Hello sweet quilting friends! The temperature outside is a very chilly -2 but indoors I'm trying to keep things sunny and warm by working on one of my most colorful UFO's. This is Bonnie Hunters Mystery quilt, En Provence. This was my first attempt at joining in with a Mystery quilt along. I did okay until it came to the borders. The units were pieced and the body of the quilt was put together but I just couldn't find the time to put the borders on. So that's my goal for this week....get this top completed and maybe on the quilt frame.
The mystery is over but the pattern can be purchased here. Below is Bonnie's finished quilt.
I always follow along with the clues for Bonnie's mystery, but had never tried to make one. This years mystery quilt is called On Ringo Lake, you can find all the clues up to this point here. If you join Bonnie's Facebook you can get some great color inspiration,piecing help, as well as other quilts her followers are making. My decision to make it or not will come after the big reveal. The fabric has been pulled and purchased, but I'll not be using the suggested colors. Last year I chose to go completely scrappy as suggested by Bonnie, but if I do it this year I'll be making mine with 4 different fabrics.
I really love the super scrappiness of this one but cutting for it took FOREVER. Mr. Podunk thinks it's very busy...eh...what does he know about quilting?!
This one depleted my PKM and low volume stash so I've spent most of the year replenishing them both. Not an easy task when it comes to PKM since she and Holly no longer make fabrics.
I hope to see you in a couple of days with a completed top. Send me some scrappy mojo vibes....I'm gonna need all the help I can get!
Thanks for stopping by my little spot in Podunk!
