On Ringo Lake - Clue 1

If you have been a follower of my blog, you know that every year at this time, I am doing Bonnie Hunter Quiltville's Mystery Quilt.  I have done the last three years mystery quilts, Grand Illusion, Allitare, and En Provence.

This year Bonnie is calling the mystery quilt, On Ringo Lake.  Her color choice was coral, turquoise, dark brown and light background.  Of course, all of her choices were from her scrappy stash.

Last year for the En Provence I went with her colors.  For the Grand Illusion and the Allitare, I went with my own choice of colors.  Again this year, I have decided to go with my own choice of colors.

My fabric is from the various fabric lines by Fig Tree, manufactured by Moda Fabrics.  I like the softness these colors bring, and the small floral prints will do well in the small pieces that these mystery quilts end up, because it is based on using up scraps.

Clue 1, came out the day after Thanksgiving, Black Friday.  Since I chose not to deal with the shopping crowds, I was able to get the pieces cut out and all sewn up.

So, clue one is done.

Now back to getting my backlog of UFO's done.  I am making great strides in getting them done, just having lousy weather here in the Pacific Northwest to be able to take pictures.  I have several quilts that I have gotten done, but need pictures and to do individual blog posts about them.  

I also got my summer goal project, repainting the kitchen cabinets all done!!  

These are the before photos:

These are the after photos:

I even went ahead and refinished my laundry cabinets as well.  The laundry room is off my kitchen and I needed the cabinets to look cohesive.  

I'll be posting at least weekly for this mystery quilt, as the clues come out weekly until New Year's Day.
