Check Out This Online Mystery Quilt

Hey, Bonnie Hunter's Quiltville blog is having a mystery quilt starting today! Click here for a link to the Supply List, and click here for a link to the first installment.

If you don't know Bonnie's work, she's written a wonderful book called Scraps & Shirttails in which she discusses her revolutionary way to set up your scraps to make them usable.

My current project is string pieced, but I'm using Bonnie's idea of using men's shirts (the larger the better from the thrift store) in quilts. You've seen these blocks before, but here they are again so that you can see the shirting fabrics mixed with quilting cottons and batiks...

I'm nearly finished with the second batch of blocks, so you'll be seeing the whole group again soon.
