Mystery Quilt Week Two

It's the second week of the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt! This week we have a clue that not only can be a tricky block to make correctly...we have to make a lot of them!

With my broken arm still healing, cutting remains a challenge. I have no stamina. Three full days into this clue (plus some) and I am still cutting my pieces!

Flying Geese

I have all the peach/melon fabrics cut and I'm starting on the neutrals. The colors are so lovely. I did grab a few scrap fabrics and sewed a test block to make sure what method I wanted to use. Since I am so slow this year, I think I will do the tried-and-true line-drawing-on-squares rather than try the folded corners ruler. I did buy the ruler but will save learning it for another time.


I'm terribly pleased with the finished first clue. They are just so wonderful! The aqua/turquoise goes so well with the peach/melon. This is going to be a beautiful quilt.

You can join in too! All the instructions are free on Bonnie's blog but it's only free until about February, then you would have to purchase. You can download the all the clues each week and save them, even if you don't have time now to start it.

I'm linking up to Mystery Sunday Link Up, part 2.

Thank you for visiting my blog today!

I don't know how you do that at all with your arm still healing. That is going to be quite lovely when it is done. xo Diana

Oh! You've got some really fun fabric choices in the mix. Sounds like you need a Cutting Assistant, though!!

Well, I somehow managed to miss the fact that you broke your arm. In looking back through your posts--I see that it was in October when we were out in California for my son's wedding and then on to Hawaii so I wasn't reading any blogs at all. I'm so sorry, Sharon--those photos of the bruises and scrapes look very painful. But, I'm glad to read that you are recovering and able to sew again!

Your colors are such fun in this new quilt--can't wait to watch it grow :)

Your quilting is so stunning that you are almost tempting me to try a quilt.
