I didn't think I would be starting Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt with the rest of the world because I was supposed to be on a beach in Mexico, but a "Series of Unfortunate Events" allowed me to join the fun (read more here).
My fabrics have been chosen - all from my stash. I still need to get the yellow constant, but I am using these beautiful Jason Yenter prints I bought late last year. I'm going to substitute the pastels for the neutrals (and I still want to get a soft blue), and I'm using blue instead of the aqua. The yellow I want to get is a creamy yellow, like butter, which is in the backing fabric on the bottom and in the background of the top piece of pink fabric. I have 4 different tone-on-tone blacks/dark greys, including one that has a cat and one that has sharks!
I've done all the cutting for the first step, with the exception of the yellow. It's not a problem because until I get all my Christmas sewing done, these will be my leader/ender project.
I will be piecing on my 1937 Featherweight that I acquired thanks to Bonnie introducing me to vintage machines. I do the majority of my sewing on this little beauty!
Last night, I was ready to start! I've started the 5 pillowcases I need to make for Christmas and in between, I fed those HST through the machine!
I had 20 done in no time! Thanks, Bonnie, for another beautiful mystery quilt. I can't wait to see the reveal!
Linking up to Bonnie's Monday Link Up - check it out to see how many others are participating this year!
