Bonnie Hunter's new mystery....

Last year I made Bonnie's Orca Bay mystery and renamed mine CherryLime Mash.  I loved making it and loved even more the way it turned out.  Especially since it won so many awards at our local Fair.  lol   Click here if you haven't seen it yet.

So here we are one year later and it 's almost time for Bonnie's next mystery.  She's calling this one Easy Street  ... she said because it will be much easier than last years.  I can sure handle that.  haha

She has shown us the colors that she's picked out for her quilt on this post.   I love her choices for sure..... mostly.... but ..... I have to substitute a bit to be able to pull from my stash and satisfy my control streak.  haha
These are the fabrics that I've chosen.   I have absolutely no purples left in my stash because I've pulled them to use in my Grandmother's Choice blocks.  So I'm going to be using pinks instead.  And ..... about her gray.... well that just won't be happening for me so I'm going to be picking up a couple of yards of a medium purple to use as my constant fabric.
And my last substitution is with the white.  She'll use black on white prints .... but I just don't care for all that busyness so I'll use a few white on white as my background.

So now I can get back to my sewing on my Bows & Boughs.  I'm still trying to get the rows and sashing's sewn together so I can decide on the borders.

I hope you're having a great day. Glad you stopped by.....Linda


  1. Bonnie mentioned no string blocks this year...I may be able to do this one :-) I think I have downloaded all her mysteries the past few years and yet have never done one. Maybe this is the one... I'm still fence sitting

  2. Nice collection of fabrics. I don't do mysteries---I am more into process but I'll hide and watch while y'all participate and then decide.

    She seems to use a lot of strips that finish small, small, small. Bigger blocks makes more donation quilts for me! Have fun!
