I knew when I chose these fabrics that I didn't love them together, but went ahead anyway. Now I'm not sure if I like this quilt or hate it. Thanks to Smith-Appleby House Museum for the setting.






This pattern is a mystery quilt from Bonnie Hunter.  Fun but LOTS of pieces and cutting.

  2. What a great setting! I will have to remember this! And the quilt colors? They do look lovely together. Nice job on this quilt - but soooo many pieces! Quite an accomplishment.

  5. I like those colours just fine, the quilt has turned out great, you've got nice contrast for the pattern design. Love the photos, the last one is my favourite too, love how the grey and black at the bottom blends up into the wood colour, did it get burnt at some time?

  6. It's a lovely quilt, Jodi. Which BH mystery quilt is it? You chose a beautiful location to take pictures. The quilt and the setting are great!

  8. This is a very striking quilt and you did a beautiful job. Blues and orange/reds are always complimentary to each other. Great setting for your pictures too!

  9. Beautiful colors, and such intricate blocks. The orange really pops and shows off the piecing.

  10. I can understand why you're feeling ambivilent about this quilt. Those are strong colors. But the quilt is just beautiful. I think you got great contrast to really show off the fabulous piecing you did. Those BH mysteries are challenging! A stunning quilt! And I love your setting for your photo shoot too!

  11. This is such a beautiful quilt. I would love to hang this up in Autumn with my blue pottery pieces. Sometimes a quilt takes a while to grow on me and then one day it surprises me and looks perfect in a particular spot that I hadn't thought of. You really did a beautiful job.

  12. I love the rustic setting with the weathered wood for a backdrop. It enhances the beauty of the quilt. It says warm, cozy, Autumn. My favorite season. Lovely color combination.

  13. What's not to love! Were these colours that you don't normally use, so you were out of your comfort zone? It's come together so well, that it looks like a very planned quilt, not a mystery quilt!!
