    I tried needleturning fairy frost fabric last night. Even though it adds a nice difference in texture, it's harder to work with than the batiks, so I won't be using them. So, I went to the Connecting Threads site because someone (I'm sorry I can't remember who) said they have new batiks. Gosh darn it, I just had to order more colors. It's funny because I thought I have soooooo many batiks, but since I've started this project, I found that I need a wider variety of colors.

    Any excuse to buy more batiks is a good excuse. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    Thanks for the note about fairy frost. I was going to start appliquing (not sure how to spell that word) some blocks for a row robin with fairy frost. Your note comes in timely. I won't even waste my time. I was wondering how it would be to work with. Guess I'll search for something else to use. Thanks.

    Anxiously waiting for my book to arrive, in the meantime, went shopping for fabrics and share those fabric colors in the attached picture. I would appreciate any input on my color choices. I plan on making 10" blocks using Navy Blue for the background and using batiks for the design portions. Hand applique is my preference in assembling the top.

    Thanks to all those who have helped me today, learning how to get this far on the AOTH section of quilt board with posting, etc.,

    Hi Donna, Those are beautiful gorgeous colours that will be stunning.

    With a navy blue background those will pop.

    Beautiful array of colours Donna. Just collecting my fabrics now, and you have selected my perfect choice.

    Beautiful fabrics, Donna. I am also using dark blue background and all those colors will be magnificent.

    Yummy, scrummy (British for yummy - not crummy! :-) )

    Donna, one thing I have learned from these ladies is a whole new vocabulary. My favorite is "squiffy." I'll let Elle (she's a British ex-Pat living in Spain in a very beautiful village not too far from the Mediterranean) or Lesley (a transplanted UKer living in the northwest coastal region of Ireland) give you a definition. Both of these ladies SHOULD be sleeping now as it's nearly 1:00 am in Ireland & 2:00 am in Spain.

    That is going to make for a really lovely quilt. I am amazed at how wonderful navy is looking with the batiks. I had tried it out years ago for something, & everything just died against it. Now, these batiks stand up and shout," Hey, look at ME!" I love it.

    Thanks for all your help,- I consider your approval of my choice of colors valuable, so lets see what happens. Elle was instrumental in my joining this group, Lesley, Candi and yourself have been really a big help to me, and I consider you along with this quilt board as my new quilting friends. Happy Quilting to everyone. I love it here!!!

    Donna...my mouth is watering looking at your batik haul! Gorgeous and will look fabulous on the navy!

    Judy, I'm doing mine on point also, but doing the 7" in the center (so that it will cover only the top of my bed), then the outer border of blocks will be 10.5"..they will seem HUGE after working on the 7's! I played in EQ for mine too.

    Diane....great..great..great...1!!!!!!! I'm so happy you are playing!

    I am going to have a bash at doing it on Point (English not Scottish he he) for have a go at it.

    Yummy , although its not in my Dictionary kinda means good enough to eat, Scrummy about the same meaning. I think Lesley has a better dictionary than mine.

    I have to say I learn a lot of American words on here too

    Either way Elle, we will get them educated to some of our more localised language, won't we? You will have to drop in the odd Spanish offering too.

    Sounds like you are not taking 'no' for an answer, Ducky.

    Check this one out: http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-113420-1.htm

    Lovely - I can't help noticing how almost everyone moves the blocks around. I've done that already, swapping two sets of two around.
