Design Wall Monday July 23rd

I am late in reporting and late in completing my sewing assignment.  I am working on my second mystery quilt with the  This is my second mystery.  The first top is off to the quilter tomorrow.

I am playing catch up with the clues and now I am ready for the next clue on Friday.  I hope the next clue uses blue and maybe no triangles this time.

These quilts will be donated too QOV and Hospice of the Valley.

I am enjoying both the process and the results.  I wanted this quilt to be scrappy but not knowing what the final product will look like-I'm afraid I played it too safe.  I am using the same background fabric in all the blocks but scrappy reds and blues.  I used 7 different red fabrics but I think they are so similar that it will not look scrappy at all.  I will use more variety in the blue fabrics I choose.

I love the bonus HST's that I have from the flying geese blocks.  I may use them in this quilt or then again????

    The likeness of your reds with have them blend very nicely together. Patiently waiting #4 too....
