Over the next couple of years I participated in four of Bonnie's quilt mysteries. She gave us the rough fabric requirements, urging us to try to use what we had in our stash. Then, over the next days, and sometimes weeks, she led us through the steps to make a pieced jewel of a quilt. All along, we never knew what the finished quilt would look like until the final "reveal".
Such excitement, I'm telling you! Bonnie set up a special site for mystery quilters to post pictures of their progress. I loved looking at what fabrics everyone was using. The quilt I am showing you today is the last mystery quilt that I created with Bonnie.
It is probably my favorite of the four that I participated in. Bonnie called the pattern Double Delight. My rendition is called Peppermint Delight because the colors remind me of peppermint candy somehow.
Bonnie loves small pieces in her quilts and is especially partial to using 1.5 inch strips to piece little 9 patches.
For now, I am thinking that my career as a mystery quilt maker is probably over , but it sure was fun and I have four lovelies made with scraps from my stash. That means room for more fabric. ......Right?!
Have fun feasting on the eye candy at the Quilt Festival!
