    There is a lot more orange in the flowered fabric then this picture shows.
    The last fabric is supposed to be the focus fabric, as I remember. Go with your instincts on your color choice. Looks good to me as is.

    Pretty colors. Will look nice together, but no, it would not be good to use F the teal also in position A. What you have is very pretty. Your teal will be prominent and very nice.

I want to wait to cut my fabrics until I can get some kind of an answer. Thanks. This is going to be fun. Love the fabrics others have chosen. I want mine for a baby quilt. I love these fabrics & have just been waiting to use them!

    To anyone who is on the fence, as they say, as to which color will go in which position, I will only make this one suggestion. Hold off on cutting the 3-1/2" strips until they are ready to be used. You know that F will be prominent, so cut the five 2-1/2" strips and wait for the next set of instructions. "Nuff said!

    I haven't picked my fabrics yet, though hope to do that later today ... if not on the weekend for sure!

    Clarification please ... you mentioned 3-1/2" strips could be held off in cutting.
    In the original instructions you cut 3-1/4" strips from A ...... so I'm thinking this is one and the same ... and should these trips be 3-1/4" or 3-1/2"???

    For those of us who have already cut, and those to follow ... what is the correct measurement?
    Please? and Thanks!

    I'm in with red, black and white

    Well, I said that I was going to use this to expand my color horizons, but I guess I'm not, unless I try to do two! I'm going with my favorite red, black and white. What do you think?

    If the photo comes up properly, the A fabric (buttons) is on the left, and the F fabric (red with stitching and needles) is on the right.

    Good combo but how about adding a white background with small black print for a little more contrast? When I take my glasses off (do it all the time to see how fabrics work together LOL) the first three blend together.

    I already have 3 quilts in progress, but this is too good to pass up! I just retired yesterday, so I should have time to do 4 quilts, right? Off to look through my stash for fabric!

    I see what you mean -- I certainly have more black and white in my stash! I'll give it a try, thanks.

    Your fabrics are gorgeous! So not my comfort zone!

    Has their ever been a swap where you let someone else choose fabrics for you, other than a Boomerang? It might help me to expand my view if someone else forced me to!

    Well, Florence, you can always make another top with different colors. And now aren't you glad I made this an every-two-week posting? Yeah, it's murder to wait a month for that second thing that gets you started. But this way everyone can second guess themselves! LOL Just kidding, everyone is doing fine.

    Yes, thank you Judy. It is hard to wait a month for the next directions. I am in several BOMs and it just kills me. But it's not like I don't have anything else to do it's just that I don't want to. LOL.

    Lovelyl, your fabrics are lovely! Yes, they will be beautiful and will work nicely. I only would suggest separating what appears to be 2 blues, the 2nd and 3rd from the left. Will make the blue and pink stand out more. Love your purple.
