Pfeffernüsse is Pfinished!

I've made several Bonnie Hunter quilts this year: Allietare, Jamestown Landing, Carolina Chain (haven't shown that one yet; it's a secret!), Old Tobacco Road, and I've just finished Pfeffernüsse. Can you tell I'm clearing the decks for this year's mystery En Provence?

My first post about Pfeffernüsse is HERE.

This was a fun quilt to make--I love string blocks; I love pinwheels; I love multi-pattern neutrals; I love red. (Okay, I don't love making QSTs so much, but they were worth it in this case!)  This pattern can be found in Bonnie Hunter's book, String Fling.

The quilt is nearly 90" x 90"--and backed with flannel, so it was a bit of a bear to quilt on my DSM, but perseverance pays off! 

The photos aren't great--it was a VERY sunny day!

I'm looking forward to this year's mystery quilt to begin the day after Thanksgiving. Will I work on it exclusively? Actually, I've already started HSTs for Twirl Around from Bonnie's new book, Addicted to Scraps. *grin*  Yes, I am a quilt addict (and PROUD of it!).

I'm linking with Jo's Country Junction UFO Progress and Fiber Tuesday 87 at The Quilting Room with Mel.



  1. It looks wonderful!! I love the colours!! What a great finish!

  2. I love your Pfeffernüsse is wonderful - I have all the pieces ready to go together, But it will have to wait after EN provence- I love making Bonnie quilts too

  3. Your quilt is beautiful! You have been on a Bonnie kick :) I am trying to get Cathedral Stars to the flimsy stage before the mystery starts.

    1. I have been! :) Looking forward to the mystery. Thanks for visiting.

  4. Nice quilt. I've made 2 of Bonnie's quilt (finished, started another one, but, it languishes in the basement). I've not done one of her mysteries yet, since I don't always like her color choices.

    1. Last year's was perfect for me--I loved the colors. This year's is a bit more difficult, but I'm game to try it.

      Thanks so much for visiting my blog!

  5. Wonderful. Just the inspiration I needed!!

    1. Thank you, Jo. Your UFO challenge kept me moving--thanks for that. And, a big thanks for visiting my blog!
