Bonnie Hunter Mystery

I enjoy all of the celebrations of December:  Eggnog.  Mistletoe.  The annual Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt.

As soon as the Thanksgiving dishes are put away, I look for Bonnie's first clue.  My husband knows this.  My children know this.  My mother-in-law knows this too and asks,  "Are you going to do that thing where you cut fabric into a lot of little pieces again this year?"  Why, yes I am!

This week's hint was to make gray and white half-square triangles.  Lots and lots of them.  Like 294 or something.  I have 90 done:


Must.  Sew.  Faster.

While I am thinking about my Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt, I am remembering last year's mystery, Grand Illusion.  What I'm remembering is that I never finished it:


I found these pieces in a basket, but I don't have the pattern.  Thankfully, Bonnie sells the digital download on her website.  Even more fortunately, it is on sale until December 4.

Must.  Buy.  Now.

So not only am I starting this year's mystery, I'm now re-starting last year's mystery.  By January 1, I will have sewn my fingers to the bone!
