mystery quilts

Time to hurry and finish the on ringo lake mystery quilt from quiltville. Bonnie has ramped up the last of the clues and today was the reveal. I am toggling between the last clues. I needed to starch the fabric for the coral triangles in clue 6. I have a few more to trim on clue 5 and I have sewn half of the clue 7 together because the pieces were all done earlier.
I am choosing to do the studio 180 technique for the flying geese using the wing clipper template. I used it in clue 2 and I really liked it. I like that it makes 4 at a time.

Jo of Jo's Country Junction has a string fling challenge each Monday. She is planning on making all the quilts from one book called String fling.  When I did the tally from my book. I was surprised how many I have started. But, for my challenge, I want to finish all the mystery quilts from Quiltville. I have them all started and several just need quilting. So for 2018, I plan to finish all 16 mystery quilts.
