each block was original and the final quilt is awesome! Thanks!
