Each year between Thanksgiving and Christmas Bonnie Hunter over at Quiltville generously hosts a free mystery quilt along. This year's mystery is inspired by her trip to Tuscany earlier this year. Full details and the clues so far can be found on Bonnie's blog HERE
I was not going to participate this year as I do not need another full size quilt, however I would like to make a lap quilt for my son and his girlfriend for their new flat. I have decided to make just over half of the units that Bonnie makes each week. I am rounding up to the nearest number divisible by eight and that will hopefully give me enough to play around with. I may have to make extra units once the final design is revealed, by I am happy with that. In the meantime I get to join in the fun and use up some stash!
I can't decide on my final colour scheme. Bonnie is using Black, Red, Gold, White/Creams and a constant Grey fabric. I have plenty of Whites and a lovely piece of Grey that I can use, but I don't have enough of the other colours. I don't want to buy anything so at the moment it is between two colour schemes.
White, Grey, Navy, Purple, Aqua
White, Grey, Bottle Green, Purple, Orange
