Do you enjoy a good mystery? I am currently listening to “The Leavenworth Case” by Anna Katharine Green serialized on the CraftLit podcast. It’s engaging to listen while I sew quilt blocks and tops.
Speaking of mysteries and quilts, Bonnie K. Hunter has posted the first clue for “Rhododendron Trail,” her free mystery for winter 2021. She typically posts a clue each Friday between Thanksgiving and New Year. This week’s clue is HSTs (half square triangles). Are you quilting along with Bonnie on this year’s mystery?

“Ruby Jubilee” is another intriguing quilt mystery; it is sponsored by the Quiltmaker magazine. Since this is the 40th year of publication of the magazine, the “ruby” year, editor Denise Starck has designed a quilt of various sized blocks and will present instructions for them in each 2022 issue of the magazine. The block designs all derive from Bonnie Hunter’s “Addicted to Scraps” columns published in Quiltmaker over the past ten years. Following the “ruby” theme, Denise’s quilt is red and white, and I have decided to follow suit with various pinks and wines designed by Edyta Sitar of Laundry Basket Quilts.
