Ooh, I love the counter thingie. I am trying not to think too much about it because I am so excited! You will have to share the secret of how to get that countdown thing on to a blog.
What a cool counter! Have a happy Thanksgiving!
Love the counter - it's my first mystery quilt. There have been a few quilters from Australia joining in which is great!
LOVE it! I'm "sew" ready! ☺
I am participating, it is my first mystery :-)
Picking my fabric now; can't start until Sunday!
The counter is GREAT!!!!! Still pulling my fabs together
Happy Thanksgiving to you too. My first Bonnie mystery. I will be starting late. I Have to work.
Woo hoo! Awesome counter, dude! This is my third Bonnie mystery. I started "Roll Roll, Cotton Boll" but haven't finished it... the pieces turned out the wrong size. But I did finish "Easy Street"! Have you done any of Bonnie's other mysteries?I've got my fabrics set aside and I will be doing NOTHING but working on this on Friday until the first clue is finished. (Thank goodness for leftovers, my family can feed themselves while I sew LOL.) What colors are you using? I've chosen to use BMW's "M" colors. You can read about it on my blog if you like...http://valeriespatchwork.blogspot.com/2013/10/making-celtic-solstice-intro.html
It will be here before we know it. Enjoy your Thanksgiving USA
HMMM. Thought for a minute you were my quilter friend Kevin, but another one???
Becky, I thought the same thing....just another quilting Kevin.
Super Awesome Countdown+Men Who Quilt= Epic Win!
I am so excited to start my first mystery quilt and my first Bonnie Hunter quilt! I doubt I will be able to keep up since we are winding down the semester and heading into finals. Hopefully I can catch up over break. :)
I am waiting to pull my fabric until Thursday night so I stick to only using my stash...Love the countdown!
Kevin!! Hi!! Curious to know what your colours will be. You and I did similar colours for Easy Street although yellow was more dominant in mine and blue in yours. I have to work Friday so will start on Saturday. I've chosen the rebel route this year. I purchased a bolt of batik while at Fabric Depot last summer. I have been waiting for the right quilt before cutting into it. I decided that Celtic Solstice is that quilt! So rather than going scrappy, I've purchased coordinating fabrics, going totally against the grain of what Bonnie does. But I love my colours and I want to do the focus fabric justice so it will be interesting to see how mine turns out. I'll have to check back in your posts to see if you've posted colours.
Looking forward to this mystery. It will be my first! And, yes, I did buy some fabric as I used up my neutrals on the BOM I've been doing with JUQ!
Lots of Aussies participating in this mystery! great fun! I'm off shopping tomorrow to add to my stash, so excited!
Not so patiently waiting. Have to work Friday but will be rushing home ASAP. Fabrics assembled, blades sharpened, bobbins threaded...bring it on!
I'll be cheering you and others on! Have a Happy Thanksgiving!
Love it! I just posted on my blog three days to go, little did I know that it was only 2 days, 1 hour, 31 minutes and 2 seconds! WTG!Happy Thanksgiving to all!
I in, I just hope to get the borders on Easy Street this week before it all starts. I plan to take some time off work on Friday to get started.
I am using purple, teal/ aqua, red, and orange with white for background. Let the fun begin!!! Soon!!!
I'm in. This is my first BH mystery. Love all the excitement.
Love the counter !! Happy thanksgiving :)
This will be my first ever mystery. I don't even know what is supposed to happen! I'll have to log on and do what I am told! I am using Bonnie's colors just to avoid confusing myself. Just found your blog Kevin- I am enjoying it very much! Happy Holidays!Donna B in Harwich MA
As exciting as Christmas!! Can't wait, two more sleeps!
I think I have included an afternoon nap!!
Can't wait to start, this will be my first BH Mystery and I am planning on doing Pineapple Crazy as my L's & E's. Happy Quilting from Western Australia :) Great job on the Countdown Clock Kevin!!!!
Hi Kevin, too much fun!....This will be my 4th Mystery. Have a wonderful Thanksgiving...
Lets get this party started!
LOL. You know I'm playing along...I will just get a bit of a late start; traveling back home late Friday afternoon, but Friday LATE night and Saturday should be all mine for Part 1 :)I'll be sure to check in, so you had BETTER post your progress on Friday :p
Too funny! I will be making a mini. I had changed my mind in Shipshewana when I found more fabric. Nope, that was not acceptable to everyone in Shipshewana. They committed me to doing a mini. AND NO I'M NOT MAKING TWO!!!!!
I'm ready to go!
I have done all of Bonnie's mysteries but am still so excited for the next one. Have loved them all. Fabrics are all ready to go.Happy Turkey Day from Canada.
Hahahahaha!!!!!!! This made my day!
So excited...but bummed I have to work for 4 hours during prime Black Friday Quilting time! I think I'm going to nap early and set my alarm to wake up at MIDNIGHT EST!

I'm ready - the rulers has arrived to day :)
I have done every one of Bonnie's mysteries. I had decided not to start this one but as usual, changed my mind. I had everything I needed in my stash so that is even better.
I'm excited to start as this is my first Bonnie Hunter Mystery Quilt.
I have family coming over tomorrow, but I'll be looking at that clue first thing tomorrow and hope to start cutting on Saturday....or maybe Friday night. This is my fourth Bonnie mystery. Number 3 is still in pieces, but it will keep for now. Let the fun begin!!!
OK, I'm going to commit to making another Bonnie mystery, but my fabrics are hiding somewhere in my stash. I can't decide what colors to use. Will make that decision based on which clue is first! This will be totally unplanned and spontaneous. Here it is 1:40 am and there is not clue yet!!! I'm waiting.
I am in for another Bonnie mystery! I worked on getting all 188 blocks done today and ready for clue #2. I am happy I chose the small size :) I am making mine in reds, royal blues, light blues, golds and off white for the neutrals. It will be a Quilt of Valor. Can't wait to see how all the quilts evolve. Tanya in Springfield, MO
