My fabric picks for Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt 2011

Soooo the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt starts November 18th! We got the first clue last week with what fabrics we should pull from our scrap piles.  I decided to go with blue and pink as my main two colors.  I have enough scraps of those to work with.

Digging through my string box I quickly found out my pink strings were nonexistant. I have plenty of blue strings. I’ll just have to cut up some pink scraps into strings so I can do the string blocks.  That is good though – it’ll give me the leeway to cut up some “ugly” pinks in my fabric closet and put them into string blocks so I don’t have to look at them anymore.  

I’m sure I’ll end up with lots of strings as I’m cutting fabric for the quilt anyway. Give me something to work on over Christmas break for sure!  Yay I’m so excited.  I’ve never done one of her mysteries before so this should be a learning experience.  I lucked out and bought both rulers a few months ago when they went on sale.

What did you pick to use for the mystery quilt?

    Hi Katie,
    I love to listen to your podcasts while I sew. I'm also doing the mystery quilt. I am a member of the Yahoo group and watched while everyone last year did the Roll Roll Cotton mystery quilt. This year I decided – I'M IN! I think I'm going to do red, green and yellow. I plan on pulling it all together this week. I had one ruler and picked up the other one yesterday.
