Allietare mystery link up clue #3 & more

Bonnie Hunter is hosting her yearly winter mystery and I am having a blast. I started out to only make the smaller size and while making clue #2 decided to make the full size. I only had a tad over a yard of fabric of my constant (a beige with butterfly print) for the gray. So I will be using 2 fabrics for my constant. Can't wait to see how this works.

Anyhow back to clue 3. These are mine.

While making Clue 3 and looking at the pictures on FB of the ladies completed clues I found myself liking Bonnie's colors. I had a gray print that I really liked but it was very directional. I like stripes and plaids a lot but really wasn't sure I wanted to attempt to use this one in a mystery. So I made a sample and asked the ladies on Quiltville's open studio. I figured if I got 100 like in 24 hours I would go for it. Here is the sample.

I received a few comments with the same concern I had but also some that that loved it. Before 8 hours were past I had over 100 likes. So I am making two full size mystery quilts this go around.

Clue #3

Thank you Bonnie for a great mystery!

I love the stripes in your gray. I think it will add some great texture and interest in the final quilt. I think if the lines end up going different directions, it will really add to the quilt. Happy stitching!!

I'm sure both quilts will be beautiful!
