Bonnie Hunter released her 2019 mystery quilt on Friday. All of the clues will be posted on the Frolic! tab on her site. Normally I wait to see what the quilt looks like, but I decided to do it. One reason was that when I read through the whole first group of instructions I was, once again, impressed with Bonnie Hunter. She may not have an MQG aesthetic, but she has sound techniques and good designs.
I am mostly following her color scheme so far. There is only one clue, so that isn’t saying much.
One of the reasons I decided to do this was what Bonnie said about cutting. She said
“When cutting, do NOT leave the ruler line you are measuring by on the mat NEXT to your fabric. Get it UP ON THE FABRIC. Be sure the line is ON the fabric, not next to it. Don’t leave the line on the mat.”
This is something I never have been able to find out. Nobody really taught me to rotary cut, so I never knew where the lines on the rulers went until I read this post. I should be embarrassed to tell you, but I am not. I make quilts I love and I have good technique. It can always be better and this is me getting better.
