My first Bonnie mystery quilt was the last one Good Fortune. I enjoyed being able to use up scraps and donít know why it took me so long to look into these. Iím definitely going to work on the Frolic one. I love the colors and have plenty of scraps and stash to use up. It is fun for me to use up scraps ( that never seem to diminish) and put together something I never would have dreamed of doing on my own.

I just shopped my stash and other than deciding on one constant green or the assortment or greens, I’m pretty happy with what I found. I may dig trough my neutrals again and pick out ones with prints, I certainly welcome any feedback and suggestions with ones that scream No. All Batiks except background fabric, looking forward to doing this.

Some of you may already know that Bonnie's beloved, Sadie Jane, crossed rainbow bridge early this morning. If it were me I know it would be hard to forge ahead with excitement about MQ. So hard....Let's all show her we understand and care about her...I know we will.

Tallchick - I love your batiks and think that will make an outstanding Frolic I used all batiks for ORL and was very pleased with how it turned out. This is such a fun time watching all the color/fabric selections!

Thank you so much for your reply KalamaQuilts. I will "investigate" further.

I suppose it's just as well that I did not have the chips this year, as I then would likely be disappointed with my subdued versions of the colors. This is the closest I've ever come to doing a Bonnie mystery from stash. I've ordered a few pieces of aqua and a constant green (I hope it works out; you never know when choosing by computer). My medium blues are very muted (except for that batik scrap), so I hope that won't be a problem. Do you think I should remove those two darker reds?
I like your colors. I was thinking the quilt would looked pretty somewhat subdued.

you can check out the Quitingboard thread from last year for info too. Bonnie Hunter's 2018-19 Mystery Quilt "Good Fortune"

This is a fun time and I think we all learn so even following along without sewing works. One big plus is seeing the same quilt with different fabric choices...I feel I learn a lot from that but also people will share what techniques are working for them and help each other here on the forum.

Pagzz, that's such a good point about learning from seeing the finished quilts, both the different fabric choices and the way people modify the pattern. That's one of my favorite parts of the process.

tallchick, your fabrics look great. I prefer the second photo, with the variety of greens.
