Good Fortune Mystery Update: Top is Done!

I managed to finish my top for Bonnie Hunter’s Good Fortune mystery quilt a few weeks ago, but have been remiss in posting pictures! Because I wanted to size it up to a queen from the “couch” size her directions finished at, I needed to add some additional borders. It worked out well, then, that I mis-counted step 1 and made many, many, extra four patches that I could work into a border.

My finished top is so big I had to fold it to get a picture of it! I have to wait a few weeks to get it quilted since I’m borrowing time on Lynn’s longarm as I don’t have anywhere big enough to baste it at my house, much less have a desire to lug around anything this huge on my sit-down machine. For now it’s folded nicely with some matching thread waiting for it’s time on the longarm.

  1. Looks very pretty. I missed doing her quilt this year but had several projects in process and Christmas things. I did keep a copy may do it in Christmas colors this summer. Yours is great!

  2. Great Quilt! By the way, did you ever watch “Potato Peel Pie” movie on Netfix or Amazon Prime (can’t remember which one)? It was good.
