    I'm going to go through scraps from baby quilts...I have a ton of them...will make this into a donation quilt. If I have alot of pastels & alot of brights, I might make 2. Going to go through them after I work on my medallion quilt I need to catch up first...it's another, since I made the original into a baby quilt & finished the top & backing already...who knows when it will get quilted & finished. I'm happy this is scrappy...yes, Judy, lots of us are trying to tame them! Going to go make some spiced chai tea..............

    im not a big fan of mysteries but I think im going to join in on this one... Why not.?? whats it gonna hurt ?? Ive got scraps and lots of 'em too !!!

    A is sashing, B will be very prominent.

    Fabric A – 18” WOF OR You can use 2 identical fat quarters for A.
    Fabric B – 3/4 yard (need more if you want binding to blend with topper)
    More about finishing during week 5

    Binding – wait until you are done to see what you want to use.

    Ok got it !!!!!!

    Yeah! On board for the first time. Shepard's pie and brown ale have been delivered to the dining car. I am tearing through my baskets and bins looking for perfect A and B....scraps are no problem.

    We are in the middle of redoing the living room--everything goes except the major furniture pieces. I am in way over my head so will have to be a looky-loo on this. Very interested in watching everyone progress.

    What's with all this 5:00 stuff? Around here it just has to be after 12:00 p.m. Good thing is it is always after 12:00 somewhere on this planet.

    I have seen some interesting combinations. Starting to get a handle on my direction. May have to do two, one for me and one for a lap quilt for the local nursing home.

    Okay you all talked me into it. I've never done a mystery, but have lots of stash. Time to go tiptoeing through the fabric.

    I will watch for a little bit and then see if I have enough scraps. Not something I have a lot of.
