It's Time For A Mystery

Do you remember my Senior Year Class Project? I chose Kathy's suggestion to make a mystery quilt outside my normal color range. Well, the opportunity to accomplish that has come.

I'm testing a mystery quilt for a designer on one of my Yahoo groups. I recently purchased 3 cuts of Thimbleberries fabric just for this purpose. I am not a fan of Thimbleberries. I find the colors too muted for my personal tastes. Unfortunately, the pattern calls for 3 1/2 yards of a background fabric. I don't have any cuts of fabric that big so I had to go shopping. I chose the red and yellow Thimbleberries fabric and today I found a green print to use as the background for the quilt. What do you think of my choices?

The fabrics are washed and ready for ironing and then cutting. Stay tuned for my progress on this quilt.

Go Red Sox!
