I decided to try doing Bonnie Hunter's Mystery Quilt one more time. So far, I've never seemed to have gotten past Clue 1 or 2 in other years, or just gathering the fabrics. She suggested using paint chips for the colors IF you wanted to follow her color scheme, which I did. So, searching in my stash, here are the turquoises and aquas that I came across.
Purples and violets!
More purples with a touch of periwinkle it seems.
Lots of limey green which I do like!
These were my grays before I went by the quilt shop to get a color that worked better. I had some really light gray but nothing that I thought would work.
And now I'm trying a solid gray......I don't do solids much so we'll see. Guess I've been quilting so long that I remember the excitement when we got away from solids - lol!
And some black and white prints. Some others in my small group are doing this also so I think it will be fun. I cut some strips for step 1 so am ready to get started!
