    With that pattern, because each piece is already value-sorte, I say go for it. If you need to swap one or two along the way, so be it. It should be absolutely gorgeous when you're done grocery bag picking it!

    Just make sure you don't make any of your rows too long!

    I do that sometimes. However, I do cheat and not place two of the same color right next to eachother. So, I guess that's double dipping. I love the scrappy look (that's why the same fab can't touch)

    Hah, Amma. Thanks! That was hubby and our son last night - hubby grabbed the quilt after I took a picture of it, and they had a blast wrestling with each other. Cyrus (DS) figured out how to unroll himself... then rolled himself right back up and taunted Daddy to play some more.

    (Sorry to take over the thread... it's just so much fun sharing my guys!)

    I'm not sure I would be willing to try that. I lay mine out on the bed. I have to shut the door because my quilt inspector cats want to help. Just like the one in my avatar.
