Bonnie Hunter's newest mystery is about to begin! On October 23rd, she posted the Intro to the mystery including her color choices: Orange, Yellow, Green, and Blue. You can see the color cards she picked here:
Bonnie's Color Cards
I'm not really that keen on her colors this year, unlike last year's quilt with amethyst, lime green, teal, and white/black. So I've decided to go a different direction with my colors. And for inspiration, being a car enthusiast as well as a quilter, I decided to take my color cues from BMW's Motorsport division. Yes, I chose the "M" colors:
I think this color combination is very handsome, don't you? Here's how I'm going to arrange my colors in relation to Bonnie's colors...
I'll use Dark Blue where Bonnie currently has her blues.
I'll use Light Blue where Bonnie will use green.
I'll use Red where Bonnie will use orange.
And I'll use Grey where Bonnie will use yellow.
I will still use white or very light cream neutrals, just as Bonnie will be with her color scheme. But I want to keep this quilt crisp so I'll try to go through my whites before I touch any of my creams.
So, what about you? Are you going to play along? What colors will you use? Which size will you make? Bonnie will be providing directions for two sizes this time... Big and Bigger LOL. I'm going to do the smaller of the two, since I've made several king size quilts in the last year I've decided I don't like making them that big. :)
Until next time....
