A World Gone Mad


My mom, who is 92, seems to dislike a lot about how the world works these days - Black Friday drove her over the top - even just watching it on tv - -  "too commercial",  "people acting like fools"... 

and, while I clucked and thought 'ok, she's 92", I had to agree with her to a point...

and then, in the midst of the world gone mad... 

Bonnie Hunter offers her annual FREE mystery quilt.  And she goes to the trouble to offer two sizes, and all the instructions made for a special ruler, and not made for the ruler, and templates, and Inklingo.... next year she is just going to make the quilts for everyone. 

Thank you, Bonnie, for your generosity, and for resisting the "what's in it for me" mentality of our world... for just a bit...

My parts - well here they are.  not sure about the colors, but here I go...

I am trying to use mostly 'soft ' colors, with the brown being the single dark color.  Can't tell yet if this will work.   Am also using a couple of non-scrappy colors, since I tend to like things a little more controlled... 

I'm not finished with clue one, but am already eager to see what clue two is!!!! 

Happy Quilting,

Kate

PS - IMMEDIATELY AFTER POSTING THIS I REALIZED I HATE THAT BROWN... TRIED A COUPLE WITH A SOFTER CAMEL COLOR AND IT WAS LIKE SAYING "AHHH"... so much better!  Oh well, better to change now than after I did them all !!!!

I'm with your mom. It is too commercial. I can't believe so many people left their homes on Thanksgiving night to shop. Ugh.

Glad you found a colour you liked more before you did all of this week's piecing! I'll look forward to seeing the camel in future parts.

I'm a little younger than 92, but I agree with your mom! I've been ranting about the commercialization of Christmas - it's gone too far. Your step one pieces are looking good.

Worse are the unfortunates who have to work in those stores on that day. How horrible.

Our Bonnie is so generous with her time and her talent! I am already loving this mystery :)
