Like a Hole in the Head...

I need another project like I need a hole in the head. Seriously. But as often happens when I get on Twitter, Flickr, or any other social media outlet, I got caught up in the excitement around Bonnie Hunter's new Mystery Quilt-a-long: Easy Street.

So, along with the 1,362 other things I've got going right now, I went ahead and pulled some fabrics for this one.

I think I'll use my Denyse Schmidt Flea Market Fancy for this one. Bonnie's colors are a bit brighter than I want for a large quilt that will probably be used in one of our bedrooms. The fresh blue and greens of Denyse's line are closer to the palette I use in my home.

Lots of other things going on! Now that the craziness of last week's holiday is over, I will hopefully have a little time to bring this blog up-to-date....oh wait, there's still Christmas to get through isn't there? Eeek! 



  1. Good for you. I have those fabrics as well and like the idea of using them for this project.You might want to add a few more fabrics, not that I would ever tell you what to do. ;-)

    1. LOL, thanks Jaye! I forgot to include the FMF golds (in place of Bonnie's purple) in this picture.

  2. Gorgeous choice of colors, can't wait to see it come together.

  3. I like that you're using some bigger prints. I will be interested to see your quilt come together!

  4. Lovely fabric choices.

  5. Your Flea Market Fancy fabric looks like a lovely choice for the quilt. Look forward to seeing your progress.

  6. I hear you about needing another project like a hole in your head. I'm right there in the same boat -- but like you I pulled fabrics from my stash too! I just got started on the cutting of step one strips, so it will be interesting to see if we can keep up with the 1,000 others doing this mystery. I hope we do!

  7. I love seeing what everyone has pulled out for the background and their choice for constant! Thank you for sharing yours, Sharyn

  8. J'adore le choix de tes couleurs,
