    I was considering pink and navy similar to the photo, but after you mentioned pink and browns, I'm debating that combination. So many people do not like brown (I'm not one of them) in a quilt that I have a lot of brown stash. Seems it is prominent on the sale racks so I buy it for who-knows-what!! LOL!! I'm excited to get started on this new project; not that I don't have gobs of UFO's.

    OK everyone! Here we go! Keep in mind this whole quilt is made of 3 1/2" squares and 3 1/2" HST's in various color combinations.

    STEP ONE: Please piece together 36 -3 1/2" squares from your PRIMARY color which will be the center of our star. This section should measure 18 1/2" square unfinished.


    Go get 'em!!!

    Here is the first step:

    Hope to have this done soon, remodeling our master bath is taking precedence.

    Hi jane, I think I'll jump in here but mine will be totally scrappy and I'll use some of my thousands of 2 1/2 inch squares. Should be a lot of fun!

    OMG Jane you have me hooked again. Going to start with the black and whites for the center and then I'll decide. Pic looks awesome and I'm not even a scrappy quilter. Thinking I can go lots of options this way....hopefully

    Yeah!!! Welcome!!! I finished my center the other day. Will post pics soon. I might tweak it a little bit though. I'm using blacks & whites for my background and reds for my primary color. Haven't quite decided on my secondary color yet - - -

    I love this quilt! I had to go back and look at the time frame. So glad it's over months, I can definitely do this! I might not be able to start for another week or two, but will catch up quickly. Thanks for organizing this!

    I encourage everyone to do an internet image search or Giant Scrappy Swoon quilts. You'll see some fantastic quilts and maybe get some ideas too.

    Nice block, Jaba. I like the b/w.

    Here's mine in blue. I am trying to step out of the box a bit more so the blues vary a great deal. Normally, I'd keep the shades of blue more similar but what the heck, let's see how this goes. I've got thousands of squares so if I don't like it, I have many more from which to choose! Might try to make sure no two fabrics are the same. That could take more time than sewing!

    Jaba is off already! Can't wait to see what you will make. I know it will be lovely.

    Also look at JaniceMcC. I like the great variety of blues. The swoon quilt with the blue star and white back ground appeals to me the most. I am still on the fence about joining.

    I am in! I will also be doing 2-1/2" charms. Have plenty of those and need to use them for something other then leaders & enders, pot holders, place mats etc. It will be a couple of weeks before I start though. am in the middle of cleaning my sewing room, don't think that will be finished for awhile. If you could see it you would say "OH YEAH!"

    Wonderful! Whether you choose the 3" or 2" size, it will be a great quilt.

    Not quite sure I want to keep the 'picnic ants' in there and might make some slight changes - - -
