|En Provence, A Bonnie Hunter Mystery (2016)|
I like how this one came together and it may be my favorite Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt so far. My version is made from yardage, not scraps. The fabrics used in this quilt are left overs and rejects from the Geisha quilt made for my niece several years ago. She's been asking me if I have a pastel quilt as she'd like a lighter colored one for the spring and summer, so I think she's getting this one too. she has a birthday in August, so that works out nicely. The feature fabric from the Geisha quilt got used up on the back of this one, as did the pink and the burgundy.
After piecing the back, all that is left of these fabrics is pretty much just scraps. It's nice to finally find a final home for them and have them out of the stash.
Trudy used an all over floral motif for the quilting. Very pretty and it gives the quilt a nice drape.
So that's one off the UFO list for 2018.
I can't seem to make it below 17 UFOs. I've done a pretty good job on finishing off most of my newer projects within a year, but I'm struggling to finish off the older ones. Progress has been made, so at some point I should start seeing lots of finishes.
Here's one last look at En Provence.
The next finish will probably be the Magnolia Mystery, the Meadow Mist Designs 2017 mystery quilt. All it needs is binding. But since that one isn't a year old yet, it will not lower my UFO numbers (It will keep the number from going back up to 18, so that's good too). That one should be finished by August. At the moment, I'm trying to finish off the Red, White and Blue Star blocks that were last month's OMG. Then those will go back to the project box till probably next year.
En Provence is also on my 2018 Finish Along list for third quarter 2018.
