Mystery A6 - a QOV Mystery - Fabric Requirements

It is here!!! Today's the Day!! Are you ready????  Let's go find our fabrics!!

Fabric Requirements      Quilt Size: 63 x 81 inches
Mystery A6 – Name To be Determined ;-)

Dark #1    ( Navy Blue in My Example)   1  1/8 yard
Dark #2   ( Red in My example)    1 1/8 yard
Light #1  (White in my Example)   1  1/8 yard
Medium  ( tealish Blue in my Example)  this will be your background  2   7/8 yards

Fabric Hints
·         This will be SO awesome in Patriotic Fabrics –
·         You want your two Dark Fabrics to contrast with each other, and be able to stand out on their own.
·         The light should be different than your Medium, as they will be sewn next to each other.

Other Fabric Combos:
For a Monochromatic sort of look:
Dark 1:  Cream
Dark 2: Medium Gray
Light #1 : Light Gray
Medium – Dark Gray
Make sure all the grays do have a contrast

For a More Feminine Patriotic Look:
Dark #1  Navy
Dark # 2 Dark Grey
Light #1 Bright pink    
Medium:   Cream or Beige

For a Dramatic Look
Dark #1:  White
Dark #2  :  Bright Gold
Light #1:  Red
Medium:   Navy Blue

Very kind of you to offer different color combinations. Fabric selection is always the hardest part of a mystery for me. I'm hoping I'll have time to participate.
