Mystery Monday


It's Monday 
Bonnie added Step 4 which are strings again but we are cutting them into triangles.  I only finished about 30 but am glad to work with the fourth color.  I like my colors but when I look at everyones black, white, blues and reds, I wish I had those color scraps.  They look so great together!




Here is what they look like added to the design wall.  Still cannot imagine how this will be going together but I'm sure Bonnie has something great in mind.  I am finished with Step 1, 2 and 3 and will keep working away at 4 throughout this week.  I found I like sewing a little bit everyday rather than finishing in a day or two and then having to wait until Friday for a new clue to work on it again.  I love thinking of all the other quilters all over the world that are participating in this mystery.  It's like one big quilting bee!



These are a few charity quilts that I finished this week.  The tops were made using strip piecing and leaders/enders and were just sitting there waiting...  I quilted quick overall freehand patterns and machine stitched the bindings.   They only need laundering, then they are ready to donate to Project Linus.

Otherwise,  I am getting ready for Christmas and my son, Adam, to come home from college and for family coming for a visit this weekend!  

Thanks for stopping by, 
Susan

Your colors are beautiful for the Orca Bay Mystery Quilt. I love what you have chosen. And you are so fast too. I've just barely started on step 4.

I LOVE your colors -- simply gorgeous! Oh the more I see people's work on this Mystery quilt the more I want to jump in too -- maybe I'll play catch up later in the month. Thanks for showing yours - it makes me smile!

I am really enjoying seeing all of the different colour combos that everyone it using. Every quilt will be the from the same pattern but look totally different!

You are doing so well to keep up with the mystery so far. I love your colors. As pretty as Bonnie's choices are, there are so many alike that it is fun to see different combinations.
