Above: These are 9 of the Bonnie Hunter quilts that I’ve talked about on the blog before. Information reading top left to bottom right.
- Carolina Christmas – my way … a little different than Bonnie’s original intent, but all the credit for the inspirational design is Bonnie’s. I did it originally as a mystery, but it can be found in “Scraps & Shirttails 2.” I made extra poinsettia blocks for the borders.
- Scrappy Blue Bargello – a free pattern on her website. This is queen size.
- Scrappy Blue Bargello – this lap quilt was made because of the mistake I made in the queen sized one … had to use up the pieces, don’t ya know?
- Orca Bay #1. This was a mystery quilt and can now be found in “String Fling”
- On Ringo Lake: 2017/18 mystery quilt and is available as a digital download on Bonnie’s website
- Blue Ridge Beauty. This is in “Adventures with Leaders & Enders.” I did this as a true leader & ender and it took me about 3 years to complete.
- Scrappy Fall Bargello: Queen sized using strips of fabric from a fall exchange
- Orca Bay #2. With added borders! Queen Sized.
- En Provence: Another mystery quilt that is available as a digital download. The borders were pretty neat to make. All scrappy neutral squares.
These following quilts have not been featured on my blog before.
Easy Street. I’m not sure what made easy … it was a lot of work! It was originally made as a mystery quilt. Today, the pattern can be found in “More Adventures with Leaders and Enders.”
Grande Illusion. Another Mystery Quilt that I adapted from Bonnie’s pattern. It is available as a digital download.
Alletare. Another mystery quilt. The borders are scalloped. It was actually easy to do them, using Bonnie’s method. Available as a digital download.
Roll Roll Cotton Boll. I LOVE this one! The borders were fun to do – with no waste, using rulers.
Celtic Solstice. Another mystery quilt. I like how the HST give the illusion of circles – but there are absolutely NO curved seams in this quilt.
If you’ve patiently waded through all my blurbs about each quilt, you will have discovered that I’ve done most of these quilts as a mystery quilt. Bonnie offers a free mystery quilt that runs from late November to the beginning of January. I find that I thoroughly enjoy doing the mysteries. I learn something with each one. Actually, I learn a LOT with each quilt! Her instructions are fantastic!
I do have a friend, who does not care to do large quilts. Pretty much each year, she does half of each clue and ends up with a nice sized lap quilt.
