Default Other mystery quilts Besides Bonnie Hunter

I was going to do Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, but decided not to. Now I have a hole in my life ;-).

Does anyone know about other mystery quilts out there right now that are really interesting? Preferably free ;-).

Thanks for ideas.

Do you know where it might be? I checked her web site and didn't find it.

Teresa, check out Edyta's blog. What she is doing is a quilt-along from her Patches of Blue book. You need her book and subscribe to the newsletter.

I see a lot on Facebook. There are a lot of sew a longs. Pat Sloan, Fat Quarter Shop, and other groups. Bonnie Hunter quilts all look the same with different colors to me. One scrappy big quilt is enough to last me for a long time.

I'm starting to understand why the Bonnie Hunter mystery is so popular. It's one of the few free ones ;-).

Thanks for the replies so far.

I hadn't done any of the Bonnie Hunter mysteries, and figured this was my big year! But I'm not feeling it this year either ;-).

Thank you for the ideas. I was on the Moda Blockheads for awhile, but they're a quilt along. I really wanted to do a mystery. I think Pat and FQS both are quiltalongs too.

I don't do them scrappy, and don't always follow her layout. I think mine look different from each other and definitely different then all the other BH quilts that year. I do agree they all have a similar look/feel though.

I saw 6 yards of background fabric, and said "hard pass". I don't want to waste that much of my precious backgrounds on seams, which I'm assuming is the reason why it calls for so much fabric. Of course, if done non-scrappy, it wouldn't take so much. I'm always curious to see how her mysteries turn out, and who knows, maybe I'd make a non-scrappy version after collecting all the steps.

I'm too stressed of a person for her quilts, anyway, ha-ha. And it's apparently all my fault, from what I hear, LOL.

But good old fashioned, interesting mysteries are few and far between these days, it seems. I know people need to make a living, so I can't get too upset with them for charging in some way. It's hard to pay for something, if I don't know what it's going to end up being. Maybe I should try Edyta.
