The Day After

Yesterday was my birthday and it was a busy day. I wanted to try and get all my blocks for the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt called, Good Fortune done but it didn't happen. Today clue number 4 was released and I am feeling the pressure! They look to be easier so I think I will be caught up soon.

In some ways this is a good way to work on any scrap quilt. Sewing  them into "bite size" pieces and giving yourself a deadline, makes it go pretty fast. You can go at your own pace but then it will become another UFO (I know myself!) . I have never done this type of mystery quilt before but so far it is fun! One of the things I enjoy is her instructions on how to cut and sew things, you can always learn something new!

I got some art supplies from my husband and am going to try some new things, stay tuned!



  1. Happy Birthday! Sewing on scrap quilts is one of lifes greatest joys.:)

  2. Happy belated birthday! Deadlines are good.awaiting to see what this chalk and other supplies from .bob will lead to.

  3. Glad to hear you had a great day sewing the mystery! I'm saving the steps and plan to tackle it in January after company is gone. Love your colors! Looking forward to the new art projects!

  4. Happy Day when you get to sew - you've made a zillion little blocks! are you going to wait to see the quilt before you put them all together?
    what are you going to make??? curious...

  5. Oh my, I just love the yellow in that basket of scrappy color! Happy birthday!

  6. Gorgeous Gorgeous Gorgeous fabric choice for this mystery!

  7. How are you keeping up by now? I joined in ONE of Bonnie's mystery quilts, and though I kept up, it was gruesome. It's such a difficult time of year with all the demands that are competing for attention. Still, I know exactly what you mean about using up scraps! The best motivation for getting those bits in order, and then actually using them, is something like this. Yours is looking really good! I hope you find a little more sewing time now that the Christmas rush is over.

  8. hmph why didn't I get your post by email?? Happy year, since I'm late for the day. What will you do with the chalk?
