Hello from Quilt Villa!
The Hubster has a bunch of things he wants to work on at the cabin this weekend, so guess where we headed as soon as 50+ book orders were filled and hand delivered to the post office on their way to their new homes?
I almost said “NO – I want to stay HOME.” The weather is nasty – rainy, foggy, drizzly ---but then I thought better. If I go THERE I don’t have to clean HERE –and before I knew it I was throwing my as-yet-unpacked suitcase in the back of the pickup raring to go.
This was our view on our drive up – fog and clouds so low you can’t even TELL that there are mountains in the distance.
While thumbing through my phone on the drive up, I came across Joyce’s emaiil, and I quickly replied to her to see if I could share it with you.
You will be blown away!
Hi Bonnie – I have made several of your mysteries, and didn’t want to miss out on this one either. While you have mentioned that several of your readers complained about the size of your quilts, I have taken it to a different level.MINI!!
Your instructions are so detailed that I was able to 1/4 size all the components and made the small version in my size – 19 1/2” square. And yes, I twirled all my 4-patches and did indeed use the Tri-Recs ruler even though I had to add in a new cutting line.

It was a challenge and I enjoyed every minute of it. There were moments when I thought “What if I don’t like the finished quilt?”, but I persevered and I love it! Thank you for all the work you put into creating these mysteries for us.

She made it in miniature! Isn’t this so cool?!
Thanks for sharing, Joyce ---I am blown away!
There is a fire starting in the wood stove downstairs. I’m thinking it will be a great evening for unwinding in jammies with some handwork and a movie.
Tomorrow I’ve got a treat for you – a special give-away, so you won’t want to miss that in the morning.
And of course, Cabin Shenanigans are always fun!
Have a great evening, Everyone!
