Morewood Mystery ++ My Version

Have you seen any Morewood Mystery quilt tops or finished quilts yet?  I am enjoying seeing the first finishes with all of the different fabrics and colors each quilter used.  

You can see all of the Morewood Mystery quilts as they post in the Meadow Mist Designs Facebook Group and on social media using the hashtag #morewoodmysteryquilt.

All of the information and instructions for the free, monthly Morewood Mystery quilt can be found on the Morewood Mystery Page and I have a full pdf version of the pattern available in my shop.

Here is my version of the Morewood Mystery...


For my version, I used four speckle fabrics from Ruby Star on a background of Bella white, all from Moda fabrics.

I used Aurifil 50 wt soft white thread (2021) for both the piecing and quilting and the batting is Warm & White by the Warm Company.

For the backing, I used a gray Anna Maria Horner print that I had a bolt of.  I had originally picked out a navy print, but once the quilt top was together, I decided that I wanted a softer and lighter backing for the quilt.


My main goal for the quilting was to add texture throughout the quilt and especially the white background so I decided to go with an allover design.

One of my favorite designs to quilt is a large paisley swirl type design.  It is larger in scale so it goes quickly, adding texture without taking away from the piecing design.


I would like to thank Yvonne @Quilting Jetgirl for her amazing tech editing skills. I would also like to thank Shelly Folkerts and Tish Stemple for testing the pattern for me to make sure that the quilt pattern was easy to follow and error free.


If you would like to make your own Morewood Mystery quilt, you can start at any time because the free pattern instructions will always be available.  All of the information and instructions can be found on the Morewood Mystery Page, or if you prefer, I have a full pdf version of the pattern available in my shop.

The reveal parade showing everyone's finished Morewood Mystery quilts will be on April 13th.

  1. What a stunning design and version, Cheryl! It's been very exciting getting to see everyone's versions coming together. :)

  2. This looks like a "winter" version of your quilt and certainly suits the season right now. The backing material suits the colors you chose and the binding finishes off nicely. Thanks for sharing. I'll be posting mine when done.

  3. I always love to see your quilts! They have such an unique style :) xo

  4. Your original Morewood Mystery turned out beautifully. Thank you for another fun mystery.
