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.

I’m ready!
