Orange Crush With a Twist of Lime

That's what I'm going to call this Bonnie Hunter Mystery quilt.


I finally assembled the center of the top today, after putting it aside for quite a while. I didn't follow the color directions for using scrappy colors for all the nine patches and half nine patches. Instead, I used burgandy and brown scraps. Once I started putting the blocks together, I didn't care much for it and that's why it got buried for a while. It's growing on me now and Dan really likes it, or at least he says that he does.

I think I will do a narrow lime green border, some leftover half nine patches along with some burgandy for the second border and finish it off with the orange.

That's about all the stitching I got done this weekend as Dottie came over on Saturday to get help with a wallet and Janet was here today quilting this signature quilt made by Carole A, which will be given to Judy D on Wednesday.

I love your OC. Such a nice contract of big looking blocks with all those white diamonds. Your colors are great too. Such a bright and cheerful quilt.

I love the Lime Crush! Very nice. I still have to try to figure my border, too.

I love your OC! I wish I would have used lime green - it's one of my favorite colours.

Your Lime Crush is wonderful. I love the green with it, yours is great, and there is another I like with a different green. Definitely, in my opinion, one of the best color combinations.
