The mystery is from Bonnie Hunter- you can read about it here. I'm not going to lie... it has been a tremendous amount of work. There will be over 3,200 pieces in the top. More than that, once the borders are added. And there is something about the Bonnie quilt's I've made....(I guess this is only the second one!)... they really look better from a distance. Up close, it looks like a mish-mash of colors and patterns. But if you back up a little, the design pops out at you.
The other quilt I've made by Bonnie is Easy Street.
I started another project earlier this week, and I should have worked on that today.
I bought the pattern for the Molly Messenger Bag over at
Pretty By Hand. DH and I will are taking a trip to sunny Arizona in a couple weeks, and I want a big purse/bag for the trip. I was looking for a messenger bag that had a zipper, and this one fit the bill. I don't want my stuff to spill out all over the place on the plane. This pattern is so neat- it calls for 10 fat quarters. It also gives yardage if you'd rather make it out of just one fabric. I am using fabric that has been in my stash for awhile, plus throwing in some pieces of vintage embroidery. I'll post pictures in a few days!
Our weather here has been awful - this has been the coldest winter I can remember in a long time! It's good weather to stay in and sew! :)
