Easy Street Part 1
Mystery quilt with Bonnie Hunter, like I needed to start another project. My convincing argument is that while I am busy sewing samples for next years classes (so excited about them), I needed something different to sew and that did not need me to do maths or any other hard thinking. Plus I do use now Bonnie's Leader and Enders process and am in that rhythm and needed something for these. So this Mystery quilt is my Leader/ Ender project
My colours choices are similar to Bonnie's, but mine has a Christmas twist. I have kept the aqua and green but have changed the purple to red. I am using grey but not as a single fabric, I have collected a few different prints and love the variety. My background is just solid white, Bonnie's is a variety of white with black print fabrics.
I have started Part 1 but not all that is required. I am supposed to make about 180-190 4 patches with only 2 colours. Well over the weekend in between all other stuff, I managed to get 63 made. I do have about the same number cut ready to be sewn into 4 patches, but I feel i need more variety with my grey fabrics.
My plan is to get some of each part done, not all of it unless of course possible. I do want to make the whole quilt, because it is a big quilt and I can't seem to make smaller ones. I do need to collect some more fabrics for each colourway to get a good scrappy (controlled) feel, and hopefully done by Xmas (not stating which year though)
I am linking with Bonnie's blog, so go over and check out all the other work being done and the different takes on colour choices, I am at number 153 omg... love it
