My Customer, Thankful participated in Bonnie's Mystery Quilt though a facebook group named Quiltville's Open Studio.  As you can see Thankful did not do her quilt with scrap fabrics. She used one color for each suggested color by Bonnie.

Bonnie shared a clue starting around Thanksgiving through the beginning of the year for the 2015 Mystery Quilt. Bonnie's Website is Quiltville.com and her blog is Quiltville's Quips and Snips. You will find a wealth of information on all of her sites and groups.

YES!  My customers bring me the coolest quilts!

Hello =). Your quilting is really fun! I tried Grand Illusion and it was a leeeeetle over the top piecing for my "pea-brain". This one is really pretty!

I love the ribbon quilting you added. I would have never thought to use two different thread colors, what a great effect it gives!
