Frolic Mystery Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 3

I'm still working on my Frolic Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville. I shared previous progress in Part 1 and Part 2 blog posts. 
I was concerned I wouldn't have enough of the green for sashing, but after I cut a few strips of the black I discovered I had just enough.
I'm always challenged by blocks set on point. Not only is there the problem with keeping things from shifting because everything is on the bias, particularly along the edges, but it just takes longer to piece than blocks in rows and columns ...

Frolic Mystery Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 2

A couple weeks ago I shared Part 1 of my Frolic Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.
I've been making good progress on the many units that make up this quilt. First, I worked through the corner blocks.
Then, the side blocks.
I was finally filling in units and it was starting to look like a quilt.
This past weekend I managed to finish all the blocks. Now, I move on to the sashing. I don't make many quilts with sashing because it always seems like so much work. Great results, though.

Tools and supplies ...

Frolic Mystery Quilt from Becca's Crazy Projects

Part 1
Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville hosts a mystery quilt that begins the day after Thanksgiving in the United States.

Frolic began on Black Friday in 2019. I wasn't excited about the mystery quilt this time. I did buy some fabric, but I didn't have the interest to actually play along with the mystery. This isn't the fault of the designer, just a general feeling of not wanting to make a quilt without knowing where I was going. I waited until after the reveal to settle on my colors.
I picked up the black and the gray ...

I Do Love a Good Mystery from Hooked on Quilting

As mentioned before, I greatly enjoy reading mysteries. It has something to do with the need to have my brain in constant motion in order to keep myself from becoming bored. Yes, I do read the occasional romance novel, but they’re almost always so hokey and unrealistic that slogging through a whole one is quite an effort. No, give me a good who-dun-it, and I’m happy. What has this to do with tea, you’re wondering? Well, on one of my orders to Plum Deluxe I decided to add their Blender’s Choice option to my cart. I ...

Not a mystery to me from The Academic Quilter

Hi everyone! Are you all done Christmas shopping? Me neither! I went out shopping last weekend and mainly just looked at all the decorations and enjoyed some Christmas spirit. I bought one thing, and I'm happy with that. I've actually only got a few things left since I got almost everything online. My parents have forbidden all of us from buying any more presents for them and the grandkids are still small enough to be happy with a box, so that only really leaves my husband. Anybody out there have ideas for a kinda nerdy engineering type who ...

A Cross Stitch Finish and Bonnie Hunter Mystery from Pointless Quilter

It's been kind of  slow month.  My machine (Bernina 750) has been in the shop for the past two weeks so not a whole lot of quilting going on.  But I did finish a cross stitch piece.  It's a Prairie Schooler Santa.  See photo above.  This is the one with the Sewing Machine.  I also have the pattern with a quilt and that will be the next one I work on.  They are pretty easy patterns and they use mostly the same DMC colors so they all coordinate.  They have an annual Santa.  The one with the sheep ...

A jump start from The Academic Quilter

Hi all! Long time no see! I don't know what's wrong with me lately, but I seem to be in a bit of a creative slump. This doesn't happen to me all that often, and it is definitely no fun. Do you think it's related to moving and having all kinds of personal upheaval in my life right now? Hmmmm. . .

Whatever it is, I need to get out of this, so I decided to do the only thing that I know for sure will perk me up-- start a new project. Sure, I have a ton ...

Try, try again from The Academic Quilter

Hello all! Here we are in November and it's definitely started living up to its name. It's gotten cold and windy, but of course I love it when its dark outside at 4 pm. It makes driving home even more exciting. At least most cars have their lights on now. The deer, not so much.

As you may know, Bonnie Hunter has released the colors and yardage for her yearly mystery quilt. (You can find that info HERE if you're interested.) I love Bonnie, and her quilts, but I have not had a lot of luck with ...

Antique Quilt finish from Pointless Quilter

Top hand pieced by Lula Gurtrude Habaugh Smith.  This was made from clothes that were from Ida Smith Andersen who is my sister's mother-in-law.

My sisters mother-in-law had this quilt top in a bag in her sewing room and Beverly found it when they were helping her clean out her room when they moved to an assisted living facility.  My sister asked if I would be willing to quilt it for her and I jumped on the chance to work on it.  It's a pretty good sized quilt, about 74 x 100.   I rounded the borders off instead ...
