Orca Bay Mystery Quilt - my fabric selections.

 Orca Bay Mystery Quilt (Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville)   These are my Civil War fabric choices.

Blues


 Neutrals
 Black (some of these look navy on the computer but are really quite black)
Reds


I am going with the same colours as Bonnies.  I have been collecting these Civil War fabrics for about five years now, so I am very happy to be using them for something lovely and scrappy.   Can't wait to see the finished quilt.

The first block is hourglass units - 2.5inch square  Blacks and Neutrals - nice!   You can see more here on Bonnie's site.  Orca Bay Mystery Quilt.

Enjoy.

Definately not a race ... I also need one of the rulers ... so I am only going to be getting things in order for the first few weeks. Plus other deadlines I have. Thanks for the lovely comments on the fabrics - I don't think you can go wrong with Civil War!
