“Megunticook Marmalade” Quilt
Oops! This post got published too early by mistake…
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.
