Blueberry Crush Fabrics (Not Orange Crush)!

I will be VERY happy if this works! Above are the fabrics I've chosen to use in making Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt 2. I made her first Mystery Quilt, Carolina Crossroads and so enjoyed it I actually made two of them. Bonnie has named her quilt Orange Crush, but I have decided to use blue as my feature fabric, with the brown and pink as secondary fabrics and the cheddar as my accent. All fabrics will be antique reproductions and I have had so much fun re-discovering fabrics in my stash for the scrappy 4-Patches. It will be quite a bright quilt - just shows what beautiful colours were used in the 1800's. Aren't we so lucky we have wonderful people who have done the researching for us?

I made 70 x 4-patches today - had hoped to complete the 150 - never mind, I will try to get back to the machine again tomorrow. As I'm sure it is for most of us, I've had very busy days. Dearly love my family, but they do seem to get in the way at times.

I must mention what a great help Julia of Camille's Place has been to me - bosom-buddie's we are!

Best wishes!
