Start your engines!



Today is Friday and it's the beginning of a new scrappy mystery from Bonnie at Quiltville. Part 1 is already posted here.
I pulled these out of my stash this week and am combining fabrics I bought in Paducah (a green and pink batik bundle), with fabrics I bought a couple of weeks ago at the Shop Hop (greens, blacks, and whites with the green) plus some odds and ends of pieces I found when stash diving.
You need 3 colours plus a background, so I can't decide if my background should be the black or the white. I can go ahead and start part 1 because I don't have to make that decision to do the first step. Are you playing along?!? Come on...put aside your UFO's and start something new!! (Clearly I am a bad influence!)

I love your fabrics. They are my favorite of all I've seen so far. I can't wait to see it done. I'm using 30's.

This is an exciting color combination! Everyone in the group has posted pictures of such different interpretations of the color requirements. Isn't it amazing how diverse our color preferences are?

Kathy: Your colors look good together. The hardest thing so far for me was deciding what colors go where, especially for the background. It seems like it could effect the whole look of the quilt. Either way should look good, though, or Bonnie wouldn't have suggested using black as a background. Louise
