    I think your bun and your bum are well balanced. The turban does look a little top-heavy from this angle.

    It isn't written, just understood. We are, after all, fabriholics, aren't we. Therefore we MUST shop. :!:

    :shock: :shock: :shock: I've never bought Fairy Frost -- just admired it. It melted? I may need to rethink this, because I always iron my pieces. Well, I love batiks, so that's probably what I'll do.

    Yippee...another book will be arriving! In the book, she says that you needed limit it to batiks, she didn't. She used a mix of fabrics that she said she had...must have a better stash than I do.

    I don't understand. She says to limit it to batiks, but she didn't do that herself? Why would she say that, then not do it?

    Patti, where in the book did she say that? In my book, page 7 it said:

    FABRIC SELECTION--For this quilt, it is essential to have a large variety of 100% cotton fabric scraps in different colors and values...

    This quilt might appear to be made mostly with hand-dyes and batiks, but in actual fact, it also has many different kinds of commercial fabrics...Using a variety of fabrics gives more depth to a diesign and makes a quilt seem more vibrant and alive. I find that it is best to use tightly woven fabrics, SUCH AS batiks, because they are less likely to fray than looser weaves. (The emphasis is mine)

    And Ducky, I have Fairy Frost, and it has never melted for me. The coppery color in my Autumn Bargello is Fairy Frost. So Elle, maybe you got a bad batch. Or maybe your iron was set too high. I have noticed that with different of my metallic fabrics I need to have a cooler iron.

    I received notice from Amazon that my book was shipped on 2/5. I hope it comes this week. I loved the colors in the pictures that LaceLady posted and I will probably use similar colors in my quilt.

    Lace's colors really are pretty, aren't they? I should get my book from Amazon soon, also.....I guess I'll wait until then to decide on fabrics.

    :-P I am so excited about AOTH that I have to discipline myself to finish the quilt I am working on for my youngest GD. Her birthday is March 1 so I am feeling the pressure. Then my youngest GS has a birthday on June 30 and I want to make him a quilt out of all of his old T-shirts. I made one for his brother and he loves it. I'm always working on 1 quilt & planning the next one. Makes life more enjoyable.

    I think we all do that. When I finish DJ I have AOTH planned already and I am already thinking of another I really like too

    Welcome to the newcomers, I have been out all day and just checking in. Thank you too for the nice comments - when you have your books, you will be able to see what Aie used, and it will make a lot more sense.

    I have already used some fabrics other than batiks in those blocks I posted, because the colours fitted in with those. I don't see a problem with that, I have appliqued ordinary cottons lots of times, and none of them have ever fallen apart (well, so far, that is). I still say that you can use up loads of scraps in this quilt.

    And Ducky you look fine, though I'm not convinced that is your best side.

    K White, lovely to see you here, and I agree with you, it was great that Rachel came visiting.

    My AOTH book arrived today and the pictures are gorgeous. I have so much fabric that I will try to use a lot of it but I always end up buying more fabric. My GD will be 20 years old on March 1 and she's a sweetie. She wants me to teach her how to quilt. She still lives in Miami so we are trying to plan a time when we can have a quilting workshop at my house in Sebring.

    Well, I was hoping my book would arrive today, but no such luck, I guess it'll be tomorrow, but I am leaving on a ski trip, so will have to wait to check it out when I get back.

    Regarding the issue with fairy frost, I have bought some recently, haven't used it yet, but did wash it and press it and it was fine, nothing changed with it. I wonder what happened with yours, Elle, how sad, I know it is not cheap!

    How fun! It seems like more people are joining! I am working on finishing all my planned projects before we start this.

    Oh, that's so nice about your granddaughter. That's what I really hope happens with my granddaughter, but she's only 2 1/2 right now.

    Oh...so sorry...I had a little typo...I didn't mean "needed" to limit to batiks..I meant to say "need not" limit it.

    I found my background today...(I think, although its a long time to go without changing my mind). Its a green- dark olive..but not one that I see frequently. I bought all she had left- 8 1/2 yrds and hope that will be enough!

    Here it is with a few of the other colors I plan to use. I'll be pulling more, but at this point...its a start..

    new background
