So I am a long time fan of Bonnie Hunter’s mystery quilts. I’ve been making them for awhile.
There’s Carolina Christmas…
I also did Lazy Sunday the mystery that was in Quiltmaker.
Celtic Solstice is still in progress. It’s the first one that went into UFO status….but at least the top is done-now.
I’ve been wanting to go back and do the ones on her website but haven’t done that yet…maybe someday.
So do I start Grand Illusion? Part of me is screaming YES>>>YOU CAN’T MISS IT!!!!!! The other part of me is yelling NO>>>Control yourself..you can’t do everything all the time!!!! Besides you have a house that you want to get moved into!!!!
So what do I do…I buy fabric just in case I can’t resist the temptation.
If the first clue starts out with something fun like make 100-4 patches, you can bet that I’ll be in. I can’t resist a four patch. If the first clue starts out with make 1898 half square triangles (you never know with a Bonnie mystery)…I might think about it first but then I’ll likely be cutting away again. Oh UGH. Who am I kidding…I can’t resist temptation even if it means getting up 15 minutes earlier each day to try to get at least part of the blocks done I’ll likely do it.
I am just no good at the peer pressure of mystery quilt sewing. It’s easier to just go with the temptation…so stay tuned. Can I resist? And by the way, what’s with me doing this in brights?? I never go with brights. I always do them in Civil War reproductions instead….Maybe I’m ill!?!?!..or maybe I’ll change my mind at the last minute! It’s happened before!
