    Ok, we are so much alike as you said. Those fabrics are yummy. How good is this?

    If I took a photo of your fabrics they are big piles of pieces until I get them organized. I could just photo the pile on the floor right now or maybe the cupboard I am going to pull them from.

    appears i'm the only one in Minnesota--unless that one dot represents more than one person . so went to Hancocks --decided I didnt like one fabric I had picked up over the weekend so bought a replacement i liked better. also the white i picked up at Mill Ends I decided to replace as not sure if 100% cotton. Now to chose between the two color schemes I'm debating on using-- do I go with brighter or more subdued colors? Decisions,decisions,decisions!

    Melinda,

    My mom was born in Eugene but grew up near McCredy Springs? I think she graduated from Sweet Home (1954). She moved in her senior year. I can't remember what little town she grew up the majority of her life it, but it wasn't too far from Sweet Home. Her dad worked for the railroad.

    Ok Linnie, I will photo them for you just so you can see what I get to pick from. Still thinking and looking for that right pattern. I thought from going thru the fabrics, they would tell me what pattern they lend themselves to. Also, got a wild hair (before looking at my checking account) and looked in the Connecting Threads catalog that came in mail. I fell in love with the Briar Patch Quilt Kit and the Florabunda Quilt Kit. Then I came to my senses and told myself I don't need another quilt. I would have kept those for myself! Yep, got think of you and what this quilt will do for you.

    Sorry to ask the remaining ladies to be patient.

    Kind of interested to know if many will show pics of fabrics they are using, but not the pattern they have chosen. The one I chose is definitely civil war era and now I'm having fun researching the underground railroad quilt codes...some believe it existed, some don't.....don't know enough about it but the idea is very interesting. Anyway, hope I've chosen a good one.

    OH YES YOU HAVE GIRL!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am looking forward to it if that is the theme you are going with. I have given the ones I made like that away. Would so love one along that line. Wow, (wiggle wiggle wiggle in chair (That is a happy dance)). There is a Jennif Chivearii (SP) book that has some stories of the underground railroad. The Elm Creek Novels. Now how am I going to work when I want to have fun sewing and talking with you.

    Lauri,
    Oh its so beautiful out in that area. Have you ever been? You should go visit. So I have narrowed your quilt down to two different patterns and hopefully the fabric will be here today. The fabric will help me decide which pattern to use. I am so very excited.

    Linnie's fabric for her quilt

    Ok Linnie, here is what I get to pick from for your quilt. Not sure which pile is best. Yep, those are scraps and small pieces, the tubs are full of scraps and that is only two of them, then that cupboard is full of my special Buggy Barn fabrics which I am leaning most towards for your quilt. Yep, those are mostly scraps but have some good chunks in there as well. Just thought I would let you decide from here. (LOL) If anyone wants to come over and help me get organized, that would be great. Yep this is last years mess I made making the 120 ufo projects.

    Marytoddliz and I have connected, will be communicating more soon. Ideas are buzzing around my head, waiting for one to sit still long enough to grab.

    I hope a lot of you gals show your progress, it is so motivating!! I would show my pattern, but it is all in my head! I am designing Mindless quilt from a few other quilts I seen as motivation. I plan to post photos as I progress

    OOooOOoo I have heard about the underground railroad quilt codes! I hope you post photos as well, that is truly interesting and fascinating, I hope you share their meanings with us!!
