    No problem.I'm a "washer". I put "color catchers" on the shopping list this evening too. We usually wash most things in cold, so if I keep it, it's not a problem. If I give it away, I'll tell the person who gets it so they don't pull a weird multicolored ball out of the dryer.



    I think I like the D9 better than the turning 20.... I found this one on craftsy.... thoughts?

    Am I just getting too complex?
    That one would be a lot of bias work. I think I like the idea of the DP3 with that yellow in the little blocks.

    I love those fabrics. I think they will go together no matter the pattern. Good Luck

    Yellow Brick road would be another nice pattern and the yellow would actually pull the quilt together; it is not a free pattern and $7.00 is the least expensive one that I can find!



    tried to post photo - didn't work of course! LOL!

    Try pulling the top left fabric (dark red/maroon) away from the mix and see what it does for you.

    I could see some pretty pinwheels, but I am a very novice quilter myself. I would not include the yellow either. I'll be anxious to see what you come up with.

    Check out the Morning Star 2 pattern on quilterscache.com. This would be beautiful.

    With only a meter total, each of these is smaller than a fat quarter, right? You will not get even a generous lap quilt out of them without adding quite a bit of fabric. I think they will benefit from having one or two solid or mottled blender fabrics mixed in that will help to unify the quilt. If you like a modern look, a shadow box quilt would work well with the entire group (except maybe the intense yellow), using at least 2 blocks from each fabric, a dark gray or black for the shadows and an off white, beige or other very light color for the background. I found a post on this board that shows the basics of the design, but I think usually rectangles look better to me in this design than squares: Shadow box quilt - how big to make the squares and shadow? The first comment has a link to one that was done in rectangles. Have fun creating!

    I'm editing to add a link to a video that shows one with mixed sizes, and also explains the process: http://vimeo.com/54613518
