    Everybody's fabrics are so pretty!
    I'm still trying to find ones that fit both my criteria - I like them together and I have enough of them if I decide to go bigger.
    My have to just do a single block and go shopping after I get another payment in.

    Default Revised combo

    Judy, what do you think of this combo now? I realized one of my earlier choices was too short a remnant, so now this is the latest effort. I'm really looking forward to this mystery especially after reading all the positive feedback from your previous mysteries.

    I finally pulled some fabrics, the light is a TOT white and cream paisley. The gray is a solid, when I resized the pic it made it look all wavy. The brights are fat quarters that coordinate with the medium print, I hope to use them for sashing and border. I'm ready for Saturday![ATTACH=CONFIG]565472[/ATTACH]

    Carol these are perfect - plenty of contrast

    dhanke love all those brights you will border the quilt with, and like your fabrics too.

    giggle - ok, if light is the middle fabric, you will be fine. Pretty grays.

    Tomara - either A or C will be fine. With the B, the medium and light are too close, not enough contrast

    Ok, everyone, I am shutting the puter down, going to plop by lazy self on the couch and read until tired. See you all tomorrow. I hear the wheels on the train going Sat ur day Sat ur day Sat ur day, as we move closer and closer to starting to sew.
