Step #4 of Carole's Scrap Dance Minuet was posted last week and these are my blocks.
|step #4 blocks|
I challenged myself in making this mystery quilt to use up old fabric, most of which I don't like, in an attempt to see if I could "make a silk purse out of a sow's ear". And do you know what?
The more I have cut and sewn these old fabrics, the more I have come to like them!
Some people worry about making mystery quilts and think it might be a "waste of fabric" if they don't like the quilt when it's done.
But it's the process that I enjoy so much. It's like a surprise adventure! And if I don't like how the quilt turns out, I am happy to donate the project to a worthy cause. There is always someone out there in the world who will like it and be thankful to have it.
Next month is the grand reveal of the quilt layout and I can't wait to see what my "silk purse" quilt is going to look like!
PS...even easy sewing sometimes requires a seam ripper!! (bottom right block!)
