I received this post card in the mail from Rhonda @
I love how the background fabric really looks like water. Thanks Rhonda.

I have been sewing on the Old Tobacco Road mystery quilt and have all the pieces cut out, sewn together and on the bed all lined up...but wait a moment; it does not look at all like Bonnies layout. What did I do wrong.

After agonizing hours of frustration and confusion, I had to admit finally that my brain would not accept (for whatever reason) the layout she has on her site. My layout is now totally different. I am very disappointed with myself, but I am also happy with the layout my brain has accomplished. No picture yet, I still have numerous amounts of sewing to do before it is completed. I will post a picture when it is completed. I hope you all have a great day!


  1. Hey there Brenda, Looking forward to see your quilt, send lots of p ictures please. I am leaving for a while to go to my son's and I will not be on line so will catch up when I return. Blessings, Marie

  2. Hi Brenda! This is going to be the best "mistake" ever--you just wait. Some of my best projects are, what are they called--happy accidents? I can't wait to see it! I sure enjoy reading your blog. Thanks for commenting on my blog and saying I'm a good shot, I sure enjoyed the day out with my son.

  3. hMany people don't follow the same layout as Bonnie on her mysteries. Many did variations of her last mystery, Orange Crush. I didn't do mine like hers and I love it! A different layout makes it yours.....all yours! If you like it, go with it. Can't wait to see it.
