Roll, Baby, Roll!

As if I didn't have enough on my plate...(that must be the understatement of the year)I'm jumping in.

I was just going to sit back and watch the clues unfold. But I've gotten sucked in!

I'm doing this.
I love Bonnie Hunter's quilts. They are everything that appeals to me, colorful, scrappy, frugal with lots of great details. I love her motto about "ugly" fabrics, "If it's still ugly, you just didn't cut it small enough!"

Once the first clue came out I knew I had to play along. I love green and pink together. It is all over my house in different shades and combinations. My poor husband has to sleep in a froo-froo bedroom. Which he does willingly to keep my happy. (The first time I saw him, he was wearing a pink Izod button down shirt.) [swoon!]

Yet, I digress. So, I'll post my progress here. I'll put up a picture as soon as step one is completed. Ok, I'm excited now!

Eating is overrated, isn't it? "It's Campbell's soup for dinner, kids!!"


Modified to add my photo! Most of my 172 units are completed. I just have about 40 more to go, but I can't focus any longer. Heading to bed....

Oh, Mary,
I'm doing RRCB also! Your step 1 is pretty. My 11yo made fettucini for supper. SO fun!

Beautiful strips! Mine are so plain compared to yours, but then I didn't have a stash to work with and only limited funds for purchasing fabrics. I'll post my photos later today on Facebook.

Love to you!

Marylu, these look great. I'm also doing the mystery. I'll post some pictures on my blog when I get my first part done. Hopefully today. Shelia

Mary, "making something beautiful with the scraps God has given" resonates with me. So much of what you have put down on your website is profoundly true of my life. Your quilts are lovely, too. God bless you.

I've been interested in this Bonnie Hunter scrap quilt. The colors of pink and green are pulling me in. I wonder how long she'll be having the directions on line. I'd sure like to give it a try! BTW my Thimbleberries quilt is at the longarmer's shop. I hope it'll be ready soon!

Hey! How are you? You came to mind today and I just wanted to say hello! Hope all is well in WA. We're at Fort Bliss now and loving all the sunshine. Take care!
