Thanks Agnes, I think you're right about the gray sashing. Problem is I don't have enough aqua left and I don't want to buy fabric. Especially for a quilt I'm not crazy about. I'll finish the blocks and decide what I'm going to do with construction. Perhaps no sashing, split into two small quilts and use fleece as the backing without batting. Simple finish and donate to charity.

Judy--When I first donated quilts to Children's Hospital the coordinator told me there was a child for every quilt when I asked her if they had any preferences. Someone will be happy to receive the quilts.

I'm not sure if I will add more blocks or what borders I will finish it in but here is the layout that was calling to me.   I had not made the brown flying geese so used that cream and brown fabric as sashing....  I have a boatload of units still made... I think i could double this size if I wanted to but like the idea of it being a lap quilt...  

One more seam and these will be one panel. 

I did not make her block,  I actually made two other blocks and used the aqua as the large triange and not the coral on the unit that I can't think of the name hahahaha.

Oh gg...I love it!!  What I'm liking best is that the aqua shows through better with your design.

I just might copy you...    I haven't made the brown/cream FG yet.

GG, that is gorgeous!  I actually love your layout.  I am really loving the size of this quilt.  And the cream and brown sashing is smashing (ha ha, I rhymed) I love seeing what you all are doing.

I'm baaaack!! 

Today I did some major fabric prepping and cutting of aqua, browns and corals to create the units from Clue 4 & 6 combined....a shadow 4 patch with a piece of coral, then subcutting into the Clue 6 units.  Before cutting, I made a sample and was pleased with this "shortcut".  So now that all the pieces are cut out, I'll be sewing, sewing and more sewing.

I have a Bloc Loc Strip Ruler and it's working wonders on my aqua/brown strip sets....love it!!

I'm still loving the colorways of aqua, creams, browns and corals but I am not liking sewing up all the small units to create the block...but I'll move forwrd.

I'm determined to get this MQ finished by summer of 2018, and not the summer of 2019, lol.

Love seeing photos of everyone progress. I have worked on this bit by bit but I haven't had any time for the past week.

I had enough of each step made to put some blocks together. I don't know if I pressed something wrong but my pieces seemed to match up better if I reversed the corner units so my blocks will look different.  I'm thinking of using those sashing units for a border too, a picket fence kind of thing maybe.

And will I put my blocks on point, or not  sashing or not  I think for now I will just keep making units and blocks and see where it takes me.

Everyone's renditions of Bonnie's mystery are beautiful! I have 50 9 patches complete - I have made no progress on this front, but I have a clean and rearranged sewing area! Now if I could just get back in the sewing room - hopefully this week.

GG--I like waht you have done. Your design is far more pleasing to me than the original design.

True to me, I fell off the wagon again. There will not be On Ringo Lake. I am working on Flying Geese Over Red Lake. I will be using the few nine patches I have made possibly as border cornerstones or in the backing. I am thoroughly enjoying making the FG units upsized to 4.5 rather than 3" units. I have totally deviated from the original colors as well.

Awesome, GG.  I love the way you put it all together...the narrow turquoise order is perfect and I really like the outer border.

What a sweet looking quilt gg!  What size is your quilt top?

I continue to do the shaded 4-patch with coral rectangle piece, combining Clues 4 & 6.  I've got 100 units trimmed/made and will continue working on these puppies for a few more days.

Judy -- I love your blocks, and I'm not a fan of scrappy.  I saw a version on another board that I really liked using very narrow brown sashing -- it cut down on the intense orangyness but didn't take away from the blocks. 

The sashing finishes out at 1/2", so barely there.  I'm also really partial to GG's layout with triple sashing and the nine blocks for corner stones.

GG, I think Brigit-Carol is saying she saw that on another site. I really like that and may try to duplicate it.

Are you going to post your pretty finish in the "Completed in 2018" discussion? We're hoping to get 365 finishes this year.

got it, missed that part!!   I do like it !!   The sashing makes it a bit earhier and less 'hot' ( to me ).

Nancy, I am expecting 2 finishes in January and will post them for sure!!!  I'm going to be a sewing MACHINE in 2018.

GG -- I am having a hard time deciding between your setting with the triple sashing and the one I just posted.  Although if I use yours I'd go with the parallelogram border as I refuse to make any more FGs.  I would also use both the brown and green (aqua) FGs as I already have them mated.  I guess at this point I just need to get off the computer and back to the sewing machine!

Sorry I have no where to hang this up so you can actually see it in its entirety, but here is my rendition of "On Ringo Lake".  I gave up after 36 blocks when I ran out of the aqua and brown fabrics for the 2nd time.  I used up my leftover flying geese and some of the 9 patches in the sashing and borders.  Didn't have enough dark brown the sash around the outside, but it is what it is and at least it is a finished top.  I think I'm going to attempt to get the Mystery Flash and this one quilted before I start my class on "Glacier Star" by Judy Neumeyer the end of this month.
