    Irishrose, I agree with you. I'd also look at the pale pink from the 3rd pic instead of the D ( pink and white roses) in pic 1. Think you could also go with Pic 4 except change out the dark on the far right to a lighter shade maybe? Think that was labeled for the binding though, (should be back and read carefully ) so maybe you could just wait until it's done and see what you like.

Size:  247.4 KB This choosing fabric thingie really makes me "itchy, " Judy. So I've numbered what I have (because it would be easier to say #1 should be A), but I have no ideas which way they should go. Can you tell me what order you think they'd be best? I will have to buy a #6 and will buy others if you think these color values won't work. Just tell me what you think. I promise not to "go off on you!" Some folks have thin skins, but I can take it. I think. Possibly. Well perhaps. Maybe. I think I'll just go whimper in the stash closet awhile.

    The picture did a somersault!! Wow! Last time I checked it was right side up. Hmmm...this trip is already interesting! I have beef stew, green salad, and frozen yougurt with homemade blueberry sauce ready for dinner. Who's ready?

I have one could be set, two almost sets with four differrent fabrics I guess I go back through the bins all two of them, pull anything 1.3 yrds or bigger put t on the table and see if something pops out at me. I am fortunate for the gift fabrics I receive but they are usually left overs from quilts etc. I have a TON of red/white polka dots. However they are the cut outs say from someone who made mass little girl dresses ? its the neck cut out portion of fabric but easily three yards worth if you could tape it all together... but no bigger than two hands worth at a time. so without knowing if something like this can work it goes back in the bin. I will be sew happy to watch your quilt play out. I think what the heck if I cant do it I can enjoy it from afar.
    Jaba love your combo, the Christmas colors in the quilt on this page are great oh so many of them are great. I am struggling with this huge contrast but have faith that it is going to work. It sounds like its in small enough pops as there is less of the fabric than the rest or its a frame? (clues come on everyone who is good at this .. clues for the clueless?)

    I have an 18" zuccinni staring at me. I think its zuccinni pancakes tonight what the heck, and the other 16 " will have to wait til tomorrow unless anyone wants some? little s/p and a dollop of sour cream they are pretty darned good all crispy.. here train riders over here! maybe if enough join me in this little treat I can use oh another 2". Last week I made two HUGE loafs with cream cheese frosting and it was only a 12" zuccini. sigh. that is one huge zuccinni. spell check. I am tired just staring at it. saw a recipe today in foodtv mag it was for mac and cheese. It had 8 or 9 cups of cheese in it. IS THAT REAL? never made it from scratch but that seems like well a ton of cheese.. bet its good but 8-9 cups.. if its non calorie and I make it can I serve that here or only sweets? let me know hate to bring the wrong thing.
    Our favorite way to use up zuchinni is: place a large skillet on the stove with some(? 2-3 T) olive oil on med heat and slice up a large onion and saute til soft; slice up the zuk and add it to the sauteing onion; at this point you can also some sliced pepers (green, red, or hot) and saute til soft. When all the vegs are soft add 3 or more chopped garlic cloves and sautee until soft (not burned, unless you like them that way....I do). Meanwhile, be cooking pasta (spaghetti is great, but anything you have in the pantry will do) to al dente and drain. Place onion, zuk, etc into pasta pot and had 1/4C parma to mixture and toss....s/p along the way. Another favorite is Zuch bread.

    I recently told Everose in another thread that a red, white and black quilt was in my future after seeing a recent finish of hers. I found these in my stash. I'm deciding between the 2 Fs, though I do think the E is dark compared with the red in A. I think I will go on the premise that when they are sewn together, they will match. Any thoughts? After seeing the pictures, I am leaning toward the busier black and white (the first picture).

    The pictures won't load. I'll play with them and try again.

    I am interested in joining the mystery train ride. Will either of my selections work? If both will work, then which of the two will work better.

    IrishRose and Dia, I like both of your second pictures.

    Pat.. I don't own any yardage. All of my fabric is donated scraps, and I"m dirt poor hehe. so I will have to see how much my birthday Joann's gift card with a 40/50% off coupon gets me and see what i like.

    Irish, I LOVE your black and white fabrics. Going to do a black/white spicy swirl and have started gathering fabrics. Your's would be just right with my mix. I was looking for another fabric to switch with one of mine and found a bright fabric that I really like. So I'm leaning toward a total new color combination.

    I made a big batch of apple sauce (to die for good), and still apples on the tree so I can make an apple crisp to share.

    Di, I have extra of some of them. Which ones are looking for? These came from three different boxes, so they are not coordinates. Some is very inexpensive, but seemed to wash up well.

    Busy busy today, running since I got up and finally got time to come online and see what every one is up to -- and you've all been a busy bunch.

    Elizabrat - try this - I posted it last year, http://www.quiltingboard.com/recipes...ad-t62003.html . I like the top and bottom fabric selections you posted.

    Jeannie, yes, I think they will work well. Pretty fabrics.

    roseirish, if they don't fit, take in a seam or two or trim if too big, add a strip if too small.

    coopah - #2-6 look great, very pretty but fear #1 is too big for an E or F as it will not be cut in big pieces. As to the way they are labeled, I would call 2 and 3 as A and B; 4 and 5 and C and D

    sewzw I love to make zucchinni that way also, but I add some peeled chopped fres tomatoes, too.

    irishrose - LOVE that combination of fabrics. Looking at the way they are laid out left to right, I'd name them B A D C. E and F are great.

    DIA Both would work, but personally I prefer the top choice. But use what you like best.

    Dungeon - absolutely gorgeous choices.

    Thank you for the input, Judy. I flipped the fabrics and will label them before I take them off the table. I hope my new C is prominent - I love red roses on black.

    I think I'll bring a crockpot of cauliflower and cheese soup. The cauliflower are big and beautiful this year.
