    I have redone the excel spreadsheet that Klue posted for trip around the world color layout. I have checked three time I hope there are no mistakes. I hope this will help anyone that is doing their color layout in trip around the world.

    a quarter of a FQ will make 2 blocks or 1 block and 1 triangle.

    so you can get 8 blocks from a FQ or a mix of a few blocks and a few triangles.

    I bought a charm pack of all the fossil ferns to make sure I liked the fabrics before I bought them. Good thing, too - the red that I picked was way darker in person.

    Here's a pic of the colors I'll be using:
    i love fossil ferns - this will look awesome!

    shame it will take a while for the fabric to show up but at least it will be in time for the kickoff - the official start date is jan 4th 2010.

    I will start as a delinquent. I gave very specific info to get software for Christmas gift. No one took notice of my not so subtle hints. So I had to order it myself. Now I have to wait for it to come in.

    But I do have fabric! (and a clean sewing room)
    thats a great start

    Vicki, I love the fossil ferns. Your Fossil Jane will be gorgeous. I purchased some for a memory quilt.

    Isn't this exciting.

    if you're going to be doing the trip around the world layout it tells you exactly which blocks fall into which section so you'll always know which color fabric to use.

    since we're not doing the blocks in order across each row its easy to get lost and forget which color fabrics to use on which block in each section.

    now you'll know.

    then you can enter that you did it and it will tally how many blocks you've made and how many pieces of fabric have be used to make the quilt.

    like jane's quilt label says exactly how many pieces of fabric she used and a lot of people like to continue with that tradition.

    Thanks Klue, My DH is calling my quilt Kim's Million Dollar DJ Quilt! He thinks it is costing too much! I need some civil war F4 and was trying to decide how many I was going to need. I think I will add up the cost of his last jeeping weekend before I go shopping I can spend at least that much :-D

    Wow this is really getting exciting. I have spent a good part of the day trying to get my room ready. Fabrics are washed and ready. Now for the room. Seems like it is never clean.
    I just love the Storm at Sea Blue it will go perfectly in my bedroom I have all blue and white in there.

    Bearpaw the fossil ferns are just gorgeous I would be pacing the floor waiting for those.

    Bearpaw, I love, love love your fabric choices. I agree with the post that said it will be richly colored...those types of batiks come out so pretty into quilts.

    have you named your work in progress yet? A few of us have done so...

    Kelly, thanks for all your info. I kinda knew all that. What someone needs to tell me is how to get that thing out of this computer. What buttons to push and what to look for. Your talking to a complete idiot here when it comes to computers!

    Oh, BTW, My name is 'Columbia River Jane'. How's that? Has nothing to do with my DJ but it locates me.

    Ladies just be thankful those DH are there to complain. My DH told me if I came home with another piece of material he would divorce me. Quite a strong threat. Well 58 years and he didn't.

    I mentioned to hubby about organising something with my LQS to get the fabric I need for this and he said "don't be silly, just buy it". So I mentioned just how much the fabric will cost and after he finished choking and his face lost that purple shade, he muttered quietly something about it being a good idea to talk to the quilt shop and organise something. LOL
