Mystery Monday 5 – the fabric

Our 5th Mystery Monday project  is a small wallhanging / table topper finishing at about 32 inches square without borders.  No yardage allowance has been made for borders.

Needs list

the printable version is here

Choose your fabrics from 2 colour families that go together.  Fabrics ABC are from one family and DEF from the other.

A – light – 0.5m                         D – dark – 0.5m

B – very light – 0.5m                  E – medium – 0.5m

C – med/bright – 0.25m             F – bright – 0.25m

F could be a print which reads as colour family 2 but has some colour 1 in it.

Borders will probably look best with fabrics C, F, E or D so make sure you can get more of any of these fabrics, just in case.  You won’t know which of them (if any) will look good until the quilt top is finished – we changed our minds several times during the making!

This is Chris’s final fabric choice – A on the left to F on the right. Notice that B (very light) is actually white and not a shade of green (Family 1) at all.

This Mystery will start at the end of this month or the beginning of next (May 30th or June 6th) depending on … life … computers … time …. ! (and the amount of coffee/chocolate we’ve consumed).

And we’d like to make a special mention of Jane’s sterling work on Mystery Monday 4 (you can click through to Jane’s blog here) – not only did she keep up splendidly week by week, the quilt top was together before the proverbial ink was dry on the final post!  Well done Jane – we think it looks terrific.
