I really like you combination, and I think having a single neutral adds to the mix.

Teen - your print fabic is gorgeous! Those colours couldn't be better for the colourway you are using.
Sewbizgirl -- I'm doing half the units. On one quilt (can't remember which) I only did a third and still ended up with a nice sized throw quilt. Like SuzSLO said, you'll probably need to make more units at the end for the border as Bonnie loves pieced borders.

Lisa, thanks so much for this! I am not using Bonnie's colors but want to join in. I'm going to make mine smaller this time.

Resistance is futile, LOL.

I'm glad you're joining in, SusieQOH. Maybe you will like your quilt this time!

But I have been able to use this clue for leaders/enders for the baby quilts so that I can see what they look like.

Love everyone’s fabric choices and progress so far. Can’t wait to see what the rest of the clues look like - even if I can only do a handful at a time.
I really like these colors!!

I’ve gone about as far as I am going to go today with Clue #1: all the 4-patches completed and more than half of the nine-patches, with the “triples” needed to make the rest all cut and pressed. Looking forward to tomorrow’s clue.

Hope everyone had fun this first week, even if you were just following along on this thread.
