Any hints of Bonnie Hunter's new MYSTERY quilt? Sign In/Join

I have to confess that I have been completely out of the loop on Bonnie's upcoming mystery quilt to be started next month.

Has anyone heard through her blog or Quiltcam any hints on what we will expect?

On her quilt cam last night she said the info would come out on October 23rd. But she didn't give out any hints


Keep calm and carry on

That is exciteing. I didn't realize she had one starting soon. I love her quilts, even if I usually can't keep up with the mystery.

The only thing I remember hearing is that she will be giving directions for making either a king size quilt or a smaller one. I am also anxious to see what it is. I will get a late start because we will be out of town for DGD's wedding that weekend.

I doubt that I will use the same colors she does. My stash has lots and lots of dark greens, reds, blues, and browns so my quilt will probably be in those colors. For the one last winter, I just substituted dark green for her lime green, dark blue for turquoise, etc. It turned out beautiful!

I don't know if it a hint or not,more an observation, she has been showing lot's of yellow and orange items and oohing and ahaaing over them this whole summer.I'm guessing those colors will be her choice.She is making the large quilt for her new cabin in the hills if I remember correctly(rarely these days)so I'm thinking so. She'll give the yardage on the 23rd and we'll get the first instructions on Black Friday....Smile Bring it on I maybe ready by then.

Here is my "Easy Street"--

I replaced the apple green with red as I had made several quilts in the past couple of years with lime green (my favorite color) and needed a break. Did anyone count the number of pieces in the quilt yet???

That is beautiful KC,my top is not together yet. I had set it aside to work on this summer,but my younger brother got really sick(er)and I spent most of the summer downstate,so no quilting. He passed away the 1st week of August and I've just gotten back to quilting. Soon,hopefully before the first instructions for the new one is given. I'm sending it to a LA for quilting.

I believe I might have the number of pieces in my project box,I'll look tonight. It was posted several times on the Yahoo Group.It seems like it was 2,262 pieces or somesuch #.

Mine still needs the binding but you can see how my colors look. Also notice the flying geese borders I added to the ends to make it longer.

It's too bad we don't have more advance notice on the colors and sizes needed or we could have a swap to give us more variety of fabrics.

We'll have to have a post here on the boards to keep each other moving forward. It certainly couldn't hurt! Smile

here is a pic of the one I made for my niece's wedding in April. I started making 2 of them (crazy. I know) and mine is still sitting unfinished. Kadie's favorite color is pink so I changed the grays out to pink.

ETA: Found the number 2,632 pieces in Easy Street quiltt.

I'm looking forward to doing one of these mystery quilts after I'm done working....Oranges and yellows are very tempting though.

Also, she is usually very careful to not let us see any parts of the upcoming mystery. I'm not saying she won't be using orange or yellow - but don't count on it just because someone saw some in her work.

That is so true,I mentioned yellow and orange because " of my observations" only. Call it a wild guess at best.

All your quilts are beautiful! Don't you just love how different the same pattern can look like with just a change of color!

Only one more day to wait--this year, I think I will go to Lowe's for the paint chips.

Will someone post here just as soon as you see Bonnie's post it up?

Oh no! I was thinking the info would be out today. But I have another day to wait. I don't know why I am so anxious because I will probably use dark browns, reds, greens and blues since that is what I mostly have.

Mary Lou...I had it written in ink on my Fridge calendar for today also....then somewhere it changed to the 23rd...so I do believe we did not get that 2nd Memo....I just know I'm shopping my stash regardless of the colors, yet Bonnie's colors do get me out of "my box",so I'm keeping an open mind...

TcMay, you were right on the money! I don't have anything in the way of yellow or orange and really don't care to make a quilt with them (and we all know how many pieces her quilt entail).

Back to the drawing board...

There IS yellow and orange!!! Hmmm, what to do, what to do, what to do??? I have a few oranges and a few yellows, but not enough. So I have to decide if I want to stick with her colors and go shopping or shall I substitute. My blues and greens are mostly darker than her color so maybe I could use deep gold in place of yellow and use darker oranges. If so, I would probably use tans instead of white/cream for the neutral. Thinking out loud here - what do you think of my ideas?

Mary Lou, I would use your stash - and work your magic with it. Your colous sound very nice, you do not have to be 'bright' all the time and Bonnie likes bright. Smile Sometimes a comfy comfortable quilt that just says curl up and be warm is the way to go and now, I need to see if there is anything I can 'buy' from my stash to do this!!!

We are off on another adventure - Am I climbing on this boat this time, or am I staying on shore like I did the last mystery... Frown ?

I think I want to go travel this time....... Confused ...... ahhhhh, let the fun begin!!! Wink

WOWZER..I never expected that Blarney green Yuck and those shades of blue with the yellow and orange.Now,,,must decide if I want to be the brightest crayon in the box. I'm leaning more to mellow yellow,soft blues,white for background and ????. I'll look at my stash,I'm not going shopping. I will make the 75 x 75 size and I'll guess there will be stars in there which will require the Tri Recs.

Have you ever used the Inklingo?
