Every year on the Friday after the US Thanksgiving I start a mystery quilt with Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. It is my annual tradition and this year is no exception. I take the day off work and treat myself to a whole day of sewing.
Here is a review of the last few years:
2019 Frolic (still in progress but so close to the top being done)
2018 Good Fortune (still in progress)
2016 En Provence - is one of my all time favourite quilts!
2015 Allietare - one of my favourite UFOs!
I don't always finish the mystery quilts I start, but some day I know I will because I love each one!
The combination of recommended colours is one that requires sun glasses, but hopefully my fabric choices will magically turn into a lovely quilt. I am using one consistent background/neutral this time for the first time and am curious to discover if I will like that or not. All the colours are bits and pieces and most of them are less than a fat quarter, so there will be a lot of scrappiness in this quilt. I'm a little short on the greys so may need to look in the deep stash for more. I was determined to not buy any fabric this year, so it is what it is!Remember the golden rule of Quiltville mysteries... no whining! There will be hundreds of small pieces and hours of sewing ahead. Why not make a pot of tea and join in the fun!
