Mystery link up

Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt was a fun distraction alongside all the usual busy Christmas festivities.  I was excited to see the final reveal.  I just love the blocks. I have most of the parts made but have only managed to get 4 blocks done so far.  Here they are laid out with the sashing pieces.  

 I actually love the blocks laid side by side without the sashing pieces shown below. I will make all the blocks before I decide how I will set them together.
It's a bit strange to have so many block parts made - its different to store them than completed blocks.  I have bags and containers and boxes full of parts so the blocks should go together quickly.
Here is a link to Bonnie's mystery link - up so you can checkout what other people made.

There had to be some applique to work on while I was away visiting family.  I prepped another block for my guild challenge project. I drew this Mexican Rose block and it was quick to stitch up (a little too quick - I hate running out of hand stitching)
Today the kids went back to school so hopefully I can get some other applique prepped now. 
Happy Quilting!!

I bet once you get more blocks done you'll know what setting you want to use. The colors are great!
