Mystery Monday Link-Up, Part 6 & 7!

All over the interwebs, En Provence quilt tops and even quilted quilts are making themselves known!

I am just SO thrilled with how everyone’s quilts are turning out, and loving every version I have sign whether you have stuck with the color pallet I used, or have blazed your own trail toward your own vision, there are some FABULOUS quilts just knocking my socks off every day and I am so excited for this Mystery Monday Link-Up so we can check out everyone’s progress!

While I have shared photos from Facebook over our last few Mystery Monday Link-Ups, I thought today I would grab some embedded photos from Instagram to set the stage for today.

It is just like Christmas when I click our designated hashtags of #emprovencequilt and #quiltvillemystery and see what people have posted.  If you are hashtagging your progress, please be sure to include these two very important tags as they are the ones I am using.  #quiltvillemystery has NO YEAR after it, so we can always check on what other mysteries are in the gallery as well.  No one likes to have to type in different years to find what they are looking for.

Aren't these colors just the bee's knees?? WOW!

I love how she got her hubby in on the act!

Even the basting process is exciting!

I really love the color changes Fiona made!

Check out Frieda's colors! She is putting this together in quadrants for ease of assembly.  Where there is a will, there is a way to get the job done!

Now it’s your turn.  I can’t wait to see what progress you have to share!

It's a chilly brisk morning in Prescott Arizona where I am heading out to give a presentation to the Thumb Butte Quilters Guild, followed by an afternoon Strip Twist workshop.  It will be a full day of fun!


Quiltville Quote of the Day!

Live life to the fullest, and take all the photos you can.  Some day the memories of what we DID will be worth far more than any possessions you could hold.

Have a great week, everyone!

  1. I had to be the 1st Linked- up today! I am us with the chickens, waiting to see if school is cancelled for my 2 grandsons here in Walla Walla. I'm excited to show you my Colors. Mostly from my Fairy Frost Stash by Michael Miller. Just a few errant fabrics with sparkle. I love the softness of it. Thanks again for using the Purple this year!

  2. Except for your quilts. LOL

  3. Thanks, Bonnie, for organizing these free quilt alongs. I haven't actually sewn one yet, but I follow along and watch other's progress. I especially liked seeing all of the different colour combinations from this post....gorgeous.

  4. One quilt pattern, so many gorgeous quilts. I love how unique each one is depending on color and setting choices. I haven't participated but have enjoyed watching the quilts burst forth. Lots of quilts fun.

  5. I posted my top to Instgram just now with the #'s copied and pasted. Is that enough since Indon't have a blog?

  6. They are great quilts. They all look amazing.

  7. Goofed on Linky #93 because I attempted to do it from my phone while sleepy. Have fixed it now, but #93 needs to be zapped. :D

  8. Wonderful quilt tops here.
    Thanks for the fun dear Bonnie!
    Liebe Grüße
