Waiting for a Clue…

Well it’s a new year and I have a new project!

I somehow got sucked into this year’s Quiltville mystery quilt.  I wasn’t even finished with the one from last year when Bonnie Hunter announced this year’s quilt called “Good Fortune” which was inspired by her trip to China last year.

At first I thought I would just dig through my stash and see if I had any of the right fabric colors … and I did.

Then I thought I would make my goal to get at least 1/3 of each step done … and I did that.

Then Christmas came along and it was the first time in 26 years that neither one of our kids was with us and I was feeling a little sad.  I suddenly had more time to go back and work on the steps that I hadn’t finished and it kept my mind off things.

I’m working as fast as I can on Part 7 right now.

And I’ve finished everything except Parts 3 & 4.

These little red & white 4-patches are from Part 1 and Part 7.

I was thrilled that I could clean out my scrap box for some parts of this.  I definitely had plenty of blue and red and tons of background fabrics.

I had to go out and buy some more orange so now I can finish Part 4 and I’m not sure if I have enough green but I think I probably do and I don’t mind if this quilt is really scrappy looking.

I’m just wondering how many more clues there are and what this quilt will look like.  I’ll keep you updated on my progress.

One thought on “Waiting for a Clue…

  1. A FANTASTIC way to use up some material!!!! Now you have a reason to replace your stash!!!! The important part is to have fun with the project. Sorry that your kids couldn’t be with you for Christmas.
