I've finally pulled my fabrics for this quilt. I'd love some feedback on what you think? The very  bottom fabric (#1) is small yellow circles, very pale. Hard to see. The orange stripe is #9. Is there enough tone variety? color variety? print/solid mix?

#2 has some bluish tones to it, the blue plaid has some green & yellow, the blue flowered has some green and the striped has some green (maybe I should just let you read it how it reads on the screen?)

I like it! Especially mixing in the plaid and the stripe.

Karyn,

The yellow #4 might be too strong for the rest of your beautiful collection.  I like all the different patterns.

Sandi,

I've swapped that yellow out about 10 times LOL! I have a yellow check that is lighter...but I think it might be too light. That one seemed to hold it's own a little better with the blue. For me, picking fabrics for a mystery quilt is prob. the hardest part...without really knowing what is going to end up where, it's hard to know.

Thank you all for your feedback. Totally appreciate it! This is the first MQ I am actually doing. I followed one at quiltville last year...but took so long to choose my fabrics, I got too far behind to "play" along.

Keep the comments coming!

THANK YOU!

Sometimes it is very beautiful to have the contrast of light and dark fabrics!

Very nice fabrics Karyn.  I actually used the fourth from the left in MQ-4, which was my first mystery quilt.
