Mystery Quilt and Monochromatic Challenge

Thought I'd share a mystery quilt I did from last year.  The mystery was put on by the mystery quilt group list.  And I love how these mystery's they put on turn out.  Anxiously looking forward for this years mystery to start but as to date, I have not heard of when that will be.  Regardless, I still have to quilt this last year's one and it's on my UFO list for this year.  I am keeping this one for my own bed and will be painting my master bedroom to
match this quilt.  Since my bedroom is not yet renovated it will be fun to bring it all together.
When I decided to do the Monochromatic Challenges our first color for January was Yellow.  So I designed this bed runner to go with my quilt above. 

 I am still looking for the right background fabric.  
Friday I found one online that I would love to use, but it does have some blue in it.
Being online, I have no way of telling if the blue will match my quilt or not.    So now I'm debating as to whether or not order it and do the runner in a slightly not so monochromatic or to  go totally monochromatic and continue my search for a gray/white marble effect.

  1. Very pretty blues in that mystery. I did a mystery quilt last year for the first time and loved it--from Judy's Patchwork Times--and it is on my UFO list too this year. Good luck finding just the right fabric. Sometimes that can be so frustrating when you KNOW just what you want but can't find it!
