    Okay, Judy, one question...(raises hand in air and bouncing in seat)😄

    I am not used to working in color groups. I am planning to make 30 blocks. Does it matter what colors in my group of three are where? Can color A be color B in another block?

    Thanks so much! Out of my comfort zone and loving it!

    Oh no I didn't mean to start a panic. Everyone sit back with your chocolate and relax. It will be OK.

    My hubby actually likes those awful licorice ones. I like the sour ones or the buttered popcorn, Jelly Bellys, yay!

    Glad to see you out what you call your comfort zone. You go, girl!
    As to where you use your colors -- I planned this as a controlled scrappy with the 3 similar colors in a unit going together. It seems to have more cohesion and less confusion this way, but you can do anything you want, all I ask if that the places where I say specific amounts per color as in B and C be kept this way or it will be sort of a mish mash if you do all an uncontrolled color placement. But Yes, color A can definately be color B in another block as long as you are still keeping the color wheel colors more or less together. For example, in the quilt I made my friend I made 3 blocks from the red family, which would be 9 different reds if all different, but I had 6 (some dark pink, a maroon, a light red, etc, you get the idea) and usisng them in different positions made it work out fine. Hopefully I haven't confused you more!

    Oh no, I'm with you, okay, thanks. May I say, I'm so glad I switched my fabrics out this morning? This is exciting!
