Mosaic Mystery Quilt {Quilt Top}

It's been a LONG time since I posted about this project -- last year in fact! The construction directions were released in January, I printed them out, and only now finally managed to finish the quilt top. 

Because my burgundy fabrics were cut from three different fabrics and not from one fabric, I arranged the units so that a single fabric was used for an entire star. I ended up needing to make a few extra units as I put the rows together, but I had plenty of extra fabric. I didn't end up doing that with the pink fabrics and placed them randomly throughout the quilt top.


Going through my old blog posts, it looks like my original plan was to cut the additional pink fat quarters that I have (in the same fabrics I used in the quilt) into strips to make a scrappy, chunky border. I'm not sure if I want to do this or not but I don't have anything else left from this kit that would be enough yardage for a border. (I do, however, have another burgundy fabric that will work for the binding.) So this week I'll be deciding on that. It is probably big enough as is, but I might as well use the rest of those fat quarters.

What do you think? What have you been sewing this week?

  1. Unless those fat quarters are perfect for something new, I vote use them up! I hope you are having a great week.

  2. Very pretty! I really enjoyed sewing this mystery pattern.
    I put one fabric border on the top and bottom, and a different fabric border on the sides to use up some fabric and make it a bit bigger.

  3. Very pretty! I think more pink in the border will be lovely! I really like your burgundy stars.

  4. I think that a pink scrappy border would be awesome!
