SPECIAL THANKS to my testers of this mystery – Joan, Christina, Jana, Kim and Peggy (Jan 5 thru 16)

*** NOTE **** Fabric yardage given is generous amounts.

Quilt Notes - You should choose fabrics that coordinate well together, but beyond that, the sky's the limit! The quilt will look great in anything but directional prints. I would recommend you use crisp bright clear fabrics.  Let each color stand on its own and not blend into the other fabrics chosen.

Fabric Requirements: 
These measurements presume you are using 44" - 45" wide fabric unless otherwise indicated.

A) Background – 1 1/2 yards (background fabric for quilt)
A) Background – 1 1/2 yards fabric (used for borders, setting triangles, corner triangles)
    For our sample we chose Black.

B) Bright Jewel Tone Fabric – Fat Quarter
    For our sample we chose a Blue Jewel Tone

C) Bright Jewel Tone Fabric – 1/4 yard
    For our sample we chose a Green Jewel Tone

D) Bright Jewel Tone Fabric – 3/8 yard
    For our sample we chose a Red Jewel Tone

E) Bright Jewel Tone Fabric – 1/2 yard
    For our sample we chose a Purple Jewel Tone

F) Bright Jewel Tone Fabric – 3/8 yard
    For our sample we chose a Bright Yellow

    For our sample we chose to use a solid Black for the background.  For the other bright jewel tones we chose Moda Marbles (mfg company). Try to make sure you get a crisp clear difference in the colors.
