    Good morning ladies. Can I say... Wow wow! All y'all's are looking so wonderful! I love the colors and great idea for the wall hanging. This is so fun. I finished all my first 16 blocks and one of the last 9...have to rip a naughty little 4patch. It did a jig and is pointed in the wrong direction now... I'm actually tempted to leave it but I've got enough (cough) uniqueness. He he... The colors aren't true in the first pic. It was dark and I had to use my phone flash.

    Ok. Time to finish! (The next 8 squares at least.)

    Dolly's sister...good progress.
    Skowron5...how cheery as a wall hanging. The pattern still shows up very nicely.
    SheriR...great job of selecting alternate colors. They do play well together.
    Now to see if I can finish the last few blocks, then I will have to try to find enough floor space to lay it out on to determine final placement before sewing everything together. This is a BIG quilt.

    It's so fun to look here and go, "ooh, I have that fabric in my quilt!" And Candi, I love the way your orange stands out.

    I promised photos yesterday, but got so carried away sewing blocks that I finished them all and never got the photos posted. So here they are. The lighting is a bit dim, sorry. I used my border facric in the center of the A squares rather than the pink. A lot of my pinks were a little more subdued than the deep purples Bonnie used. I think mine looks better with those punches of the dark print rather than the pink. Also the black print pulls out the black in the background fabrics. Still contemplating exactly how I want my borders. Decisions, decisions.

    And, yes, I know the corner 4-patches in my A blocks are turned the "wrong" way. As I was laying the units out, I noticed I had turned a few the wrong way and decided I liked mine better that way. Artistic license?

    Scrap lady, I love what you've done. Especially using your border fab as your centers. Bravo!

    Scraplady - that border fabric is wonderful, it picks up all the colors in your quilt! Great job!

    OOOOh!! Love everyone's quilts, they're terrific!! I didn't see the corrections in #4 or #6 -- Hope it's not going to take too much fabric to make the changes.

    What were the corrections in #4 and #6? I didn't see them either.

    @char7439: I am only aware of the part 6 correction, "***Note*** thanks to some helpful elves, it was pointed out that we need 19 5-1/2" squares cut with an X, and Part 6 only listed 16."

    Clue number 6, cut 19 (bonnie's green) 5.5" squares (I thought these are the centers of the secondary blocks. I chose to piece mine instead. I'll be in trouble if we were supposed to cut them up
    Clue number 4, instead of 145 (bonnie's green) squares it should be 165.

    I've began assembling this morning on my Horizon 8900, what a dream machine.
    I pieced all the components on a 1947 White Rotary. Also a very nice machine. It just won't milk the cows and do the laundry like the 8900...

    The green squares in clue six are to be cut into 4 triangles that are used for the ends of the rows or setting triangles. You will need them to do clue 7.

    Thanks for the info. I guess I won't be using extra fabric after all.

    Here are my first two blocks Name:  bonnie blocks.JPG

    This is my first quilt with such little pieces and I am really enjoying it. I love all of the colour ways I've seen so far I think you could do some really pretty quilts with this pattern. It's also my first Bonnie Hunter quilt and I'm definitly going to try more of her quilts. I have done the 4 small triangles and 1 big triangle so this may take a while but I'm taking my time with it between another mystery quilt and a wall hanging I'm working on.
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    So with kids visiting for Christmas and all THAT... I actually finished sewing all the sections.

    4 corners = 80 pieces
    12 tri's = 444 pieces
    16 Block A = 1,232 pieces
    9 Block B = 621 pieces
    Total pieces = 2,377

    It's to big for any wall I have to pin it up on so here is 1/4. It measures 46" square. My colors are purple, red, mustard, cream, and brown Batiks. I love it! Maybe tomorrow I can fix a spot to pin the whole thing up, make sure I like my block placements, and sew her up. I'm not sure on borders. I think my brown will be one. I have a great plan for my back. My sweet QB friend (Fraew) is helping me design it, and I need to purchase more cream as I used nearly every scrap of the 14 different FQ's I bought.

    OMG SheriR, what a great fall quilt that will make! So gorgeous! Congratulations on being almost done! I think the brown would be perfect for the first border as it will nicely bring out the brown squares and frame the quilt.

    I finally finished Step 7, and laid out Block A on my display wall. It took me forever to get just one laid out. I kept looking at the photo, then choosing my pieces, then rechecking the photo to make sure everything was going in the right direction. I need to cut the purple squares, then I can start sewing it together tomorrow. I'm hoping after I get one done, it will go faster with the others!

    @SheriR: I want that! It's so pretty. High 5 girl!
    @JeanieG: You and I seem to be on the same pace. I finally finished step 7 and just laid out 1 of each of the blocks. Look at picture, select a block; look at picture, select a block and repeat. I have never felt so quilt challenged in my life. Whew! Time for bed.

    These are really gorgeous. So fun sharing this experience with you all.

    Quilt addiction....I like the way your A block looks. You've turned the half square triangle to go out instead of in but I think it's a happy accident. It gives an entirely new look!
    I laid out my blocks on the floor and have the placement as good as I can get it and can start assembly any time. Have a couple of other projects with deadlines but want to get this together before it becomes a UFO. I'm planning to do Bonnie's next mystery quilt in Quiltmaker. I like her process.

    When you are sewing the triangles together....do you start with the largest row and then work down to the smallest?

    I've got mine pinned to my sons video wall. He hung a big white sheet up and uses projector when he plays. The Murphy bed is down so I can't get a straight front picture but I think you see it well enough. I put it up yesterday afternoon then had to clean my sewing stuff up because we had company coming for dinner. (Who scheduled THAT in the middle of my crucial mystery sewing???)

    Anyway. I plan on starting at the top left corner. I'll sew tri/block/tri and add the corner. I think I'll sew all the rows then sew the rows together, again starting at the top. I can't sew it until tonight because I must drive to the city and meet Princess. She goes back to college tomorrow so we've got an afternoon planned of shopping girly fun!

    Oh and I have to fix three little 4patches as they seem to be turned the wrong way...How did THAT happen...

    Love it SheriR!

    @xtgirl: I struggled with what to do with the tris. I wish I had waited to do them after my blocks so I would know which way to sew them up. Having said that, my tris are done but I have no shame in taking them apart after I finish my blocks.
