mystery progress

I am making progress on the old world mystery quilt from Quilted Twins. I haven't sewn as much, since, I injured my finger. I really like putting this quilt together. It looks complicated, but, it doesn't have matching seams.

I have been cutting scraps almost everyday. At first, I was timid about cutting with a rotary cutter, even though, It was a kitchen knife that hurt my finger. But, any sharp object gave me a little anxiety. I am gaining my confidence. The plan is to work on scraps for at least 15 minutes a day. Once I start, I tend to do more. Goodness knows, I would have to cut all day to have any impact on the scrap problem around here.

The reveal is here for the old world mystery quilt at Quilted Twins.

  1. A bad cut certainly can make sharp objects more intimidating. Good for you for cutting up those scraps :) Your quilt is looking great so far.

  2. Your quilt is going to be GORGEOUS, Maggie!!! Nice job on your scrap cutting. Setting your timer and chopping away sounds like a good plan and a great way to make some headway!

  3. I need to set the same goal, of working on scrap organization every day. It is so overwhelming!

  4. Ooh, I love your reds and golds together! Your mystery quilt glows like rubies and citrine!
