    Ok, sunlite, I will succumb to your uncontrolled begging.

    This time, and this time only, as a thank you to all of you who have shown interest in my mystery,the second set of directions will be posted tomorrow morning by 10:00 at the latest. Sound good to you all? And for those who have asked about doing this in scrappy, I will also post my scrappy starts that I have made, in additional to the fabrics I showed you on the first day of the mystery.

    You need to wait a while, for some reason it is really slow lately. You think it hasn't posted, and poof, there it is after you've tried again. Hard for me to be patient, but .....

    Thank you Judy. Wished the pictured showed up better. There is a whole lot of handwork on that quilt. And I wish I was a southern girl.

    Can you post it in pictures so I can see a bigger picture. It is so pretty and colorful. And why do you wish you were southern?

    I don't know if it will show any better but I will try. I love the south. wished I lived in Georgia. Love the weather there(except the hurricanes), love the accents. Southern charm, southern gentlemen, I don't know.

    I guess I need to take close up pics of the blocks for you to see the hand work. I will email you a pic and see if that works better.

    Thanks Judy!!! Can't wait to start. Have about a dozen fabrics picked out to try. And 2 bags of scraps. I even purchased a fabric that I now claim as "ugly" that might have to go into one for someone else. Christmas gifts might be early this year.

    Hi Everyone, I have my fabric picked out..I went thru several totes and can't find my red & whites that I got for a quilt a couple of years ago and discovered this oh so pretty fabric that I bought when I visited my son in Arizona.. It's by "In the beginning" and the line is Melissa's Magic Garden...It is so soft and silky...I think that's why I bought it. I will be making the top bigger so I want to use all the fabric shown. I won't be cutting yet because I need to see a little bit more of how the pieces lay out. Can't wait to see the next step. Honchey

    That computer is really giving you fits lately, isn't it, Honchey?
    I'll just imagine how beautiful your fabric is ... as I'm sure that'd be all that you have in your stash!!

    I'm hopping aboard!!!

    I've been stalking this thread since it was started. I just needed fabric. Then I decided I had enough projects going. Then today, I couldn't resist and bought a set of reds. (I've been really really wanting to do something in reds.) So here they are. I want my A fabric to be prominent, to stand out most, have more showing, right??? so I'm wondering if I should trade it places with my F. Any opinions?

    Keep in mind this is my opinion. I would use the A fabric in another project that needs to be fussy cut. Then I would buy another large print red. The way you cut the A not a lot of the bird print will be showing.
