To Do List and En Provence Mystery Quilt


In one month, I finished off two things.  And added one: Quiltville Bonnie Hunter’s En Provence Mystery Quilt.  In my defense, I also finished making all the words for the Alphabet Quilt, and just picked up the Halloween Quilt from the quilter’s, which now needs binding.  Wait, I may have added one more thing: setting the brain working on what to do with the Christmas Tree Blocks, and if I’ll make any more.en-provence_1

Part one of the En Provence Mystery Quilt asked us to make 221 of these four-patch groups.  I was able to make 207, and will find the time to make the others in the future.en-provence_2

Part Two asked us to use the Tri-Recs tool and make 100 of these units.  I started in on scrappy (above) but soon switched to one-fabric, running out before I finished.  Never fear.  More fabric is en route to finish them off.en-provence_2a

I’m pretty sure that’s about as caught up as I’m going to be from here on out, but it’s a good start.

  1. That’s some ‘to do’ list! I love the look of the mystery quilt! A fun project! I’m busy making a 2017 list, of quilts I want to make…..if I can get my three WIPs finished soon! Happy sewing!

  2. I’d say you have made great progress – much better than I have lately. Now you have more 4-patch blocks to make – in pretty colors. 😉 Looking forward to seeing the Halloween quilt finished.

  3. I have to agree – it looks like art. I need to prioritize or I get easily distracted. Nothing like a deadline to get me moving. Just this week I created a UFO 2017 form for one of my quilt bees. Several members of both bees I belong to felt that the UFO Challenge helped spur them into action. I must admit, I got a couple of old projects completed. (Certainly not all 12 on the list). I keep getting tempted & distracted by things like the mystery quilt Bonnie Hunter does and one that Carole – does. So, my UFO project list has grown substantially. Those new projects get in the way of wrapping up and finishing old projects. I’ve sworn off mysteries for a while, but love “lurking” in the background to see what people are working on.

  4. Well done for finishing!
    I too have been crossing things off my list but adding new things that I should not. In my defence, the new projects I started, included the one I started cutting yesterday afternoon, can all be made from stash.

  5. Good for you! It’s great that you’re tackling Bonnie’s mystery. I know some quilters do it every year, but once was enough for me! I prefer to know in advance what I’m spending my time to make. It will be fun to watch your progress though, and I know your finish will be beautiful. Enjoy playing with all your ideas. I think that’s the best part of quiltmaking.

  6. Like your To Do List. Glad you are joining in on the mystery as I am doing that one too. It is hard to resist if you are a Bonnie Hunter fan as I am. I have about 3 so far on my to do list which are UFOs and have made it a point to send pictures next year of my completed projects. One other one is the Sarah Fielke Block of the Month which I am really excited about and that will take the whole year to complete. Enjoy 2017 and your new machine which it looks like you are doing great things with.
