I'm Doing It. . . !


After years of watching others produce amazing, one-of-a-kind, scrappy (my favorite!) colorful, stash-busting quilts from Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville Mysteries, I've jumped on the Quilt Train to success and joined them! Quiltville will post a new mystery clue every Friday starting November 18th for 7-8 weeks and you need to keep up!

If you are familiar with Bonnie's mysteries, they are not for the faint at heart!! There's lots and lots. . . and LOTS of work to do. (For example, the first clue is to make 224, 2 1/2" quarter square triangles!! Yes, that means the triangles are cut from 1 1/2" strips--OH, MY!)

As you can see, I've got them started--in fact, I have 211 finished at this writing! Should be finished by tomorrow. Are you going to join me? I'll bet there are a lot of comments about this mystery on Judy's Design Wall Monday post today--go see!

Thanks for the name of the Mystery Quilt, checking it out right now. I may start behind but I will catch up over the next week as I have some time off. The ruched flowers took a lot of time last night and I finally finished the last at 10:30. I did take a few minutes Sunday and pulled some fabric from my stash.....now I need to see if I have more. FUN!!

I thought about jumping into this one, but guess I was one of the faint of heart followers. I'll enjoy by watching you and others participate, though!

Good for you! You're way ahead of me, but I have a feeling I'm going to have to do this one, too. So far I've only printed the instructions. LoL
