I Succumbed

Last year I passed it by because the colors were so out of my box that I couldn't pull them from stash. This year I just couldn't let it go. I thought I might, but no....I bit the bullet and started Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt, Allietaire, tonight.  Yes, despite the ten million UFOs awaiting my attention.

Forget the fact that she just published Clue 5, and I am just starting. I did pull the fabrics from my stash when she first announced them....

And I added the gray constant and 1/2 yard each of red and gold the week before Christmas...,
I was pleased that I would be using lots of stash, and I like the colors this year.
And even though I haven't started (as many folks admit that they haven't either), I have been following the FB group and gleaning some wonderful tips that will help me with this quilt and quilting in general. There are all levels of quilters in the group, and no question is too fundamental.

I have 160 of the required 294 half square triangles in Clue 1 finished. And they measure 2". Woohoo!!!
Off to stitch a few more before bedtime.

Ain't it the truth LOL...

Take care,


  1. Jennie, I see you and I shopped at the same fabric store about the same year and bought the same cottons. I think that black and tan might still be in my stash but not sure since I've been going thru the cottons and giving them away.

  2. Stitch what makes you happy! :-)
    Your start is looking great!
    Happy New Year!
