Kathy, I've put the following in my cart for the Bonnie Hunter mystery. I'm making the small quilt. I've got then in FQs-- 10 yellows, 11 oranges, 9 greens, 13 blues, and I've selected 1 for the background. Still debating if I should make my background scrappy too? What do you think. I'm ordering it all from Connecting Threads. Sadly the sale will be gone after today and I need to order after payday on Friday.
I went to Linda's (Inklingo) page, and saw she selected 5 fabrics and already has a pieced quilt. Is this what Bonnie's quilt will look like?? She's got a sort of stack and whack kind of repetitive middle.
Hi Kathy! I haven't picked any fabrics for this Bonnie K Hunter mystery quilt yet. I went to Connecting Thread and did a fabric selection based on color, and put every FQ that remotely looked close to the paint card. Then I chose only 1 background. Then I wondered if it would be better to just buy 1 fabric by yardage per color. Don't know if I'll get confused with so many fabrics to chose from. I'll shop for fabrics after the last day of the month (payday for me). I'll see what others have done with their mystery clue.
I do have the FQs for the Craftsy 2012 and 2013 BOM, as I've not even done those, so I've still got all the fabrics.
Oh, I tried downloading the free Inklingo patterns to try it out, are they always such huge files? I cancelled the download after passing 15+ MB. Figured that was just way too huge a file.
Kathy you are so right it was very hard to let go of my sweet Mr. The words of comfort from the ladies on QWU have helped knowing that people care. Thank you so much for your kind words. God Bless You!
I have been evesdropping on the "Gifty Galore" and "Barn Quilt" blogs. You girls are having SO much fun!
You mentioned that you would like to make a blue and silver winter quilt or wall hanging, so I did some looking. Those are colors I would love in my home too! If you want to go to ...quiltwoman.com...there are oodles of patterns there. I found 2 that look like they would work up beautifully in the blues and silvers. One is called "The Woods on a Snow Eve" and the other is "Winter Beauties". Check them out!
I am seriously thinking of joining the Gifty group of crafty ladies. Several are already on my friends list. The problem is that I already spend way too much time here at the computer visiting and learning from the gals, and not enough time on my sewing, quilting, and those other mudane things like housework...ugh!
Happy stitching! Oh, and I love how your barn quilt turned out!
Hello Kathy! Thank you for joining the Barn Blog QA! I'm expecting it to be a lot of fun so don't hesitate asking questions, making comments and giving LOTS of opinions! You are an old hat at this so comment away! The more the better! Its such a cute pattern and will be fun to construct together. Welcome! Mari
Kathy, I just saw that you are in Theodosia. You are only 30 miles from me if that. I went last yr to a place called Rainbow's End down there. Not much there but I did buy an antique (nice) quilt there for $38.
I plan on going back down March 2 to meet Ina Bird at the quilt show . If you are feeling better please come meet us. We had lunch there at the Harlin House. What a beautiful home. We are planning on eating there again.Hope you could make it.
The one quilt shop that we didn't care for was the Remember Me. Yes she has sold it & the new owners will be taking over the first of the month. This is the shop that we never got a thank you. The owner was there. Her husband passed away & she just last yr re married. I think she is in La La land with this new hubbie. Good thing she sold the business. The store was so cluttered & un- organized. The one that you said that you had not been in was one of our favorites. It is small but she was very helpful. It is south on 5. Hope you get a chance to visit it. The other one is on 5 also.
Hope you can come on fri. I can hardly wait to see this lady, Ina Bird. I will take my camera for pictures.
before I close have you been to the fabic shop in Thayer? This is one of my favorite places. Wonderful people. They have Henry Glass for $3.49 a yd. Of course there are some fabrics I don't care for but his name brands are great prices.
Hope to meet you some day. I live just 10 miles off 181. Happy Quilting , Donna, Th Rustic Quilter
Subtlety can't be one of your strong points in this family! I haven't really guessed but he was quite enthusiastic about something for securing a needle during breaks in stitching---guess who usually winds up helping me find lost needles when he is at home!
Hi Kathy...Thank you for the compliments on my work. My mom purchased the fabrics at a Ben Franklin store where she lives. She bought the panel and the border fabric. The black and white I purchased to make the checkerboard extensions. My son really loves his quilt.
