Note that she says the blocks will not be created in anything along a camping theme, but you can choose to use camping-themed fabrics or at least outdoorsy colors.

That being said, I did sign-up to receive the patterns.  I have some "up north" woodsy fabrics from previous MN shop hops, and this might be a good way to use them.

I've got my eye on this one too. I like the size - I can manage it. I will have to use my stash. 

Question for the group: Should I try to find fabric that is close to her choices? Or if I decide to use a different color palate - how do I go about choosing the right colors?

Marian, you can definitely choose your own colors. I would determine which of your fabrics are the darks, the mediums, and the lights, and plug them in place of her darks, mediums and lights. As a reference, you might want to print off her fabric supply list and actually tape or pin a small swap of each of your replacement fabrics directly on that sheet next to the fabrics they are replacing.

Thanks Nancy, that would get me organized.  Color has always been my challenge.

I am in for this one.  I am going to pick my fabrics as I go.  However, I was on Fat Quarter Shop and saw the Yogi Bear fabric was 50% off and the background might make a really cute background for these blocks!    Thinking.

Well, I signed up to get the e-mail notifications, but I'm not sure how sold I am on this.  I would have really liked the blocks to be more of an obvious camping theme other than just using woodsy fabrics.  I'll see how it strikes me when it starts.

I signed up and have looked at my fabrics.  IF I do this I might do it in Route 66 fabrics. Not really sure I want to commit to another mystery.  But this one looks really interesting.

I signed up.  Thinking if I went with camping theme this could be a gift for my brother and his fiance.  I guess it could be their Christmas gift next year.  Of course this means I need to buy fabric..will think on this.

So when I first saw this post, I immediately thought of the dark green camping fabric (lower right in pic) that's been sitting in my stash forever.  I was hoping I could mix it with the "outdoorsy" fabric from the MN Shop Hop lines over the past two summers, but the colors are not in the same families.  I don't want to buy any more fabric for a while, so I'll start January's block with just the MN fabrics and other blenders from my stash.

I will say, having participated in Pat Sloan BOM's in the past, they tend to look best in a controlled number of closely coordinating fabrics - not too scrappy.  12 1/2" blocks are fairly large, so you'll see bigger cuts of the fabrics than we are seeing in the Bonnie Hunter mystery going on now.  Think I'll skip on over to Pat's web pages to see what others are posting for fabrics....

I put together some fabric. I think I will like a mystery BOM as we can adjust as the blocks come out. I might look for more tone on tone fabric. 

I'll try!

Oh I do like those grunge fabrics.  Keep peeking at the Parks and Recreation collection at Missouri Star.

Hmmm, there are enough small pieces that I can't really feature my Minnesota fabrics. I see now why she is recommending near solids. Thinking now that I will collect patterns, but not start in on this. Still plenty left to do on my Bonnie Hunter mystery.
