    I haven't picked my fabrics yet, though hope to do that later today ... if not on the weekend for sure!

    Clarification please ... you mentioned 3-1/2" strips could be held off in cutting.
    In the original instructions you cut 3-1/4" strips from A ...... so I'm thinking this is one and the same ... and should these trips be 3-1/4" or 3-1/2"???

    For those of us who have already cut, and those to follow ... what is the correct measurement?
    Please? and Thanks!

    I'm in with red, black and white

    Well, I said that I was going to use this to expand my color horizons, but I guess I'm not, unless I try to do two! I'm going with my favorite red, black and white. What do you think?

    If the photo comes up properly, the A fabric (buttons) is on the left, and the F fabric (red with stitching and needles) is on the right.

    Good combo but how about adding a white background with small black print for a little more contrast? When I take my glasses off (do it all the time to see how fabrics work together LOL) the first three blend together.

    I already have 3 quilts in progress, but this is too good to pass up! I just retired yesterday, so I should have time to do 4 quilts, right? Off to look through my stash for fabric!
