This is my finished quilt from our guild mystery quilt from 2015. I decided to name it "A Study in Scarlet" after the first Sherlock Holmes novel. It seemed appropriate because it was a mystery quilt done in all shades of red (and black, obviously).
Below is a picture of the label. It is made from a piece of 2.5 inch strip leftover from making the top. I thought it would blend better than making it with white or off-white like I normally do.

I want to have it quilted in a variegated peacock blue thread that I saw at my quilt shoppe. The thread is the main reason that I made the quilt. I saw the thread and decided that I wanted to make a quilt in those colors. I had to order the fabric online, so I hope that it will actually match the thread.

Now I need to get the backing fabric ready and send it off to be quilted.
