Bonnie Hunter has posted the fabric requirements for her new mystery quilt and my biggest fear has been confirmed - I don't have nearly enough fabric for the "neutral" requirements - at least not of the fabric I hoped to use. It's not formally quilting fabric and I bought it cheaply on Ebay a few years ago. This totally disrupts my colour scheme!
I'm pretty sure it was originally a spotlight fabric but I doubt it wo0uld be around anymore. What do I do? I had a look on Ebay and it isn't there - not that I expected it to be. Hmmmm...
Bonnie's quilts are naturally scrappy so I use what I have of the background fabric and add others to it or choose a different neutral altogether. I have lots of small scale floral-on-whites.
The problem is my original choice for background would have tied in my 4 colours. Maybe I can use what I have of it and throw some other whites in or do I save it for another quilt? I have about 2 metres and the instructions call for about 5 yards.
