Bonnie Hunter’s Orca Bay Mystery dilemma

Have you all seen the new mystery quilt that Bonnie Hunter is running again this year?  I want to participate, but I’m stuck on my colors!   I love brights, but they don’t go with anything in my house; DH sort of over-ruled that idea! Ha!

So, we have all of the earth colors and I’m still trying to figure out what I can pull together that will work in the living room, and will be a quilt he’ll actually use.  All of this indecision, and the third step is already posted!

…not to mention that I need to make a Bronco quilt for a customer before Christmas, and complete 2 other small customer quilts!

So what if your choice of colors "works" with your house. Make the house work with the quilt, or at least one room. Make what you like and the rest will follow. Good Luck

In this particular case, the living room has that minimalist look, so if it's too bright it will stand out too much, & eventually DH will fold it up and tuck it away, which he's known to do!

Most of the other quilts I've made have lots of bright color to them, which is part of why I even considered fall colors for this one. I still haven't come up with a good color combination yet, which means it's probably not meant to be another color!

So, yes, I will probably just make it in Bonnie's colors and it will be beautiful.
