On Ringo Lake Clue #1

Image may contain: stripes

These are the blocks I just completed for the new Quiltville Mystery, On Ringo Lake. I've always wanted to take part in one of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts so I decided to go for it! I'm challenging myself to use scraps from my stash.

These are the fat quarters I pulled from my stash. Bonnie Hunter is using dark brown which I replaced with black. She's also using shades of peach but I chose pink instead. The neutrals and aqua/blues are the same. My pile of fat quarters actually looks a little smaller!

I made lots of strip sets. She gives excellent directions and tips to make things easier.  I think her advice really helped me keep my 1/4 inch seam allowance.

I cut my strips and started making my nine patches. That's it for the first clue! I'm already looking forward to the next clue. So fun! I'll be linking to Quiltville's On Ringo Lake Mystery Monday Link up that you can find here.

    1. Thanks, Dawn! I've always wanted to try one of her mysteries but always found them to be huge! This one is a little more manageable. This is a busy time of year so I'm hoping I can keep up! I'm printing out the weekly clues just in case I get too busy.

  3. I like your color changes--I think the black will really make the colors sing. i tried one of her mysteries, but couldn't keep up (and there were --gasp--triangles!!) lol. I am always in the midst of some project when her clues come out and the Holidays' prepping--so i just enjoy watching everyone's combos and how they emerge....hugs, Julierose

    1. Thank you, Julierose! I'm hoping her clues don't become too intense! It's difficult to find the time to quilt this time of year. I'm going to try and keep up but who knows!? Hoping it's not too bad!

    1. Thanks, Alison! I really would love to use fabric that I've had hanging around in my stash. I would love to use it up. I guess I'm not into browns! I could only find 2 fabrics! I have more of black so I went with that. Same thing with the peach. Hardly any peaches but lots of pink. I hope it works out well!
