SuzSLO, Your Chilhowie turned out beautifully! Congratulations!

Looks great Suz - just the opposite of me - this was the first Bonnie Hunter Mystery that I did half size!! All the others are full size!

I found some energy and finally finished my Chilhowie top! The big surprise to me was how prominent those little 9-patches turned out to be. I think the approach of choosing different fabrics for each clue worked out fine. The only part that doesn't make much sense with the dark neutral is the border; I chose my blacks with the most white for that, to try and create some contrast with the purple, and it ended up looking kind of muted. In fact various parts of the top have an odd, faded look because of the various degrees of white in the blacks. At first I thought my flash was washing out the photos, but I think that is the actual effect. I did put on the top right corner wrong, but I'm not really concerned about it.

This was such a fun mystery. Thank you, SuzSLO for so kindly hosting us!

Way to go, Joe'smom! It looks great and I have no idea what you mean by the corner being wrong. You must be so pleased to have such a fun and vibrant finish here. :-)

Beautiful finish Joe’smom! I think the colors are divine and give it a very rich, dramatic and Boho feel. Congratulations on your finish!

Great quilt, Joe's Mom. The little nine patches look like a field of flowers to me. That turned out great.
