Karla, I like your layout design too!  It turned out very nice.  

What size is your quilt top?

Nice layout, Karla! What are you going to do with all those, umm, I call them parallelegrams, I think some called them chevrons?

Way to go Karla !!!   Your quilt looks GREAT!!   I think you did a wonderful job on the borders too!!!  Out of the box designs are the best. 

Super cool that you'll get it quilted so quickly too!  

Karla rocks!!!

I used 36 blocks and with the sashing and border it is about 76 inches square.

To tell you the truth, Nancy, I never made the parallegrams, so I don't have to worry about using them.  I started late and skipped that step, just wanted to get the blocks together but then ran out of enough fabric to do anything else.

Karla - great finish.  I've decided I really like the triple sashing.  Just don't know if I want to put that much work into it.  But I have a ways to decide since I haven't yet put my blocks together.

Well, I have all the units made for the full size quilt. I've been playing around with designs for the past week, and I've just finally decided I am going to sew it up according to the instructions. It will be busy to look at, but it will be a true Bonnie Hunter quilt.

I just hope someone in my family will want it.

I had decided not to do the BH mystery since I found it too busy for me.  But I must say you ladies have made some beautiful quilts with your own take on it.  I really like GG's, Brigit-Carol's and Karla's.  I can't decide which I like best.  Good job ladies!

I saw the picture of your finished quilt on the Home Page...very nice.

I continue to prep & cut fabric, sew up units, trim units to get to the point where I can start making my blocks.

I'm pretty certain I'm going to deviate from Bonnie's design and make mine like gg's.  Although my 3-1/2" triangle pieces will be coral, brown/aqua and not aqua, brown/aqua like gg made.  Sure wish I would have seen the difference in gg's versa the way Bonnie's colorway had us made these units, because I love anything in blues...so aqua rather than coral would have been the cherry on the top for me. Nice touch gg!! 

The way I figure it, with the 50 blocks, which I'm seeing as a 9" finish size block and by adding the sashing, I can make a nice queen size quilt for my bed.  Yup, this is how I'm most likely going with this BHMQ design.  Sorry Bonnie....but I still love the colors you used!

I should add that I'm not making the chevon unit pieces after all. . . or not.  I give myself the right to change my mind, lol.

OK, GG, how do you make pinwheels from the chevron blocks?  I made half of them, so will probably use them in a border, but I liked your pinwheel blocks as well.

pinwheels -  from chevrons

cut off a 2" square from each end, and they are perfect HST     Take four of those and make pinwheels.  Very little waste..maybe 1/2" or so ?  --   I kept mine scrappy.

hugs, gg

ok Judy, I pluged  this into EQ7.

I have came up with my layout, but  I am torn between binding it with tourquise or coral. 

  

Ladies please help me decide. below are 2 EQ7 images of the quilt; one with tourquise binding, and one with coral binding. The one with the most votes is the what I will do.
