I am a sucker for joining a good mystery quilt!! last year was so much fun!- though I wasn't 100% happy with the end result, as I changed the colors around, and I haven't even quilted it yet!
anyways here's the link for Bonnie Hunter's Mystery quilt-along
Even though I have the women of the bible quilt -along too, plus a few deadlines for magazine quilts, I just can't help but wanting to join.
BUT I can't decide what colors to use
Bonnie listed Aqua 3 1/4yd
Lime Green 3yds
Grey (the only constant) 2 yds
black on white print 4 yds
All these in scraps of course!! (except the grey)
So this is my pile, but I don't have a solid grey and this paisley is too close to the black on white- which I don't have enough of anyways
SO, what if I used a solid grey instead of the grey and then moved the paisley in the black on white pile?
our friend Gwen gave me this cool red and blue fabric from Singapore, I've kept it for something "special" but I figured that if I keep thinking like that, the special thing may come and go several times, I have 4 meters of this ( close to 4yds) but it also has this neat border design going down one side, so.....
#2 would be
floral = aqua 3 1/4yd
white= green 3yds
red= purple 2yds
pale yellow = grey 2yds
blue(light and dark solid) = white 4yds
(it's a lot of solids though, which might be NEAT, I don't know)
Or a blue and green version but I'm splitting up the fabric "bundles" I got from Tonya, but then again I can't just keep saving them for whatever fictional project I have. hmm
turquoise pile = aqua 3 1/4yd
Blue florals = green 3yds
pale yellow = purple 2yds
white = grey 2yds
Green and green dots= white
Now again from Tonya I got a deal on this small dotted fabric - 4yds of it so that could be my "white"
light blues= aqua 3 1/4yd
White= green 3yds
yellow = purple 2yds
orange= grey 2yds
DOTS = white 4yds
(again a lot of solids though)
Or what about a winter version- I do have another birdie winter fabric on the shelf.
reds= aqua 3 1/4yd
white = green 3yds
blue= purple 2yds
black = grey
winter fabrics = white 4yds
now I also got these boyish novelty fabrics from Tonya- I do have a plan to make two quilts for some twin baby boys, so maybe pooh and then trains would work? but then again they are SO different.
yellows = aqua 3 1/4yds
green = green 3yds
white= purple 2yds
blue = grey 2yds
pooh and trains = white 4yds
What IF I just used the trains (or rather transportation) fabric and not the pooh one.
And maybe I can split the quilt in two for the twins.
Reds = aqua 3 1/4yds
yellows = green 3yds
blue = purple 2yds
trains= grey 2yds
greens= white 4yds
So what do you think?? I just can't decide...
