Roll Roll Cotton Boll Mystery

I've joined the current mystery, called Roll Roll Cotton Boll, hosted by Bonnie Hunter at Quiltville.  I've changed up the colors a bit from those that Bonnie is using (Pink is not my color).  I'm going to use Blue, yellow/gold, green/brown, neutrals, and a rust color for the constant.
Bonnie is well known for her complex scrap quilts which use many, many small pieces.  Her mysteries are lots of fun to do.  Bonnie will send out a clue about once a week.  The clue will tell which colors to use and how to cut them and sew them together.  Little by little the blocks come together and the mystery is solved.  I've always loved the quilts that I've made from Bonnie's mystery clues.  Stay tuned; I'll try to post pics of each of my steps as I work through the clues.

Linda -- tried to send you an email after your comment on my blog... but this does fine. Hum, retired teacher and librarian... sounds familiar although I spent my career as a librarian in an elementary school. Thanks for the kind comment on my blog. Your RRCB colors are great. When are you starting? I haven't finished last years so I'm not starting this one. But I am saving the instructions in case I want to some time. Have a great day. B.
