Cheesehead, the only one that stands out to me is the brown with all the white. For me, it' reads way too light for the brown (darks) group.

[ATTACH=CONFIG]583492[/ATTACH]Just received the Whittle bundle of 10 FQ of coral. Now it looks like I do not have enough aqua. I separated out the 4 pinkish ones next to the chocolate ones. I'm not sure if I'll use those.

It will be fun to watch everyone's progress on the mystery, this year I think I'll print the clues, but be on the sidelines watching everyone else, I still have last years mystery top to sandwich and quilt up. Life and getting down on the floor to make those quilt sandwiches has taken it's toll on my knees.

Thanks MacyBaby I will remove that fabric, there are more than enough browns so that won't be a problem. Actually that fabric doesn't have a white design on brown it was a turquoise. But it may read white when doing the quilt and I know I would have been disappointed.

Nice fabrics! The only one that stands out to me is the 2nd one down in the coral pile, it is almost too pink. But then I am not a fan of pink, so it is probably personal bias:-)

This is a great selection too! It is so fun seeing all of these:-)

Thanks Theresa, that fabric was in my stash and it's a blend of pinks and corals. I have been adding that fabric to the pile, taking it out and adding it back in again. I've been on the fence about that fabric since the very beginning. I am now planning on leaving it out for good this time.

We are returning to Wisconsin next week and I plan to hit a few more quilt shops, already have my Lowe's color swatches packed!

Hot Diggity Dog-Just found this thread and doing a Happy Dance! My first BH MQ (first ever MQ)was last year and loved doing it So much!! I totally used Bonnies colors and pattern to a T so mine looks like most everybody else but I learned so much doing it and am so excited about this years. I love the colors for this years so will stick with that. Only color I need more of is the coral-melons but lots of time left to get those. I'll post pic when I get all together! Here's my pic of MQ

Hairquilt, Whittles sells FQ bundles of fabrics for this project, if you need them. You can buy just the corals, or just the aquas, or browns... etc. They were showing the actual fabric, but probably have sold out of the first collections and are assembling more.

Your En Provence looks great!
