    might be easier to follow Jenny's blog posts (http://www.quiltingboard.com/blogs/jenniky-24751.html) where all the QAYG stuff has been collected in one place.

    This is a photo of some of my orphan blocks. My daughter walked by the board the other day and literally yelled, "This is MY quilt!" She wants to redo her bedroom in black/white/red with just a touch of turquoise. These are all the orphans, but I have more of the same fabrics in my scraps, but am thinking about incorporating more blk/white/red prints and I am also trying to decide how to add the turquoise. Any suggestions?

    Since you have to make plenty of other blocks and partial blocks yet, you can easily add in the turquoise with those. I only see 4 whole blocks with no turquoise, so if you make at least that many, or maybe one more or one less blocks that are mostly turquoise with only black, that will balance out the 4 without turquoise. The rest can be a blend of all sorts like the partials you already have there. I think this will be a stunning quilt when you are finished!
    I think I would, IMHO, find a fabric for the turq. like the red, and stick with that, using it as sparsely as the red overall. But would like to see some blocks with strips of both red and turq. in them. I think I would use one of the black fabrics for the QAYG strips rather than the red or turq.

    I found another stack of orphans and some strips I had made out of the black/white/red, so I am busy making additional blocks. I still haven't decided on a final setting, maybe the large HSTs as borders around the crazy log cabins. I like the thin turquoise between the HSTs, may add a flange or thin turquoise border around the log cabin center.

    Wildyard, I like your idea of adding just a touch of the turquoise in some of the crazy blocks, going to go make some right now.

    Very neat use of the colors.
