And more CC mystery...

This stack is part of the Carolina Christmas mystery by Bonnie Hunter. I am going to finish these blocks...then wait for the border, still to come in the mystery. I have an idea I am not going to set mine together just like Bonnie...just to be different, I want to see what the border looks like, then I am going to play and see what I come up with. That way, if people all set their blocks together in different ways, there will be lots of variety and originality!!!

Hope every one is great...I worked on Christmas stuff a good deal today and have been quite busy. I work the weekend, so will be busy there too.

Have a super weekend!!

The red really pops against the lighter colors.

Do you have to work on Christmas day?

Love your blocks! I'm not so advanced yet...., but I think it's going to be a great quilt!
Looking forward to your setting!

Those are great blocks! I always love the scrappiness of Bonnie's designs. Fun, fun, fun!

I always love your *twists!* The red is gorgeous paired with the goldens and creams. Mmmm...like a holiday in fiber!

Have a great weekend, Julie! Hugs!

PS...may I have permission to open my gifty package before December 25?!?! ;-) I'm a curious cat!

Blocks are beautiful...I've debated a different layout but will most likely follow Bonnie's. Can't wait to see what you come up with!

I love your blocks...they look so pretty! I am wishing I went with the original colour scheme these days! My blocks look so busy and since life is so busy, I'm just not loving it!

Haven't visited for awhile. I'm about where you are on the mystery and going to set it different. Put a picture in my blog today but they are not sewn together. Still deciding.
