Quiltville Mystery - My First!

>> Monday, December 11, 2017

I'm pretty excited to be making time in my hectic holiday schedule to squeeze in a Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt!

Believe it or not, these are the only fabrics I had to buy for the mystery. I got the rest from my stash. If you follow me on Instagram you can see a photo of my stash fabrics that I pulled. I bought all of these online and only that one very dark brown one will be stepping aside because it really is too busy to read 'brown'.

This is my progress so far on clue #1. I finished cutting all of my pieces and organizing them to sew on every night this week. In between quilting a quilt to give as a Christmas gift. ahem.

Bonnie has posted clue #3 and I needed to catch up with my cutting and piecing so last night I did a trial sew of some fabrics for clue #2.

Clue #2 is all flying geese! I rarely use coral in quilts and was happy to have an excuse to use up some of the fabrics that have made their way into my stash.

 I'm also using up some of my neutrals which is very hard for me to do. It's a challenge for me to even buy neutrals! Once I find one I like I find it hard to use; so far, sew good:) Clue #3 will also be using the corals and neutrals. I have more of these fabrics but these are the ones I will start with for these two clues. I'm a bit reluctant to cut into all of my different ones for one clue and not have anything different to use for later clues.

Do you like quilt mysteries? I'm going to link up over at Quiltville so I can see some of the other fabric combinations quilters are using for this mystery. I might even see some coral fabrics that I like:)

Looks like you are making good progress. I am following this mystery too, and it is my first one that I am actually participating in. I haven't made much progress, but I am making fewer blocks because I am making a wallhanging size, although the large size is very tempting.

Have fun with the mystery. :) I have made two in the past. I need to quilt them up!
