Daily Inspirations and Adventures

Roll Roll Cotton Boll

leave a comment »

Bonnie Hunter is a prolific quilt designer.  (She has been the subject of one of my blog entries several times.) Every year she publishes the directions for a mystery quilt, starting at Thanksgiving and finishing at the end of the year. The fabric choices are given, small pieces are constructed, and after a great deal of sewing, the final design is revealed.  Cathy R. has made several of Bonnie’s mysteries.  She is currently working on Orca Bay, the 2011 mystery.

This is the mystery quilt from 2010, called Roll Roll Cotton Boll.  I am so tempted to make this quilt.  Cathy’s version of the quilt is prettier than Bonnie’s original. (By the way, these are phone camera pictures.  I think you can see the texture of the quilting better, don’t you?)

This is the border.

It is a little cold for 70 degrees here.  You can move…I’m ready to find a new coffee shop.  My favorite barista left DePardeiu.
