Did you see that Bonnie Hunter has posted the fabric requirements for her 2017/18 mystery quilt adventure?
The new mystery is called On Ringo Lake. I have sewn almost every Quiltville mystery that Bonnie has offered (my pre-2014 mystery quilts and the 2014/15 finishes). I think the only one I missed was Old Tobacco Road in 2005.
This year I finished 2014's mystery called Grand Illusion. I didn't really follow the pattern since I didn't like one of my original fabric choices (a very flat dull green) and so I had to remove the sashing to get rid of the green. Then I lost a few pieces (hey it happens over the years!) and had to change the border, and well... it's finally a finished quilt!
This is my quilt top from the 2016 mystery called En Provence. I used mostly fabrics from the Good Neighbours fabrics line by Amanda Jean Nyberg at Crazy Mom Quilts. I enjoyed the method of starting with a package of fabric that I love, and adding scraps and pieces that coordinate as I see how much fabric is needed in each colour. I really, really like how this one turned out and will be putting it on the top of my UFO list to finish in 2018.
So, back to planning for the new 2017 mystery quilt. Again, I am going to start the mystery using a lovely bundle of fabric and then add in pieces and scraps from my stash. This is a fabric line called Blue Sky by Edyta Sitar. I purchased the bundle at Cherished Pieces in Tillsonburg. I think this is the perfect project for using up this treasure!
Are you joining in the mystery this year? It's so fun not having any idea what we are sewing! Be prepare for lots of cutting and sewing of small pieces (my favourite!) as well as complex block construction made easy with great instructions!
Counting down the days to the start of step #1 on November 24th! I have a few other things to keep me out of trouble until then! LOLOLOLOL!!!
