Quilters' Guild Mystery Quilt
The mystery quilt instructions were to use 12 fabrics, 4 lights, 4 mediums and 4 darks, no stripes. I decided on blues, as I now know from having to pay attention to and carefully choose my colours I am using soft warm blues. My choice was partly indicated by some pretty blue and white Austrian dress fabric I had (think Heidi and Sound of Music), a lightweight cotton that I've always wanted to use, and a navy used for a pirate costume for Caitlin. Also, blues remind me of my mother. Blue has always suited her but even more so now her hair is a fine silver, and soft blue is like her personality, soft, quietly beautiful and warm.
