    I have my HST's finished except for trimming them up. I decided to go very scrappy with batiks - hope these work!

    Lovelyl, those are .....lovely!!! I looooove the colors, those will be beautiful,no matter the pattern!

    Ok, I'm going to make 2. One will be a baby blanket for my darling grandson. The other will be a table topper to use on the patio this summer. I loved this "lemonade" fabric, and have been dying to use it. I have the cutest teal/red pitcher and glasses that will match it. I'm just not sure which others to use.


    The first photo is the baby quilt. I am debating whether to use the solid teal or the teal with the stars on it, both on the far left.

    The second photo is for the table topper. Out of the six, which would you NOT use?

    Also, do I have too many solids? Do I need some more small patterns?

    ETA: Excuse the wrinkling, I've just moved and am just now unpacking everything!

    Judy, glad to hear you're on the mend, it's no fun being sick! Takes away from our play time!
    Love your batiks! You & the boys have been busy!!!

    Love them! I see some that I have, too. BTW, how did you get your pics to show up normal size?

    Both are great...for the baby, I'd probably loose the solid tourqouise; for the table I'd loose loose the navy check. My opinion only.

Size:  217.4 KB All squared up! Ready for the next step. The colors aren't totally true. The turquoise is darker and the coral is, well, more coral, but you get the idea. Glad to be done...off to the club car for me...anything left to eat?

    It's actually black check, but still that's the one I was thinking of not using anyway, LOL. And the same thing on the solid! I feel better now, you confirmed my choices, LOL!

    lovelyl, love the fabrics. Thinking about a scrappy also. How many squares did you end up with? 32 or 48.

    Okay, I'm being the dumb blonde (not my hair color) but I read the instructions. I say32 in one place and 48 in another - someone help!!!

    VickiM - when I attached the pics I just went to Reply and used the tiny tree icon (3rd icon from right) to attach the pics.

    Everose - the way I understood the directions was to make 32 HST's using light, dark and medium fabrics and then make 16 HST's using background and med/dark fabric. That would make a total of 48 HST's. Now I am worried that I didn't understand the directions - guess someone will let us know!

    THis is how I read it, too. If you're doing 5 fabrics, that is. I think the scrappy version is worded slightly different, but still with a total of 48.

    do not know what the funny lines are .... they are not on the fabric ....maybe heat distortion...told you it
    was hot here



    the scrappy was 16 of scrapy with good contrast like one light and one dark, and 32 of "c" and scrappy
    I am thinking about doing that with my collection of wildflower charms

    This is so fun! It's the last week of school here and things are crazy! Looking at all the pretties here is just so ... change of pace? Flat out fun? Can't wait to see how everything goes together.

    Love the batiks
    Love the lemonade - that will make such a fun table topper.
    Coopah - love the pastels - even if the computer makes them more pastel than they really are - so pretty!
    SSmiles - your colors look so rich.

    I'm sure I missed someone's that I love, love, loved, but ... my brain is full.
    So many quilts, so little time.

    16 are scrappy on both halfs with contrast
    32 are "C" on one half and scrappy on the other half

    finally the sun has almost set and it is starting to cool off a bit

    Heck, every time I try something I never know what I am going to get! You can always watch and if you like it make it after the Mystery Train is finished... But be sure and hang around for all the good food and good company!
    Karen, prayers for your speedy recovery~

    Love all the fabrics everyone. I am going to do batik scrappy too. I have several charm packs that I have had forever. Bought them when I first started quilting. Now I can use them. Thanks for posting your pics lovely. I need to get started on this. I just can't seem to get enough of my 6 month old grandson though. I spend a lot of my time with him. He was in the hospital Friday night and came home Saturday. Had to go to his house last night and rock him to sleep. Can't believe how fast he is growing. Thank goodness he already has several quilts from grandma.

    Darn..I think I read it the same way! Going scrappy and think I only did 32! I'll have to wait until the weekend when I get back to camp ( the only place I have room to sew!) And Ith ought I was all set for the next clue!
