    I am! Iti was fun to try to get stash to go together. But posting a picture was something else. Obviously, that didn't work, but will try another day on something else.

    Excellant idea. Your beautiful floral will make a wonderful border. And I too like to make small things for my sewing room! My fish avatar has a place of honor on the wall .

    Your fabric looks marvelous sweet caroline. I think I have figured out how to pick from my stash, but will have to wait till March 5th posting to start cutting because will be using all scraps of leftovers. I think I will just pick a fabric that I have one yard of for F-accent fabric, then build from there. This way I may make a dent in the 55 gallon tub of fabric that has moved into the 20 gallong tub as well of scraps that need homes. I know I have that carressable fabric in the cupboard that will play nice with leftovers.

    First time to try a "mystery" but I will also start looking for fabrics. DH will have to help me with posting picture, because I'm not good with those things.

    Judy, thinking of doing mine in blacks and whites with the "F" fabric deep red. Does that sound like it will work?

    Jenniky, your fabrics are so awesome. I have some of them - we must think alike when it comes to colors. I'm going to use your fabric "E" as my "F". Then use blacks with white, I think.....

    Thanks PokerDiva and Judy for the thumbs up on my color choices. Everose, It will be super awesome to see the fabrics you pick to go with my E which will be your F. I have been calling the fabric the red dragonscales fabric.
    Have an awesome day!

    I shopped the stash & this is what I came up with. I want the teal dragonfly fabric to be the most featured in the quilt, so I have 2 questions for you. Can I use fabric F for A also? I will also use it for the outer border. Or should I leave it as it is in the picture? If I can have A & F the same, then I would omit fabric E from the pile. 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!

    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.

    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.
