It’s mystery time! On Ringo Lake is coming from Bonnie Hunter!

Quiltville's Quips & Snips
It’s that time of year again!  Who’s doing Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilt this year?  Every year I tell myself NOT to do the mystery because I’ve still got 3 of them hanging out in various stages in my WIP/UFO piles.  And every year I get super excited as Black Friday approaches.  I look forward to spending the next few weeks putting cutting and sewing hundreds of pieces together.  I look forward to the community and the peacefulness of chain piecing.
I’ve participated in Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilts for the last 5 years.
From 2012, here’s Easy Street:

My son claimed it.

Here’s 2013’s – Celtic Solstice

Celtic Solstice

The top is done but I still need to get the back together and then I need to quilt it.  This is a LARGE quilt at 115″ x 115″.  I think it is too big for the long arm I usually rent over at Baron’s.  So I’m debating whether I should send it over to the quilter.  It’s going to cost a lot and that’s why I’m hesitating on getting that finished.

I frogged the mystery quilt from 2014, which was Grand Illusions.  I admit I didn’t like how this one turned out.  That’s okay. Everyone doesn’t have to like everything.  I liked the previous 2 and I liked the last 2 so I frogged it.  I was sad about the fabric but I’ve let that go.

Allietare!  was from 2015 and I haven’t worked on it since 2015.  I love how it turned out and I love the little bit of work I did on it.  So it’s hanging out until I get to it.

2 sets done

En Provence  – was last year’s mystery and I’ve got these separated in 3 bins.  I can’t remember why but like Allietare I loved it when it was revealed and I love the work I’ve done so far.  And so it’s waiting for me to spend time with it.

So I really should not start another one.  But I’m going to anyway.  🙂

~Happy quilting!
