  1. So excited to finish this up. It's been my first quilt. Lol. Not sure why I chose a mystery quilt as my first. I was very intimidated. I had all my cutting done but didn't actually start sewing until December. Just in time to do the January block. This group has been so informative and kind. I keep forgetting post pictures. I'll have to do that later! Thanks Cheryl!
