Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt

I am starting a mystery quilt, you can find the instructions on Bonnie Hunter's blog "Quiltville's Quilts and Snips" here for the fabric requirements, and here for Part 1.

The quilt when finished will be for DD3, who is modelling on the photo with my blocks for the first part. I have not finished the 192 4patches, but am on the right way. Over 120 are sewn and pressed already, and a lot of 2 squares are together.

My strips of grey with white and black.

On some strips, I used different fabrics.
 I followed the choice of colours suggested by Bonnie. I am not very adventurous on this one. Except I would not have taken the grey and bright colours, but I would like to have a modern quilt at the end.

 On this photo you can see my plain grey, and the white and black fabrics.

My printed instructions.

My 4patches are still attached, 10 together so I can count them quickly.

Have fun sewing, I am enjoying following somebody else's instructions.

That's a lot of twosies. It will be fun to see how these all turn out.

It looks to me like you're well on your way to a bright, modern quilt. :)

I love your photo! I was thinking that you know I'm doing a Bonnie Hunter mystery again when I end up with those long strings of tiny 4-patch units!

I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn
