I can’t give away the mystery, but I want to give you some fabric pointers.

The supplies listed are minimum fabric requirements.
Here are some helpful hints for selecting your fabric.

Teal and Green have to work together well as they are used in close proximity.  Choose fabrics with some contrast, but not on opposite ends of the value spectrum.  One or both of the colors can be a print.

Purple Accent is a dark value

Light and Bright have to work together well as they are used in close proximity.  Choose fabrics with some contrast, but not on opposite ends of the value spectrum.  One or both of the colors can be a print.

Background fabric can be light or dark, but all other colors have to contrast with the background.

Welcome to my Quilt Along - introduction

Welcome to our first Quilt Along! Join the fun and l et me teach you how to make my quilt:  Spinning Wheels.   See how easy it is to make a curved quilt all while sewing straight seams using Peeled-Back Patchwork. I designed the Quilt Along so we can work on a different part of the quilt every day.  I have allowed time for everyone to catch up before I post the next step.   Best of all you can use your scraps .   The majority of the pieces needed are 2-1/2" squares, which you may have already cut or you can easily cut from pre-cuts;  strips, charms, and even 10" squares.
