Carolina Christmas Mystery Quilt

One more day before we begin. I've found a few more fabrics I'm considering. I won't know till I start cutting which ones I am going to use. 
After a little more digging, I  found these darker colors, a wine, gold and dark rich blue with a light gray tone on tone for my background.  That's the picture on the top

I also found a dark background for the rust, green and turquoise, hoping it would make the colors pop a little more

Another light background  with a little more life to it, not so white white. 

This was my original choice. 

Let the mystery begin. 

Hope everyone has a happy Thanksgiving.

Carolina Christmas Mystery Quilt

Bonnie Hunter is doing another great mystery starting the day after Thanksgiving. Those of us who aren't brave enough to face 'Black Friday' shoppers will have another project to keep us busy. 

So far these are the colors I've chosen, but they are subject to change. We still have a week before we start.  I'm making it easy on myself this time. I'm sticking to three main colors and one or more cream tone on tone background. 

Now we are off to Home Depot to get paint for the kitchen. With a little luck, the new bathroom and kitchen cupboards will be up and running before Thanksgiving. It will be nice to have a complete bathroom again.
