    I would like to join if it isn't too late. I haven't participated in a mystery quilt before, but I'm excited about trying.

    I think I'd do instead of c&d use either e or alt 1, whichever blends better with b and alt 2. Then use c & d for e & f fabrics. take a look at that combo and see how it looks. Just an opinion, sure it will look great no matter what you come up with.

    Thanks for the information. I read through all the posts this morning and caught the clues so I'm all set. I have to pick some fabric tonight and I'll try to get caught up. The snow helps me want to stay inside.

    Welcome aboard! We are only on the first cutting, so I doubt Judy will mind

    The more the merrier on this ride! You can always catch up as we go, and there are lots of us who'll help you. Rain in WA state? Tell me it ain't so! (The rain I don't miss, but the fresh food...yes!) Ms. Mini and I went out today and the wind gusts were so strong that my hat blew away!! It was a bodacious ride. :-) ( I rescued the hat.) Went to Tuesday Morning to check out the fabric. They did have some, but I resisted. Thanks for the compliments on the purples.

    Hi everyone!! Had my 1st epic failure on this adventure.... went to start cutting my fabrics when I realized I only had 1yrd cuts ..... you know what that meant - a trip to a my favorite LQS! Oh and what fun did I have... I was hoping to use all stash but just wasn't meant to be on this ride.... Just got back a few minutes ago so I am recharging with some ice cream and then I'll post my new fabric choices ..

    Yes that purple was gorgeous, but then I'm really partial to purples. Is that a sign of age? lol
    I love WA state, rain and all. Hehe.

    Are you getting winds from Hurricane Sandy? She looks pretty ferocious as she heads to New York. What did they call it? Frankenstorm, because they figure it'll hit on Halloween.

    I just ran across this thread this morning and I love mystery quilts -- I'm in! Here are my fabrics, except for "D". I haven't found anything yet that I like to match up with "C".

    Here are the new choices with the suggestions given above.

    Original array:
    Name:  Mystery quilt.jpg

    Suggestion #1 (not sure there is enough contrast between C & D)
    Name:  mystery quilt 2.jpg
Views: 403
Size:  415.1 KB

    Suggestion #2 (Do you think E & F have enought contrast with the others to "draw the eye in" as the original instructions stated?)
    Name:  mystery quilt 2.jpg
Views: 389
Size:  470.4 KB

    I've never done this kind of thing before, so am open to suggestions. But if E & F are supposed to contrast with each other and the rest of the fabrics, I'm not sure this does it. Then again, what do I know?

    Judy mentioned that one of the E-F fabrics goes with A-B, and the other E-F fabric goes with C-D. That helped me a lot, hopes it helps someone else who missed it!

    I finished my apricot white chocolate chip biscotti willing to share! the anise seed ones are in the ovenand need another hour to finish and cool so save a bit of coffee for those also.

    I love the fabrics and for the mystery what do you think D should be I think a small print with that aqua/teal in it would be perfect.

    Please give our best wishes for a speedy recovery, a safe return home and we will be waiting to get her back. To those of you in the wake of that big storm tie your HATS DOWN. (hey out of curiosity anyone wear purple hats? with red feathers?)

    I think the teal print would work best, too, but haven't spotted one yet. I did order a light ginger/gold small dot that blends with the tiny flowers in "C", so we'll see. There are dots in the background of "B", so it might work.

    Since I live in the usual hurricane path in Louisiana, I feel your pain in the northeast! Stock up on batteries and snacks and batten down the hatches!

    Reeskyler, my second graders delighted in purple. Purple clothes, purple backpacks, purple shoes, purple art. Everything purple OR pink. So I think purple is for the young, but we'll play nice and share it with those who are older!

    The winds are from Frankenstorm, and they seem to be about what we normally have with this kind of storm. We'll be fine, it looks like places further North will get the brunt of it.

    Judy's in the hospital? Oh, let her know we miss her, but Poker Diva, you'll do just great! So glad you are able to help. See everyone tomorrow!
