    Well...I happened to be by Ben Franklin today, so I picked up a few corals. That should help blend the orange and pink in my pile together!

    Same here... I thought the whole chain was defunct. Haven't seen one in probably 25 years. Woolworth's is gone, too. Glad to know there is still a BF somewhere.

    Wow, I just looked at the calander-- Thanksgiving is barely a week away! That time flew by.

    I'm hosting Thanksgiving for the first time this year. Should be pretty easy-- (nervous laugh)

    I am hosting as well, but my brothers have made it easy. We pick up the complete meal from a local grocery store, already cooked:-) The turkey has always been delicious and most of the sides are good too. We started doing this a number of years ago when my mom started having health issues, and now this year it will be in my home to save her all the pre & post cleaning.

    Ohoh, this means I will have to turn my sewing room back into a dining room! Good thing both my dining room table and my cutting table fold small! LOL

    These are the colors I think I will use. I am substituting charcoal grey/black for the browns and purple/lavender for the melon/salmon. I know Bonnie's colors are complementary turquoise/melon and mine are not. Opinions welcome

    Hi Pagzz, glad to see you posting! I like your colors.

    I found myself standing in front of the paint chips at the hardware store today, looking for two colors to sub for the coral and turq.... and I just couldn't decide! I tried out lots of combos and I'm as confused as ever. It seems they need to be opposing colors on the color wheel and not quite as dark in range as the brown. So something like blue and green just won't have the same impact. So what then? Red and green... or red and blue? I just need to pull out my scrap boxes and start playing. Just as soon as I finish my son's birthday quilt!

    I'm in that same boat! Dining room is a full time sewing room all year except mealtime on Christmas, Thanksgiving and Easter. I have so much clutter to hide!

    In our house the living room, dining room, toy room and sewing room are all in one huge area! I try (note try!) to keep it clean but I'm not sure who makes more of a mess, the kids toys or mama's toys.

    My closet has fabric spilling out of it, my sewing and ironing is in my bedroom, my cutting area is my dining room table, and hand quilting in the livingroom. I wonder if I would actually use a sewing room, I think I would.

    Oh Goodness Ladies, but I need help! The more fabric choices I see and the now that I my paint chips, I'm in more of a quandary. These are fabrics that I really like, but....Could the peacock print really fit in? Please be free to steer me in the right direction.

    I would use the peacock fabric as a border. Bonnie's pieces are usually small, that print is large and won't read as the same color when cut small (some teal, some brown some green some peach etc...) I used that fabric in my first OBW quilt.

    Carol in WI, I'd say that the peacock fabric would be nice in the back. If you don't have much of it, then just make a pieced back. If you cut it up for the top, it will be like adding green, so where would you use it? It can't be the turquoise, and it can't be the coral, and it can't be the brown. You could try to use it for the neutral with some other greens, but you might not like that, because as Kassaundra indicates (and I agree with her) you'll lose the design of the peacock when you cut it up. Or, if you don't like the print, and you are thinking about using it in order to cut it up-- then I'd eliminate the turquoise fabrics, and in their place use green fabrics (similar to the greens in the peacock fabric). You really have 4 colors, and you only need 3 (plus the neutrals that Bonnie asks for, which seem to be intended for the background).

    Carol, the peacock fabric is beautiful! I agree that it would probably have to be either a border or backing, unless it turns out that there is a large-ish piece somewhere in the block or sashing design. We had those block centers in Allietare, and the big cornerstones in Grand Illusion.

    All of my mystery fabrics are pressed! Now to see what I can get done on other projects before the first clue comes out.

    I agree with Kass' suggestion to use the peacock fabric as a border. It ties all the colors together so nicely.

    Welcome aboard, Kaye!

    Thank you everyone for weighing in on the peacock print. I do love that fabric and it will still be able to be used on the border. I can hardly wait to start this mystery and see everyone's progress.

    Very glad to see this thread! I've wanted to do one of Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilts for years, but found it rather daunting. Seeing the progress of others will be a big help to me. Love seeing everyone's fabric choices. Here are mine - using purple for brown and lime green for coral. Digging through my scrap bin today to find some more scraps that will work.
