    Keep in mind this is my opinion. I guess a lot of us have done it wrong, using potential fussy cuts, including PaintMeJudy, our Leader for this group.

    ok, finished 120 half square triangles into 30 blocks for my 'Greatgrandaughter to be' crib quilt....now the Mommie-to-be will arrange them the way she wants them ....... and then the FMQ (well after the borders and such) see I have kept sewing even while waiting for the train to pull into the station....checking scheduale, drinking coffee.

    Oh Honchey ... a beautiful bunch, just as I suspected! Looks like you have enough fabrics to make two ... or three ... or four ... or more!!!! How about every block made with a different combo?

    SunliteNSmiles ... *pat* *pat* *pat* ... good girl, for tackling the PhD/fabric! Much better results, than if it'd been the PhD/man, don't you think?

    That is why I asked. I knew I would get an honest yet kind answer. TY QuiltE for 2nd confirmation. I do love this board. I'll have to wait again to start as I'm far from any quilt stores.

I was thinking of combining them in a way using all the fabrics with 2 focus and then opposite accents to create a larger quilt???
