Quilt 1 is Judy's "Tell it to the Stars" - a block of the month mystery starting on Jan 1. It needs about 3yards of 2 different fabrics, and 4 yards of background, plus some others (6 fabrics in all). This will be a challenge to pull from stash, but here are a few of my thoughts. I started with the pink, and the multicolour batiks. Found a set of 3 purples to go with - not bad, but I'm not in love with it. I tried subbing the pink with green - eh. So I'm still not sure about either of these groupings, and they both need a light background fabric to go with them.
There may be a shopping trip in my future - especially since the LQS whispered something about a January sale. My last Patchwork Times mystery fabric was bought at the last Jan sale, and it worked out really well, so that may be a plan.
QTMysteryQuilts and it is a New Year's Eve mystery. I think that means that we are going to go through the entire quilt in a single day. Cutting directions are already out, so it's all sewing, all day on the 31st. Only one fabric with large requirements for this one, but still a challenge to find 4 fabrics, given minimal direction.
I started with the green this time, and added a dark and light green to go with it. Then I needed an accent colour. I tried this blue/purple multicolour, but it didn't really sit right for me. Thought it might be a bit better with this orange/red print but maybe not.
I finally washed an ironed the fabric for Bonnie Hunter's Celtic Solstice mystery. Clue 1 is out - and clue 2 comes on Friday. So I should get moving on this one, but I have other projects to finish first. I may start out a bit behind on this mystery, but I should be able to catch up after the 15th.
