More Making Mysteries

The weather continues to be cold, dreary and windy.  It's been really easy to just hang out in the sewing room when I'm not at work.  Consequently both design walls are currently covered with blocks.  

Morewood Mystery by Cheryl of Meadow Mist Designs

All the Block A's for Morewoord Mystery are up on the small design wall.  That finishes off the January clue.  I really like the colors/fabrics in these blocks.  The February clue will be out on Thursday, so I'll be ready to make a start on it next weekend.  

Grassy Creek is up on the big design wall. 

Grassy Greek, the 2020 Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

All the sashing pieces are made.  I'm working on piecing the blocks and border subunits.  The first row of sashing blocks has been sewn together.  I wasn't sure I was going to like Grassy Creek, but now that there's enough up on the design wall to see how the blocks are going to blend together, it's definitely growing on me.  

There's been some good progress on the other Bonnie Hunter mystery, Unity, as well.  But I'm out of design walls, so didn't get any photos of that project.  

Linking up with the regular Monday show and tell posts of Monday Making and Design Wall Monday.

Your Grassy Creek is flowing nicely whilst the creeks outside are frozen. How do you decide which project to work on? And do you have a side project in the works?

Great progress! I picked up Unity from the quilter late Friday afternoon so hopefully I'll get the binding attached this week so I can hand stitch that binding in the evenings.

Using a single fabric for each of the colors really calms down Bonnie's design. Good thinking, Kate!

That's a lot of great progress!!

That is one good thing about crappy weather...both are looking great. I'm curious to see what Cheryl's mystery is this year!

Grassy Creek is starting to take shape, and I'm liking the color combination. Can't wait to see the next step in the Moreland Mystery!

I'm glad I waited on Grassy, cause I still haven't defined my fabrics. LOL!

Great progress. Grassy Creek is coming along really well. It's fun to see these mysteries take shape -- especially since I didn't do either one! Looking good!

I love both of your quilts! Especially the Maywood! Have a great week.

These look great. The color in your Morewood mystery are beautiful - and in the Grassy Creek - I like that solid piece of Grey - it is making a secondary design you don't see with the string piecing! nice!!
