Mystery Time!

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 .

  1. Looking good! I wasn't going to do the mystery this year, but I think I could pull enough of those colors for a small quilt. No more scrappy for me, though.
