I’ve started clue #3 for the Bonnie Hunter mystery. I’ve not gotten far though. Christmas busyness has come front and center. The Christmas cards had to get finished…
The cookies had to get made. Figuring out the final presents had to happen.
In between it all I managed to pull out the 2″ scrap bucket and see it there were any purples….Nope. Purple isn’t a color I use often.
I got my fabric from Whittles Fabrics. There were some purples in the selection but I wanted more so I dug in may fat quarters to come up with a few more. I had a little difficulty coming up with a selection of both lights and darks. In a perfect world, I’d like more variety but oh well, this will do.
I haven’t found time to start sewing them together but it will happen and I’m sure I’ll be done with the clue by Friday when the new clue comes out. I still get up early each morning and sew. These are the perfect project for some early morning…or late evening sewing. I adore 4 patches. Few things make me happier to sew than 4 patches.
I am getting a little nervous with these clues though. This mystery is starting to remind me of Easy Street. We sewed really easy clues and then WHAM. We were done with the easy clues and were putting blocks together that weren’t that easy to assemble. It was easy to twist and turn the pieces and like a fool, that year I made TWO mystery quilts at the same time because the clues were so easy. We’ll see….part of the fun is the anticipation!
