Friday Night Sew-in – perfect timing for Roll Roll Cotton Boll new Quiltville mystery
I’ve been waiting for the first clue of Bonnie Hunter’s newest mystery quilt…”Roll Roll Cotton Boll”. I was able to print out the first clue before the clock struck 12:00 last night ~ one of the benefits of living on the West coast!!
I changed my colours after spending last weekend away at a quilting retreat and spotting this colour combo in a magazine.Up to that time I was struggling with shopping from my stash. Chioices were teal, purple, gold, cream which I loved but couldn’t choose a constant so I kept switching it up. Not satisfied with any of them. I’ve now chosen light pink, greens, blacks and tone on tone white/light cream with a double pink/raspberry as my “constant” (Bonnie’s lingo for one colour that ties the scrappy colours together nicely).
The first step is 3 2″ strips; two pink with one green in the middle. Then cut into 2″ sub-strips. Here is the result: 172 units done!
Until next time!
