Mystery Monday - Part 2

I'm a late starter on Bonnie Hunter's Easy Street Mystery quilt.  In fact, I added the button to the sidebar, saved and printed the intro and first two sets of instructions before I managed to look in my stash for fabric.  I knew I probably didn't have enough scraps or yardage to fit her colorway choices, but pulled them anyway - nope, definitely not enough, relying mostly on my scraps selection as I don't want to cut into actual yardage. With that realization, I decided I'd better come up with a different colorway.  I printed out a color wheel, and I agonized over what I could do with what I had. I pulled five or six different sets of color and decided my best options were a set of blues, a set of reds and a set of yellows.  None are in primary colors as I don't work in them for the most part; all are subdued varieties of these colors, and in looking at my photo, I think a few of the lighter ones will be swapped out for more medium/dark tones.  I also need to get just a little more of the black on white and may swap out a couple of the ones I have.

I hope to get some cutting and sewing in yet today.  

Head on over to Quiltville for a look at the progress of other Easy Street participants


  1. Oooh, I like your colorway. Amazing how many different quilts we're going to see all from one pattern. Can't wait to see more of your quilt progress. Laughed when I read you got everything else done before choosing any fabric--got inspired, huh?

  2. I like the primary colors! (I know you said that is not exactly what they are - but overall -they look like that in the photo.) And, I like the variety of depth I think it makes it a little more interesting. Should be fun to see it all come together!


  3. I think your fabrics are wonderful! Glad you're getting to play.

  4. It will be fun to see how similar/different all of our quilts will be. Loving that red.

  5. I think your colours will work together beautifully. It's great you're joining in.
