    if i recall that was advice to one particular set of strips where one strip was close in tone and value to the fabric 'F'

    fabric 'F' is not part of the strip set, only the five 2 1/2 inch strips

    The 'formal' instructions were to arrange in an order pleasing to you

    Now back to the club car where the songs have traveled thru the decades and the electric slide folks just finished their marathon

    I do like your choices Juropat. In fact I think everyone's choices are great. Every quilt is going to be so different. That is what is so fun about this mystery quilt.

    OK,Sunlite, now I get your adgenda -- you're trying to get all of us fat! (Can I preorder two oatmeal scones?) Meet you in the dining room by 10:00 a.m. at the latest.

    And I know you are anxious, but breathe deeply, relax and enjoy the week. Next Monday will be here before you know it.

    Finally got mine done...I used scraps I had of partial 2 1/2" strips to make sure my seams were right...& saw Judy's scrappy version, so just grabbed ALL the partial 2 1/2" strips & made the 4 blocks like the step #2 called for...then I re-read Judy's post for the scrappy & you make 16 (?)...if I made a scrappy 50"x60" (or thereabout) how many scrappy squares would I need? It's a good way to use those partial strips, but I don't know if I need 16. Please help, Judy!!! Anyway, here's the dragonfly version (original post) & the start of a scrappy.

    If you recall, PaintMeJudy advised the pattern we are making is for a 28" block.
    So .... if you are wanting something larger, that's where you will make the decision, whether you need 2, or 4 or 6 etc.!

    Thanks, I'm happy with the blocks also. The kitty fabric is actually my ironing board cover. Although I have over 120 different kitty fabrics, I don't have this one.

    dotcomdtcm, Halloween fabrics sound great. I have over 100 of those, too, but plan to wait until I see how this mystery turns out before deciding if I use some of the Halloween stash. I'm really looking forward to seeing yours.

    Everyone's blocks are awesome so far.

    Love everyone's 10.5" squares! I have my 2 1/2" strips cut, but since I am away from home and my sewing machine until the 27th, I can't sew them together. (on an RV trip-wish I had brought my machine now--next time for sure!!

    Next step is March 19. Then April 2 and, finally, April 16. So, a lot of happy people here every second Monday.

    Thanks, I think I get it now...just my dense brain at it again! Will wait till the next clue to decide how to go with the scrappies...I may have enough for 2 scrappies! They will probably be donation quilts anyway...the more the merrier, right?

    I love your fabrics, that will be a stunning quilt!

    Whitepine, I agree about sewing long stripes and keeping that scant 1/4". While I do have a quarter inch foot I also adjust it as far to the right as it allows. But I am reminded of a lesson years ago and I think it was Eleanor Burns that taught when sewing stripes never go beyond 18"in length and you'll be more accurate. I was short on my stripes too as I was using scrapes for some of my fabrics. But it all comes out in the end and that is the goal! lol

    Hugs,
    Cajun
