I have an interior decorating business and I understand BLACK FRIDAY! I'm not open as I work from home and I am staying home unless I am desperate. No way am I standing in line for anything today. My sister wants me to go to Joann's with her and I'll venture out even though I know that the line will stretch to the back of the store. Maybe mid morning or afternoon it won't be too bad. I do need to get about 2 yds of fabric for Bonnie Hunter's Grand Illusion Mystery Quilt! I have three color options and I"ve been waiting to see the size of her HST to choose which way to go. One of them is thrown out as some of the fabric patterns are too large to cut into 2.5 squares. Now I'm down to two options, hers or mind. I have this pretty lime green and turquoise and white fabric with chairs on it. The chairs have pillows in stripe and polka dots and little grey birds sitting on and by the chairs. I think this would be a beautiful quilt and since I am a decorator and I sell chairs I love the fabric. However, I"m having difficulty assigning all the colors to her clues. The other option is completely scrappy like she suggests and I have lots of stash scraps I can use. I would substitute purple for the pink. After seeing her clues today, I'm leaning toward that option. I will look at them both later on and make that long awaited decision! I made her Smith Mountain Morning quilt in reds and greens at a retreat this year! So loved making that quilt!
