not a spectator

Every year for the last several years I have enjoyed watching Bonnie Hunter's annual mystery quilt unfold.  This year when she announced her colors I was hooked - what a pretty palate to work with!
So the first clue was released on Friday and by Sunday evening I had all of these delightful scrappy little 9 patches made.  
 Bonnie's Monday link up is here.
I pulled plenty of fabric to use from my stash.  It's been sitting on this card table tempting me for weeks so I'm happy to be sewing with it now.
 Now I have to wait until Friday and the next clue...

In the meantime I am steadily making progress on quilting my son's quilt and I pulled out this little ufo that I'd love to finish up before Christmas.
I misplaced the pattern so I took the pieces and attached them.  I think its wrong but I like it and now I just need to quilt it as well. It would be great to use it for Christmas decorating :0)

Happy Quilting!!

The one year I did Bonnie's mystery my hubby and FIL were watching football every weekend- sure made it easier for me to stay caught up. Love your fabric!

You have gathered a beautiful collection of fabrics to use and have jumped in with your sewing machine whirling away. Have fun!

Last year was my first mystery quilt experience and I was hooked! I was NOT pleased to have broken my arm a few weeks ago! N, not at MQ time! But I’m doing it, slow going though. Your nine patches look fab and I really like your fabric choices.

Your 9-patches and stacks of fabric are tempting me to join in!
Good luck getting that cute UFO done for Christmas.

Beautiful pallet! Love your finish, always fun to see something from the "archives" then call it done.
Thanks for Sharing!

Your fabric choices for the mystery quilt are oh so pretty. I have never done any of Bonnie's mystery quilts. Usually a ton of pieces and a huge quilt.
