Meadow Mystery Quilt Fabric Selection

On Thursday, Cheryl @Meadow Mist Designs kicked off her third annual mystery quilt. This year, she is calling it the #MeadowMysteryQuilt, and I was eagerly anticipating her fabric selection instructions. I have been fortunate to follow along on each of her two previous mystery quilts, and I am excited to watch as her mystery quilt group grows each year.

I decided to go out on a limb and take a somewhat “scrappy” approach to the fabric groupings this year. I really wanted to use the Studio E Peppered Cottons that I received recently, but I only have a half yard of each. So Fabrics A through D are all Peppered cottons grouped into colorways:

Fabric A = Green
Fabric B = Blues
Fabric C = Purples
Fabric D = Grays

Fabric E = Kona Snow

Since Cheryl talks about the color value as part of her tips for fabric selection, I converted the photo of my fabric selection as a final check before deciding I’ll see what happens!

It is always so much fun to see how different the same design reads using different fabrics, and I am looking forward to working on this quilt through next April and seeing everyone’s unique interpretation. 🙂

    This looks good! I am very excited for all of us. I have joined as well and am nowhere near sure what fabrics to use. Be still my beating heart – ha ha. Looking forward to sharing thoughts on the project.

    I think these will look fabulous in the quilt this year. I have my colors picked out, but might change it up a bit. Decisions. Decisions 🙂

  7. I think that these fabrics are going to look great. I love the peppered cottons, the different warp and weft give such a great look and texture to the fabric.

  8. Great colors! I can’t wait to see this one come together! 🙂

  9. love those colours, and I’m sure they will all end up in a stunning quilt once again

    What a great idea to convert the photo to grey scale to see contrast! I heard this several years ago, but need to pull it back to the front of my memory.

    I still haven’t decided on mine! Anytime green and blue are together, I’m in; seeing yours with purple, now, that will be cool.

I really appreciate the time and thought you take to comment, and I look forward to conversing with you. :)
