Adding Pressure

Published by at 3:04 pm under creating

You know there is so much to do during the month of December, why not start a quilt? I told myself I wasn’t going to do it. Not going to get involved in another quilt project for a while. Then I saw the colors for the En Provence, mystery quilt. I was hooked and for the past three weeks, have been working on these blocks. They are part of a mystery quilt project through Bonnie K. Hunter. Bonnie visited Aix en Provence, France while on a Mediterranean cruise and was inspired to design a quilt using colors from the scenery. Each Friday a new clue is given. We were given ideas for fabric colors which I went with. Some quilters are changing the colors and I have been amazed at all the beautiful combinations of colors. Bonnie is well known for her quilts made with scraps left over from other quilt making projects. These types of quilts are often described as scrappy. I like that type of quilt because they go with many types of decor. They make a cozy quilt to cuddle up in and enjoy a cold winter’s night. Here is a picture of my progress so far. 221 neutral 4-patch blocks, 168 purple and light purple 4-patch blocks. 100 magenta 3 1/2″ blocks made using Tri-Recs rulers.

      Oh wow, those squares look beautiful! I’m sure the quilt is going to turn out wonderfully. What a neat thing to be a part of.

      You’ve done a great job of keeping up with the clues. You’ve got some very pretty scraps in those blocks.
