    I put the yardages in the caption box portion of the images. I thought that would be easier.

    But, now that I think of it, it might be easier if you saw them next to the list now that I think of it.

    :wink:

    It would be easier for me (I am dense) to have the yardage next to the colors on the list. Thanks. Some you listed at 5 1/2 yards - sounds like alot for a lap quilt.

    Well, the ones at 5 1/2 yards are used throughout the quilt.

    I added two borders to it to make it a lap quilt and the thing came out to 53" x 53". It originally was 37" x 37" as a wall hanging.

    It does sound like a lot to me too. The quilt program counted and calculated it. Without the two borders I added, it takes 2 1/8 yards of that fabric.

    I don't want anyone to spend a fortune on it -- especially for something you haven't seen. I know you've all got projects you want to invest in.

    I'm going to make it up as a mystery quilt anyway, post the clues and pics and you can all watch, and if you like it, you've got the pattern and the the yardages and can join in. It'll still be fun.

    :D

    I think what is confusing is the blue you say 4.25 and the green 5.5 yds??? Is it at all possible to list the yardages with the fabric and not under the pictures. I really want to do this but am so confused by all the pics of fabric. If the big amount of yardage is for border you could tell us how much if we don't use that fabric for border?

    I'll list the yardages again in a list. I'll do that tomorrow night some time. I have an early job tomorrow and then I'll be sewing all afternoon and will be back on line tomorrow night.

    If you think the cost is to hight then just make a small wall hanging or table runner with the same idea you had.

    You could also do mystery blocks each month in scrappy fabrics.

    There's a reason the blue fabric is more than the green fabric and that's because I use red and greens in the traditional and really only use a bunch of blues and silvers in the winter one.

    I'll put together a comprehensive list with the yardages for you. I'll post it soon.

    Bebe had a good idea.

    Yardages:

    Outdoors Winter Version:


    1) 1/8 Yard med/light brown.

    2) 1 Yard medium blue snowflake pattern. (ex. Hoffman's Snowflake Escape/Sky Blue/Silver Metallic.)

    3) 1/2 Yard medium blue (ex. Hoffman's Venetian Holiday - Dainty Poinsettias - Chambray Blue/Pearl.)

    4) 1/3 Yard dark blue snowflake pattern (ex. Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Snowflake Rapture - Cobalt/Silver.)

    5) 3/8 Yard medium to dark blue (ex. Hoffman's Winter Radiance - Reindeer Stroll - French Blue/Silver.)

    6) 1/3 Yard dark blue snowflake blue (ex. Pom Pom Penguines by Bonijean for South Seas Fabrics.)

    7) 1/4 Yard dark blue snowflake pattern (ex. In the Beginning's Jason Yenter Wintergraphix.)

    8 ) 1/3 Yard light blue snowflake pattern (ex. Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Snowflake Rapture - Powder Blue/Pearlized.)

    9) 1/4 Yard light blue to silver (ex. Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Star Filigree.)

    10) 1 Yard light blue star fabric (ex. Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Twinkling Skies - French Blue/Silver.)

    11) 3/8 Yard light to medium silver star fabric (ex. Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Twinkling Skies, pewter/grey/silver.)

    12) 3/8 Yard dark blue winter themed fabric (ex. Hoffman's Winter Radiance - Reindeer Stroll - Midnight Blue/Silver.)

    13) 5 1/2 Yards dark blue star themed fabric (ex. Hoffman's Weekend in the Woods - Twinkling Skies - Cobalt/Silver.)

    There is going to be an optional applique part that will also require medium to dark blue. It should be a water color or textured fabric rather than print. You'll need roughly 1/2 yard if you choose to make it. It should be strictly blue with no green or purple tints. (We can also mix and match the left overs from the other blues in the list rather than introduce another fabric. That's the goal.)

    You'll need a tiny bit of your white fabric (less than a fat quarter) for it.

    When everyone has gone through their fabrics and selected their 13 fabrics, it will be important to follow the guidelines to keep with the yardages.

    There's a good bit of paper piecing in this design to keep in mind. I tend to be wasteful when I paper piece.

    I'm strictly using the example fabrics I posted for the clues. If you substitute them, make sure you treat the substitute fabric as if it's the actual fabric option I posted to keep the yardages accurate.

    That just means when you see me use the Jason Yenter Wintergraphix sample, use the fabric you substituted for it and you don't use one of the other substitutes or the yardages will be affected.

    When everybody has gone through their fabric stash and made their selections, let me know and I'll post the first clue. Just let me know when you're all ready.

    I'll be back on line late tonight.
