On Ringo Lake

Last year the Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt was On Ringo Lake. I did not work on it much in early 2018. As a waited for the next mystery, I have dug out the old mysteries and took a look at what I needed to do to finish. Well Ringo Lake has a ways to go. So I have worked on it the past couple of weeks. 

I got the Chevron units together and I finished the blocks. I did as I used the current mystery clues as Leaders and enders. I now have all blocks done. There was only 12 blocks done so this took some time. Now I can put on the chevron units and start to think about putting the blocks in to rows.

Good Fortune is under way! 
If you want to do this years mystery, Check out Bonnie Hunter's Mystery site. Last Friday she released Clue 3 so easy to get started and not be too far behind. 

I have all of clue 1 done the Red four patches. I have a few more to trim up on clue 2 the Blue Triangles. Then I a just starting clue 3 the green chevrons and little triangles. I do have all my fabric cut out for clue 3 and have done the test sewing. I am getting them the correct size so now I can be full steam ahead. 

I just love to use these white flannel pallets to use as I sew. I can see the fabrics laid out in the counted piles. I use the pallets to take my units to the ironing board or the design wall. 

Once I have the units done and counted out I use one of these 13" square boxes. I can see what is in the box. I can take the project with me if I am sewing somewhere else, like mom's house. I use these blocks for most of my quilting blocks. 

Bonnie is also doing a link up for this clue #3.

  1. Like your colors for Good Fortune. I didn't start On Ringo Lake last year and I keep raiding the fabrics pulled for it.
