How do you feel about breaking vows? This is not a sacred vow. No, this is a vow that I made to myself. You see a few years ago, I participated in a mystery quilt along. Near the end, the designer said something like "Oops, my pattern doesn't work. You need to rip out parts" ARRRGH. At that point I promised myself "no more mystery quilts."
Famous last words!
Today I started - albeit late - on a mystery quilt. Since the first clue had been taken down already, a friend kindly sent it to me. Now I have this interesting "quilt mess" on my sewing table.
I will leave them as is - just so the bigger block is the correct size. I am not about "perfection" in quilting. Done is better than perfect!
This is allowing me to use up some scraps and random fat quarters that I have collected. I also had a 2 1/2" mini charm pack that I got as a "Deal of the Day" from Missouri Star Quilt Company- in it goes too!
In a few days I will be reviewing a new book by Christina Cameli.
