without a complaint, without a sound
Welcome to the Quilting Board!
Ok That makes sense I was thinking of some kind of tool they use to use. Silly me.
Thank you for setting me straight now I can explain to the children and teachers what a mutter is.
Well it is hard to come up with a rhyme for cutter! So mutter must mean complaint!
mutter-----german for Mother lol, but I guess that is not what they are talking about.:)
