Keeping up with the mystery!!

 As you probably know, Bonnie Hunter from Quiltville has a mystery going on!!  I have finished the first clue, above.  296 half square triangles of grey and neutral.  TADA!!  That was fun!!  Actually there are close to 350 there...so I have extras for my yearly "leftovers from the mystery" little quilt!
I am making progress on the Ocean quilt, inspired by Quilty Folk (Audrey!)  She made the most amazing scrappy quilt, and I have been saving these strings for a long time...time to GETERDUN!!   With her gracious permission, I am making a quilt like hers...and yet very unlike hers, too.   I am loving this so far, but it does not photograph well...needs some natural light for those pretty colors to shine through.





Have a great day, one and all!  I am linking up to Quiltville, with all the other zillion people making the mystery quilt!!

I'll be watching your progress on the mystery quilt. I love seeing how similar yet different they are.

I've only done one B Hunter mystery and kept up with it the whole time! It was the best way to do it, IMHO. Way to sew!
Love your ocean blue string top!!

I bought some gray fabric yesterday (gray is not in my stash, because I don't like it) just in case I decide to make this. If I do, it won't be till January. My gray is a blue/gray, and I'll change the black to dark blues.
