Hello everyone and happy Thursday! The fifth annual Project QUILTING Mystery Quilt Along starts one week from today. I wanted to give you plenty of time to pull your fabric so you’re ready to get started when December 22nd arrives. The final dimensions of this quilt will be 27″ x 40.5″.
I’ve made two versions of this quilt so far. You are going to have three fabrics for your background and then three fabrics that should “pop” against that background.
My first fabric pull utilized an ombre fabric that I broke into three sections BG1 is the lightest section of the ombre, BG2 is the medium section of the ombre and BG3 is the dark section of the ombre. Then for my “pop” I pulled Fabrics A, B and C.
- BG1 (light background): 3/4* yard
- BG2 (medium background): 3/4* yard
- BG3 (dark background): 3/4* yard
- Fabric A: fat 1/4 yard
- Fabric B: fat 1/4 yard
- Fabric C: fat 1/4 yard
*You could get away with 1/2 yard but a 3/4 yard will give you plenty of buffer for any cutting errors.
And here is my fabric pull using three different fabrics for the background. I decided that I wanted to make the background more color based and then I went with a black/white/grey scheme for my fabric “pop” choices.
*this fabric yardage does not include what is needed for the backing or binding.
Once you have your fabric pulled please share a post on instagram with the hashtag #pqmysteryqal5 and/or in the Challenge Quilts facebook group. We want to see your progress! The first clue will be posted Thursday, December 22nd at noon!
