Happy New Year!!
Miss Bonnie didn't let us down...the final layout of the mystery quilt was revealed on New Year's Eve. I didn't see it until the morning of January 1st...but that's okay, we were having too much fun with friends from out of town celebrating the New Year!
After our company left on Saturday...all I wanted to do was sew, sew, sew! I got to work putting the blocks together and by late last night I had this!
The colors are so much prettier in person. The yellow in the picture seems to "pop" more that it does in real life. I'll admit, after seeing some of the colors other quilters have chosen, part of me wishes I would have switched things up a bit too. But, I love stretching myself to use color combinations I would not normally choose. My daughter said it looks very sunny! I agree!
I have three rows sewn together and hopefully I'll get back to it again later today.
Since this likely will be a wallhanging (will finish about 41" wide), I'm thinking about making it square. Hmmm...what do you think? Do you prefer a square or rectangle wallhanging?
