Description

Can't wait to start a group sew a long project online. I have only managed to do one mystery quilt and enjoyed the process. I love picking out the fabrics - color is my thing!

I had to orient my color choices towards her selections for the instructions, so I chose:

  • yellow for lime green
  • orange for aqua/turquoise
  • purple for purple
  • blue for grey
  • black/white prints for background
For clue #1 I have started cutting and have the first set of strips sewn, but now comes the fun part of trying to figure out how many more I need to make.

Great fabric choices cannot wait to see them become a quilt!

Kathie

Wow! That's a lot of beautiful fabric! I'm following along as a cheerleader on this one smile .

Is that a color wheel I see peeking out of the edge? Were you doing some color theory while choosing your fabrics? Very cool. I love your color combos and can't wait to see this made up. I really do think I'm going to have to revisit my scrap stash and find more variety. I think the more variety you have, the more interesting it is!

Looks like complimentary colors - will be exciting to see this one come together.

Sandyquiltz After checking your your Tuesday blog entries on color, I decided to dig out my color wheel to pick the fabrics for this mystery quilt. Since I have no bias as to what the final project will look like, the more interesting the color choices, the more interesting the finished object - I hope!

I'm thinking of adding some darker white/black prints, but my selection in house is limited and I was hoping to use up a small bit of my collection on this one. bowtie

Kathie Thanks, I'll probably need some as it gets more involved. It's really just a bit of fun in the cold winter months as I look at it.

Wow this is really pretty - love all those golds!

I'm with Wendy - those golds are so pretty and not a color you see often which makes it special. Lovely quilt

Yours turned out amazing! Wasn't it fun? Thanks for sharing.

Trumkle

twistedandloose Yes - it was really fun to make and I thoroughly enjoyed the outcome. It was not my normal palette - hence the large amount of scraps and fat quarters in my stash to work from. smile

HawkFan Caribousmom Thanks! I think they really make the design pop.
