En Provence--Clue Three is Done!


I still LOVE the palette I chose and this week I got to sew with more colors!
 
 Friday afternoon I got right to clue three of En Provence!  I am doing two shades of green instead of purples for this clue.  I spent most of Saturday afternoon sewing at Barb's house and got all of them made and clipped. 
 Today Kathy and I met BJ at 35th Ave Sew and Vac and signed up for the quilt below--it is the ten dollar quilt and we do a block per month all next year.  It is not our favorite but it gives us an opportunity to get together every month and catch up!

 BJ gifted me some Packer fabric!  Yay soon I need to get going on another Packer quilt as it is time to add some more to my Green Bay Packer Quilts Page!  If you have one you want to share, feel free to add it there!  I have made several Bonnie mysteries in Packer colors and I LOVE how they turn out!
 I also hit the clearance section and got some more greens in case there are more greens in En Provence.  The shades I am using were not plentiful in my stash so I feel better having these just in case!
 Also found a half off Cotton and Steel kit to add to the little bit I already had. I will be on the lookout for something cool to sew with it!
I spent some time tonight prepping for next week's sewing meetup. We are going to be making small design boards (I am using Lori Holt's tutorial) and I cannot wait to have a few of these as they have been on my list for a long time!
Already looking forward to clue four this Friday.  I love the mystery so much and only wish everyone could just relax and sew along and not stress on every little detail!
Linking up with Quiltville and looking forward to seeing your progress too!

Your palette for this year is beautiful! The green 4-patches are a nice change from all the purple ones around.

Love your colors & the inspiration behind them!

I love your fabrics: great choice. Your 4-patches are beautiful and are much brighter and "happier" than all that purple. My purple results I find somewhat disappointing.

Awesome colour choices!
I find that people do the mystery quilt in the same way they do life... some folks like to make everything as complicated and stressful as possible :)

I, too, hit a sale to supplement my options for the BH Mystery. Have fun with your $10 Quilt next year!! I always forget that you can plonk different blocks into a setting. Personally, I really like the quilt.

Looks like everything is really coming together nicely. You colors should produce a very vibrant quilt. I am looking forward to following your progress. I'm sticking to Bonnie's colors this time, but went in a totally different direction on Grand Illusion. It's great fun to experiment.

I love your colors too. I am taking it easy and not stressing about it. I have all of clue 3 sewn, just need to finish pressing. I love your attitude and how we can relax and enjoy the mystery.
