Lazy Sunday steps one and two

Yesterday my Quiltmaker Magazine arrived with the second installment of Bonnie Hunter's Lazy Sunday Mystery!  With the house still cleaned up from Easter company, I have plenty of time to play with quilting.

I've made the colors my own.  Bonnie's bright pinks, oranges, limes and purples just don't fit anywhere in my home!  I took some advice that that suggested finding a picture or something that you love and use it to select colors for your quilt.

I love the wallpaper border in our second bedroom, and used it for my color 'template'.

Light and dark blues, greens, whites, black and a touch of red.  This may cause a problem, because one of the block combinations in Step 2 uses my 'black' and looks like it might end up as star points.  I'm not sure I want black stars in the quilt.  But, it's a mystery and I might just take a leap of faith and go with my color choice.
