Lazy Sunday Reveal & Give-Away!


Four Issues!  It’s been really fun watching the Lazy Sunday mystery evolve and roll out over Four Issues! 

I have really enjoyed participating, I’ve had several emails showing me the progress and color ways that folks have chosen to work with, each one of them GORGEOUS!

And for many, having clues released in 2 month intervals has given them time to take their time while working on other projects in between.

My hope is that everyone will have their tops together by September 1st – I’d love to do a linky party for those who participated in the Lazy Sunday Mystery through Quiltmaker Magazine.  And if you haven’t started yet – maybe a reveal of the project will make you want to jump in!

Are you ready??

What is really fun is that the staff at Quiltmaker has joined in to make their own versions in their own color ways!

I am drooling over the delicacy of the Christmas version in the upper right!

We also have the added bonus in this issue of my regular Addicted to Scraps Column!

quiltmaker 006

The featured block this month is called Four by Nine --

A great way to put all those leader/ender nine-patches to good use!  I was inspired by an antique quilt for this one and a simple layout with sashings is all it needs.  Like this:

Print

Of course I love a blue/cheddar combination..and using a different cheddar as each block background along with the scrappy blues and neutrals will make a great quilt from simple blocks!

I’m currently working on my NEXT YEAR’S columns right now…you won’t want to miss a single issue in 2014 either! They are going to be great scrap busters--

So here is what I am going to do.  Leave me a comment below and we will draw for a winner of NOT ONLY the September/October 2013 issue, but ALL FOUR ISSUES containing ALL THE PARTS to Lazy Sunday!  I will draw our lucky winner on Sunday Evening while I am in Alaska! 

Good Luck, everyone!

  43. I patiently waited for the big reveal this time. All the quilts are fantastic. I really LOVE the borders. The addicted to scraps quilt in blue & cheddar is a favorite color combo of mine. Can't wait to see what 2014 brings! BTW, I have been attacking my scraps for the last 2 weeks. The yardage has been grouped into 4 different bundles. They're standing by for a Quiltville projects.

  92. Hi Bonnie. You are such an inspiration. I'm new to quilting and you are an amazing teacher. I also collect antique machines, mostly treadle. I can just imagine ladies of yesteryear working on their masterpieces. I love the Lazy Sunday quilt. It's so vibrant. I can't wait to start it.

    ReplyDelete
  93. Such fun to see the reveal . . . again!! You blew my mind on January 1, 2013 when you revealed Easy Street in the morning and then Lazy Sunday as the New Year's Day mystery when you came to our area to teach! I felt like the luckiest Bonnie follower E.V.E.R.!!! Hugs, Allison in North Texas

  94. Love the quilt!! -- make that quilts!! I live scrappy, and am so thankful for the inspiration that I get from you!! Would love to win the set, so I can make my own!

    ReplyDelete
  95. Each of your mystery quilts surpasses my expectations! I love this and I love the colors you used. I can't show it to my daughter or she will want one and I have enough trouble keeping my other mystery quilts that I made with your patterns! I think I will just rotate the quilts and she may have one for a month and then exchange it for another. I would miss seeing them if they were gone longer than that!!!

    ReplyDelete
  96. You've done a superb job...again! Love playing along with you on quilt cam. Your scrap quilts are wonderful!

  102. Spectacular! I would love to win the issues. I don't subscribe to magazines anymore. I'm a snowbird and don't always get all my issues forwarded to me during the winter months. Instead I hunt down issues at quilt shows. Of course then I can't always get all the ones I want. Thanks for the opportunity to win.

    ReplyDelete

  136. Thanks, Bonnie, for a great mystery. This has become a play quilt at Nana's house for my new granddaughter; and since I kept up with your latest "reveals" as I went along, the quilt will be finished before she learns to crawl.

  137. AS I don't have any of those issues I would love to win all four, thanks Bonnie for the chance to win.

  140. I recently subscribed to Quiltmaker and just got my first issue - the one with Lazy Sunday's "reveal." ARRRGH! I'll wait to see if I am so fortunate as to win your drawing - and if not, I will purchase the copies needed to make "Lazy Sunday." I love the original and yes, the Christmas one was the number two palette for me as well. You continue to amaze and inspire! Thanks for the drawing fun!

    ReplyDelete
  147. Lazy Sunday is gorgeous! I wanted to join the fun, but wasn't able to purchase the magazines, and wasn't sure if I wanted to work out the block patterns according to photos posted in the Yahoo group. Seeing the end result does make me want to join the fun! And you said this quilt was done with left-overs from Easy Street? I was expecting more greens and blues. Ha ha. Hope you're having a fabulous time in Alaska!

    ReplyDelete
  148. Beautiful as always, Bonnie! You are an inspiration!

    ReplyDelete
  149. I didn't start subscribing to the magazine until halfway through Lazy Sunday, so would love to have all four of the issues so I could actually make Lazy Sunday. Thanks for another beautiful quilt!

    ReplyDelete
  150. Hi Bonnie,
    I have been stashing blues, white and yellow for sometime now looking for that perfect in the Lazy Sunday Mystery these magazines would sure help. ;)
    I love the blue/cheddar Four by Nine, I have 6 yards of cheddars screaming to be used. Oh did I mention Scraps hidden in every closet. ha ha Thanks for the chance to win.

    ReplyDelete
  151. I would love to win all 4 magazines. I didn't start Lazy Sunday as I knew that we were going to move (from TN to TX). We have been living with my daughter and her family for the last 4 months. I have not been able to sew with my machine that whole time (no room in the house for me to set my stuff up). :( Finally we are going to be looking for our own place in a couple of weeks and I would love to make this for my new home. Batiks are my favorite and my batiks would be soooo happy in that quilt. I could cuddle and pet them every night.

    Thanks Bonnie for all the inspiration that you inspire in all of us.

    ReplyDelete
  152. Thank you for another wonderful mystery quilt, I think yours were the best. I also think that having a few weeks in between installments would allow more of us to participate. Quiltmaker should contract you for a new mystery quilt yearly to be published just as Lazy Sunday & your followers would greatly increase the magazine subscriptions - I would be the first. When asked what I would like for my birthday (Aug. 3rd) and I quickly replied a signed copy of String Fling by BH. If I were to win the magazines that would make this the best one yet. Thank you for all you share with us. Looking forward to the next quilt-cam. Enjoy Alaska & send us lots of pictures. :-)

  155. OMGosh! I just love LOVE the borders on that mystery quilt. Lazy Sunday is such an appropriate name... lazy SUMMER Sunday is what it puts me in mind of. And I'm totally with you, Bonnie, on that Christmas version made by the QM staffer.

  156. I love your sense for design. Thanks for your mystery quilts - I have participated in Orca Bay and Easy Street and am now a fan!

  157. Am loving the finish pics-Have another top to construct first but did cut my setting pieces last night! (Changed up to 2" strips, because I had those and do realize I will have to adjust the total of pieces in the pieced borders-haven't totally refigured that yet-quilt will be a bit bigger-but can handle that!) Love your patterns and quilt cam and blog and all you do for us. A great big THANK YOU shout out to a wonderfully generous person. Bonnie Hunter, you rock my world!

  159. You inspired me to use leaders and enders, but I haven't yet gotten into the habit of preparing the scraps for leader and ender nine patches. I just need to get my sewing room organized to do this, hopefully real soon.

  165. Thanks for posting a shot of the different colourways! It really shows how a quilt can take on a totally different personality in other colours. I especially love the border on this quilt, and would love a chance to win the magazines. Thanks Bonnie!

  167. Now that I see the colors, and there are many, this would make a great scrap buster. I love the purple colors. I have a friend that loves these colors and she is getting married soon. This would make a great gift for her.

  169. You never cease to amaze me. You are such an inspiration and I always have one of your projects sitting here by my machine as my leader/ender project. It is still work but it 'feels free' to me! Enjoy your time in Alaska.

  172. I still haven't done a mystery - I like sort of knowing what something is going to turn out like. But I need to jump in, because I have loved every ending quilt you've come up with. You never disappoint.

Thanks for sharing your love of design and quilt making!

  181. I love the REVEAL! I have all the issues but didn't start this one. I'm almost to the Flimsy stage with my Midnight Flight. I've spent a LOT of Midnights up with it at 2 different Retreats. My 2 new grand daughters quilts are finished so I can justify starting something NEW, Right???

  182. Well, you've done it again. Another wonderful quilt. I am partial to blue and green and I love the look of the blue and green version in the lower right corner. I also really like the simple look of the four by nine quilt.

  183. How fun to see the reveal! Mystery quilts intrigue me. I've done several, and MOST of them were beautiful. Enjoy Alaska!

  184. After doing the texas tumbleweeds I thought I would need a rest from "Bonnie quilts" but I do love the fabric colors in this quilt. Would love to have the Magazine. It has some really good patterns and articles for us everyday quilters.
    Thanks again for sharing.

  194. I would love to have all the parts to the mystery in Quiltmaker. I love the scrappy quilts. You have taught me so much thru the couple years I have known you. I appreciate the advice and love to see what you come up with next...keep the surprises coming!!!

  195. Bonnie, you've made me a believer in mystery quilts. this is beautiful in all the colorways shown!

  196. Hi Bonnie - So excited to see the reveal. I've been following along and despite just completing a move from Illinois to Florida - I have my blocks organized and ready to go....ALMOST. I've actually been waiting to start the rectangles that you used in the border. (ADORE the border OBTW!!! ADORE) I varied my colors just a little, so I've been waiting to decide where those rectangles would be used before I selected a color. A little bit of a cheat considering it's a "Mystery" but I think we'd all agree a completed quilt is so much better than a regretted color choice. Thanks for sharing so much of yourself and advancing my quilting by LEAPS and BOUNDS! Big Hugs, Terri
