    2 purples and 2 greens blend in a bit, I would add some orange/pumpkin - just my thoughts

    Hi Anael, I've been looking at your line up...I think what we need to look at are fabrics 4, 5 and 8.

    In the Border Creek line up ( http://www.bordercreekstation.com/mysteryquilt.html ) these 3 are looking very similar, with just a bit of difference. In that muted green look. If you look at mine they are all browns. Mine are small patterned in browns with 8 being darker. If you look at Krista's they are very similar as well. Her three have a bit of a colour variation but the patterning is similar.

    Your three go together but are not similar. #4 is a brown with a large busy pattern in purples. Your #5 is brown with a less busy patterning and not much colour variation, and then your #8 is dark purple. They go together on their own and would make a great quilt but I think what is making you rethink is that the 3 are too different.

    Does that make sense?

    The hints say that 4 and 5 can be the same fabric if you like, which cuts down the stress of choosing...and 8 is just a bit stronger. These 3 fabrics make the quilt the colour it will be...so if you are looking at a purple quilt...you can leave 8 and change out 4 and 5 to something similar, with a bit of a print, just a bit lighter.

    Does that help (I have lost my question marks for some reason when typing this)

    I'm sorry I didn't answer, somehow I didn't get e-mail notice there was posted here.
    Yes it makes sense. It would be so nice to pick fabric with a quilting friend but I guess the trip is a bit too expensive just to do that I now understand what makes the main colour of the quilt!
    I will go through my stash again tomorrow and see what I can come up with. I might have to do some shopping as I mostly have 1 yard pieces and that's not enough.

    Not free (at least not at my shop), but if you don't want the fabric kit, the cost was only $25 for the whole series.

    No, it's a mystery quilt from Border Creek Station, there is a $25 charge and you can purchase a kit of the fabrics they used for their quilt or you can pick your own fabrics based on their instructions on how to pick your fabrics. If you go to their website, I put the link in my first post, you can find a list of quilt shops that are hosting the mystery quilt.

    Your choice - lap or queen. She's giving instructions for both.

    I am envious, your Quilt Shops seem to have a lot going on and often, would love to do a Mystery. I'm in Oz and your shops are sooo far away from me. I'm rural and not that close to a quilt shop ,any mystery they have you have to do
    in a shop class and they are not cheap.

    To those that have shown their material I love them all. Happy sewing cann't wait to see them finished.
