Design Wall Monday 12/14/2020

The main focus of my quilting time last week was making units for Grassy Creek, Bonnie Hunter's 2020 mystery quilt. Each unit shown has multiple matching units stacked up underneath it , and these are only a portion of the units I have made so far. The grey and gold half-square triangles are Step 1, the little green-gold-white hourglass units are Step 2, and the red-white-orange triangles are Step 3.

I have done a few others of Bonnie's mystery quilts in the past, and a couple things are different for me this year. The first thing is that I am making it in the same colors as Bonnie used. For all past mystery quilts, either by Bonnie Hunter or anyone else, I always try to use a different color combination so that my quilt will be different than all the rest. This year I was in the mood for the fall colors, so I am following her plan. I have gone scrappy with all the colors except the grey--I'm using a single fabric for that color.

The other change this year is that I'm actually considering making the same size as Bonnie's pattern. In the past I have made my versions smaller than her design. The finished size of this quilt is 94" square, which would be a good size for my bed. Right now I'm making about 2/3 of the total number of units called for in the pattern, but I might decide to go for it and make them all. I made sure to buy enough of the grey fabric (my only purchase for this quilt) in order to complete the quilt.

  5. I am watching from the sidelines on Bonnie’s mystery this year. Your colors looks great. I am copying the clues in case I want to make it later - my UFOs are my commitment right now. Thanks for showing us what you are. working on. All the participants in Design Wall Mondays appreciate you. Hugs, Judy

  6. You've done a good job of keeping up. I'm only making half the number of blocks, we'll see if I go larger or not once we have the reveal.
