    Sorry to hear of Judy's being down in the back. Been there, done that, and it is no fun. Prayers for a speedy recovery.
    OK, I'm trying again with fabric array. If I don't get started this weekend, I'll be too far behind to catch up. What about these choices? A is lighter than B, and C is darker than D. B & C go well together as they both have blue, plus leaves go with flowers. E complements A&B, and F actually goes with all of them since most of the colours are in it. E and F also have good contrast. I could switch out C for one of the Alts, but then won't have anything for F that contrasts well.
    I am lousy at matching fabrics, but since I already have these, can't exactly go down to the quilt shop and ask them for help as none of these were purchased there.

    I like the choices you have marked for A through F. The alt #1 could work for F also. But I think Alt # 2 may not work she had made a suggestion to someone else about directional or stripe fabric not to use them if you are picky about what way it is facing. And I am picky about that so I chose no directional fabric for this mystery.

    I really like Alt#1 in place of "F" anf those are great fabrics.........go with your A,B,C,D now, you can make final decision for E&F next week or the week after......have fun........if there is voting I vote for Alt#1 for "F"...LOL, no secret ballot here...(laughing)

    Thank you both. I missed the post on the directional fabric, but I really don't like that one anyway. So here is my final choices. (I know I only have to worry about A-B, C-D right now, but DO NOT want to buy more fabric to match them).

    Perfect! Sunlite's switch is the one I was going to recommend. The first F didn't have the same feel as the other fabrics.

    Going to try to keep up and finally pulled fabrics from my stash. I don't keep a lot of yardage (usually only buy 1 yard when I buy) so trying to shop from what I have.

    Here's what I came up with....I love this print and purchased the gold and silver with it. So was trying to find 3 other fabrics to go with....

    fellow riders, please let me know what you think. If something is too far off, I'll have to wait till I can get to the quilt shop next week.

    Oh, and the A - F are laid out as Judy's.

    Vickig626, those are awesome fabrics, but don't ask me about the color arrangement. I'm the world's worst without tons of guidance, but others are on the train who are just maestros at the color biz. Welcome aboard!

    After Labeelady told me yesterday about a new LQS I wasn't aware of, I visited it this morning and got this for "D". Thank you, Labeelady -- it's a great shop! I hope it's not too close to the same value as "C".

    Here are my stacks of HST's for clue 3. The solid green really brings out the green in the pinecones, I think.

    Katybob, I'm glad you found that shop. I figured you'd love it!

    ok, everyone, put on your sunglasses! you know it's odd for me to a
    do anything but bright! i have been wanting to do a polka dot quilt and found this great fabric, so i am on board with all these "seeing spots"! the 2 prints go with either end of the spectrum. they are in my second set of pictures, so don't dispair if you don't see them yet. appreciate any comments, good or bad. thanks!

    Love all the fabrics. Have a lot of ideas so when able to walk more in my own will get fabric then. Am printing off the instructions and so far looks good. Am waiting for tomorrow.
    So glad you are home and on the mend! Continue to take care of yourself and have a speedy recovery!

    Shadowirish, I agree with Sauki1, great fabrics but I would switch A and B.

    Thanks putercat92 and Sauki1......I'm such a newbie at this and fabric choices are really challenging for me. I'm trying hard not to be too matchy and predictable. I've been doing some switching and think I really like these A-D's but now I'm stuck on E and F. Opinions, please!
