Foothills Mystery - Mosaic/que Guild Highlight

Today, I would love to show you the Mosaic/que guild versions of my Foothills Mystery Quilt for their mystery quilt-along that just wrapped up (The Foothills Mystery was a quilt-along that ran from 2014-2015, free pattern here). I was so excited when Chantal contacted me about the finishes and graciously allowed me to highlight her guild here on my blog.

Here is what Chantal said about her guild, "The Mosaic/que guild is located in Brossard, a suburb near Montreal, in Qu├ębec, Canada. It has around 30 members. It's an evening guild, meeting twice a month. Half of the people are French speaking, half of the people are English speaking. Half of the people are retired, half of the people are still working. We're all women, aged between 25 and 80, average around 60. It's really a good mix of kind women sharing the same passion.

We were looking for a mystery quilt for our 2015-2016 season. Most of guild members are very traditional but I was looking for something a little bit different, but that can be achieve with any kind of fabric. It's really stressful to pick a pattern for a bunch of people. We started the Foothills Mystery Quilt in September 2015. A new step was given each month. At reveal date in May 2016, 10 persons have completed the quilt on time. And some people were missing. And some have not completed it yet. Everybody loved the pattern, despite the 144 HST to do. Since most of the members are really traditional, nearly half of them couldn't help to add a border to their finished quilt, which makes them even more interesting."






I love all of the different colorways and the different borders.  Thanks Chantal for allowing me to share your guild's finishes!

Is your guild looking for a mystery quilt?  You are welcome to join in on the new Meadow Mystery Quilt starting in July or use the Foothills Mystery Quilt or Midnight Mystery Quilt patterns.  I would love to see your guild's take on the patterns!

  1. I really love getting to see a pattern in different colorways. How fun that the guild used your Foothills Mystery pattern and we got to see the lovely results. :)

  2. That would be the ultimate, to share each block, to meet, discuss, encourage, and then to see the final quilts, so many fabrics chosen, and every one a true winner. How fab to see them there Cheryl, and a testament to your designs, and tutorials for another mystery quilt.

  3. Wow, 30% of the members finishing sounds like great participation! Amazing to see the difference it makes with the placement of the lights and darks within each quilt.

  4. It's so awesome to see this! I have an adult learning group all the way in Oklahoma (I'm in Maryland) that is going to use one of my patterns for a beginner/continuing education sewing class and I cannot wait to see the results!

  10. I get such a kick out of seeing the same design rendered in different fabrics. I know we EQ7 users can play like that whenever we want, but seeing the actual finished quilts is a different matter altogether!

    I don't think I've ever used solid black in a quilt, so it's interesting to me that my favorite of the quilts above is the last one, in black and yellow. I think it's the high contrast that's so satisfying, especially in a quilt that has a chunky design. Love it!

  14. How fun! That's what I miss the most about not taking classes, it's always so fun to see how a quilt works out with all the different fabric choices.

  15. Thank you all for your kind words. And thanks Cheryl who did a wonderful job with a good design and an easy to read pattern. I had no question about the pattern.

    Actually, 2 or 3 persons completed after the deadline. And I know some more have started the project. It's really a good participation, I was very surprised.
