Mayhem Mystery quilt top finished

Wow, it's been a busy week. Stayed up until 2am on 2 January, to start the Mayhem Mystery, only to be so tired I had to go to bed before starting. Woke up at 4am and started sewing all the strips together - at 7am I had to pack up all my sewing to go on vacation in the caravan! That was Monday. Tuesday I had the chance to do  little more, so I sewed all the squares together. That took what seemed like hours and hours. Wednesday we did a day trip to Maclean - The Scottish Town in Australia, so no sewing. Today I was determine to finish the top and I did.

I am very happy with the way it turned out. I did change the long borders by adding a row of three squares in the center.

The colour strips I chose.

I did multiple layers for cutting



 My sewing area while camping.

 All the pairs cut and waiting for matching

I'm really happy with it

Happy sewing
