I'm probably wrong about the strings -- just speculating!

If she does strings and you have known issues just get a stripe fabric in the color she is doing strings in.

I hope there are no strings too. It's great for people who keep strings in their stash but I always make a tremendous mess cutting them. After going thru my stash, not near enough orange but I do have the red and blue in toscana. So it's off to the LQS today, I think I will try to use toscana in all the colors out of yardage.

Got my color chips at Lowe's. Colors are primary colors and I like them so I will keep to Bonnie's colors. I looked through my stash and lo and behold...I can make this quilt from my stash only. Not that this will happen ever happen (LOL).

I still think I will probably just print out all the clues and then decide if I want to do the mystery. Although, if I only do a 1/2 size (36" x 36") that shouldn't be too overwhelming.

Can't wait to see the first clue and how everyone's blocks work up.

Actually, half size would be 36" x 72"... or some wider, less long configuration. If you want 36"x36", you only need to make 1/4 of the units.

Here is the link again, in case anyone needs it:

haven't looking in the fabric closet yet, I'm enjoying the anticipation!

You wouldn't know it to look at it, but this back is the culmination of trying to do something with Bonnie's rail fence leader ender challenge this year.

Now I'm trying to think what to use for leader enders next.
Wow, Kalama! That is quite a backing!

How about doing Jewel Box Stars as your next L/E-?

Normally she says it's fine to use just 1 color and leaves it at that, but this time she followed up with some rather mysterious comments. As I recall, there was also an issue with 1 fabric per color in En Provence, because of the neutral 4-patches. I can't remember when Bonnie suggested people bring in another neutral in that mystery -- if it was in the intro or when clue #1 came out. I know she likes to avoid giving anything away for as long as possible.

Oh good call Lisa! I did go back and read her comments. Right after saying if using 1 fabric you're fine she does make a rather odd, cryptic comment. I had forgotten about the En Provence 4-patches... those doing scrappy were encouraged to use a two-tone approach to the neutral 4-patches while those using just 1 fabric basically got to skip a step. Well bother! I had planned to just use 1 fabric per but I needed 2 orange fabrics for my neutral to have enough yardage. I guess if it **is** strings I could just alternate - or just use one or the other.... hmmmmm..... maybe I'll wait until the 2nd clue is revealed and decide.

Funny that strings have come up - I was looking over a lot of Bonnie's other patterns and saw some using strings that I really like!

I have not decided on fabric yet, maybe this weekend I'll have time to spend with my stash until something "speaks" to me.

I'm also "watching" to see if strings are included. They can be a bit of a challenge for me, but I'm up to it.

I still need to dig in my stash to see how much of suitable blues and greens I have. Am on the fence about the red and oranges.....

I'm Ready!!

My Quilted Twins Good Fortune package came in the mail today. I am thrilled with the neutrals and the only one I question is one of the blues where there is high contrast in the fabric. Top blue.

What do you think?
