    This is my fabric for the 3 month group. I included a piece of the green also in each packet with the focal print and ask that you use only solid white with it. Name:  DSCF3308.JPG

    I had to get more fabric for my Bonnie Hunter quilt today after class, and I got a piece of red TOT since I KNOW I didn't have anything like that. There was only one piece in the whole store that was red on red, lots of red/ white, or red / black, or maroon / black but alls well I have my piece of ror.

    Yep, I bought my red-on-red today too, along with some citrus yellow TOT and some darker gray TOT.
    Jaba- I'm making absolutely sure this time before hand- solid white only, NO WOW? I have Kona White on hand already along with lots of WOWs. We want to make you something that you love! BTW-beautiful fabric.

    Boy I did a dummy, sent off a package of my scraps and my red tone on tone was in there. The piece I sent for a sample has quite a bit of tone. Should have grabbed paint chips like Kass did. Thought everyone would have red on red sorry some of you had to go buy some.

    oh my we had a good dinner, I threw in the crockpot short ribs, quartered onions, carrots and potatoes. Added dry mustard, paprika, curry and chili powder. Great flavor and the meat just melted in your mouth.

    Terri... tonal red. That's a hard one. I don't know if I've ever even seen such an animal. Would a red tonal batik be okay? Otherwise I can go searching.

    OOPS! Sorry sewbizgirl - that was Kassaundra's yellow!

    mjpEncinitas - good question! It's a red without orange or blue tones.

    Yes, but that yellow with my blueberry would make a great fruit basket don'cha know! Actually, the fabric collection I'm thinking of has prints of lemons, blueberries and baskets in various arrangements.

    Citrus colors (to me) are orange, lemon, lime, and pink grapefruit. Is that more to your liking? And is it okay to add dark green if necessary for a 3rd color? The citrus trees in my back yard currently have oranges that are just changing color from hard green unripe baseballs at this time. They'll be ready to pick in a week or so. The lemon trees should be blooming by then.

    I understand citrus colors to be the color of a ripe lime, ripe lemon, and ripe orange.

    Marietta, don't be nervous. Just do the best you can. We all interpret the requests as best we can, and the quilts all come together because of the constant focus fabric in each block. You'll do fine.

    Not this color.

    WOW means white with a white Design in it..Red on red and red tonal are pretty much the same thing

    See, these oranges keep popping up and they're always beautiful! I'm going to have to find some orange for myself one day. Great choice, Libster!

    Marietta, it's always a little confusing at first. We use a lot of abbreviations and short cuts so just ask if you have a question about something. Plus, we've gotten more specific on what we hope to get out of a quilt so if you aren't sure, you can always post here or PM (private message) the person whose fabric you have a question about. They'll respond. FYI, to private message somebody, look for a post they've written, click on their name to the left, and it will take you to another page where there's an option to PM them. It works much like an email but stays within the QB.

    I posted this in the original Boom 18 link but will post again here. I got the fabric in to finish all the F8s so will try to get them in the mail. Snowed here last night, kids didn't have school so had to keep them till their dad got off work. Took me about 20 min longer to drive to work due to the snow but its sure pretty!! Cant wait to see what beautiful work you do with this fabric!
