    Thank you all again, for the kind words!

    I selected the fabrics myself. I started by choosing fabrics that said to me, "am I blue, or am I violet?" Then there were some purples that just grabbed me, so I had to get them, and I had a beautiful cobalt blue fabric just waiting for something special, and I couldn't leave it out! Finally, I had ordered some reds, whites and blues for another project, and one of them turned out to be too violet for the R/W/B project, so it was added into the selection. I believe I ended up with 17 fabrics. It probably would have been easier with 20+, but I don't have very many places to shop (and see the actual colors), nor do I have a big fabric budget.

    I like the idea of metallic thread, however, I might like to sell it, and I think I want to be careful about how feminine I make it. I'd like it to appeal to either gender. My long armer thinks she would go with a variegated that will blend with and compliment the fabrics. Other input on this subject is welcome.

    Beautiful!!! Stunning!!! Awesome!!!

    Your camera may just need to have the battery INSIDE the camera changed - happened to me recently. It would no longer take a charge, and we thought the camera was a goner - then DH remembered that it might just need a new battery.

    ps. The camera is okay, it's one of my rechargeable batteries that gave out, mid function.

    Just been back for another look - it's really incredible how such a limited pallette (can't spell tonight - tried that word several ways and it still doesn't look right! But you know what I mean!) can produce such a stunning effect - in the right hands of course! If I tried it, it would probably look like a wholecloth! :? :lol:

    And 76" x 88" is ginormous to me, but I've been doing lap quilts and doll quilts lately so I guess that's why! :shock: :lol:
