Rethinking

The Bonnie Hunter mystery will begin in one week!! Woo-Hoo! I get to start another quilt!!! I only have 29 projects that need to be finished right now, so what’s one more!?!

Yeah, in case you hadn’t realized it, I’ve been swimming in the crazy pool for quite some time!!

I’m still planning on diving in and stitching along with everyone else on this mystery. But I’m not sure about my fabric choices.

I am definitely going to use just one fabric per color, so that I can use up some more yardage. And I had the black as the background, instead of cream neutrals. I think it might be striking with a black background.

But I’m not sure if the other colors work together. Should the magenta be something more tone-on-tone and the dark purple have more pattern to it. I have other fabrics that I could try out, but I don’t have access to photos of them right now. I’ve got one week to decide and, once again, I’m over thinking.

I think I’ll have to fix myself a cuppa tea, pull out all the fabrics I could use and just stare at it all for a while.

Peace

  1. I can NOT jump in this year. My Allietare hangs waiting for me to make my final border decision. I have 2 other Bonnie patterns from 2 classes in September to tackle. I wish I could but I just can’t. I had to “biggie size”, as Bonnie would say, your fabrics. The gold leaf fabric reads as a neutral to me. I agree about using just one fabric per color. It made a huge difference last year for me. I think I would look for “texture vs print” in your choices.

  2. Um, there’s no jumping out of the crazy pool. I like your fabrics except for that particular magenta print. Bonnie’s pieces rarely finish above 3 inches. I think the designs on the magenta print may stand out too much and not reference the remaining fabrics thus looking out of place in the final assembly. BUT I do like adding variety into the size of print pattern. Sooo, have any magenta prints with feature designs in light/dark purple, yellow, green, and black? You know they’re out there! lol. That is my half-cent’s worth of opinion; yeah, not worth much, lol.
