Mystery Quilt - Clue #2

UPDATED with the Link Up!
Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt Clue #2 was released last Friday and today we all Link Up Here to share our progress.

The easiest way to sew this unit is to use the Tri Recs ruler. Okay - No Problem! I have it. Somewhere. 


The studio, while slightly less cluttered with the 2 boxes of fabric that left this week, was still a nightmare.
The cutting table looked like this, well, kind of...

No starting on sewing until I cleaned up and located the ruler.

And it was not about to be found quickly. I rummaged through drawers,cleaned, organized, culled more out of the fabric stash and finally remembered I put them where they belonged - in a bin with other small & specialty rulers. 

By evening, I cut some strips
And changed my mind!
Rather than using a few shades of blue neutral, I decided to go only with the navy.
I sewed exactly six (6!) before calling it a night.  Up early-ish on Sunday, chain piecing away before breakfast resulted in this:

Clue#2 is in the bin!


  1. Look at those sneaky rulers, hiding out with the other rulers.

    Your mini units are too cute! Is it hard to cut the tri-rec pieces so small and stay accurate?

  2. Very exciting color combination. Can't wait to see the final quilt.

  3. This will be lovely to see with the hand dyed fabrics so dark and rich.
