These fabrics are gorgeous.  I love the floral piece.

Went to Jo-Ann Fabrics yesterday and found my 3 fabrics with the help of my daughter - I am not good at picking!!!! I don't know how to upload a picture here and the pictures I took with my cell phone had the colors all wrong anyway. All I know is that the colors please me and since it is my quilt - that's all that matters - right?

Excited to see next step tomorrow! Have not started cutting yet because I have a few more days before I finish my king-sized bedspread and I promised myself I could not start mystery quilt until other was completed.

Left out best part, the fabric for the backg

round was on sale, 40% off.  still spent $85 for just those three pieces.  This is not a cheap addiction!

Debbie your fabric looks great, this is what I came up with.

 

Can see the yellow flowers in the white? I decided if my SIL didn't like it, I'll keep it for myself.

Debbie:

actually, the bottom one with the leaves is going to be my background, I'm reversing mine.  and it is more brown with purple.  the blue is also purple not blue. why does prple never show up as purple?

Very curious to see how this comes out as I had debated on the same thing! I'm thinking you will get a "floating" effect with the solids on top and the print underneath.... Can't wait! I'll be posting my final choices as soon as I can escape the kids and get a pic of the fabrics!

I really want to make this one but am committed to complete a few things before I get started. So I'll be late but will keep looking at the wonderful quilts each of you will make. My time is short with all that I want done by Christmas.

Will you have a PDF for step one?  I can keep all of the files together that way and not have to print a hard copy.  I haven't started yet and always have to go to the website to get the fabric and cutting instructions.

I tried to get them to make a pdf of the first step and was told that it was already there.   However none of us has been able to find one.   I will try again.

Hi nana,

I am starting later than planned, but that gives me the advantage of reviewing the comments to clarify or correct original instructions.  I have read quite a few of the posts for step 1 and have a question, not about cutting:).  When you say 1 bkg and 2 complimentary colors,  I thought color wheel.  I understand that complimentary colors are opposite each other on the color wheel, but in looking at yours and others fabric choices, I see many using choices more analogous (side by side on the color wheel).  Which was your original intent?

I don't usually use the color wheel.  My terminology was just meant to use fabrics that looked good together and that you enjoy.

Yeah, finally got started!  I have a lot of time to make up for.  Hope to be able to get step 2 done today or tomorrow.

I discovered I somehow missed this MQ. I looked but couldn't find the pdf for this step. Is there one somewhere?

I don't think there was a PDF file.  I have a Word file that I copied and pasted Step 1 to.  I would be happy to email to you.  I tried to copy and paste but it didn't work.  Send me a private message with your email if you are interested.
