The name of the mystery is called Grand Illusion. Bonnie released the color palette information earlier this week and paint chips are flying off the shelf! Bonnie started using the color chips last year to give people a better idea of the colors she’s using in her quilts, and I think it’s a great idea.
Don’t know what a mystery quilt is? That’s when you make a quilt without knowing what the design is before you start. Drives me crazy! However, all of Bonnie’s quilts are amazing so it’s another way to challenge myself. I’ve followed along with her mysteries for the past 4 years but never have completed one. Maybe this will be the year!
The first clue to the mystery will be released on Friday, November 28th, 2014. You don’t need to be a member of the Yahoo Group to follow the clues, but you will get an email notification that way and it can be fun to see everyone’s progress. Otherwise, just check the website every week.
Hey, in case you haven’t seen it, Bonnie Hunter has a giveaway on her blog for the Quiltmaker’s 100 Blocks Volume 5 issue. She’s got a block in there called Talking Turkey, and it’s pretty fabulous!
Go to her blog to enter the giveaway, she’s drawing today, Suncay May 6th!
Have you all seen the new mystery quilt that Bonnie Hunter is running again this year? I want to participate, but I’m stuck on my colors! I love brights, but they don’t go with anything in my house; DH sort of over-ruled that idea! Ha!
So, we have all of the earth colors and I’m still trying to figure out what I can pull together that will work in the living room, and will be a quilt he’ll actually use. All of this indecision, and the third step is already posted!
…not to mention that I need to make a Bronco quilt for a customer before Christmas, and complete 2 other small customer quilts!
