I really ummed and erred about posting a photo of this quilt, just in case there was any readers were doing this mystery quilt and hadn’t finished it. But I did a search on the quilt and there are solved pictures all over the internet, so I’m going to post mine and hope I haven’t ruined someone’s surprise.
I had a box of scrap squares, a roll of black homespun and a need for mindless sewing. I found the solved Scraptitude Mystery Quilt here, and decided that I loved the design and my box of scraps would work well. And I got to it.
I’m very pleased with it, though it’s very bright!!
It did go together okay, though not brilliantly. It has a lot of bias triangles to work with and bias triangles and I don’t really get along. Though I’m trying hard to rectify that. To make them my friend.
Loving the black with the colours. I think I’ll bind this one in black homespun. Don’t look at the whooofy edges, will you? Hopefully the quilting will sort them out, at least a little.
I told you I’d had a productive time while everyone is back at school and my husband is busy working. I’ve been head down, bum up, sewing madly.
Anyway, my lovely readers – hope you liked my latest foray into scrap quilting. Please drop me a line and let me know what you’re up to?
