    Mine too, I needed something to take my mind off a medical thing. It was great good fun and I think I made the next 9 or 10 mysteries. I made a small Roll Roll after watching the horrific tsunami images from Japan that year.

    Good morning! What a cute unit.

    This will be a challenge for those doing dark background, to make sure there is adequate contrast between black and purple. That's why I decided to use blacks with a substantial amount of white. I think I'll be going scrappy on this one.

    KalamaQ, both of your Cotton Boll quilts are amazing! Thanks for sharing.

    Beautiful quilts, Kamala…

    Yesterday, I started feeling feverish and slept like crap last night…woke to a head cold so I’ll be sleeping a bit today. Maybe cut strips if I feel like it. Need a clearer head to make sure left/right units done accurately..lol..

    Enjoy your journey today with clue 2!!

    Black background will be amazing. I thought about doing a chambray background since I have another bolt of it but I’m already taking a chance with swapping purple for yellow and using a print fabric for orange. Playing with different colorways is half the fun in her mysteries..

    The new clue... what's your guess? Orange stars? Or orange star points?

    I'm afraid this one may look too much like my Ringo Lake quilt, which is primarily orange (not peach) and royal blue. But we shall see. I may wait another few clues before I chose colors.

    Just a heads up! Bonnie has already updated Clue 2 to add a photo to show what the finished units will look like. Yes, the orange triangles come to a point 1/4” below the fabric edge so that the points survive when sewn into the quilt top.

    I remember your Ringo Lake quilt SBG, loved your colors! Ringo Lake was the only mystery quilt I have made and I pretty much followed her color selection. If I decide to do this quillt, I plan to swap out the orange for chartreuse. I like how purple, aqua and chartreuse play together.

    Hi Cheese! Yes, I think those colors will be beautiful together... purple, aqua and chartreuse.

    All of the white and purple squares came from my 1 1/2" shoe box. It is almost full, so I had a lot to choose from. I stuck with my aqua constant, even though I had that color in the box as well. I started using Bonnie's Scrap User System years ago! It took longer to complete the blocks, as I had more sewing to do!
