    AnnieRose, the 301, is making a Quilt for Kids in bright stripes and bright print triangles. May need to add some white if I run out of the prints. This is from my stash so I can send one along with the one from the Downy kit.

    Miss Ella, the Elna, has finished pink and black and is ready to start a bright Moda line called Happy - lots of turquiose. I'll need to add purple for that daughter.

    All colours for a random/mindless/wonky/scrappy but will have red sashing and flashes of red in the backing.

    I am doing dark teal, light teal, olive green, tan and beige. It is my sampler quilt, using three different fabric designs, one solid beige, one light print of teal flowers and the other is a dark teal background with beige flowers and dark olive green leaves. It is from the Clara Barton collection by Windham. Now I find out I can't get either of the prints, so I have to work around it. I have seventeen 12" blocks made and 36 to go, and I know I don't have enough fabric, so I will either cut back or get another solid print to fill in with a solid block. Don't know yet. The LQS didn't figure out correctly how much fabric I would need. So here I sit, wondering if I will even get it finished. It is a super special quilt for my husband and I as a remembrance of our 50th anniversary. Oh, it'll work out one way or the other. I'll make it work out! Edie

    I am using 6" squares, Civil War print and making a Disappearing 9 Patch with them. However, they sure are so pretty just as a 9 Patch lol....I might decide to not cut them into DNP :)

That's all set-in with "Y" seams.

    I'll have to make something quick, small, spring-fresh and floral after this one, just to clear the "taste" of this from my eyes!!! Never have made such a (personally) unpleasant quilt, LOL! To each his own!

    Jan. don't feel bad - I have a similar project for DD - acid green, acid yellow and black/white. UGH. Making Baltimore Blocks (there's another thread on those) just to keep my eyes from hurting!

    Next is finishing the border stage of a sampler with so many colors it's ridiculous - mostly autumn.
    Next are 4 "somethings" small crazy quilt projects using my dad's ties.
    And next ... and next ... and next ... and next. lol
    Me too on the.. And next ... and next ... and next ... and next.

    The colors on mine that are started:

    Double Irish Chain in Black, Medium Purple and Light Yellow. This is a charity quilt for the Music Booster to sell chances on. Colors were picked for the school colors.

    Magic Carpet Ride (Easter Egg Quilt as my DD call it) in Light colors of blue, green, pink and yellow AND

    a scrappy quilt I won't even start with all the colors in it. Although, the solid block is a medium blue.

    AMEN! I am also trying to organize my fabric stash and some of it that won't fit nicely on the cardboard forms that I am using is ending up in the scraps pile waiting for cutting.

    My current project is black, white, several shades of dark red ranging from burgundy to wine, and Kona Cotton Curry (a solid dark gold).

    Yes, I know this sounds weird but it actually coming together fairly well.

    I am using different reds (over 40) paired with black and white fabric. It's not my usual selection, but it is coming along nicely.

    was using browns, yellows & wines with a few touches of pink. Had all the blocks made and then X'd that. Now using blues. Not really committed to them, either. It's the quilt that keeps reinventing itself. lol...
