    Like you choices, Rosemary. Although I'm not good at picking fabric myself, I know what I like in other's choices, and I like yours.

    I made a humongous pot of venison stew and cornbread. It's in the club car -- enjoy.

    UGH... ever have one of those days! I just made all my 4 patch blocks, for both quilts.... but didn't pay close attention. I sewed the light and medium colors together! So now what do I do, take them apart and hope I have enough fabric to finish or just buy more fabric! UGH... I am sure there is something I can make with 48 3 1/2 blocks half pinks half blues... Back to the drawing board for me~

    Oh Mary so sorry. That's a lot of work. Maybe you can still make the quilt just switch the med. and dark. How about it Judy??? will that work?

    I have a couple similar type fabrics that remind me of stuffed olives. Now they may start making me think of eyeballs!

    I finished my 4-patch blocks. I think this is going to turn out really pretty.

    Yes, many of those kinds of days... more and more the older I get! Do NOT change your 4-patches. Judy let me switch my light and dark fabrics, so that may be an option for you. Lets see what Judy says. Another option is to find a different "medium" fabric that will be somewhere between the two in your 4-patches. Why don't you post a pix of the 4-patches you have made? I'm going to try to scroll back to see your three fabrics...

    I totally agree... waiting is torture! LOL I loved the fast and furious mystery we had just before Christmas and I hope Judy will do more like that. I like your 4-patches and all those that have been posted. There are going to be some great quilts when this is over.

    marytodd I really feel for you, hate when things like this happen. The only thing I can think of is either wait and see what happens in the next couple weeks, or take them apart. But you are using flannel, I think. And ripping flannel will end up with a lot of your blocks out of shape. Flannel does not like to be ripped apart. You'd have to snip each thread, gently remove the stitch and then what about all those little threads? I'm sorry to say but if it was my fabric and blocks, I would start over.

    One suggestion was to use these with a different 3rd fabric, but weren't you planning on making a boy and a girl quilt?
