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!

And here it is still….

Will I finish this??   Absolutely!

 When will I finish???   TBD

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

Twas the night before Friday and all through the studio there is a flurry of activity as I clear my table in anticipation of the second clue.  I wonder what it might be this week. The cheery red and white four patches remind me of peppermints and Christmas.  The coffee is set and my clothes laid out.  I am an early riser by nature and I wake early to begin checking my phone for the next clue.

 

It seems the world over is urging Bonnie to wake and to post the next clue…this is a testament to the positive power she has near and far...even across the water to Australia.

It’s Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt time and the theme is Good Fortune!  What a lovely sentiment….good fortune. I have had the Good Fortune to be surrounded by friends and family both far and near and although the mystery is a special blessing for those whose families are scattered or gone for me it is a Blessing and a time for renewal and reflection.

This is the fourth mystery quilt I have chosen to create in the last 5 years. I took one year off and there are parts of me that still regret that decision.  However, my design wall clearly called my name and asked that I finish a few of my own projects…..I completed 4 between Thanksgiving and Christmas...how, it’s a bit of a mystery.

Sunday afternoons mean lazy naps for some, football for others and for me it means cutting time.  

I am usually rested and ready to set up my weeks sewing projects. At the end of a work day it’s easy peasy to sew a few seams here and there and by the end of the week I am ready for another Sunday afternoon cutting session.
