Repeat, Not Doing Bonnie's Mystery
For new readers, Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville's Quips and Snips hosts a mystery quilt-along in the weeks between Thanksgiving and New Years Day. A clue is released each week on Friday and the following Monday there is a link-up to share progress.
I am NOT doing Bonnie's Mystery!
Pretty strong declaration for someone who made 120 neutral HSTs last weekend, huh?
I still have lots of UFOs as well as new projects in progress, so I made the decision not to play along this year. Instead, I will look at it as an extension of the Rainbow Scrap Challenge, using appropriately colored scraps with each clue until I run out of that color. I may or may not have enough units to make the quilt even at half scale. But, as Gayle at mangofeet said, Bonnie's units always fit together and I can use them in a design of my own, if necessary.
There's one problem, though ... I was working from memory and pulled 2-1/2" strips instead of 2". Big DUH! I could easily trim them down to the correct size, but the thought of wasting that much fabric hurts. OR, I could just make everything else bigger. If that plan requires high-level math, then I'll just use the neutral 4Ps as background for applique!
Hop over to Quiltville to see how others are keeping up with the mystery.
