Bonnie Hunter has posted the fabric requirements for her upcoming Mystery Quilt, Grand Illusion. The colors were inspired by the Grand Hotel on Mackinac Island in Michigan. While I have absolutely no time to start a new project in the foreseeable future, my favorite thing to do is select a palette of fabrics for one. So here is what I chose:
Thousands of quilters will start this quilt, or at the very least gather fabrics and print the instructions. Me, too. Bonnie provided paint chip numbers for those who want to make their quilt exactly like hers. My fabrics are a little darker/brighter than the chips, but I like them an that's what counts.
Note: Instructions will be posted on Bonnie's blog beginning November 28. This is just "gather in the fabrics" time.
