Setting Decisions

I think I am finally ready for the new mystery, Celtic Solstice, to begin.  I now have all my colored shirts (and a couple pair of pants) and a handful of neutral shirts deboned and ready to work with.  With two more Wednesdays before the 29th I will stop back at Goodwill to see if I can add to the variety, but I think I have enough.

Please pardon the bad photography.  I dropped and broke my camera (I got the phone call yesterday that it will cost more to repair than it's worth) so I have to wait until Christmas for a new one from my hubby.... unless he, hopefully, feels sorry for me and brings one home sooner!  In the meantime, I am trying to take pictures with my kindle.  The pictures are a bit off centered, blurry, and the color isn't quite right, but this will give you a rough idea of what I'm doing.

While I wait for the mystery to begin, I have been working... on and off... to finish up my version of Orca Bay.  Today, I got anxious and decided to lay out all the pieces to see what I have.

But as I sat looking it, I thought, what happens if I surround the purple blocks instead of the yellow blocks with the blue?  WOW!  A totally different look and a decision to make, which way do I go?


  1. Surround the purple definitely! Awesome quilt!

  2. I like the sconndary pattern you get with the one on the right. That being said, you can't make a bad choice here cause either way it is a beauty.

  3. Your orca bay is lovely, and I think the shirts as Solstice will be a wonderful "low volume' opus :)
    Can't wait for the 29th.

  4. I really like the shirts you will be using for Celtic Solstice! I'm amazed that you were able to get so many yellow and orange shirts.

  5. Your colors are beautiful! My favorite layout is the blue surrounding the purple. Either way will be pretty! Enjoyed reading about your Thanksgiving. Thank you for being you! People like you make the world a wonderful place to be.....

  6. My favorite is the blue surrounding the purple. Wow! Either way will be very pretty....Enjoyed reading about your Thanksgiving! Thank you for helping to make this world a better place.
