Quiltville Mystery

Yippee...I am finally starting the Quiltville mystery called Carolina Crossroads! I have been thinking about it, dreaming about fabric combinations, and wishing for time to sew, and here it is! My husband is taking the kids to a football game tomorrow, and I get to sew all day...can't wait!
As I wrote on Dec. 26th, if I couldn't make the entire quilt from my stash fabric, I wasn't going to do this project. I dug around in the boxes today and came up with a huge pile of browns, blues, rusts, etc. but wasn't happy with the thought of sewing all those dark colours. Then I found a box of fabrics that were black backgrounds with lots of colour and I was happy to have those as my dark. Then I settled on white fabrics with some black patterns for the lights, and picked bright green for my accent colour. I'm not sure if I'll have enough green fabrics, so I have pulled out some blue to use if I need to. I have cut enough strips to get started on the rail fence blocks.
