Yoko Saito's Mystery Quilt - it's on the wall!

Yes, it is hanging up!
Three and half years in making, 
Yoko Saito's Mystery BOM quilt, 
originally designed for Quiltmania magazine.

My first project finished this year.
All hand stitched - applique, embroidery and quilting.
I used the machine only for joining of the blocks and attaching the binding.

  1. this is a pretty special wall hanging, you must delighted that kept going with it a labour of love. Loving all those little houses and the angles they are set at

  2. Radka, je to skvelé, a 3,5 roka či viac, to nie je smerodajné!
    Hlavné je, že je to na stene a vyzerá naozaj na 1!

  3. What a lovely quilt! I'm looking forward to better photos.

  4. This quilt is beautiful! I had seen lots of them together in France a few years back and I was very impressen. Yours could have hung among them it would have enhenced the exhibition.

  5. I'm not surprised you couldn't wait to share it - it's fantastic.

  6. Beautiful, Radka, the colours are so very special and pleasing. How did you make the staircases? The ones on either side. Is it woven in the fabric? They make the village so interesting like it is biult on a hill.

  7. What a gorgeous hanging and a great first finish for the year. Well done. xx

  8. The quilt looks gorgeous and wonderful hanging on your wall.

  9. Your finished quilt is truly awesome, Radka. You should feel very proud of it hanging on your wall. An heirloom for sure.

  10. Beautiful! I've seen the original quilt at an exhibition but I prefer your colours. A real labour of love!

  11. Amazing. Beautiful work and such fun.

  12. Beautiful quilt! I love house quilts and yours is just amazing. I've been searching for this pattern online when I came across your blog. Love the bright colors. Thank you for sharing.
