I took my untrimmed Mystery quilt blocks to my Quilting group yesterday and was busy trimming them (a good job to do in company, I find, as the chatter and fun going on around me make it much more bearable!) when a new member came up to me and said, ‘ Is that the Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt?’ She’d recognised Bonnie’s colour scheme and the blocks, I was pleased 🙂
I’ve just about made all the blocks now and the tedious trimming process is happening. I really should have trimmed as I went – lesson learnt!
Monday was the opportunity for folk who were making the quilt to post their finished tops on Bonnie’s blog and, my word, what a lovely variety of tops have been made. One lady has not only pieced her top but layered it and quilted it as well – very impressed. Why not pop along and have a look – just here.
I’ve only made one block and a few sashing strips so far. I want to try and get all my points right so I shall be going slowly. But I love how it’s turning out.
There’s still a lot to do but there’s no rush.
At Christmas my family all received plant pots containing an Amaryllis bulb so we decided on a light-hearted (!) competition to see whose bulb could flower first.
This is mine…
… so far I’m last!
Until next time,
