Today’s post is about my own version of the Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt, Chilhowie 2023. I was not prepared for the fast pace of this project but kept pushing through. I was delighted with the result.
I kept my quilt simple and only did what the pattern suggested, no more and no less. As this was my first time with this yearly project, I felt less would be more.
The close-up images below show how pretty this pattern is on this quilt.
Quilt Back, Binding and Label
In the spirit of a quit named after flowers, I chose a pretty green fabric for the backing. I did the binding in a purple found in the quilt top. I love the effect.
Of course, no quilt is complete without a label. This time I chose to embroider the label on the backing fabric.
I highly recommend doing one of these at least once. You learn new skills and there is a feeling of accomplishment.
