- About 5 yards of neutral scraps (FQ and smaller, the more variety the better) I should be ok here, might need to visit the LQS, darn.
Ok, that is a pitiful display of neutrals. Here I thought I had so many.
- About 12 to 15 varieties of green. Bonnie used avacados and yellow greens. Sorry Bonnie, can't do those. As this is for my daughter, I'll use Kelly, Lime, Bright and Deep greens. I use green alot so I'll probably be low, better head to the LQS!
Although, now that I look at what I do have, some of these are so pale they almost look like neutrals.
- About 12 to 15 varieties of pink. Bonnie is using doubles, but I'll use mostly brights, raspberry shades and whatever else I can find.
Lots of pinks here. I buy pinks and sherberts all the time, I just never seem to use them...
Also, we'll need some larger cuts. Two yards of red for the Anchor color (Bonnie is using less, but I'll add a second border and binding) I'm trying to decide between these two fabrics. Any thoughts?
And finally 1/2 yard of green for an inner border:
Mysteries are fun! Quilting is fun! Cricket wants a new quilt! Nice Huh! Won't my daughter be surprised. Do you think she'll notice the intricately appliqued, advanced Cotton Boll pattern she asked for is really a beautiful scrappy Cotton Boll Bonnie Hunter pattern?

This is so exciting because the blocks are looking really nice. The two blocks we're making this month is SO much easier than last month!
Start with four 1 1/2" strips in red, brown and taupe. Sew one taupe strip to one dark strip.
Cut strip sets each into eight 1 1/2"segments. Sew segments together in rows and make a 16 square center that should be trimmed to 4 1/2" x 4 1/2"
The blocks are made with four flying geese, four 2 1/2" corner stones and one 16-square center. This month there are two lovely applique blocks as well. I particularly love the ginko pattern.

We made this pattern as a way to practice on the stitch regulator, but I really love how they've come out.
Perfect little wristlet for a night on the town, or an afternoon lunch with the girls.
