Quilt of Valor Mystery Quilt-A-Long on Craftsy

I have my back and binding ready for Cecilia's quilt and I still need to piece batting, but I saw Alycia Quilts, Quilt of Valor Mystery Quilt-a-Long on Craftsy and decided that I would do it if I could find fabric in my stash.  I had to use blue for her red and red for her blue, and tan instead of white (it looks kind of apricot in the picture, but it is tan), and my blue is more red than blue, so my mystery will be a double mystery of will it be a complete blah or a soothing wonder.   I was happy with my Borgasmord in the end, so I was ready to take the gamble.   
I got a little cocky with my cutting since I saw the tip about the shelf lining and cut my strips with the fabric folded twice instead of once.  Not a good idea to be too careless, as I got some wavies in my strips for the first time in a long long time.   I still love the shelf paper though, it was my error.
For a while it seemed like I needed a break from purple, and now I'm starting to feel that way about red, yes after this one I'll need a definite break from red.
