I am gearing up to do my first mystery from Bonnie Hunter (http://www.quiltville.com/). I have been sorting my fabrics since the colors were given awhile back. Now that the yardage estimate has been given I am about ready. I have decided to do the same color way that was given. I figure for my first time it would probably be the easiest. So far I have just pulled yardage, I am going to wait until the first instructions are given to pull from my strips as far as neutrals and any of the colors go. I figure I will get some of the fabrics I need from my strip bins but what is the point of destroying the quilt room before the need arises. I did order a "red" as a constant that I hope will work, it is actually more of a deep red I think. Will know when it arrives, if not I will have to rethink my options and shop my stash, since I am on No Buy status with http://www.stashbusters.com/ (more on that at a later date).
