WIP Midnight Mystery Quilt Top Finish

Finished my Midnight Mystery Quilt top last night put on by Cheryl Brickey of Meadow Mist Designs.  Today I could play around with some photos. I wish I had it quilted because I really like how this turned out.  It finished around 72" square and I think I will need some help getting that quilted...maybe. 
I used story fabric in the mustard/gold and my favorite news print in  cream. This is the third quilt I made with the Kona snow that came in a kit for my "The eyes have it" double-sided quilt. I still have about 3/4ths of a yard left.  

I admit I have a few troubles with my flying geese blocks and some of the points made with the flying geese points later. I think the squares pressed a little biasy but over all I really like it.  If anyone has any hints on how to make the no waste flying geese and you never get extra fabric in the point from when the other piece is sewn on...I wish you would share. I always get a little raw edge in there as if the squares sewing on were a tiny bit too big and they overlap too much. anywho....
All in all it was fun. So thanks to Cheryl!!

Beautiful quilt! I sent the picture of mine to Cheryl to post. I think this is a great pattern and I loved the big blocks! I have mine sandwiched and ready to quilt, but I have to finish other projects before I can get to that. I don't have any hints for you about the flying geese. Some of my points don't come out so clean--but that's what makes my quilts unique--I'm not so much of a perfectionist! I love how you have a nice place to hang it and take pictures!
Great pictures of a great quilt! I think the colors you used are wonderful. This really is a great pattern. Mine is still cut into pieces in a project box under my sewing table... :)

I love your version, great colors and great photography!
I love your quilt! The text print adds some texture to the quilt top already, and I'm sure once you quilt the top, the quilt will have even more texture to it. Congratulations on your finish!
