Grassy Creek Mystery!

Welcome, Quiltvillians!

It's Mystery Season in Quiltville!  

This year's Quiltville Winter Mystery is titled Grassy Creek, and I know you are going to love participating!

I will be placing all posts pertaining to our mystery here on this tab for easy access.

Links are manually added AFTER the main post has gone live on the blog, so if the post you are looking for isn't here yet under the Grassy Creek tab - allow me some grace time and please either check the main blog page, or come back later.

Mystery season is the busiest season of all for me, and I am one person trying to keep caught up.

This mystery will be retiring after our reveal, be rewritten into regular pattern format and placed in the digital patterns section of the Quiltville Store for purchase.  

PLEASE SAVE YOUR CLUES WHERE YOU CAN FIND THEM!  After the mystery is retired, I will be unable to provide you with missing parts - you will be redirected to the pattern page for purchase.

If you are using the 3-in-1 color tool in place of paint chips, please know this - you can print the paint chips from the link given in the introductory post, or just look at it on your screen to find the corresponding color (OF YOUR CHOSING, there are no wrong choices.) from the color tool.

Jodi compiled her choices as:

Red = orange-red 20-12
Orange = orange 21-28
Gold = orange-yellow 23-29
Green = Chartreuse 2-28
Gray = ?? Dark shade/tone of light violets?

My thought is - don't over think it.  You should be pushing the boundaries of each color family and they shouldn't all be the same dye lot.  Red is red, orange is orange etc - there are no wrong colors.

I hope this helps.

As always - remember - No Whining!

  1. HOORAH! Ready to head on down that road!

  2. Yippy! It's mystery time!

  3. i was debating whether to do the mystery this year, but, seeing the name of it has me really wanting to do it. i grew up on a Grassy Creek, but in eastern Kentucky. so, I'm thinking I will have to!

  4. I can't wait. My machine is in repair, so I'll have to collect the clues and anxiously await the return of my machine! Bonnie L.

  5. Time for STASH and Dash!

  6. I am new to quilting and am going to give this a try. Excited to playn along.

  7. The color choices are beautiful, and WOW did they come at the most perfect time. Spending time in Lewisburg, WV gave me the opportunity to select most of my choices at "Friendly Fabrics" in nearby Fairlea. I'm exchanging Show Stopper for Sable Brown to be more in line with my color scheme in our bedroom. Ready to get started!

  8. This will be my first mystery quilt. I'm excited.

  9. I am also going to give this mystery quilt a try. Love BOM quilts, also love scrapy quilts. Been quilts for years and this will be a new experience for me. Also have plenty of scraps except gray, not my go to color.

  10. I am finishing up stray projects in anticipation! Ready to start now!

  11. Yay!! I have been looking forward to doing another mystery quilt with you. I have done the last two. I love the challenge and to learn new things from you.

  12. I am just starting to recover from Covid and pneumonia. I can't go out and not much energy for any activity, but I always have enough energy to quilt. Thank you Bonnie.

  13. This will be my first Bonnie Hunter Mystery. I am now retired and plan to be able to keep up. I've seen many past completed ones, and they are always wonderful.

  14. Looking forward to starting my first quilt with Bonnie, any idea how much fabric of each colour I need to buy? As we are in lockdown I will have to send for it. Thanks
