I'm making the throw sized quilt so it didn't take me too long to develop my cast for the mystery.
The beige in the upper left is my setting, the black paisley is the protagonist, the red check is the foil and the tan/brown fabrics are the rest of the supporting cast. Alison suggested not cutting all your coordinating strips so you can select which colors you want to use as you go along. I have two coordinating prints that I'm not sure how they will work with the rest of the quilt.
I didn't cut either of these. I'm waiting to see how those supporting fabrics are used and if they really blend with the rest of the fabrics. I may end up using the rose print as a border if it doesn't end up as a coordinate in the quilt. Another thing to like about mystery quilt alongs is that you can choose your own ending.
Like any good mystery, I can't wait to see what's next. It's two more weeks till clue three, so you've got plenty of time to catch up. The Daisy Chain Mystery fabric requirements are posted here. I hope you'll play along because it's fun to see how different settings and characters affect the end result.
