New Mystery Quilt

Did everybody see the new mystery quilt over at Quiltville.com?  It looks like Bonnie has chosen red, blue and black along with a neutral background.  I am thinking of doing hot pink with teal and then using dark purple as the accent.  I have a lot of those colors in my scrap bin from a couple of baby quilts that evolved in different ways, so it would be nice to get them into something.  I took a few minutes when I got home from work today to pull some potential fabrics, and I think I like the combination.  The first clue comes out on Friday so now is the time to jump in with both feet!

Oh girl.....I think you and I are up the same alley! I haven't made an attempt to head downstairs yet, BUT I was thinking teals/blues, pinks and purples. And seeing your picture----yup, yup! LOVE the color combination!

I printed out her posting and I'm ready to use up all those scraps. I'm going to follow the same colour choices as Bonnie.

I did see the link and will print out and start it when I can in December... maybe some thanksgiving week sewing on it? Not sure of my colors yet... I'll have to see what I have a good amount of for colors.... but might follow Bonnie as the stack of blue and red/pinks is pretty big.
