Fabrics for Bonnie Hunter’s 2017 Mystery Quilt “On Ringo Lake”
I wasn’t going to do this year’s mystery quilt.
I have done four of them now, each a gem. But, I have some other projects I wanted to finish before starting the mystery quilt. I was just going to print the clues and make the quilt later. Maybe.
But then, several people I know wanted to do it.
And the next thing I knew, I was pulling fabric.
For the first time, I’m substituting a fabric: for Bonnie’s rich dark brown I am using two rich, midnight dark teals that have been hanging out in my stash for way too long. If I buy any other fabric, it might be a third dark teal. This dark teal does not show it’s dark richness when I try to take a picture of it.
Here you can see it provides plenty of contrast.
And here’s a pic I manipulated considerably to show the textures.
Below are pics of my aquas, corals, and neutrals:
I may add more neutrals. These were pulled from my Cotton+Steel and “text fabric” bins. On “En Provence,” I really liked the inclusion of some busier neutrals. See?
Bring on the clues.
