It's time once again for Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt! The colours and amounts are posted over the weekend, so it's time to start shopping. When I saw the colours, my first thought was. "I'm definitely doing my own thing this year" .
But then I hunted through my stash, and started pulling fabrics. Since I don't want to do scrappy, I was looking for options that have enough yardage - 1.5 to 3 yards in most cases. That limited my options, but I pulled out all the possibilities lurking on my shelves.
And after many trials and adjustments and switches of fabrics, this is what I came up with. Look familiar? That's right, essentially Bonnie's colours. I guess she knows best :)
I'm pretty sure this is what I'm going with. I'm not completely happy with the white - it has little dots of colour throughout. So I might do some shopping for a replacement. But I do want white. The beiges I tried made the quilt dull. And I might end up worth a different yellow, if something jumps into my cart when I'm shopping for white .
