Best of the 60 ~ Let's Organize your Fabric!
T- 1 week, to the kick off of the Best of the 60's! Hopefully! My goal is to kick of the Mystery next week. However, we have a group that selected A Blooming Bunch, that is awaiting their fabric. It has been suck on a cargo ship, Moda, Pennington Quilt Work, The Yankee Quilter and I are constantly monitoring it.
I put together this message, figuring it would be the easiest way to explain it. While we have about 50 people waiting on A Blooming Bunch fabric, we have over 200 who have their fabric, so we are trying to keep the recently pushed back date of November 20th to start the Mystery. However, if A Blooming Bunch is going to get to the majority of people after November 24th, a few days after Clue 1's current release date, I will have to push it back a week or so. All others will need to understand. We are taking it day by day, and I expect to make the decision mid-next week.
Everyone participating in the Best of the 60's; please watch the video, so you understand all sides of this situation.
Today, I want to take you through organizing your fabric.
- Note: If you don't have it yet, and you are using one of the fabric collections I elected, you do not need to stress, as I'm providing targeted guidance for you.
- Those of you who choose your own, really need to analyze the fabric. If you went with mine selections, I've done the analysis.
- No matter what do not stress.
- Clue only- Use the link that was emailed to you from Sendowl (Sew on the Go Downloads).

- Note: If you elected to use (13-14) Half Yards instead of 24 Fat Quarters, you need to cut them into Fat Quarters now.
- That contrast with each other. In other words, fabrics that do not read as the same color and are not in the same color family.
- That complement each other. In other words, fabrics that go well together.
If you opted to go with a dual Split-Complementary color plan, select groups that are from those complimentary sets.
Peacock Galore Pairings shown:
Tip: I found it easiest to start with the sets of 3. I took a Split Complementary pair and added another fabric from the other Split Complementary pair. Then I did the opposite to get my other set of 3. Alternatively, you could take 2 from a Split Complementary pair and then add a 3rd fabric that (bridges) is multicolored.
Note: That have different values. Where able, try grouping a med-dark with a light-dark.
