Mystery quilt colors

 
First of all, I want to thank the Facebook post that recommended using this smart phone app from Sherwin Williams. Very clever! 
 
Bonnie Hunter released her colors yesterday for the next mystery quilt (En Provence). I watched her mysteries online for a couple of years before making last year's mystery quilt (Allietare). Last year her colors were inspired by a trip to Italy.
 
This year's mystery is inspired by a visit to France and the colors really made me think spring.  She posted some gorgeous photos of lavender fields and you can really see where this color palette originates.
 
I haven't decided yet if I will make the mystery full sized or make a smaller version.  It might depend on what I find in my stash. I know already without looking that the yellow won't be found hiding in my sewing room. It just isn't a color I think to buy when enhancing the stash.  Same with the lavender. I probably have the green, the pink and the darker purple. But we'll see what I find. And since the first clue won't be posted until Black Friday in November I have plenty of time.

  1. Pretty colors.

    My sister and I have decided not to participate this year. Bonnie's quilts are beautiful, but contain too many pieces for my comfort level. Marilyn enjoyed making Grand Illusion.

  2. Thanks for the info on the app. I'll have to try it. I have my colors picked, but am thinking that I should put some more scrappiness into my fabric choices.
