    Gosh, picking out the fabrics for a quilt is usually my favorite part, but this task has been daunting! BUT this is how it's going to go...no more changes. :roll:

    I have over half the strips cut, then discovered one batik was short--35" rather than 40-42". I didn't want that to cause troubles later, so I took about seven fabrics to a Mennonite shop this morning and found three more that had possibilities... I used two here.

    I did cut one fabric the opposite direction--NOT selvege to selvege because of the print. I'll be careful--and batiks don't seem to stretch the way normal kinds of cottons do.

    I still have a lot of cutting to do... but some day I'll be back with some photos of this done! :thumbup:

    These are not normally my colors (oranges/rust) but I really love them in this combination! I think this is going to be an absolutely stunning quilt! Best of luck on this project! I am nowhere near brave enough to attempt a bargello.

    Thanks. It was so funny (well, funny now, frustrating at the time) every time I looked at the fabrics through the camera I'd see something that stopped the flow, so more changes were made. Then out came the camera again...and one more adjustment was made--and then it flowed for me. Good enough!!!

    I don't know, Chris, I may regret this. :lol:
