“Megunticook Marmalade” Quilt

Oops!  This post got published too early by mistake…

My apologies.

Here is my Bonnie Hunter 2017 Mystery Quilt “On Ringo Lake.”  I changed the colors and am calling it “Megunticook Marmalade” after our local lake and river.

I quilted with 12-inch “Simple Feathers” by Anne Bright–in a light grey Signature thread.  I love my backing–a Cotton+Steel fabric.

Here’s a corner.

And some shots of the quilt top.

 

 

This quilt is…beyond…intricate.  It’s one of the hardest quilts I’ve ever made, and it is my 142nd quilt.  I love tiny pieces and units, so that wasn’t it.  I was stressed by how many of the seams butted up to each other–and this quilt does have some “knots” at intersections, though I tried clipping into seams as much as possible.  It also took me forever to put the top together.  Many, many, many hours.  I am now seeing all sorts of secondary patterns, so I suppose it was worth all the work and stress.

Bonnie Hunter is an amazing designer.  For sure.
