I really like the Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilts. I've made a few of them but haven't made any the last couple of years. I thought this year I might join in but the more I thought about it the more I decided not to. I love the color scheme this year but don't have enough of those colors in my stash and I'm not good at changing colors unless I know what the final quilt looks like. I don't want to buy more fabric until I use a LOT of what I have. I also don't need another UFO to add to my list. So... I do know that the Bonnie Hunter mysteries involve making a lot of individual units. I told myself I'd make the units she calls for in each clue but make them for one of my UFOs in order to move a UFO forward.
Clue 1 called for 50 nine patches. I made 60. Her clue called for 3 inch nine patches but I made six inch. I used homespuns and muslin. That navy on top is fabric left over from curtains I made for my youngest son's room when he was in high school and he's 33 years old now so that fabric has been around quite awhile.
Long ago I participated in a Friendship Star swap. Stars are made of homespun fabrics with a muslin background. I have thirty eight stars so will have to make a few more. I'll use the fabric scraps left over from making the variety of nine patches.
I will combine the nine patches and stars and move this UFO forward.
