Last Day of November

So remember those strips from my last post? I turned them into 4 patches for the newest mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter, it's called Good Fortune. I really enjoyed making these.

There were a lot to make! I chose the aqua/blue colors. This was clue number 1.

Today was clue number 2 and the instructions were to make half square triangles. I chose red. I am not doing her color suggestions but going my own way and using up my scraps.

All these need to be cut into strips and this does not include the lights! I like the repetitiveness of the cutting, sewing and pressing. It's mindless.

I have only played with this ruler once and decided to give it a try. It was the exact size I needed. It's amazing how many things we collect that we don't use........

You can use it to cut up the strips and cut out the triangles.

Layer the light and dark right sides together and cut them out. The non-slip grip helps to keep it in place.

It's magic! You can get 10 out of a strip and they are very accurate. I was very happy with the results.

I am also working on another mystery quilt for my guild, I will tell you about this in the months to come.

It's going to be cute! I have about 20 members who want to make it. I can't wait to see what they all come up with.



  1. Well that is going to be the cutest GF quilt! Thanks for sharing the tool, it's new to me, on my list of must haves.

  2. It’s fun to watch the mystery unfold. I love doing a Bonnie Hunter quilt but never done a mystery quilt.

  3. Love the selection of colors you chose so far for the mystery quilt! I am changing mine too, as usual. I love seeing all the different color combos. That ruler looks like it comes in handy for lots of HSTs. Hmmm...

  4. what a neat ruler. I
    Oh your colors are so you and are going to be great!
    2 mysteries what fun. Mindless cutting and sewing is soothing to the soul.


I love to read your comments, they make my day!
