    Ok, thanks...I will just go ahead & use it. I appreciate your input! I have 5 craftshows in 6 weeks, so I will have to wait on doing this...but will keep checking in & getting the steps copied. Then I can get it made in Dec. BEFORE the mystery is solved as I don't do shows in Dec. anymore. Need to have time to get my personal gifts made!

    Hi everyone! I've got some fabric out, and keeping looking at it, then changing one for another, and looking at it! LOL I'll take a pic of the current one and get it posted soon. I'm looking forward to this train ride! I've loved the last two I've done!

    another train trip? yippee! havent finished the last one--got to final borders but they are fitting and been too busy to check out why.--The first mystery quilt was finished and given to friend who absolutely loved it. i'll have to keep track of directions and see if I can find pieces big enough in my stash and then the time to actually sew it in between secret santa an NYb blocks and a queen size quilt for Xmas gift.

    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.

    help

    Ok here I have any and all possible combos I could come up with due to size requirements.. this is it kiddos. I am open to any and all suggestions like hey toss that idea out completely to that one is great to use this from plan C and put it in plan A I dont care. Not knowing what I am making is well very tough on me and those who know how this works probably are laughing. TOO bad, playing so here it goes: plan A through D lol a lot but I told you I am stumped.

    ps that stripe I have 1 and a half yards of so I can get most things in the way I want them and sometimes its ok to move stripes isnt it to go half one way and half another? or is this a quilters no no? that is black in the pics the solid is flesh tone on a warm side, the roses are on green not blue as the pic shows in the medium contrast think its C photo.. other than that thats all I could come up with. I sure had to work to get those.

    Wow, Elizabrat, those are some nifty choices!! My stash pieces are all too small except for ones with violets (Sunliten you've got those, too). So I may just tag along and keep the club car clean! :-)

    Elizabrat, I like the first picture (abcd row two ef) and plan C, part 2, but I wonder how the light green on cream from plan C, part 1 would look in place of the pale lilac on the right in the first picture. ABCDE would stay the same and the green cream would become F. Just a thought.

    I also like Option C part duex. (the one with the pink on the far right). Do as I command! Do it now! :P

    Dang.. I don't ever have fabric big enough to play.

    What do you think?
    I like these a lot, very soft and soothing.

    I discovered a problem, the pieces I thought were 2 yards....some are one yard, now I know why some sort fabric by yardage not color .... so this morning I am going thru stash again because I "have to" spend 7 hours today at the LQS sewing with a group of very talented quilters who will have some awsome show and tell...sigh, and there will be four walls of fabric and thousands of bolts on display.......

    OH I am soooo sad for you Sunlits I would be dragging my feet to get to that event (and pulling all quarters nickels and dimes together just in case there might be a tiny piece of fabric I NEEDED). sounds marvelous.

    I went through my two bins of fabric. My sis donated a bunch to me recently and it was all.. well her choices of fabric which is fine but I had to go by yardage also hence the odd combos I came up with. That literally was all the large yardage I own. I would love a couple more opinions. I will put D back in the bin as well so far its a failure which is fine. so nix D now that leaves four other combos to vote on so vote please so I can put the rest away.
