En Provence Top Complete & TQS BOM

Yea!!  I finished the top for the Bonnie Hunter 2016 Mystery - En Provence.  I changed out one color.  I used aqua blue rather than yellow.  As I did in 2013, I used a fabric to select colors, but that fabric does not appear on the front of the quilt.  I'm excited about how it turned out.  For the third year, friends and I have sewn in the new year.  A great start to a new year.

UPDATE:  I've started the ditch work for my quilt.  Yea!
Here's the  link to see what others accomplished in the mystery.

All the parts.
Finished!  I added an extra row in the border so it will finish 90 x 90 inches.
My "neutral" was white with black.  Looks gray here.

Two versions of the same quilt.  
The Quilt Show does a Block of the Month each year.  In previous years I have collected the patterns, but have never made the quilts.  This year, several friends and I have challenged ourselves to actually get it done.  I was originally  going to order the kit, but ended up finding other fabrics to use.

Background required 11 yards.  (white)

Happy 2017!

Thanks for checking in.


  1. Did you make two of them? WOW Love them both and I think I'll add an extra border to mine, also.

  2. Your aqua looks great! Very good choice!

  3. Getting it done. I can't wait to see how the Quilt Show BOM will look with your colors. Should be beautiful.

  4. Gorgeous! Can't wait to see your finish on the BOM.

  5. Your En Provence is gorgeous. I love your colors, and black and white fabrics are a favorite of mine too. Great colors for your Quilt show SAL.

  6. En Provence is lovely with the blue, and I really love your plan for the TQS BOM too. Very inspiring!
