Happy New Year and En Provence Clue 6

After my daughter and her boyfriend and our beautiful grandsons have driven away this morning, heading home, until next time I spend New Years Eve sewing away with Bonnie Hunters Mystery Quilt part 6..... I feel so proud of myself for keeping up with each clue.... I can't wait for the final layout. It is very intriguing.
I did use this tutorial for a bit of help with these quarter square triangles. I am a visual person. There are a lot of tutorials out there. This one actually showed it in the same colour layout as Bonnies. It was easier for me to follow.

Sewing away on En Provence clue 6 and a healthy snack!!!!!!



All sewn and ready for pressing open and spinning seams

All ready for trimming

All trimmed and finished well ahead of time....


All nicely stored away for the next clue.
Make sure you go over to look here if you want to know what is happening. Over 100 people link up each week to show what they are making. Thousands are sewing along with the mystery....

  1. Happy New Year! I admire anyone who does Bonnie's mystery quilt, and you're actually up to date?? That is amazing. Can't wait to see the final reveal. I haven't attempted one, because while I do like them, they're just a little too busy for me. And I know I could never keep up with the clues. LOL!

  3. Happy New Year Jo! I've spent the better part of my quiet day cleaning out computer files, rearranging photo files and updating my blog a bit so it's fun for me to see you sewing! You'll have to let me know if the birds take to your scraps as they did with mine!

  4. Happy new year!

    Your mystery units are looking good. I had some of that "cutting board" green fabric. Bits of it have gone into several previous quilts, but sadly there's none left, so none in my En Provence.

  5. Love your mystery quilt Jo. Hope that 2017 brings you health and happiness. I at least got a grandie from 2016 so it was a good year.

  12. Well done on the Bonnie quilt front. I am very impressed! Love the orderly way in which you work. Saw your link on Bonnie's post too. I looked especially for it, quite exciting to "know" someone who is doing the Bonnie Mystery!
