As for progress pictures on Captain America, I've got the first set of borders attached now. Just the last set of borders after this, and the flimsy will be complete.

As I mentioned earlier, I am going to be participating in at least one and possibly two mystery quilts this summer. The first mystery quilt is being offered on the QTMysteryQuilts Yahoo group. Fabric requirements came out on July 3rd along with cutting instructions.The finished quilt will make a great size for a Project Linus quilt.
Below are the fabric choices that I've pulled from my stash for this first mystery. I noticed afterwards that each of the fabric choices I pulled have a summer or travel theme to them. Apparently, I am getting the itch for some travel.
Option 1: The main focus fabric you may recognize as the Cars fabric I ordered a couple of weeks ago. The white will be the background with the black as the accent and the dark gray with silver circles the border fabric. Aside from the Cars fabric, the other fabrics are all left over from Captain America.
|Option 1 - Cars Theme|
Option 2: A sweets and baked goods theme. The focus fabric has lots of tasty sweets on it and has me drooling just looking at it. The white will be the background with the brown as the accent and pink as the border.
|Option 2 - Sweets Theme|
|Elephant Caramel Apple - Disney's Animal Kingdom|
|Monkey Caramel Apple - Disney's Animal Kingdom|
|Hippo Marshmallow Pops - Disney's Animal Kingdom|
This is what Mr. Goofin' Off decided to get for his mid-morning snack. Everything else looked almost too sweet that early in the day.

Option 3: The last option I have chosen is fabric I've had in my stash for years. It's from a line of fabrics by Teresa Kogut. The focus fabric will be the bears all dressed up to enjoy their vacations. The white will be the background fabric. The blue (which is a bit darker than it appears in the picture) will be the accent fabric. The vacation accessories fabric (cameras, swim shorts, etc.) will be the border fabric.

I'd love to hear your thoughts. Do you have a favorite fabric option you'd like to see come to life in the mystery? I've got a few weeks to get the pieces cut out before the actual mystery begins.
The second mystery I will keep a mystery a bit longer. I'll pull some options for it later in the month.
