... I should start something new
I'll blame it on Kate at Life in Pieces. I'm going to try my hand at the Mosaic Mystery hosted by Cheryl at Meadow Mist Designs.
Unlike some other mysteries in blogland that have you racing to keep up, Cheryl's clues appear only once a month and extend over an 8-month period. I think I can manage that!
The fabric requirements were announced on July 4 -- 3 fabrics and a background. Since I am determined to use my stash, my choice had to revolve around the only background-worthy fabric that I have 3.25 yards of. I came up with two possible scenarios -- one bright and lively, and one sophisticated and subdued. Hoping that this might be something that would appeal to GS-1 and his soon-to-be bride, I have opted to go sophisticated. DON'T EVEN THINK IT! (That Libby doesn't know sophisticated.)
The white is the background. The floral fabric at the bottom will be the border. I used it to guide my other choices. I may have to rethink the squiggly line piece as I'm not sure it has enough contrast with the background.
Worst case scenario, I might find a replacement at Tennessee Quilts 20% off sale later this week!
