    Hmmm, I'm thinking about this... I'll look for some fabrics. I think I'll try to spread out and try some colors that I don't usually use.
    Reading, cooking, sewing in retirement! Heaven!

    This sounds like fun, I need to quit my job so I have more quilting time, oh but then I won't have money to buy more fabric. ....I am going to give it a try, but I may be lagging behind a bit.

    Looks like a fun thing to try! I've not done a mystery quilt before. Going shopping in my stash.

    Here';s my fabrics...do you think they will work? And should I switch B and E, so the maroon is next to the orange instead of the brown? Anyone...would like your thoughts/ideas...

    There is a lot more orange in the flowered fabric then this picture shows.

    The last fabric is supposed to be the focus fabric, as I remember. Go with your instincts on your color choice. Looks good to me as is.

    Pretty colors. Will look nice together, but no, it would not be good to use F the teal also in position A. What you have is very pretty. Your teal will be prominent and very nice.

I want to wait to cut my fabrics until I can get some kind of an answer. Thanks. This is going to be fun. Love the fabrics others have chosen. I want mine for a baby quilt. I love these fabrics & have just been waiting to use them!

    To anyone who is on the fence, as they say, as to which color will go in which position, I will only make this one suggestion. Hold off on cutting the 3-1/2" strips until they are ready to be used. You know that F will be prominent, so cut the five 2-1/2" strips and wait for the next set of instructions. "Nuff said!
