Mystery Monday Link-Up, Part 5!

The day after.

Also known as Boxing Day, or Second Christmas, or this year ---3rd day of Hanukkah!

It’s also our  En Provence Mystery Monday Link-Up number FIVE!

I hope this last clue was easier for you.  And you were able to use your favorite methods for cranking out the units needed in part 5.

Maybe you tried some NEW methods as well.

I hope you had a WONDERFUL Christmas with those you love close in your heart, if not under the same roof.

If you are celebrating the Festival of Lights, I hope the voices of children around you bring back memories of Hanukkah’s past.

And through it all, I hope you were able to squeeze in a bit of pieceful stitching for yourself!


En Provence for Gifting!

I love Jen’s story on how she is gifting her En Provence quilt to her mother – some assembly required! LOL!  I know she will love it when it is all done! 


Charlotte is loving her new Essential Triangle Tool!

Thank you for the virtual Pfeffernusse, Charlotte!


And Nanns are also done and waiting for Part 6!

Hi Bonnie, I hope you had a merry and bright Christmas with your family. The elves have been naughty though - the linky is scheduled to "open" in 6 days!

Nann said...

Thanks for including my FB post as one of the screen shots -- but I'm with the previous commenter: the linkup isn't active yet!

Unknown said...

Thanks so much for the mystery and all your quilty goodness. Linking my pictures is so above my computer skills but wanted to say this is a joy in my life. Thanks again

Bonnie K. Hunter said...

It's fixed! Try it again! The linky was auto set to 2017. LOL

Bonnie, what a fun Daughter you are! I love the gift that you gave to your Mother. How awesome and thoughtful you are!

Dino said...

There are some pretty neat guesses and designs using what we have so far.

Carolyn said...

Haven't gotten the last one quilted yet either. but it's together and in line for quilting. with 6 other UFO's!!!

Linda C said...

Happy Tuesday! Bonnie,I am loving the pace you are setting for us! I am caught up and ready for Friday to dawn! We are still having Christmas celebrations this week, so the slow pace is a winner for me. Thank you. Wishing you and everyone out there in Quiltvillemania a wonderful New Year...There is lots of potential in 2017.

Annemarie Smithers said...

Can I make a suggestion for the title of your photo or link?
Instead of telling us what part it is, we all know that, why not use your name as the title and where you are from?
eg Annemarie Smithers, NSW Australia.
I would love to know more about you all.
Just a suggestion.

Bonnie, I want to belatedly thank you for your clear tute and photos of the TriRecs rulers. I used them this past year for my RSC16 twinkler Stars, but was always confused and had to rip. Your photo showing the triangle with the two magentas sitting in place on each side was the light bulb for me. I just line them up like that and away I go. Thank you, thank you. Now I can finish them easily.

Kerry said...

Ditto what PaulaB said, Bonnie! I've not used the TriRecs before although I bought them a while back with a view to attempting something with them. So this is the first guinea pig session I've had. All went really well and hardly any trimming. Well impressed. I also have had much better success with points after measuring and cutting with the ruler marks on the fabric - always much to learn. Started late here and only done some of the pieces but happy with getting back to sewing again (house is a tip but hey ho).
Many thanks for the great tutorials, I'm so enjoying your mystery very much.
