I wish I could have recorded the expression on my son's face and his reaction when I told him what this year's colors were. He went with me to the store to get our paint cards. He LOVES to sort our scraps by color. This adds a whole new level of fun for him. Here he is working on the yellows this weekend:
After he inspects them to see if they are a "go" or a "no go" he puts them in the bins. Then I iron them and sort them by size. I LOVE to use the smallest of pieces (2" square) and use them first. That way I use my scraps AND get a huge variety in the mystery quilt.
We were able to get all of the paint color cards except for the grey. I got the one next to it. I found a piece of grey in my stash that will work. Woop woop! An ALL STASH quilt!
