Step 7....The Finale!






Step 7 is up!

I had so much fun planning this mystery for you. I have loved seeing all the variety in the fabric choices and seeing how much fun you have had with it!

I now have a closing date on our house in Winston Salem, NC. We will be closing Feb 4th, and moving should happen close after that date.

I plan to do another mystery quilt starting around April 1st!

Stay Tuned!

In Stitches --

(and pssst...guess what? It's SNOWING HEAVILY here in SC as I type this! Whooowhooo! Do you think I'd be lucky enough to be iced in from having to go to work tomorrow? one can always dream..and that's where I'm headed right now....g'night!)

Oh Bonnie,thankyou seems like such a small word for the pleasure I have had in doing this mystery....

I love how the stars disappear into the quilt.
I am a step or two behind, and look forward to completing it.

I love it! I have to finish the triangle units in step 6, but now that I see the finished quilt, I am anxious to stay home and sew. Thank goodness there is a 3-day weekend coming up in two more days. I agree with Vickie, I cannot thank you enough for the fun I have had with this mystery. Keep up the good work.

Woaw ! Your quilt is absolutely wonderful! I've started it and I'm still on step 2 so the mystery is revelead for me , but I don't regret it : to see the quilt finished is great encouragement ! Thank's for sharing it with us !

Wow - what a surprise - this has turned out quite differently from how I expected - the combination of all those little nine patches when the blocks join has given it a completely different look to what I thought was coming. A true mystery quilt and as always with your designs Bonnie a real beauty. It will be fascinating to see what all the other different colourways come out like. All this and a house move Bonnie you're a whizz!

Simply stunning! I love it, Bonnie, and just think~ there are thousands more being completed as we "speak"... Wow! Well done. The 4th is just around the corner! :)

Freda said...

Wow, Bonnie, that is pretty. Good luck with your move.

Thank you Bonnie! I think if I had seen the finished quilt, with all the tiny pieces, I probably wouldn't have started it! Now my quilt is almost done and I'm really proud..thanks for being such an inspiration!

Wow, it's really stunning! I didn't do this one, but I'll be ready in April! Good luck with your move Bonnie.

Just love the finished quilt. Have just started it so am cheating a bit and it is going to take some time as I am doing all the nine patches as leaders enders ( I have so many scraps)

Shelina said...

Yet another beautiful quilt Bonnie. You are so talented.

Sarah said...

Hi Bonnie - the quilt is gorgeous. I'm way behind but it's nice to see what I'll end up with. Any chance we can get a heads up between now and April on color suggestions or strip sizes so I/we can be ready for the next mystery?

Thanks again for all your lovely patterns - I'll send a pic of my star struck soon. Sarah

I have awarded you the "You Make My Day Award! on my blog.

Judy said...

What a fabulous design! It's something to think about breaking it down like that and suddenly ending up with a beautiful design.

Lea said...

Hello Bonnie,

I'm Jittina from the Netherlands and I've just discoverd your website and blog.
I'm also a big fan of recycling shirts from the thrift store. And this quilt is awesome! I really would like to make it, but all the steps are missing!
Maybe I can figure it out by looking at the earlier pictures, but I haven't been quilting a very long time (approx 1 year now) and I could really use some explanation.
Is it possible to mail me the steps to make this quilt? It would really make my day!

Jittina

Hi Bonnie,

I've found your pattern of Carolina Crossroads. I saw on your website that it's published in your book Scraps & Shirttails. I allready had it on my wishlist, but now I really, really want it!
