    She is starting a new mystery quilt and I'm going through my scraps and fabrics using every shade of four colors I can find. I'm low on neutrals so I'm heading to Goodwill for men's shirts after I vote today. If you haven't made a Bonnie mystery, try it. Her quilts are designed to use up any and all scraps. With this mystery she says it's a total clean out of your scraps!

    I'm planning on doing this one, I've got tons of green and reds but will need to probably find some more pinks. Looks like fun.!

    Thank you for the link for this. It sounds like it should be a fun quilt to do and rid some of the scrappy stash that's been building up and overflowing. I'm considering it too. :D

    I would love to try a mystery quilt, but this one looks too scrappy for me. I am not a big fan of scrappy quilts and I especially don't want to make one when I don't know what it is going to look like ahead of time. I think I will pass on this one.

    I figure it's using up scraps so what difference does it make if it out of my usual range of like. At least I'll have a quilt made and not a pile of scraps and I know someone will love the finished quilt and claim it.

    I have never done a mystery quilt. I donate a lot of quilts for charity auctions & raffles, so this sounds like a great way to use up some of the MANY scraps I have. I'm in!

    Part of the mystrey is not knowing what the pattern is until you are done. Remember if you don't like it you can always sell it or give it away to charity. Since Bonnie says this is a BIG quilt you could even cut (divide) it in half and make two charity quilts.

    This will be my third mystery quilt and I have never been disappointed. In fact I just gave one to my BIL and his new wife for a wedding gift.

    This sounds like fun. Does she charge for the instructions? I can't find the right place to click to say I want the instrutions. Need your help.

    In the very first post of this topic, they provide the link. Just click on it and it will take you to her website. Right now she is just giving us the fabrics we need. She will post instructions about once a week starting November 19. Let me know if you can't find it.

    You can sign up at her Yahoo group for updates, but she will post the directions on her web site at quiltville.com

    Please check out her quilts on her site. She has many patterns there for free... She uses many fabrics of the same color family and they are beautiful..
    You can print them out and not start it until the last clue has been uploaded, but you should know that once the quilt is all on the web, it will not be on for long, like her others. This one will be going in her next book, so it will be coming off the web site. So print it while you can and decide later if you want to make it.. It will be a large quilt. Bonnie says, it uses up more scraps that way..
    I love her quilts. I took a class with her at Hersey, PA this summer. I have made two "Crumb" quilts already and a "Boxy Star" and I have started cutting for the "Chunky Churndash" Only a lap size, but I am using those scraps....

    She will post the clues as she has a chance. No set date and you work at your own pace. All the parts will be on her blog and she will have a link to a printer friendly page. Check her blog when you get ready to start the next step.

    So here's the fabric I've gathered for Bonnie's new mystery. I've never done one of hers before so I'm really looking forward to it. I've never thought of using pinks and greens together before, so it'll be interesting to see whether I like it when it's done or not... LOL

    Anyone else want to post piccies of what they are going to do?

    I've decided to do the quilt also. Have looked at my fabric and I have quite a few choices in my stash. I have not brought any of them out yet, thought I would wait a little longer. She mentioned we would be using strips too. Should be fun.

    I have so many scraps, I'm hoping to whittle them down to a manageable size. Can't wait!
