    Jumping on board. Colors in this picture are not true, but you get the idea. Originally, I planned on a Christmas quilt, but did not have enough large pieces. Thus, fall (orange, yellow, green, & brown) it is.

    Belfrybat, I really like the brown with the small flower on it with the peachy color and the tonal with the leaves. I think it's perfect! Just my opinion though, grain of salt and all that

    If it makes you happy, it's worth the time!

    Thanks, Judy. Glad you are feeling somewhat better. Keep those fluids going!! Hey, Carsey, those grays and pinks are just the ticket for this trip. IMHO Now, if I can just find out where you live in FL, maybe it would follow me home if I visited you! Oh, just kidding. Maybe!!

Here is what i have going so farAttachment 374516 Although I am thinking of changing E or F to a lighter fabric like a white color.

    Can any of you experienced quilters let me know if my two darker fabrics are too dark together - the black print and the red/orange/black print? I'm never too comfortable with choosing colors. Thanks for any and all input.
    I think they look good...that darker color kinda brings it out!

    Carsey , I'm torn with this - but it boils down to this: do you want grey or pink to dominate?
    If grey - use the grey/white print instead of the solid pink. (I think I favor this combo.).
    If pink, use the grey/white print instead of the dark solid grey. This would be a more feminine guilt.

    Judy It's good to hear you are out of the hospital. Im glad you like my final blues.. LOL the total fabric purchased on my shopping trips for the blues tallied $600.00. I've been officially cut off from purchasing anymore fabric until the new year.. good thing that's not too far away.. LOL

    Num Num, Im not too late for the samoosas at the snack bar am I ??

    I am caught up on my other projects I was working on.. so tomorrow time to start cutting my mystery fabric and get caught up.
    Have an awesome day!

    I got my 9-patches done today...switched my E & F, as I thought they looked better this way. I didn't have anything left except the 1/2 strips. Ready for the next clue on Sat. Judy, glad you're better!

    Finished my 9 patch blocks also. Twice. I did not like the first set, pic 1, so I switched my E & F fabrics to make the blocks in pic 2. The patches that appear white are actually a very soft pale pink print. As it is I have tons of the fabric B I can always use the first set in another quilt. This quilt sort of reminds me of the 50s pink and grey poodle skirts. Yeah, I had one, LOL.

    Vicki and Caroline, pretty blocks, love 'em.

    Jenniky, you're lucky you're only cut off from fabric shopping till the new year! Or is that a self-imposed rule?

    Well, I did my HST tonight. I still need to square up some. So started but still want to catch up some before the new clue on Saturday. The colors are brighter but not sure how to get a true picture.

    Judy glad you are feeling better. Please continue to pace yourself.

    just following this one along. I still have the last one to complete, lol
    kind of like if you don't finish your vegetables you don't get dessert. I am enjoying looking at what everyone is doing and enjoying the variety of fabrics. Cant wait to see this done to "get" it.

    Ok I finally picked up a cheap camera so I can post my clue #4. I really like how they are looking. Everyone is going to end up with a georgous quilt.

    Glad you are feeling better Judy, keep up the good work.

    The more pictures I see of everyone's combinations the more anxious I am to see the finished projects. These are going to all be gorgeous!

    GET A DEPOSIT!!! especially from friends and family! I have been hanging onto a quilt for a YEAR that I told my daughters friend I would do, put $100 of my own hard earned money into buy some cute fabric for the job!

    The real corker is when I got paid, the whole amount by then! The crazy fool had the audacity to call me 5 days later and ask how it was coming along! I have not even started working on it again! Was getting ready for my run when I finally got paid! My thinking is she can wait for a bit on me! (I am making her a quilt out of all of her favorite clothing of her 3 children. I had it almost half way finished when my Hubby (God love him) pulled the plug) and it is a fun project but a lot of work!

    Rule of thumb 50% down, have contract ahead of time, and YES have them sign contract! Even if you know them, or should I say especially if you know them.

    Honestly for me the very hardest part of sewing for a living is being firm on the money! We love to quilt, but we don't give it away unless it is our Idea... Sorry to jump back on board with my opinion so strong! But when one has been burned, one will be cautious around the fire... if you have any questions just ask, I have lots of horror stories! But also lots of good ones too! Most of my business is making memory quilts out of someones items, and it is super fulfilling to be part of creating such a priceless item.

    Hi everyone did you miss me hehehehe... Where is the Soup, today is a soup and sandwich kinda day! I just finished my step two and three, and I am looking for clue # 4...
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!
