Just the other day Jenny left a comment that said, “Hi Jo! I have loved your blog ever since I first found it through moda bakeshop :). Are you doing the bonnie hunter mystery this year? And if so are you planning on doing the finish up of ufo’s before it starts? It helped me sooo much last year :) plus I loved seeing what people made.”
Well Jenny, I was thinking about it and your note prompted me to say YES and YES!!
For those of you who don’t know, last year my friend Nell and I decided that we wanted to finish up a Bonnie Hunter UFO project before her new mystery started. We figured some of our blog readers might want to do the same so we issued a challenge. It was…Pick a Bonnie Hunter quilt that you have started and try to make some progress on it each week, working on it until the first clue of the new mystery is revealed in November. They I put up a linky and bloggers linked up…those without blogs sent me a photo of their progress.
Last year I finished my quilt early….It was Stars over Shallotte.
I started working on another quilt, Smith Mountain Morning and got a ways on it too. I ended up finishing that one after the mystery but without the challenge, I am guessing it would still be in the UFO pile.
Nell and I both have Bonnie Hunter UFO projects still waiting to be finished, so lets do this again this year!! Goodness knows I have plenty of quilts in the UFO pile that are Bonnie quilts…there is Virginia Bound…
I have Rectangle Wrangle…
Blue Skies-I looked and can’t find it but I know it’s started. Maybe it’s at Kelli’s house.
I know I’d love to work on Pineapple Crazy but I know I’ll never get anywhere close to finishing it so I think I’ll pick a different one. In fact, I know which one I should pick….last year’s mystery, Celtic Solstice….Stop back on Wednesday and see what I ended up picking.
On Wednesday we can all share what we are going to do for our Bonnie challenge project-everyone gets to pick their own project. I’ll have a linky box for bloggers to link up and if you don’t have a blog, leave a comment in the comment section and tell us what project you’re working on.
