Out of my comfort zone

I'm going to do a Mystery Quilt in March (a one nighter) and I have to have 3 rectangles from 38 different fabrics. I thought maybe I'd start using some of my batik stash .. (this is about 2/3 of my batiks) but I never find colour's easy to choose. I think I'll have to play with these for a few days rather than start cutting straight away. At least the rectangles are only 3 1/2" x 6 1/2" so if I have to buy some it won't cost a lot.

Kayjay.. honestly when you are doing a mystery and they ask you to pick 32 fabs you can't go wrong..to play might frustrate you cause you don't know what you are playing for...go with the fact that it is a mystery. I will look gorgeous and with batiks you can't go wrong..LOL.. can't wait to see what you get out of 32 fat quarters.

Hi Karen,

Sometimes "out of your comfort zone"
can be great as you will do something new and creative.

I look forward to seeing your quilt.
Have a good Thursday.

Hugs
Carolyn
