Quilts By Friends:  Linda Satkowski’s “Quilt-lets” and More

Linda hs been making these coral “quilt-lets” (Katja Marek design) for some time.  They are really starting to come together now.

She is also working on Bonnie Hunter’s “wild and goosey” block and is way further along than I am. She gives me renewed interest in returning to this pattern.  I like the way she using consistent color in each block.  Mine are scrappy, and I have not worked on them since last May.

“On Ringo Lake” Quilt Top Done

Finished the top.  “On Ringo Lake” is Bonnie Hunter’s 2017 Mystery Quilt.  She releases the first clue the Friday after Thanksgiving.  The digital pattern is now available on her website, quiltville.com

I changes colors from Bonnie’s aqua, coral, dark brown, and neutrals to my grey, gold, black, and neutrals.

The secondary patterns are awesome.

I would rate this quilt as difficult.  And I’m an accomplished seamstress.  Bonnie’s directions are really good, and she shows you multiple ways to do the units.  I like to do her quilts because I always learn a lot.  This time was no exception.  I love the new “corner” ruler she introduced.  It sits on my cutting table all the time now.

Not sure how I’ll quilt it.  To remind, here is my Cotton+Steel backing and the gold binding I found:
