On Ringo Lake

The 2017 Bonnie Hunter mystery begins for us with the Fifth Annual Kickoff.
A large group gathered today to begin the first clue.
Sponsored by Angela and Kathy, the celebratory cake, and above that the labels Angela made!
The fabrics below were my first choice, I had not planned to do the scrappy version, but........
I changed my mind and decided to use up these smaller amounts and make it somewhat scrappy!
Bonnie gave us a break this busy week, the first clue made 3.5" nine patches.
The directions say to make 50 of them but I plan a smaller version of the quilt so I have 28. Any extras can go into the back or wait for another quilt!
Those of us who who brought mystery quilts from the last year show them off at the kick-off of the new one and this is the traditional pose! I failed to make it last year, we were out of town and I never got started, life got in the way!
  Three quilters had their custom made labels attached.
I will be posting progress each week, as the new clues come on Fridays I will do my best to keep up.
