Christmas Lights mystery quilt

Is anyone going to do the Bonnie Hunter Christmas mystery quilt called Christmas Lights that just started in Quiltmaker (July/Aug.2009)? The only thing that's throwing me off is all the black fabric. It's supposed to be a Christmas design but it sounds too dark.

I know I shouldn't doubt so much because all her mystery quilts have been lovely, especially the one from this past January which is going to be my mom's birthday present. It's only that she uses such small patches in her quilts - they're a lot of work. I'd like to be sure it's in agreement with my taste before I spend that much time on it. I guess I should trust.

That is exactly why I don't do mysteries. (I have on occasion pretended to do a mystery once I saw the unveiling...)

I don't do mystery quilts. I guess I like to be more 'in control' than a mystery quilt will let me be.

Heavens, no! I tried that last one and those pieces were just way too small for me. I like using scraps. I just use bigger hunks than Bonnie does.
