Part 2 was all about warm string blocks, so I’ve chosen to sew Part 4’s string blocks in cool blues.  No planning here; I’m mixing it up.  Confederate blue, teal, light blues, dark blues, some purple thrown there, floral prints, corn, Asian prints, hand-dyes, dots, whatever I have on hand. 

Will it all work together?  The controller in me says that the teal strip does not go well with blue-gray plaid strip.  I’m turning up the music so I can’t hear her.  ‘Que sera, sera…whatever will be will be….’

All pressed and lookin’ good.

Trimmed up.  Will they play nice?

It’s a mystery.  But I’m likin’ it!

  6. Yes your blocks play nice! Hope I like my quilt when done, I’m using Bonnies colours was too scared to try anything different as this is my first mystery.

    • I’m positive that you will like your quilt, Leeann! You can’t go wrong following Bonnie. It is precisely because I did not follow Bonnie’s colors, that I’m worried about mine. LOL! Ah well! I want to learn to let go, to not be so controlled, and this is a great time to do it.

  7. I love your colors!!! Beautiful strings 🙂
