Thanks Nana for setting this up for us. Sorry to hear you won't be joining us. 

I've been thinking about colors but haven't decided yet.

I have to get at least 1 christmas gift done before next Friday!

Bonnie Hunter spoke at our guild a few years ago.  I also took my first workshop with her and I made a scrappy star quilt.  It turned out beautifully.  When does this mystery start?

thanks,

Jackie G-R

Always keep in mind that Bonnie's mysteries are not a race, though there are some speed-demons over achievers enthusiastic quilters out there. The steps will be posted on her blog for 6 months or so. After that she takes them down so they can be published in her next book. The biggest part of the mysteries that I really like is using my scraps or using up fabric that I really don't like. Makes me remember what I used the fabric for originally, the time in my life that I bought and used it for and/or wondering what the heck I was I thinking when I bought it!  :-)

I have about 40 or so squares paired up and lines drawn on them for the hourglasses. I have been taking turns working on this and quilting the quilt for xmas I have been working on. Yesterday was starting this today was quilting lol. Tomorrow early afternoon will be back to this one or both who knows. I just don't like repeatedly changing my feet and thread out in a single day.

She may be taking it down sooner this time b/c this one is going in a book.  She mentioned something about it.

Yeah, I think I saw something to the effect that May 1st will be the day she removed all the links to the steps.  Maybe this year I can finish it before they go away! :-)

Don't you print out the instructions as they are posted?  That way you can keep them in a folder even after they are pulled.

I have 36 of the 72 string blocks done. (Jacy, I bet you're done with them) These really are fun to do and it forces me to use some old fabrics that I no longer had any use for. I haven't purchased a thing for this quilt so it will basically be a free project. I love that. The photo shows a few of the 224 hour glass blocks across the top. I'm so curious to see what the next step will be. Probably the reds and maybe reds and neutrals?

 


In the beautiful Pacific Northwest!

Looking good Judy!

This looks like a free project for me too. So far I've had enough scraps I haven't even got into any fat quarters. I'm loving this using up my scraps, I was bothered by all my scraps piling faster than I was using them. I see more scrap quilts in my future!
