I have continued to play in my pink and blue fabrics. Although I agree that the multiple greens added depth to the stack of fabric, I went back and re-read Bonnie's description of her fabric choices.
a lighter yellow green all the way through to dark pine green
reds all the way from orange red to burgundy
ONE gold print to tie the scrappiness together
So, I'm going to pretend my blues are green, my pinks are red (a little easier) and my single green is gold. Won't that be fun to read 'green' and have to remember to pick up the blue fabric. Clearly after I print out the pattern I'll be taking a pen to it so I don't get confused. My background will be one of about 6 or 7 different white on whites, all in about the same shade of white. I briefly flirted with a a single background, but the only 2 yard piece I have is beige and I decided I didn't like it with the 'clear' pinks and blues.
Let's eat turkey, then bring on the first clue. My fabrics are pressed, I know where my ruler is and I'm off to clear the cutting board so I'll be ready Friday. - right after I drop my car off to get inspected.
