    Gives me a little more time to get this step done. Rummaging thru the garage fabric store.

    So .... if you are wanting something larger, that's where you will make the decision, whether you need 2, or 4 or 6 etc.!
    Thanks, I think I get it now...just my dense brain at it again! Will wait till the next clue to decide how to go with the scrappies...I may have enough for 2 scrappies! They will probably be donation quilts anyway...the more the merrier, right?

    I love your fabrics, that will be a stunning quilt!

    Whitepine, I agree about sewing long stripes and keeping that scant 1/4". While I do have a quarter inch foot I also adjust it as far to the right as it allows. But I am reminded of a lesson years ago and I think it was Eleanor Burns that taught when sewing stripes never go beyond 18"in length and you'll be more accurate. I was short on my stripes too as I was using scrapes for some of my fabrics. But it all comes out in the end and that is the goal! lol

    Hugs,

    Greetings everyone!!! I'm not the only one getting anxious, I see. Thinking of lots of combinations that I could do once we know what it looks like. Can you tell I just found the color button. I'm learning more things every day. WOW!!! Daughter would be so impressed.

    Have a GREAT DAY -
