    Gardengal..thank you. Last year was my first Bonnie Hunter mystery and I changed the colors mainly because I try to work all from stash and not buy new fabrics, and last year, I had an abundance of reds, greens and browns, so I used them and I loved the end result. So this year, although I love Bonnie's colors, I just don't have enough of them. I do have some of this blue fabric that I've been yearning to get rid of as it is not my favorite and being that yellows and oranges are my favorite colors, I have enough of them. So the blue, oranges and yellows theme was born. I am using a single cream fabric for my background and thinking about a lighter brown for the grey, but since we are done with that one, I am gonna wait on making them.

    Love your colours Candi and great idea to wait and audition a constant. I went with Bonnies colours which are my favourites anyway. Really pleased with the way it is coming along, first time I have been able to keep up.

    I am not as brave yet and did mine in the colors Bonnie selected. But I have caught up and can now relax.

    I love what everyone is doing. I didn't work on step 3 at all, so I'm really behind. Hope to catch up this weekend.

    Step 4 is up: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/ She states this is an easy step since we are getting close to Christmas, but really? 64 flying geese is easy?!?!?! Not in my book. But I am enjoying the mystery of all this.

    :-) My first Bonnie mystery quilt was Roll, Roll, Cotton Boll from 2 years ago. One of the steps was to sew 600 red and neutral HSTs. My reaction was disbelief...then... well, ok, if Bonnie says to do I better do it.

    If I had seen a pattern like that in a magazine I would have skipped right past it! Now I really like this kind of thing!

    When you are pressing the flying geese, do you press towards the outside triangles or the big triangle to get the best looking flying geese?

    you press toward the outside wings of the geese. Remember to be gentle and press the seam only with the tip of your iron or the wing will go all cockeyed. Have fun.

    Yeah the clue is up. Will do this on MOnday. I did not cut the two green pieces because I figured that I have so many beautiful green I couldn't choose and I figure that they would be somewhere near the center so I am waiting to see where they belong. But I am excited that we also get to cut up the green. I love the green.

    Life is good.

    Easy Street Step 4

    I've finished step 4!
    I love the colors Bonnie chose for this quilt - my pic is a bit dark, but I've been able to stay on top of each clue for this one!

    Oh pj! Do you think this is our block? I love it! I helped my daughter move over the weekend but managed to cut half of my tris for my geese. I can't wait to get sewing.

    Sheri - just having fun with placement - there are so many possibilities, and it sounds like we're about 1/2 way through the mystery - lots more fun to have!
    As I'm working on this, I'm also doing a spiderweb, no mystery there, just more of the same blocks to do, but enjoying that too!

    I liked the Hobbit but did not like the ending...leaving us hanging there. Oh well. I have finished all my clues. But I am going to visit my sister and so I will not be able to do anything until after Christmas. All of you have a Merry Christmas.

    Merry Christmas to you too!!! I saw the Hobbit Monday. LOVED it. They made it into two movies so the second half comes out next year... And a third of other Tolkin mirth the year after, so I hear...

    It's Friday & I just downloaded the next part of the mystery. I have gotten behind some.(geese) I have the 4 patches & geese w/white wings done. Also the white 2 x 3 1/2" rectangles. Torn about whether to skip the other geese & go back to them later. Not sure I have enough of the Turquoise fabric! I'm also waiting on the greens as I am substituting either a dark yellow or a dark orange.

    Well, I am almost done with step 5. All I have to do is finish pressing and squaring off the blocks. I did add one more step to mine though because I just couldn't throw away all those cute little triangles. After sewing the squares on my block, I went back and did another seam to connect the small triangles before I cut them off. It made it a little quicker for me than trying to sew the triangles and having to worry about the bias. They will trim down to a nice 1 1/5" unfinished. Thinking they might make a cute little miniature when they are all done.
