Hello, friends, and welcome to the final week for the Christmastime Mystery Quilt Finishing post. I’m excited to be able to share my finished quilt, some tips for putting it all together, and some fun ideas for your upcoming Christmas sewing.
Christmastime Mystery Quilt Finishing
It’s fun to be able to reveal this finished mystery mini! I absolutely love how mine turned out. Working with the tree fabric for a background took a little extra time but was well worth it. I love the added sparkle the trees add to the finished quilt front.

Christmastime Finishing Pattern Tips
Putting this mini quilt together is actually quite easy! Just be sure to measure your sections before cutting the borders to make sure your borders are the correct size. My friend Vicki did a simple all-over flower pattern design on my quilt. I love the red sparkle fabric for the binding.

Thanks so much for following along on my Christmastime Mystery Quilt journey. This was sure a fun little quilt to make. Not only do I have a finished mini, but I also love that the blocks make terrific small pillows or mug rugs.
Such a fun and easy quilt. Thank you for sharing with us🤗

Sew cute! Love that directional background. It looks so good! I am often drawn to directional fabrics. I try to avoid it but sometimes it is just worth it. Thank you for sharing your mini.

love your fabrics – looks great! i wasn’t happy with my week 2 fabric choices – so, I made the cup and candy blocks into potholders and the other two blocks make nice small table toppers. will be festive for a party i’ll be hosting.
really looking forward to your/Chelsi’s Home for the Holidays sampler sew along!

Congratulations on a fun Christmas finish!
I’m just working on block #4 and am excited to see how my blocks look together.
It was a challenge with using directional fabric to make sure it all went the correct direction, but I loved the challenge.
The only question I had was on the finishing directions. It showed using 16 blocks for the backside of the quilt, yet with my 10″ squares, that was way too big. Am I missing something?

The back will be trimmed to size after quilting. If you’re quilting yourself, you might not need all 16 full-size squares 🙂
