Love the combination of colours!

Ok, I still have some tweaking to do but thanks to the ladies in my Tuesday group I do have a couple more yellows. I'll still need to dye some of my own and I found my remaining bottle of red dye, so just need yellow. I'll be doing a couple of different things, and since I'll have stuff out, I'll also treat some of the green.

I have the paint chips on the color groups, didn't grab a white chip so that's just a piece of paper from the hubby's pocket... I'm changing white/neutral to school bus yellow. My red is definitely brighter. My dark blue is just dark. I'm still working on getting the proper distance from what is just dark-medium-lighter.

It's so funny, I didn't like the paint chips together but I am loving everyone's colors that they pull from their stash. Looks like after this weekend (company coming), I'm going to have to pull from my stash to see if I like it. Glad so many have hopped on board. I love the posts here once the clues get started.

Love all the colors each of you has chosen. I follow Bonnie Hunter by newsletter and faithfully download her clues. My favorite quilt shop for fabric is in Dade, FL,. QuiltedTwins.com has a package put together for her color choice this year, and its less than I can get 13.7 yards anywhere else. Much less than I normally pay to make a quilt top!

Looking forward to following progress of each step here. I collect clues, and have yet to get one together. Fabric and clues are together, so someday before I hit my 80s, I hope to get one or two done. Maybe.

I have heard so much about her mysteries. I may skulk this year. Really working hard at finishing.

I have an extra set of color chips if anyone needs them. Only problem is I couldn't get the "Pure White" chip. Got the one number prior to it (I think it is "Ultra White"). I figured white is white and just took what I could get to see the way the white looks with the other chips.

PM me your address and I'll be glad to send them to you. I only have one extra set, so first one to PM gets them.

Rhonda K,
I am trying to cut everything with my Accuquilt dies. I love the system....just finished up cutting some scraps into 2" and 2 1/2" sqs.
I find the Accuquilt invaluable when doing the mystery with 240 of this and 310 of that...
Let the fun begin!

I may jump on this one. I never heard of BH until I heard about her here. Sounds like fun.

Edit- yes I'm going to do it!!! Just clicked on the link and it looks like fun!!!

SusieQOH, Welcome! These are fun mysteries that Bonnie does. This will be my 6th year of doing them, so far I dont have any of them I havent finished.

ILovetoQuilt, I couldn't find it either and there were no blank spots, I finally asked for help and got the paint guy to show me the white chip. It was in a display beside the one where the other chips were located. All along the bottom were white chips. It was shorter than the rest.
