Default Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt 2017 - En Provence

Ready....Set.....Go! The Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt 2016 has begun. She posted the Introduction today on her blog and you can find that here: http://quiltville.blogspot.com/p/en-...e-mystery.html

This year's colors were inspired by Bonnie's trip to Aix en Provence, France and they are vibrant shades of purple, green, yellow and magenta, as well as all those neutrals she uses to tie things together. The first clue will go live on Friday, November 25. Subsequent clues will be posted on her blog every Friday after that until the reveal clue. As always, she has not stated how many clues there will be but previous quilts have averaged 6 clues and finished the first week of January. If you are really busy during the holiday season, just download the printable version/PDF of each clue so you can work on it later. Keep in mind that the clues are taken off the blog on February 1, 2017 and will be available only by purchasing a digital download after that date.

This is the place to post comments and photos of your fabric choices and sewing progress as we take this mini-trip to France with Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt. I'm looking forward to another great sharing thread while we all take this journey.

COPYRIGHT REMINDER: Please do not re-post copies of any of the clues for the mystery quilt and/or photos of work that is not your own.

First poster! Can't decide on fabrics for this year, pinks and purples are just not in my stash much.

I am so excited about this mystery. I've never worked with this color combo before and didn't think I had these colors but... I did! I need about 4 fat quarters of green and I'm there. Hoping to go shopping today and finish my gatherings.
Stash diving is exhausting! Lol

Thanks Miss Rita for getting us going again this year! One of the constants in life, along with the changing of the seasons, is you leading the way on the BH Mystery!! Looking forward to another great few months of comments and pictures!!

I picked up 2 extra sets of color chips. If anyone needs them and does not have a handy Lowes, PM me and I will put in mail to you. First 2 requests get them.

Thanks for starting this thread again! I am looking forward to this year's mystery. These colors may be a challenge for me, but I learned a lot from the process last year. Hope to go get my paint chips soon!

Does anyone see a problem with these? The yellow with the small red apples? The pink too dark?

ETA: Sorry it's so big

I am really excited to try one of Bonnie's Mystery Quilts! Although I love bright colours, I am going to try something different for this quilt, I am thinking blue, green and purple.

I have a question for the second bonnie hunter ruler. Does anyone know if it is required? With shipping and exchange it would cost me $45+tax. I'm not sure that I can justify that for a ruler.
