    It's okay to use the large print if, like Elisabrat, you want just the colors, but I couldn't cut up that darling birthday fabric.

    An island or a Mexican resort sounds like a winner. We've had a lighter than usual winter, but March will bring the snowbanks looking dingy and I'm not a fan.

    I have to decide on A or B. And I can replace any of them. I need a runner for our table in the mountains and have it on my "to do list". The bonus in looking in a forgotten stash of fabrics for it I found a completed quilt top. I must have finished it before my last major back surgery in 2005 & it got buried. WhooHoo. Quite a bonus.
    Judy, which of the D fabrics would work better?

    Thanks, Sunlvr, you can always PM me. This is good inofrmation. I haven't used the crop feature much.

    Elisabrat I like your 2 large prints and think they will look good cut into little pieces. I have my fabrics chosen. I have 5 picked out right now. I think there is enough of all of them to switch them around to different positions. I know I need to eliminate one. I keep staring at them and can't decide which one to eliminate. I won't have time to work on this weeks clue until Sunday or Monday. Saturday I have Weight Watchers at 8:30, I need to go to JoAnns for a case for my sewing machine before my retreat in 2 weeks. The closest JoAnns only has one that is huge. I have a quilt class from 11-2, near another JoAnns that has a good selection. I need groceries desperately and have to play poker Sat night.
    The sun hasn't really shined here in the past 2 weeks. We need to take this train to somewhere sunny.

If you know how, please share.
    I'm also on IPad & have PhotoPad app to help downsize pics.have used it a few times.At 1st,would go to my photos to see if pic was smaller.It looked the same,but is smaller when e mailed or used on line.Hope that helps.

    PS,your pic might
    be sideways if you were using the camera while holding iPad horizonical.Try vertical instead.

    Here are my fabrics. They aren't in any special order at this point. I need to eliminate one of them. Right now I am pretty sure I am going to take the last one out. Looking forward to starting.

    Jean can I steal your green fabric? that is great! and the gold dots? I want to steal that one too. who makes the green one? I think its perfect for so many projects I can think of.. that is stuff I could look at over and over and never get tired of. very pretty runner you will have. lots of pretty runners I think will show up. yeah I wouldt want to cut up the one posted first with big people like not cutting off heads or anything (bad plan) but most of these would be ok cut up even birthday one but maybe that could be saved for the backing. I assume the fabric included backing when it was posted?? or that is one big runner. so bigger patterns then could be used for the back if need be and well.. Judy usually doesnt give it all a way in the first instructions for cutting so at that point one could decide which is the focal fabric. unless she mixes it up so much we are cutting binding first lol. good question though Judy are the fabrics for the front only or for the whole project? because my minds eye was picking from my groups the backing out of them each time.. I flip mine all the time.. so if not I need to go pick backing too. nah I have about 2 yrds of most of each of them. oodles of fabric.

    meanmom, I love the colors in the first four. Oksewnsew, those are going to be gorgeous together. Like Linda, I like the green and the shimmery gold. My Christmas fabrics are extremely dated so I haven't considered them. The tiny holly on white type of thing from the early 90s.

    First of all, all the fabrics posted since I was on yesterday are great. But I am still having a problem with scale -- You have to remember this is a runner, it will have smaller pieces. So, that said, think about how those huge scale fabrics will end up -- for the most part, you will not see the pattern, and if it is abusy print with lots of colors, it will end up looking like ...not sure if you could call it scrappy.
    Oops! I was going by the fabrics you posted -- the focus fabric looks fairly large scale. So, what kind of scale should we be aiming for if the fabric is an overall pattern?

    Elisabrat, I recently got the green at Hancock fabrics, for another project but didn't use it...If you can't find it, I would be glad to see if we still have it here and send you some. The 'gold' pc is by Robert Kaufman, Fusions #6582, but it's 'old'...I couldn't find it online but RK has come out with lots more Fusions that have the similar look. Glad you liked my choices. Thanks for all comments..

    Yes, peeps! But I like mine a little aged, they must be nice and chewy. Would anyone like some Welsh cookies, sour cherry or the traditional current?

    I'm using Windows 8. I haven't had any problems, although I don't like what Windows 8 has for editing pictures, I need Photoshop back. lol

    OKsew - great fabrics! If I may make a suggestion, IMHO if from left to right you have the A on the far left, perhaps you night switch the print to B and the gold to A.

    Whitepine - this will be fantastic!

    OMG I thought I was the only one who opened the pkg of Peeps and let them get stale! Yup. best when they are chewy!

    Update on the puter porblems -- desktop not worth fixing. Bought an all-in-one instead of a new desktop or laptop, they will transfer all data and set it up and I should have it back some time tomorrow. I will post something at 8:00 MST, either the next posting, or to tell you when you should try back for the instructions.

    Traditional currant, please. And to make this truly international, I'm providing some pecan pralines and bunuelos from Mexico.

    I have two basic colors, burbundy and black, in the print, and it all runs together with all the colors well mixes so even when cut, you see all the colors.
