Glad you all like the reveal, esp. since you have been working so hard on it. It's not an on-point setting, so that's a plus. Now, who is going to be first to show a finished top? The peanut gallery awaits!

eek! the reveal? I've been so busy I haven't been in the quilt room but once this week. The clue 7 looks pretty easy though.
I'm not going to look. I'll wait until my clue is finished and be surprised.
So I won't be back until then

This is a great quilt. Bonnie does such a good job taking the pieces apart to make us wonder what it is going to be at the end. Kudos to all who kept up with this sew along. Can't wait to see all the beautiful quilts.

I was all set to start sewing and realized I'd pressed all my chevrons wrong (no idea why) so I repressed them all so I could nest them the way I like.

It's always such a moment when we see the quilt for the first time! Bonnie is so good at keeping us guessing.

I'm going to have an imbalance problem in my scrappy version with my color switch, with yellow as green and blue as orange. Not sure I like that clue 7 sawtooth unit in the first border; it should be easy enough to leave it out.

That sounds like a good idea, JENNR8R. I will think about doing that, too.

Another admirer here from the peanut gallery - anxious to see everyone's unique version of this beautiful Good Fortune mystery! I really like the reveal and anticipate some quilting eye-candy soon given the wonderful fabrics and color choices many of you have made! It's exciting even though I didn't participate this year

I really like this one! Thanks for posting JennR8R, I like rectangular quilts also. I was considering making two extra rows one for the top and one for the bottom. So that would end up 72 x 96? I like your arrangement also.

An extra row on the top and bottom would give you 72" x 88." Each block is 8."

LOL, math was not my favorite subject. 88 " works too.

Wow .............. love this reveal. Of course, I'm way behind, still working on neutral strings but I have started clue 7. Here's what I have ................. Yes, I know my blues look black but trust me they're blue ... lol ..... All my blues are from my Japanese indigos, kasuri and wagara that I have been hoarding ...... ummm I mean saving for a special project.
