I love a good mystery…

November 28, 2014

Several years ago another shop owner introduced me to Bonnie Hunter – a quilter extraordinaire who specializes in scrappy quilts and using up scraps.

Her annual mysteries have been going on for several years – last year was the first time I gave it a whirl.

It was fun and I worked hard to keep up with the “clues” each week.

Of course the holidays got in the way of some of my sewing…

I did get “most” of everything made week after week.

Then the big reveal….  so much excitement!

I had to put together the two blocks just to see how mine would look!

None the less, I am again ready for the game to begin again – our first clue came out this morning.

Printed copy in hand and ready to cut….

Bonnie says it is a quicker, easier one this year….

Maybe I can finish both

This block was a fast and fun one to make!  It was also the first time I used a #6 Accuquilt die to cut units.  Don’t you love the square on point?  It was easy to figure out which die to use.  When you look at this block, it is essentially a 9 patch block.
