What in the world does NQT NYD MQ 2010 mean? Well, it means "Not Quite Traditional" New Year's Day Mystery Quilt 2010. It's a class I took from Longarm University. It was all online. It was really a lot of fun. Here is my finished product:
We did not quite traditional cross hatching and Baptist fans. It was fun.
My SIL, Angel (she doesn't update her blog, but I thought I'd link it anyway), made this quilt for one of her friends after their mother passed away. Her friend brought her some of her mom's old clothes, and Angel made this great hidden nine patch quilt from some of them (the light blue and denim looking solids).
I did an all-over feather, floral, and swirl pattern. I had a lot of fun with this quilt. I branched out from my comfort zone and used a Neon Red colored thread. It's funny, because the thread ended up taking on the pink tones from the fabrics instead of being red.

I rang in the new year by making this fabulous quilt! I used the Turning Twenty pattern by Tricia Cribbs and used Love by Amy Butler. I just love Love! It's so beautiful! I picked 6 of my favorite fabrics for the blocks and another fabric for the border.
