    Quiltville mystery patterns

    I was trying to figure out how to get the En Provence pattern and how to be notified of the next mystery quilt pattern from Quiltville.com. I read the pattern was to disappear but what of the previous mystery patterns? Is there an email list to sign up on?

    I believe once the are gone you won't be able to get them until they are published in her book a dew years later

    She starts the mystery the Friday after Thanksgiving. The latest mysteries have been made into digital patterns for her store and the older ones are in books like Dolyphyngyrl wrote http://quiltville.com/shop.html#!/Di...=0&sort=normal

    follow her blog and in Oct she will post what colors she is using for the upcoming mystery http://quiltville.blogspot.com/

    Bonnie Hunter has, as mentioned, makes the Mystery pattern available for a brief period of time - I think 5 or 6 months, then removes it as it will be published in one of her books. More recently, with the last 1 or 2 mysteries, she is making them available for purchase after a brief period of time from her website listed in other posts.

    You can download digital patterns for sale from her site.(click on shop first..then digital patterns) There are 4 previous mysteries on there at present. Celtic Solstice, En Provence, Allietare and Grand Illusion. Under the free pattern site , scroll down to the bottom of the page. She tells you where the other mysteries are published. Lots of free patterns that are lovely too! I just finished a top of her Scrappy Trip Around the World:

    Mystery quilts are so much fun!!

    I came in way late. I was helped by someone on this board, go to her main website: Hit Shop. Then hit Digital Patterns and find the one you want. They were only $8.00 each. Just how much fun can you really have for $8.00?

    Check out her web site and look at free patterns, if it is still free it will be there. Sh also had several others there. Hope this helps.

    I believe if you go to the Quiltville Shop and click on the various book titles, they list the patterns contained in the book. You could search out previous mysteries this way, if you know the names of the mystery.

    I think some of her earlier Mystery Quilts are available as free patterns on her website now. Her later ones are in books.

    En Provence is available for sale w/digital download. Hope to see you on the Mystery Train come Black Friday. Also if you are on Facebook you can follow all her stuff on either the Quiltville page and/or the Quiltville Open Studio.

    Can anyone help me to understand why Bonnie Hunter releases her mysteries at the beginning of the busiest season of the year? I would so love to find them on January 1 instead of the day after Thanksgiving!

    While I know I could start mine on January 1, I hate feeling like I'm already behind. (Guess that's my problem, eh?)

    Sushi, I have done three of the last four Bonnie mysteries. It is my understanding that this is a good time for Bonnie because she is taking some down time for the holidays and if there are any problems with the clues, Bonnie can fix them as opposed to being on the road and trying to do it.

    Also, from reading mystery participants' comments, there are many who thank her for getting them through the holidays. They have no family or have lost loved ones and the mystery gives them something to occupy their time during the holidays.

    Sewingitall, as others said, in mid October to late October, Bonnie announces the colors and the day after Thanksgiving, the first clue is given. Start checking her blog in October. I am on Facebook so I get her blog notices and anxiously wait for the colors and then that first clue. I never can keep up but that is okay with me. Finished making all the En Provence "pieces" in February, going to work on sewing the blocks together this summer.

    Yes, Bonnie does the mystery at the holidays because it's a sad time for many due to loss of loved ones, and this gives people something fun to be involved in during what would otherwise be a difficult time. I think it makes things crazy for a lot of people, but in a way, that's part of the fun.

    You can download the pattern each time it is posted and save it or print it out to start whenever you choose. If you want it to remain a mystery, just don't look at the last part until you finish all the other parts.
