Daisy Chain Mystery – fabric pull

Are you doing the Daisy Chain Mystery QAL hosted by Alison of Little Bunny Quilts? I’m so excited to join in.

The best part of starting a new quilt – especially a mystery quilt – is to rummage through your stash and pull out the fabric. I had fun pulling out all my large scale prints and finding matching accent and backgrounds.

Alison’s fabric requirements are quite flexible. Head over to her blog for detailed “clues” on how to pick your fabric – scale of prints, contrast, variety, etc. She is making two quilts along with us. Her fabric pull is a good clue as well.

This is my fabric pull. The bright colorful butterfly print is Timeless Treasures Monterrey – Butterfly wings by Chong A Hwang. The mottled fuchsia/magenta is Timeless Treasures Studio-C basics in lipstick (I think). I have an assortment of blues and teals for the coordinating fabrics – most of them are from FQ bundles of Alison Glass Sun print 2018 or Tula Pink True Colors. The background is Kona white.

I wanted to make the twin size but the butterfly fabric is just short of the 1.5 yards needed for twin. Alison has an answer to that too in her blog – She says make a smaller size and then add borders or additional blocks. I may just do that.

Looking forward to a colorful and fun mystery quilt!
