Orca Bay Clue One in Progress!

I have chosen my fabric colors (going out on a limb here) and have started on Orca Bay clue one!

I hate to not follow Bonnie's colors but I just did Carolina Crossroads not too long ago in red, white and blue so I didn't want to add black and do those colors again. I hope I will not be kicking myself later.

So I went with the colors of Long Lake in Wisconsin (where my grandparents built a cottage and I spent alot of summers) if you aren't looking towards the lake, lol. White/cream and pale yellow for lights, brown with some black thrown in for Bonnie's black, and green and yellow in place of her red and blue. I haven't decided which for which but will make that decision when I get to the first clue involving those colors.

Here are the first of my clue one units...I have 36 made so far and I have to stop to head out to a Deaf event with DJ. Can you believe she and I have been togther for a year already? I can hardly believe it. I work tomorrow morning but I want to keep working on this clue and get some Christmas gift progress in as well! GO PACK GO!

Oh, I love your colors. The soft yellows look so nice with the greens.
Congratulations on your first year together. First anniversary is paper, right?

Nice colours for the mystery. I see you've got lots of Bonnie patterened quilts in your header too - you're obviously a big fan :)

It's going to be so gorgeous. I love all your colors. Your header is a delight too, especially to us Bonnie fans.
