Yesterday, I posted about the first set of rows in the Macaron Mystery….
Now it was time to make the alternating rows.
There were numerous long strips to be sewn together…..
…often with few points to use for registration.
I am not normally a pinner, but I pinned every intersection….
and added a few other pins along the strip as well…..
With careful sewing, I soon had the top finished…..
I preferred to make it a rectangle rather than square, so I cut off part of the side border and added it to the top and bottom of the quilt….
Honestly, I am not happy with the fabric choices but it will still make a great charity quilt and I truly enjoyed working on it!!!
Do you struggle with picking fabrics for a mystery quilt??? I never want to use the exact colors that are suggested in a mystery but often get in trouble when I don’t. Meadow Mist Designs offers a “sneak peek” at the beginning of the mystery and next year I will avail myself of that offer!!!
