Crushing is done

Yesterday was our monthly quilting day so I was able to get my Orange Crush mystery quilt together.I have to say I'm not thrilled with it. I spent a short time thinking about what I could do to make it "work" a little better but then decided to cut my losses and just get it together. I hate to let partly made projects sit if I'm not happy with them because I spend too long thinking about what do with them and how to make them better. Now that I see Sandy's quilt with a much more subtle accent colour (my blue) I think I should have gone with something a little less bold. Oh well, that's what happens with mystery quilts. The ladies I was with yesterday thought it would make a great picnic quilt - nothing would show because there are so many different scraps in there.

We're off to lunch now for DH's birthday. It's a lovely day after stormy weather yesterday so we will find a nice place in the sun.


  1. Now that my roughly pinned blocks have matured overnight I am going with the straight set, it seems to calm the orange down a little, still lose the stars though.

    Yours is nice and bright and when you and Roy work your magic with the quilting bet it will be an absolute stunner!!!
    We have a long weekend here - just to help you celebrate ;)


  2. I don't know why you are being so hard on yourself. Your quilt is really nice. Orange and blue go together very well.
