    Everyones fabric choices are awesome! I have never done anything like this before. How does one go about choosing what and how much?

    Mirabelle....wow! Would I love to have someone's stash to raid that has those kinds of fabrics! Lucky you.

    well, I broke down & copied the patterns this morning- so I guess i'm committed now. I love the fabric selections I've seen so far- I still need to finish up my *in the works* projects- have deadlines to meet- but I can at least pull fabrics & start getting organized. excited to start.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Cogito, I pick whatever I like and goes well together. I think FQ's will do.

    Honchey--the floral just says "Peggy Toole for Robert Kaufman"...after doing a little searching I am pretty sure it is from the Tuscan Wildflower line http://images.search.yahoo.com/image...bFWxe2c&fr=w3i

    There is a newer line with a similar fabric too called Florentine 4 http://www.robertkaufman.com/fabrics...PTM-13065-201/ I got a couple of the blue florals from this line (they just aren't in the picture I shared since they just came into the shop.)

    Honchey--I forgot to say that the purple w/squares doesn't have the selvage end with words. I know we have some more at the shop, so will check Wednesday when I work and let you know.

    QuiltingNinaSue and JeanieG - thank you!! The blocks are beautiful, I love them. I downloaded the patterns. Currently I'm working on the Dear Jane thread (and a little behind) and am considering Affairs of the Heart (AOTH), I bought the book and it's a beautiful quilt, also. So many projects, so little time.

    Copied patterns and am going to try this. Like paper piecing but never tried a BOM before. Now to shop my stash and find fabrics, about how much of each will be needed?
    Thankful to still be here.Someone upstairs must still have a plan for me.

    I have downloaded, but want to try and be coordinating in this one. I did the 50 fabulous PP stars, and it was all scrappy. So I'd like this one to be different. Guess I have to go shopping in my stash, then on to the stores. Katie

    Just starting out at trying my hand at quilting, generally I am a knitter. Not going to be able to start on the 3rd, have to dig through storage for my machine, and not sure about what fabric to use, have some on order and will have to dig through my stash.

    Welcome to all the newcomers for our BOM! We are please to have you join us old-timers (not in age necessarily )! We have done several quilts together already, so this is our latest adventure!

    Welcome!!! Spikers, one and all!!
    I'm not going to name everyone, one by one ... for fear I miss someone.
    We're going to have a lot of FUN as we work our way thru these fancy hexies!

    LisaLaMadrid ... Welcome to the QB ... and SYE! ... Don't worry about not starting on the 3rd. I'll be with you, and starting a little later, because of other commitments! While the goal is to do two blocks per month, some will work ahead, and some will follow in their path. And soon, you'll get caught up in the excitement and be moving up in the pack!

    For amount of fabric, some of us are figuring 2 yards for background. I got 12 or so FQs and am sure that will be more than enough since there are only 12 blocks.

    I have 7 different packages of fabric from http://www.RainbowFabrics.com each package of Rainbow colors are equal to 3 yards. Its very hard to decide which one to use. I have been saving them for this moment. But the decision is hard. Anyone have advise on the best one??
