I picked up the paint chips for Bonnie Hunter's 2017 Mystery Quilt, but I lack many of the chosen colors in my stash. I'll follow along but it's not likely I'll do it this year. I ordered the special rulers...just in case, though she stated it isn't necessary to have them, but what the heck, I'll have them for next time. Right?
My friend Panda is planning to do it so she went fabric shopping and I tagged along. While I didn't get any fabric, I did pick up some Insul-Bright. I've had it on my shopping list forever as I thought maybe I'd make some new potholders. I've been using ones that are pretty worn out and stained; most are 21 years old or older...time for some new ones!
Panda saves her scraps for me, and had given me a bag or two that night, so I have culled through them and sorted them by color. She tends to use brighter colors and different prints than I would, so it's nice to have some new variety in my scraps...
