Good Fortune, Part 4

Part 4 – the green turquoise chevrons – are completed. I was able to sew on these during the week, so it was easy to finish them up this morning.

For my quilt I decided to have all four chevron units in each block from the same fabric. Of course, once the decision was made I needed to make a star block to verify. And yes, I am happy with that variation for my quilt.

I still have all the green turquoise/background HSTs for one of the borders to sew, but that can wait until the center is completed. Now the blue turquoise/background HSTs need to be cut and sewn.

My goal is to have the center of Good Fortune together by the end of the month.

Good Fortune, Part 1 – Again

When I first started Bonnie’s mystery quilt Good Fortune, I was going to make 1/4 of the units and change three of the colors. But that plan flew out the window – now I am making all the units and changing four colors.

The first clue for Good Fortune was 4-patches of red & neutral. With the new plan the red was changed to coral/salmon, so I had to begin again.

And I had a bit of good fortune discovering that part 4 units and part 1 units combined to make one of the blocks. As I was sewing the 4-patches I was also assembling blocks.

First there were a few, but by the end of the day all these chain blocks needed for Good Fortune were completed.

Changing the orange to gold produces a bit more contrast between the 4-patches and strip sets which I like. I am looking forward to making the star blocks and see how all my color changes play together.
