Finished Mystery Quilt Top

Ta da!
My finished En Provence mystery quilt top is finally finished and on the design wall! This is the Quiltville mystery project that started at the end of November. 
It measures 70 " x 70" which is wider than my design wall, so the left side is pinned to a sheet that is covering the doorway.




I had to add in a few extra neutral fabrics in the last border, which aren't in the centre of the quilt, but I think it looks okay. Almost all of the fabrics are from Amanda Jean Nyberg's Good Neighbors from Connecting Threads.
Now we're ready for basting and quilting.

Lovely! I'll be interested to see how you quilt En Provence. I have my quilt top done, but am stymied as to how to quilt it.

Great finish and your top is stunning.

Your background is truly amazing. I'm always rejecting neutral background fabric with color but I see in your quilt how sparkling it is to have very pale colors. I think that's the key, to keep them pale.....your mystery quilt is beautiful:)

I love your cute neutrals, the top is great with them.

Wow! This is the best I've seen of these. I especially like all your neutrals. I can't tell in the picture if the border is one fabric or a bunch of squares. Either way, it looks awesome. Now I wish I'd participated in this quilt along.

Woohoo!!! It looks great!!!
(I finished my top, too, but folded it up and put it away. Too many other irons in the finishing fire at the moment, so I removed temptation.)
