I changed Bonnie's aqua to green, but I stuck with her other suggested colors.

Nearly everything came from my scraps/stash--even the backing fabric. I thought backing was a good use for the fabric since the print is so large. I ended up with about 8" of the piece left over (whew! that was close!).
The hardest part of this project for me was the assembly--on-point with sashing. The sashing had to be turned a particular way, and thinking on the diagonal is never something that comes easily for me. I was very careful--checking and re-checking directions--but I'm sure that something in there is turned the wrong way. Just call it a design variation. 😃
This quilt is HEAVY! I'm talking about weight, not necessarily thickness or warmth--all those seams add up to more weight than you would expect.
I simply meandered the quilting--some of the fabrics caused a bit of thread shredding, so I was very glad to finally finish quilting it.
I enjoyed this project. It is the third Bonnie Hunter quilt I have done during her annual mystery (I did Old Tobacco Road long after the actual mystery time). I look forward to see what she cooks up for next year!
Previous blog posts about the mystery can be found here: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, and Part 5. After Part 5, there were several rapid-fire clues and the reveal, but I didn't blog about those--I had to catch up!
