En Provence 2016 Mystery Quilt

En Provence is the 2016 mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter. There is something about trying to do a mystery quilt during November and December with only a week between clues that makes them impossible for me to keep up. I did get some of the pieces cut in 2016, but that was about the extent of it. In Part 1, directions were to cut neutral fabric to make four-patch blocks measuring 3 1/2″. Did I mention I had to make 221 of them? Same number in the first post /en-provence-part-1/

True to Bonnie Hunter’s scrappy quilts, the abundance of pieces one needs to cut is exhausting to think about. Anyone who loves scrappy quilts can certainly use up plenty of scraps in making her quilts.

2023 En Provence Progress

It is 2023 when El Provence top saw some progress. Since 2016 the only activity this quilt top got was a yearly dusting of the plastic case of all the fabric that will someday make up the top. In May 2023, I cut all but one hundred pieces and even got some other blocks made. Then it was time to take another break from all the pieces. Hopefully, it will not be another seven years before I get back to it!

on ringo lake, another bonnie hunter pattern

I have many patterns from Bonnie’s mystery quilts, and On Ringo Lake is another one I’ve started some years back. It is one I also have on my wish list to finish this year, or at least make noteworthy progress on completing.
