    I am joining, but I am not home so might have to wait on the fabric selection, unless I get a chance to shop here in Washington. I bring a full suitcase for Granddaughter and Daughter, soooooo I can fill er up for me! Oh now I want to go shop!

    It is a little bit wetter (Ok a lot wetter here) but if I lived here I would be sewing a lot more! Which I don't know how I would do that since I already sew a lot!

    I am going to make a great Chicken Gumbo soup today, to keep everyone warm and on task! Will be home next Monday and play catch up!

    So far both of my Mystery quilts have turned into baby quilts, this one will be for me, or my daughter. I might have to take her shopping and pick out some colors.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Fabric Update

    Fabric A remains the same because I have 12 yards of it and want to use it up, it will be the backing also
    Fabric B will be of the same color but will be shopping for fabric of the same color tone, don't like the solid and it is a sheet I was going to use as backing for another quilt so it is standing in for a color choice
    Fabric C is a keeper, meets the yardage requirement
    Fabric D will need to be replaced with something similar as I do not have enough of it
    Fabric E I found in the stash, it is a very pale pink paisley and contrasts nicely with F
    Fabric F is a keeper also, I love the charcoal black feathery texture

    The colors are not quite true in the pics but close enough. Comments welcome, of course. I will be ready for the Saturday morning train excursion. Now off to finish sewing borders on another top.

    I'm not sure if there is enough contrast in my choices. Aslo, they are turned around -
    my fabric should probably go b-a/d-c the bottom is brown for e and the top is white for f (or vice versa)

    Here's my choices

    Well, here's my choices. From what I'm gathering from the posts, it looks like I have a good choice. Judy, if you think differently, please advice.

    CAROLINE S - looks good!!

    CHESTER - looks good, also!

    CINDY - I love your red and white fabrics but I have the same concerns here as with Everose, all that white, but don't see how to change it, unless you use white with the white stripe as C-D combo, and red stripe as one of the E or F choices. Take into consideration that stripes are hard to deal with, making sure they are cut on the line to have the pattern appear straight, and also do you care if the stripes don't go in the same direction?

    Judy, thanks for the suggestion, I wasn't really crazy for this combo the way it was, but wasn't sure how to fix it!

    Judy, thank you...it's a GO for my granddaughter's quilt. But, reading this...should I put the E (pink) for D & move D (rickrack) for E? It really would bother me if the rickrack was all haywire.

    Vicki, If you use a stripe or rickrack in a quilt, it will not be even and all going in the same direction. Sorry.

    Cindy I am RED with envy. I wanted my next quilt to be a red white quilt but hadnt purchased all my fabrics yet just two and not 1.3 yards. I was sort of hoping to hear 1.25 might work for D or some good news like that. I have one could be set, two almost sets with four differrent fabrics I guess I go back through the bins all two of them, pull anything 1.3 yrds or bigger put t on the table and see if something pops out at me. I am fortunate for the gift fabrics I receive but they are usually left overs from quilts etc. I have a TON of red/white polka dots. However they are the cut outs say from someone who made mass little girl dresses ? its the neck cut out portion of fabric but easily three yards worth if you could tape it all together... but no bigger than two hands worth at a time. so without knowing if something like this can work it goes back in the bin. I will be sew happy to watch your quilt play out. I think what the heck if I cant do it I can enjoy it from afar.
    Jaba love your combo, the Christmas colors in the quilt on this page are great oh so many of them are great. I am struggling with this huge contrast but have faith that it is going to work. It sounds like its in small enough pops as there is less of the fabric than the rest or its a frame? (clues come on everyone who is good at this .. clues for the clueless?)

    I have an 18" zuccinni staring at me. I think its zuccinni pancakes tonight what the heck, and the other 16 " will have to wait til tomorrow unless anyone wants some? little s/p and a dollop of sour cream they are pretty darned good all crispy.. here train riders over here! maybe if enough join me in this little treat I can use oh another 2". Last week I made two HUGE loafs with cream cheese frosting and it was only a 12" zuccini. sigh. that is one huge zuccinni. spell check. I am tired just staring at it. saw a recipe today in foodtv mag it was for mac and cheese. It had 8 or 9 cups of cheese in it. IS THAT REAL? never made it from scratch but that seems like well a ton of cheese.. bet its good but 8-9 cups.. if its non calorie and I make it can I serve that here or only sweets? let me know hate to bring the wrong thing.
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.
