Allietare! Bonnie Hunter Mystery 2015

Bonnie Hunter has started her latest mystery quilt.  The first clue was released Friday morning. I just finished pressing my 320 half-square triangle units.  Only 294 are required but I plan to make the finished quilt a little larger so I'm making extra units as we go.

The address below will take you to Bonnie page that shows progress made on clue one.  It's fun to see people participate from around the world.

Last year my friend used Halloween fabrics and made a quilt to use during October.  I decided then that this year I was going to make my mystery quilt one that could be used during December.  Of course this year Bonnie decided to make the quilt a little smaller so I will need to extend the size on my own.  I'm always a little out of step!

I've started listening to audio books while in the studio and I find this keeps me working.  I try and select books that don't require a lot of focus, although sometimes I do have to go back and pick up what I missed.

I'm using a green fabric in place of Bonnie's gray.

These are the fabrics I'm using.  I ended up adding a few more "neutrals"
and do have more reds available.

Thanks for checking in.


  1. Oh! A holiday quilt? I hadn't consider that sort of theme, but it appears that your choice will work very well. Hmm... perhaps I should have another look through my stash!

  2. SEW much fun to do these Bonnie mysteries!

  3. Looks good. I didn't realize it was green. I'm going to follow you now.

  4. Love the idea of a Christmas-themed quilt. But it wouldn't work too well on this side of the world. We don't usually need more warmth at Christmas time!

    I'm impressed that you are making yours bigger than Bonnie's!

  5. Yea! I like the green with the rest of the colors.

  6. I like the idea of a Christmas quilt. Will be watching to see how this turns out!

  7. Really like your Christmas theme. I almost did that myself and then switched back-but am using mossy greens rather than gray.

  8. Your colors are beautiful. Love the grey you have used in those little HST. I look forward to seeing your MQ come together.
