    SunlitenSmiles,
    I LOVE your fabric! What is the name, manufacturer? Is it a new line, or have you had it for a while?

    Six & a half yards total?? 4 x 1 1/3 = 5 plus 2 x 3/4? Did I read this correctly? Seems like a lot of fabric. TY

    Omg I am loving all the fabrics. Mine are percolating a bit. Not real sure of the contrast. But....the red is washing as I type. Finally gathered enough to do a full load. Gotta love those red towels my son uses. Oh, Northcott, bestest fabrics in the world. Also love Modas. The feel is just so nice and there's never a question about buying them online. Trying to think of a goodie to bring with. Perhaps a peach cobbler with a bit of 1/2 and 1/2 for topping??? Not quite as on the hips as pure cream. LOL As If.

    Well I would love to join cause it sounds like way too much fun. But sadly I need to try and make 3 more quilts for Christmas pretty sure the gifted quilts won't all get done in time but hopefully started. If this quilt was going to be at least a Queen size leaning more to a size 92x92 I might be able to join....

    Wow, been a lot of activity and busy people!

    Ok, on to business - hope I don't offend anyone with my comments.

    reeskyler - I think you need more contrast on you E fabric expecially having A and D light fabrics.

    bibliostone - welcome!

    clevermom - perhaps you have too much white. And using fat quarters will be possible if you have plenty of them -- you will lose a lot when you cut. Also, don't use too whites - E and D. A C & F are lovely. Do you have a B with more color?

    Nelco - pretty colors, and yes, a gray would work. But I would switch D & C - C should be darker than D

    urgods - I'm afraid with the way this will be cut, this print is kind of large.

    Haylilliam - like top choices, they will be gret.

    Dotty - I agree, seems like a lot, but don't forget the size. And you know you lose a bit when you cut. And there is a bit extra.

    Judy you are too clever answering everyone and being so helpful. You are the perfect person to do this.

    Thank you, Angel, I try to tread gently. Last time, I made a suggestion to someone who completely went off on me and didn't do the swap. I hope that doesn't happen this time.

    Rabou - welcome! Glad to have you join us.

    Farm quilter - perfect! Love your fabric choices.

    ree - those are wonderful, will work great.
    ahwu, as I said to someone else who had 3 whites - no, sorry, it won't work. One white and then change two of the others. In fact the burnt orange and the print could be a pairing of fabrics, they look nice together. Do you have two other fabrics that go together that will blend with the oranges?

    WOW it is a hard job you have saying yes no that will work maybe not .. and how much are we paying you? commission? thank you for doing all that. I bet it makes you HUNGRY. how about some homemade roasted butternut squash soup with some cheesy french bread? oh and candied pecans to snack on after dinner while someone else runs for the dessert? anyone??
    I am going to try hard to find enough of what I have in stock to work with. I rarely get pieces this big as its mostly gifted to me. I do have a ton of pastels I could use not my first pic but maybe they could transform a bit for me worth a shot.. I have a bunch of one yard pieces praying here.. my christmas stuff has some bigger snowflakes etc so I think they wont work sigh.. I want to play in this sandbox oh oops on this train ride too! back after delicious no calories soup and cheese bread. If you think it has no calories maybe it doesnt. I want it to have no calories. tada! no calories at all.

    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Elizabrat - yes, sometimes it is hard. That's why no one has my address!!! LOL No, not true, lots of old friends here from doing Madelines BOM last year. Ooooo candied pecans - my staple hostess gift at the holidays! Always have pecans in the house for that. My recipe uses cayenne pepper, just a pinch, to give it a bit of a surprise.

    Jaba, I like the bottom set with one change. Have you thought of using the solid pink from the top photo in place of the dark-dark at the top of the bottom photo?

    I have received some wonderful FQ's in swaps on this board. Too bad I can't use them.

    I really like the second choice.. No idea if it will work with the mystery but it looks good.

    When I buy random fabric, I usually just purchase a yard...so may have trouble coming up with 1 1/3yd x 4.
    I do have a lot of batiks...think they would work?
    To QUILT is human.
    To FINISH is divine.
