    oh oh oh!!!! one I can answer!!! you iron your fabric to freezer paper then trim to size before you put it through your printer. (see i can be taught!! i'm so proud!! LOL) I love your ideas...and simply can't wait to see the project...please consider taking pics in steps so we can enjoy the whole thing unfold.

    Does this count as the first step?? Piles of maybe fabrics?? :D

    Reds--barns. Dark greens-pine trees. Light greens-grass. Blues-skies. Plaids-- barn and silo roofs. Yellow--for spots of bright bright sunshine. Jeepers--what was I thinking? That is blinding. 8) See the two blue/green ones for blending? I have a lot of batiks added to my stash lately--but hadn't considered it before it was suggested here. I'll have to peek through those.....

    I'll take any and all suggestions. I had planned to take the grass to the first bottom branches of each tree--do you think that will look okay?

    This is a gorgeous quilt! I love barns to, though it is to admire, not clean out :oops: :lol: .

    Sorry I can't add any advice but I am eager to watch it's progress!

    So now we all have fabric envy! (even if I do own several of the same fabrics!) You've chosen well!
    Be sure to post your work as it progresses. I (and I'm sure others) love to watch a quilt project come together.
    You have some fun now!
