I like the green choice but I am not a "brown" person and have little in my stash. I like your persistence and choices of colors that allowed you to work from stash and to be creative. Like others have said, changing the color palette can certainly change how the pattern shines.

I did do a Bonnie Hunter mystery a few years ago and was disappointed with the colour placement - haven't done another since.

Did you do a block a week or a section each month? I think it's great that your guild offered a fun activity during these crazy times! Awesome results!!
Each 'round' was sent at two week intervals. I agree with the fabric choice struggle. If I had seen the final picture I"m sure the blue/tan one would have been different.

Those are both pretty quilts in each color. All those SIAS and FG made with perfect points and then you made one more. You are brave! Congrats on beautiful finishes.

I like them both! The brown edge makes the blues and white pop! While the greens are so earthy and the earth tones and fabrics make this quilt feel so warm so quickly that I want to jump right under it. Thanks for sharing these 2 lovely quilts.

I like them both! But you’re right..... the monochromatic coloring is really interesting!
