Bonnie Hunter's Orange Crush Mystery


I think I've found my fabrics for Bonnie's new mystery, Orange Crush. I've got two blues that I have enough yardage of, but both have patterns. Not sure which or if either will work because the patterns that are not mute but they are like tone on tone blues. Suggestions are welcome. The black isn't a true solid black. It's got a leaf pattern that's kinda gray/brownish with a black background but looks solid enough. The orange is a piece of fabric I 'just had to have' many years ago, before I started quilting, from a trip to the first Super Joann's I went to in CT. with a friend. Neither of us had a clue what were doing. Well, I've still got it, have never used that 'just had to have' fabric so I'm using it here. It's got cactus and suns with tone on tone shades of orange. One of those fabrics you look at and go "What was I thinking!"

You really could use either of the blues, but I prefer the geometric that appears alittle more intense in the photos.

I love your colors and I think both blues work. I really think they will read solid in the quilt and add movement and interest without being distracting.

You could pick one or the other if you have plenty or mix them up.

That green is yummy! Can't wait to see them all finished.

I like both those blues with the green and other colors. One is geometric and one is curvy/flow-y, so you might want to defer the decision until you find out what shapes/sizes the blue fabric will be cut into. That might help make a choice if the other factors are even.
Have fun!

Well, the flowery ,lighter blue reads as more solid, but the geometric is brighter-I think I would wait until you need to use it & look at what is going on then.

I really like your collection of darks - not too dull and dingy.
