Change of Fabrics for Bonnie Hunter Mystery
As I posted earlier, I started with these fabrics—which replicate Bonnie Hunter’s color scheme.
They’re pretty. No doubt. (The deep dark is a midnight teal.)
But,, but—I have been thinking all winter that I want to work with lots of low-volume fabrics this winter. And I have several projects picked out to start. And I’ve been clearing the decks to get to them.
I had not intended to make this year’s mystery when it starts, but to print out the pattern for sure. Bonnie’s mystery patterns are the best. But a friend asked me to accompany her on this year’s mystery journey. And several more have joined us. This friend was over the other day with fabrics to audition. Along the way, she looked at me and said, “You know, I really want to work with neutrals and not these colors we’ve picked out.”
”Me too,” I said, and I’m going to pull out a different combo from my stash and see what it looks like.”
”Let’s do it RIGHT NOW,” said my friend. And off we went.
Here’s what we pulled:
Now I’m happy!
And, yes, these are colors I used in “Butterscotch Fall,” so clearly I have not scratched this itch enough yet. I can’t wait to see how these colors come together.

I LOVE the neutrals you and your friend picked! The mystery quilt is going to be amazing!
