I think I got most of this figured out.......I think.
I decided to ditch the batik. I think I'll go with the marble fabrics Sue (I think it was Sue) posted on here. I found one that I feel will work. The only problem is part of me is thinking "Its not that 'blood red' Deni likes. Its too much of a bright red."
Probably won't go for that rich black Amish fabric I found, unless someone here thinks it'd be worth getting that over plain ol' black fabric.
Now all that's left to figure out is the templates and how much fabric I need. I really hate to ask, but would anyone with EQ want to make templates for the blocks I have (just three---the half pinwheel thing, a pinwheel, and a Virginia Reel). Need 10" blocks. I'd do it myself if I had EQ and I don't trust myself making them on graph paper---knowing me I'll probably get the sizes wrong, forget the seam allowances, mess up an angle on a triangle, or screw up somewhere. I'm just not good at figuring out the sizes of the actual pieces. :( Everything else I can figure out...just not how big the pieces have to be.
