Frolic! A Quiltville Winter Mystery! (Intro)


Welcome to the introductory post for this year's Quiltville Winter Mystery - FROLIC!

This year it’s all about the Texas wildflowers!

How many of you remember my very fun trip Texas back in April of 2019?

Three of us had walked out to a field of Texas Bluebonnets growing in a patch alongside the highway – we HAD to get our photos taken in the flowers.  Many selfies and group shots ensued – and it wasn’t until AFTER I posted the photos that several folks said “Be Careful! There may be snakes in there!”

Too little too late, folks – the photos had already been taken and posted and we were no longer there!

But all through the Spring, Summer and into this fall my thoughts have wandered back to the fun we had that day frolicking in the Texas wildflowers on our way to Mineola.

Click HERE for Printer-Friendly PDF.


If you’ve followed along with our many past Quiltville Mysteries, you’ll already have a good handle of what happens.  I’m glad to have you back sewing with me again!
If you are one of the many, many new ones who are joining in from the land of Instagram, Facebook and beyond, I want to welcome you.

This post will contain the colors, examples of the fabrics used in my own Frolic quilt, and yardage requirements. And some other tools that you might find helpful in the construction process.

You are NOT required to sew with these colors, and you can change them to whatever color palette you would like, but please remember value and contrast when switching things up.

Our stunning quilt finishes at 82’’ x 82".  If you want a smaller size, start with 1/2 the units.  You can always go back and make more units once you decide on your own layout.  If you want it bigger, you can add more blocks and/or borders.

I view our mysteries not just as “A Pattern” but as a vehicle to teach methods, tips, tricks, helps and hints while working with each unit.  I will provide a printer-friendly PDF for each clue, and for those wanting to save paper, just save the PDF to your computer or tablet and look at it there without printing it out.  Be sure you know where you tablet or phone SAVES PDFs so you know where to retrieve them.

Clues and links to corresponding PDFs will only be available until the quilt becomes a digital pattern download for purchase in the Quiltville Store.

You can choose to print certain pages but not others from within your printer settings.  You can also copy/paste the blog post into a word document and delete extra photos, extra text that you don’t need. Just save the nitty-gritty. You can choose how to save paper/ink yourself.  My job is to teach, however many pages it takes.

PAINT CHIPS:  These are NOT required, but they are helpful when choosing many fabrics that have to work together from your stash.  These are guidelines only, and I have even pushed the boundaries of those color families a bit in all directions so I have a quilt with more life that doesn’t look so flat.

Yardage amounts are for scraps and/or planned yardage.  If you want one piece of yardage for each color, you are fine there too!

Our paint chips this year come from the Sherwin Williams line at Lowes.  I have also photographed as well as SCANNED these chips for your viewing pleasure!

Those who wish to explore shades and tints within our chosen colors or in choosing a completely different color scheme may also find the Ultimate 3-in-1 Color Tool helpful.  It’s found in the Quiltville Store for those who want guidance, but don’t have access to or don't want to pick up paint chips.



This year I SCANNED the paint chips!

Remember, paint chips aren’t necessary, but are helpful when trying to keep contrast while choosing fabrics.


Front and Back!


Oh, these are so good together!


The Blues!


Dress Blues & Scanda

See the two chips in the middle?

These are the Blue Bonnets of our Frolic Fun!

We’ve been running winter mysteries for many years now, and sometimes I need to switch things up for MYSELF to keep things interesting!  

This year we will be pinning things in sets that stay together.  More about that later as we go, but you will want to be sure that you have enough lighter blues that will contrast with your darker ones because they may touch each other in the block. You can use the fabrics more than once, and mix up the sets, but keep an eye on contrast. If you sew two of the same value together, they will blend too much and you won’t see the piecing.  So go for some light ones and some dark ones.

Look for a variety of prints, textures, stripes, geometrics – some of mine had other colors on them, some did not.

Dress (Dark) Blues: 2 1/2 yards.

Scanda (Lighter) Blues: 1 1/4 yards.


Framboise!

(A fancy French word for a color family of fuscia to raspberry!)


Some of my fabrics – I had fun digging.

There are some older ones in here!

All of the fuscia to raspberry shades – 2 1/4 yards total!


Aqua!  The color of our April sky!

The paint chip lists this color as REFRESH.  They got it right!


It’s also a very REFRESHing Featherweight color!
(From our San Luis Obispo workshops in June!)

Keep these light.  Just keep in mind that they need to be lighter than your lightest blue and you should be good.  Got any leftover aquas from our Grand Illusion mystery several years back?  I used many of mine here!  Again…KEEP THEM LIGHT!  It’s a soft and hopeful April sky with loads of promise.

Refresh (Aqua) fabrics: 1 1/2 yards total.


Those super fun neutrals!

They need no introduction because we all know and love them so much!


Barely pink and so delicate – almost white, but blushing!

I didn’t use barely pink as a neutral, but some of my neutrals had a bit of pink in them. 

The paint chips are Pure White to Choice Cream, And I just call them NEUTRALS. You know that means ANYTHING and EVERYTHING that has a white, cream or beige background, right?  Just don’t go too dark with them.  They need to be lighter than your lightest aqua.  It’s about contrast.

Neutrals: 4 yards.

And beneath it all – that abundant verdant spring green!


A CONSTANT green this year!

Parakeet (grassy yellow/green) 1 1/2 yards.

While you can go scrappy with this color, I chose a piece of bigger yardage that had been sitting quite a while that was the PERFECT shade for what I wanted to do.  So feel free to use many greens in place of one.


Fresh Palette by Carrie Nelson of Miss Rosie’s Quilt Co.
A Henry Glass & Co fabric.

I also want to put out there once again that if you are NOT a scrappy quilt maker and you would rather just use one piece of yardage for each color – go for it. It will be beautiful.

For those changing colors – all I can suggest is that you pair up each fabric with your other choices and make sure that they ALL have contrast with each other because you won’t know what fabric is ending up next to what. They may all touch each other at some point. CONTRAST CONTRAST CONTRAST.  Even between the two blues there is contrast.

So let’s recap this again.

Frolic Yardage Requirements:


VF14 Dress (dark) blues: 2 1/2 yards (SW9176)
CC15 Scandia (lighter) blue: 1 1/4 yards (SW6529)
GS03 Framboise (fuscia to raspberry) 2 1/4 yards (SW6566)
VF07 Refresh (aqua) 1 1/2 yards (SW6751)
Pure White to Choice Cream (neutrals) 4 yards 
CP06 Parakeet (green) 1 1/2 yards. (SW6711)

I will be demonstrating my Essential Triangle Tool with this mystery.  You also have the option to use the Simple Folded Corners ruler or the Simple Folded Corners Mini in this quilt.  

I will not be giving any Accuquilt die information as it gives away too much.

While I will always give unit size – both unfinished and finished, it is impossible for me to include every different way to do each unit so if you wish to use a different method than I am presenting, go by unit size given and know that alternative methods may take more fabric and time.

Our first clue goes live Black Friday, November 29th!  That gives you nearly a whole month to pull it all together.

During the running of our mystery, I will be in Germany & Austria with my Quiltville Goes to Bavaria group through Craftours.  That post will be written ahead and will likely be an easier one as I will be basically unreachable to answer any questions.

Let’s hope there aren’t any!

And as has become a Quiltville tradition, may I just remind everyone:


Let’s have a ball Frolicking in Bluebonnets!


Quiltville Quote of the Day

Punkin Patch from String Frenzy!

Have a wonderful and safe Halloween, everyone!  May the count down to November 29th begin in earnest!

Im HOOKED. !

  27. Wishes do come true!!! I have so many blues and greens and wished and hoped that was what we would use. Thank you once again for all you do for us!!!

  28. My husband is a Texan and I miss seeing those blue bonnets as we don't go as much as we used to go since his parents are both passed. I definitely will be making this mystery quilt but will probably be after the first of the year since I am moving and am in the middle of backing up my sewing room. I love the colors, my favorites. I can't read with my poor eye sight the numbers on the color chips, except for two of them. So hopefully with the photo I can find them at Lowes. We had snow last night and roads are slick so I won't get there until late afternoon or evening. I have to take my Mom to the Dr. this morning so it will be a full day for me. But I am already ready to begin this mystery. Thanks again Bonnie for another one that looks like it will be a keeper just for those colors alone.

  32. Uh oh - I am in trouble now - with at least 3 BOM's in my sewing room still waiting to be finished and since I am new to all things Bonnie Hunter I didn't think I would be participating...
    And then first thing I do this a.m. is open up her blog, see that pic, and I am totally smitten :)
    Number one - blue is my go to color - always!
    Number two - my dream bucket list vacay is to meander on down to Texas from PA, hitting every quilt shop, junk shop and antique center I possibly can!
    Number three - "Magenta" has always been my fave Crayola color in the box since childhood...
    So here I come Lowes...
    And of course can't wait to hit all the yummy Lancaster area fabric stores ASAP :)

  45. So excited for mystery quilt season! Its snowing in Wisconsin this morning but I'm stopping at Lowes to get my paint cards before they're all out! Thanks for all you do, Bonnie. The mystery quilt during holiday season is something I always look forward to.

  46. Bonnie, I hate to admit it but I waited on Good Fortune to see what it would be before I began, taking away the mystery. But I have learned so much about color and piecing from you this year! Thank you. So in reality Frolic will be my FIRST real mystery ever. Thank you for teaching me to trust and face challenge. Now to get all of GF together and finished! Onward!

  51. Great colours. Every year I say to myself: Not this year. But every year I start your quilt at the end of November. And it is so much fun. Always. Thank you Bonnie. Greetings from Norway.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Love the colors and (forgive me) happy to see no orange, as it is one of those colors that I don't have much of. This will be a beautiful quilt, because you designed it, and it will probably stay with me because the colors are so my colors.
    Thanks, Bonnie!

    ReplyDelete
  53. Oh my.... I was going to watch and simply admire this year.... until I saw the colors! Have to agree with so many - these are gorgeous and pulled me right into the mystery!! Thank you Bonnie!

    ReplyDelete
  54. I was hoping for a masculine color scheme because I need a quilt to gift to my father in law, despite that, I'm just in love with what you've chosen! I do believe I may have to keep this quilt for myself.

    ReplyDelete
  55. Sometimes I see that fabric shops make a kit for the colors needed. Is anyone doing this for this quilt? I love the colors! Thank you!

  57. Well, I wasn’t going to even attempt the mystery this year, but since it’s based on my home and favorite flower...central Texas bluebonnets..I may have to stick my toes in.

  58. Being a lifelong Texas girl and I have Bluebonnets growing in my yard, I guess this quilt is for me.

  59. Beautiful colors. I was hoping for blues and greens and purple colors; fuscia and raspberry will do fine. I was hoping for no orange this year, too. Yeah!!! This is my third mystery quilt.

  61. Funny story, I had most of the color chips already. had chosen them from a neutral fabric that I had. Just have to trade out the brown for the fuchsia.

  62. THANK YOU once again Bonnie for the beginning of our Fall/Winter mystery quilt!

    I Love the colors, now to get out my Sherman Williams paint fans (I Just happen to have two years of them from when they built my house and the following year).

    I can't wait to get started!

    I wish I was going w/you to Bavaria, but family wants me back down in the Boise/Ontario region for Christmas.

    Have a wonderful, safe Halloween yourself!

  68. Okay, you visit me, I live in Texas, I visit you, I'm from Pa. (Johnsonburg) and have been to Lancaster several times visiting an uncle, cousins in Lititz and an aunt in Columbus. I also love junk and antique stores, the colors for this year's mystery, and have LOTS of UFO's!!! Sounds like we are a perfect match!

  69. I got my paint chips. I spend winter and early spring in Texas. Love the wildflowers. I agree with all colors except framboise. I see mostly Indian Paintbrush with the bluebonnets. They are more red. I will look at the raspberry see if I can find a more color match and use the framboise as only part of the reds. I have a panel of Texas wildflowers. I would like to incorporate it with this quilt.

  71. The colours are perfection! :) Also, your green, I have used that many times and may even still have some of that exact same fabric left!!!! Wildflowers from any country are beautiful and am pleased that they are your theme this year. From down under, I'll try to match with our natives - lots of similar colours.

  79. I am so excited! This will be my first Mystery! I love the colors, will be leaning more towards the raspberry shades for the Framboise. On my computer screen the Framboise paint chip looks like a mauve and that's not a color I care for but love your fabric choices. I need to learn more about color theory. So much to learn! Thank you Bonnie, I wish I could be with you on your Bavaria tour! Sounds awesome. Jan in MA

  82. Great color palette, but then I love the blues bestest, and I'm really looking forward to sharing this quilty experience with all of you. As a first time participant, and working from my stash only, I might have some trouble with the greens... mine in the yellow-green side of green spectrum tend to be medium to medium dark, and your choice looks to be more on the lighter side of medium. Will that work for what you've dreamed up for wildflower mystery? Excitement shared is even better
