En Provence Mystery Quilt by Bonnie Hunter

Clue #1 is making 4 patches from neutrals cut at 2"  I dug into my 2" strip basket, but not too many neutrals were there. I had used many in a Leader and Ender project, Rick Rack Nines, also a Bonnie Hunter pattern.  But, never fear, I have oodles of neutral fat quarters. A quilting group, not really a guild because we have no bylaws, officers or many rules, exchanged birthday fat quarters for several years. I asked for neutrals 2 years in a row and now have lots and lots. I have used up the already cut strips, so now on the slice into the fat quarters. Twenty four patches are done. A couple of strip sets are in the wings and several twosies are awaiting being matched up. 

Are you joining the Mystery?  If you are interested, check out the Intro and the #1 clue  HERE. This is the first one I have actually started, although I followed along on Grand Illusion and Allietare.

We drove home from Colorado, yesterday in very strong winds. There was only 1 very short snow squall so the trip was OK.  Last night lots of wind and snow. Luckily not much accumulation, but it is still windy. My weather app on my phone says it 27 degrees, feels like 11 degrees. BRRRRR!!

So when I took a break from making four patches, I put up a little Christmas.

 This is a stitchery I did a couple of years ago. It hangs on the wall beside my chair in the living room.

And this is a 3 wick candle made by my sister sitting in an iron stand made by her husband. The small table topper I made lots of years ago, it is a quilt as you go, and reverses to orange, green and some jack-o-lantern fabric. Very versatile.
