We all scream for Ice Cream

Forgot to post about my finished Harlequin Ice Cream quilt.

This was a block of the month mystery quilt sponsored by my quilt guild.  I sent my quilt top to my local long arm quilter, and she did a beautiful job with a swirly overall design.

I entered the quilt into our guild's annual quilt show, where it was displayed together with the other completed BOM's from our guild members.

Here is how mine looked, hanging in the show:

And here are some of the others:
These were all made from the same pattern of blocks, yet how different they all are depending on the color placement and the block layout.

This one used the exact same layout as mine, but the lights and mediums were in an alternate position in the block:

This one was made by my friend Rosemary.  She was the only one who used sashing between the blocks, and also the only one with a pieced border.

I'm not usually a fan of mystery quilts.  I like to know what something is going to look like before I invest the time into making it.  On the other hand, knowing that so many others were getting their quilts finished in time for the show was great motivation to get mine done too.

  1. That is really lovely. It reminds me of the Neopolitan ice cream "blocks" we enjoyed as children.

  2. Just saw this post! I feel like I'm back at our quilt show! I love the fabrics you used in your quilt. It was fun shopping for the border with you too!
