Carolina Christmas taking shape

This is step #5 from Bonnie Hunter's mystery, Carolina Christmas.

The top photo is the block Fox and Geese, and the bottom one is Poinsettia Star. I'd prefer more contrast with the Fox and Geese blocks, but I'll wait and see how Bonnie put them all together. If mine looks too "muddy" because of inadequate contrast, I may consider making two smaller quilts, perhaps adding sashing to create more definition.

I do like the vintage and snuggly feel of the colors, however.



  1. Having peeked at part 6, the layout, I think you will be fine.

  2. I like your color combinations. The bottom ones look like snowflakes. :-) I think it will be pretty. I love all of the plaids! And, I love all of the red!

  3. Looks great, love the reds and plaids, great job!

  4. The poinsettia blocks are particularly lovely in your colour scheme - like snowflakes!!

  5. I love, love, love the colors you have chosen!! Wow, it is just gorgeous. What a lovely quilt it will be for you to enjoy each Christmas.

  6. You did a good piecing job on this!
    I notice you haven't posted in several months. Hope you will get back to doing that.
