    I also would go with the reds and use a variety.

    My colors are different than the paint chips , but some are the same color family.

    Green for green, yellow for yellow, dark & light blue for dark and light purple, creams for creams/whites.

    I like the browns as it reminds me of sunflowers. Think of a picture with sunflowers against a blue sky at twilight. Perfect.
    Blogging ahead.....research in quilting and sewing with a dab of cooking/recipes too.

    I think both the brown or red fabrics will be equally beautiful. The reds may give more of a "pop" and the browns may give more of a "homey" feel. With a mystery of course just never sure where these constant fabrics will land. Yes I think using a variety of either your brown or red fabrics will be awesome. Since you asked for opinions, I will give mine ...if you choose the brown fabrics as your constant I would leave out the 2nd from the top. It's a cream background with brown flowers .. it's a beautiful fabric but depending on how we cut this constant it might end up looking more cream than brown. And I really love all your color choices .. probably going to come very close to what I pick as well.

    Thanks for your feedback. I agree that either would work, but I've decided to go with the reds. Can't wait for the first clue!

    Hi all, haven't been on the forum for a while but I checked in to see if others were talking about Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt so it's great to find this thread. I've never done one of her mystery quilts, but I have heard so much about them I decided to try. I was a bit taken aback by the colorway she chose, but the Tuscan colors are so beautiful and out of my comfort zone that I decided I would try it. I'm pulling fabrics and I'm hoping I have enough in my stash to work with. I will try to get a picture of my fabric pull and get some feedback. Would like to join the group sewing along together I guess.
