I was able to start working on Bonnie Hunter's Orca Bay Mystery quilt this weekend. We have a lot of Bonnie Hunter fans in our quilt guild, so we issued a challenge to finish this mystery quilt before Bonnie's visit to Rhode Island next April! We have about 10 members interested, and I hope more will join in after show and tell at the next meeting.
I will be working with blues, greens and oranges on a tan background.
Part 1: I have only 40 of the 224 quarter triangle units done.
(I'm using blue in place of Bonnie's black.)
Part 2: I have 12 of the required 72 string blocks done.
(I'm using orange in place of Bonnie's blue.)
I was happy to see that I'm not the only one using orange!
It's progress. I'll keep plugging along as time permits.
I participated in a craft fair at my church, but didn't sell much, as expected. I should fare better at next week's show at a local elementary school.
I try not to spend more than I make at shows, so I look for interesting crafts that I would not make for myself. Isn't this fairy adorable? She's not much bigger than a quarter!
Have you seen The Muppets yet? Classic Muppets, cool cameo appearances and a great story. We want more! I would love to see The Muppet Show on TV again. I think we're ready for a weekly variety show, what with all the singing and dancing competition shows. Please, Disney, bring back the Muppet Show!
