On Ringo Lake

Work on the Bonnie Hunter Mystery, On Ringo Lake, continues.  I managed to finish my nine patch blocks before Clue 2 came out, but just barely.

 I am still in the cutting process for my flying geese.

 I have a long way to go, not to mention sewing them into geese.  I do love the colors and I can't wait to see what others in my Friday Bee have done.  

 I am linking up to Bonnie Hunter's Page.  Go and see what people are doing.  Also, it's not too late to join.  Directions are under her tab "On Ringo Lake"

Moving Target

From the Goodreads website:  "In this high-stakes thriller from New York Times bestselling author J.A. Jance, Ali Reynolds spans continents to solve a cold case murder and to figure out who wants a young juvenile offender dead.

Lance Tucker, an incarcerated juvenile offender and talented hacker in his own right, is set on fire one night and severely burned while hanging Christmas decorations in a lockup rec room. B. Simpson, Ali Reynolds's fiancé and the man who helped put Lance in jail, feels obliged to get to the bottom of what happened. With Ali off in England to help Leland Brooks at a reunion with his long-estranged family, B. turns to someone else to help out: Ali's good friend and Taser-carrying nun, Sister Anselm.

Meanwhile, in Bournemouth, Leland's hometown, Ali begins to investigate the decades-old murder of Leland's father, which Leland himself was once suspected of committing. With unsolved murders on both sides of the Atlantic, Ali, B., and Sister Anselm are united by their search for answers and the jeopardy they get into as a result.

From the author praised for her "inimitable, take-no-prisoners style" (Kirkus Reviews), Moving Target sends Ali on a trans-Atlantic adventure and straight into the path of a deadly killer."  
   
Well, here's another series that I have completely missed out on.  And, as usual, I didn't start with the first book.  This was an easy read, the story kept moving,  and I enjoyed it after I got past the "fabulously wealthy detective thing.

On Ringo Lake

It is time for the Bonnie Hunter Mystery.  Several of the ladies from our Friday Bee, including me, committed to doing On Ringo Lake.  Our plan is to use our Friday meetings to work on our quilts.  We recieved the fabric requirements and here are some of my neutrals

and these are some of my aquas.

The first clue is to make  nine patches.   Here is one of my strip sets.

I have sewn and cut some of the aqua and white pieces

The next step is sewing the pieces together.

 

And, this is where I am for the link-up day on Bonnie's website.  Luckily I have until Friday to get my nine patches finished before the next clue comes out.  It's not too late to start, check out Bonnie Hunter's website for directions.

Vortex Wedding Quilt

My son got married a couple of years ago.  Don't judge, I am behind and I know it.  Anyway, that means a quilt. The pattern they picked is Variegated Vortex by Cara Gulati and they wanted it in red and black batiks.  I started gathering the fabrics.

 Oh boy, this is going to be fun.  Lucky for me, I got the templates that go with the pattern.  They are really, really nice.  The plastic is thick so I don't have to worry quite so much about losing a finger while I cut the pieces out.

 

 The start of a plan.

 

Here's one center idea.

 

 or maybe not.  This is one of the best parts of quilting.
