1 set of Clue 3, 12/12/2020

I cut all my neutrals, half of the blues, and none of the purples.

This is the first year I selected different colors. I’ve never been confident about my color selection and in previous years, just took the easy way out and picked standard colors. For the few weeks between the intro and the first clue, I was talking to a bunch of guild mates and I kept saying how I’m not good at picking colors, etc. etc. and I just heard myself say all these negative things. Finally I picked myself up and said, I sound so pathetic, I’m going to challenge myself and pick different colors. I love purples, pinks and blues so those are my colors, in addition to Bonnie’s neutral and gray. I hope it all turns out and if it doesn’t, it’s okay. I’m sure someone will love it.

So for Clue 3, I spent much of my Saturday going through and pulling fabric. I don’t usually pull fabric before the clues are released. I use these mystery quilts as scrap busters and I like to go through my scrap system first before touching yardage. I went through all my neutrals and cut what I needed. Then I went through my blues and cut as long as I could. I really wanted to finish cutting the blues before calling it a night but I didn’t want to mess up and that’s what happens when I try to go on to long.

Sunday, my guild had our first zoom workshop and it was with Jan Krentz. Here’s a pic of my WIP…

Don’t mind the messy floor. I need to get a design wall set up but that’s going to be sometime from now so design floor it is.

Happy quilting friends!
