    It's exactly right! No problem you're perfect with what you've done and get those that you threw out right now. When you're done you can look at it and see different quilts you've made or swaps you're in, I love them per year for the memories. That's odd for me I know because everything usually has to match or I go crazy. These are just waaayyyyy different for me and I have no clue why.. I'm already looking at these squares and thinking of the quilts that they were in or table runners , or whatever. Oops not table runners, haven't looked at those scraps yet.

    sustraley and elisa, very pretty 9-patches! I like all of them.

    As to the questions about colors for A and B, wait until Saturday, see what you are going to do with them, and decide then. You will know what to do. And Elisa, no smacking allowed, even if you ask nicely. And I must say I congratulate you on going scrappy and not trying to be matchy matchy.

    Linda/Brat, I love them! they are "Scrappy! so relax and enjoy the ride! and if you don't like it when you are done, Donate it! I am done with my 12 blocks... and now I suppose you want pictures! Sheesh... I really do have to go and re-read the instructions again, I still need some 2.5 by 4.5 rectangles?

    I think I am going to go find a cuppa coffee with Irish Cream... I need something warm~ and coffee will work as I plan on sewing for hours, first day I have felt like sewing going to take advantage of it!

    Sue, I love your blocks, they are really nice and scrappy! I like them all, I would do a solid scrappy quilt! Oh wait I am doing one! it is one of the work a little on it and then put it away kinda quilts. I am going to make it big enough to cover the whole living room! OK it just seems like that I have been working on it so long!

    I love riding the train, I take it to my Son's all the time, I don't have to drive, worry about where I am going to park when I get there and I can read the whole way!

    Once I took a train from Ohio to California with a 15 month old. When we got on the train he could take two steps then fall down... When we got to California he could run from one end of the car to the other! I think he was able to balance better. I don't know why just know he never slowed down until he hit 30! We went coach, but I really remember meeting all the nicest people. There was even a lady on the train that was quilting with a tiny hoop and stitching by hand. She was so nice, ended up being my Son's Adopted Grandmother, we stayed in touch for a few years, always wanted to find her again. Her name was Phyllis and she was from Cuyahoga Falls.
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Didn't you feel my smack yet? That is the idea.....it doesn't match at all. If you want mine you best go back and look again....nada, nil, nothing matches......It just looks different because you've never sewn with it before. I just put them all in a big bag, shake it like crazy, dump it out and stir it around, put it beside my sewing machine and just grab, sew, grab, sew! What you see is what you get....go ahead "brat" it will keep you warm and snuggly.

    I see a couple of Janiacs on here with me !!! I am almost done with my blocks--- about 8 squares and one tri and one corner left. It has been a long process but am looking forward to sewing everything together. Had Christmas with my kids and grandkids today so have not started putting my squares together-- but at least I cut my scraps into squares as I go along so I have that part done already !!! Looking forward to clue #2

    ok no smacking on this train. yes mom.

    I am going with it. I will survive to live another quilt. I will finish this one also because I chose to start it and it did make a dent in my fabrics lol. I actually think Jan that since most of these are NOT my scraps maybe that made a difference? I didnt purchase but maybe three of the fabrics in them. The rest were someone elses dont need that anymore scraps. probably makes a difference I think. I found three fabrics out of all of them that I would purchase. two were my scraps lol. I have made a lot of things out of fabrics gifted so not complaining and this will probably come out ok. I do love uncontrolled scrappy. I am just outta my comfort zone thats all. Ms conformity here. Lady at dialysis wore this tie die looked like grateful dead sweatshirt in bold bright colors. faded jeans with a pale pink lace onthe side and no idea what costume party she was attending (she wasnt she manages the place yikes) but I was in whoa THAT does NOT match stressdome watching her flit around. I wanted to change up something and change it up fast. that is just me. my socks match my shirt if they are not pant colored. and only cause we sit in ourchairs with our feet up for hours do I wear those crazy socks ..they were gifts and are fluffy as all heck with fur collars. egad. well if someone is stuck staring at your feet might as well dress them up in fluff. so.. the brat is a failure with relaxing and just ..going with the pick and pull flow. I am suprised seriously .. learn something about yourself every day if you reach far enough.

    Brat, are a first born child? You sound like my oldest daughter. I deliberately made one side of her b'day quilt scrappy and guess what? She loves it. She may like the organized side better, but it has appliqued flowers so I don't blame her.
