Mystery Musings

It's time to get back to stitching something - anything!

I've been dealing with several issues in my life, one of which I would classify as Quilting Inertia. I've had nothing even remotely creatively quilty going on for months now. Nothing.  If anyone out there has some extra quilting mojo - please send it my way. Thanks!

In the meantime, I am bound and determined to get my fabric stash and my sewing machine back together for some quality time.  What better way to do this than to tackle a project that I don't have to design?  Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt kicked off on Black Friday. I'm a little behind but if I do it as a mini, I can quickly get caught up.

This year's Mystery is called Good Fortune and the intro post can be found HERE . The colors reflect those from Bonnie's trip to China.  

While they are pretty, I'm going to change things a bit to reflect my stash.  

These are end bolts I bought over a year ago, just hanging out together waiting for a project.  

BUT (there's always a but) I had them earmarked for a quilt to match the wall hanging in the Michigan bedroom. 

And they are fairly large yardage-wise and I'm not keen on cutting into them for a mini or lap size quilt. Not to mention, they are as still unwashed. YIKES!  Going to have to remedy that, regardless of whether or not I chose to use them now. 

But ultimately, I think my colors for this year's mystery will be closer to these batiks, rather than Bonnie's selections. We'll see but a decision needs to be made and some sewing started - SOON!  Check out all the other quilters are doing for their version of this year's Good Fortune Mystery Quilt via this Link Up.
