    second guessing my choices....going to have another look thru stash....one box (bottom) cannot really remember what is in it.....for all newbies it is better not to have boxes that are so big they get heavy when full....because when you get older it gets difficult to access stash

    I'm going to look through my fabrics and see what I can come up with. This will be a first for me, but will hopefully get me motivated! Thanks for taking the time to do this.

    The third from the left (C) is a very light lavender print, and D is dark green....not sure if the colors are showing correctly. F is black with purple/lavender.

    The selvage on the dark green just says "A VIP print".

    I'm wondering if perhaps there is too much contrast with the dark green and your pastel colors. Other than than, I like your fabrics and they look pretty together.

    I love the black and white monocromatic also with that punch........ I already cut my fabric and I figure if it is a mystery quilt then it's a mystery and whatever it is it is. I guess the fun for me is not figuring out where the colors should go, but what the heck it's gonna look like when it's done. lol If i don't like the way it came out the 1st time, I'll make it again.

    I thought the dark green would bring a little balance between the darker focus and all the pastels, is the green in the focus about the same shade of green? If not maybe have a green that is about the same as the green in F.

    Leslie Frost here is a suggestion for your quilt colors if you do want to try to add more variety in colors of your projects write up some slips of paper with fabric in your stash, or if you only have b, w & r, maybe take the colors in a box of crayon, and in a separate container which ever letters A-F that you want to change or add instead of; Then draw a letter and draw a color and write the combo down. If you have it in your stash pick it & if not go pick a new fabric at the store from the colors on your new list. Totally random breaking into new territory...

    Yes, the green in the focus (F) fabric is dark green, like fabric D.

    Must all our 6 fabrics be 42" wide, or may we use fat quarters?

    I've never done a mystery quilt and this is a small commitment so I'm excited to jump in. I'm fairly new so I don't have a stash and was waiting to go shopping. LOL. Really, I only have two pieces that are still a full quarter yard. But Judy, since you orginally said it could be scrappy, and just above you said we could use fat quarters, maybe I can use what I've got. I've still got a week to decide. I think shopping would be more fun.

    Well, since you said "novice" and I picked up these pretty pretty fabrics that I have no idea what to do with, I'm going to join! Here are some sunny fabrics I think I'll use. I grabbed 7, not 6, so I will eliminate either the pale yellow (currently at "C") or the pale green print (currently at "E"). The bold solid yellow is my dominant color.

    So excited!

    white pine B,C,D,E are all 2 1/2 by WOF so you could probably choose these at your LQS. they are usually rolled up and in a basket by the registar......this would save you piecing fat quarters......another option would be skinny quarters. My LQS even has 6 inch by WOF great for when you just need a bit of something or a lot of variety

    Never pass up a chance to go shopping!

    But yes, you will be able to use scrappy. If you are undecided, you can wait until the next set of instructions are posted on 3/5. At that point you may be able to more easily see where this is going and can then pick your fabrics.

    I think six of these fabrics would go well with your mystery. Very pretty colors.
