Veteran's Mystery Quilt is coming!

This is just a reminder that the veteran's mystery quilt project will start on May 20th. You can get all of the information on fabric requirements here. I've had a couple of questions about fabric choices so I thought I'd share them here:

  • The one type of fabric that probably will not work well are large scale prints
  • There needs to be some value contrast between fabrics 1 and 3 (like a medium and dark). It doesn't need to be a strong contrast, just some contrast.
  • Fabric 3 is seen primarily next to fabric 2. It can be lighter or darker and only needs to be a shade different but it can be almost anything. 
  • If you are going scrappy I think you will be happiest with small scale prints or tonals.
I hope that helps! If you want to bring your fabric choices to the meeting Tuesday we can look at them and make sure they will work well for your quilt.

Check the blog on May 20 for the first clue!
