Magnolia Mystery Quilt - Fabric Choices

Cheryl from Meadow Mist Designs launched her 4th mystery quilt along recently.  This will be my 3rd time participating - you can see my Midnight Mystery quilt here and my Meadow Mystery quilt here.

Last year, I was a little disappointed with my fabric choices so I told myself I would do the "un-mystery" version this time around. But in the end, discovering the design a little bit at a time is too much fun.

Also, Cheryl provided some really good examples and kits for different fabric combinations which made me feel a little more confident picking good fabrics for my version.

I'm doing the queen size version so that's a pretty large stack of fabric right there!

My fabric A is Carolyn Friedlander's Crosshatch in Creamsicle.

My choice for fabric B is Lace Elements in Plum by Art Gallery.

I went with Kona Charcoal for fabric C and Carolyn Friedlander's Doe in White for fabric D.  I love the really cool tone on tone print and I think it'll look pretty nice as my background.

The next set of instructions will be published on the first Thursday of August so on August 3. I can't wait to get started!
