I had a lot of fun making Cheryl’s (Meadow Mist Designs) Foothills Mystery Quilt last year. When she announced that she would be doing another mystery quilt starting in June, I knew I would participate. This year Cheryl is calling it the Midnight Mystery Quilt, and it would be so much fun if you joined us, too! On Thursday, the first set of instructions were released: Fabric Selection.
I really wanted to shop my stash, and I spent a good amount of time playing with options for my fabric. I had a fabric pull that used up material that I would be happy to see put to good use (a focal print of yellow and purple tulips complimented with Kona buttercup, Kona eggplant, and Kona snow), and I had a fabric pull that uses some of the fabrics that speak to my heart and I have been holding on to, hoping for the right project to come along… I think you can guess what won. 🙂
Fabric A – Alison Glass, Mercury in Yellow
Fabric B – Swirl Stars Glitter in Royal
Fabric C – Riley Blake Rocket Age Rocket Blast in Navy (plenty for the group and binding, and perhaps even the backing…)
Fabric D – Kona Snow
These fabrics are perfect for a Quilting Jetgirl, right? 😀
If you are going to quilt along with the Midnight Mystery Quilt, let me know – I love to see how different fabric choices read in the same pattern and it is fun to have others to follow along with each month.
Linking up to Sunday Stash. It might not be new fabric, but shopping my stash was so fun this week!
