I am sorry that the financial burdens are falling so heavily on you.  I know how tough that can be.  Maybe you can stock up a little at a time.  I love the Mirage line.  It almost has a silky feel to the fabrics and the colors are fantastic.

Cindi:
Maybe its not too much control.  :D  Just a little right?

Cindi, I like your control!  More my style.  It is so hard for me to "mix it up".  You are going to a have a very pretty, monochrome, controlled quilt!  I like blue and have some special fabrics I need to use, but hate to cut them up.  Need a solid or tone-on-tone to go with them.  Need to let them "season" in the stash for a while.  I need to use up what I have before investing in more fabic.  I just drool now!

Cindi, I love the blues...it might be controlled but I think it is going to be absolutely beautiful.

Yeah! I finished step 4 yesterday evening!  I hope I have plenty of time to work on step 5 this week, and that I can sew those together quickly.

Marsha,

Watch the sales closeouts for Connecting Threads on line.  Their prices are normally $5.96 a yard and often have sales as low as $2.00.  I have gotten quite a few great neutrals at closeout prices.

Cindi

Pretty colors but I am sorry to say that those blocks are pretty controlled...LOL>

 

LOL.  Yep, it was enough that the edges were scattered!

My niece just sent me this link this morning.  If you are a Dr. Who fan or Star Trek fan take a look.  http://www.spoonflower.com/tags/doctor%20who?image=design&page=1&t=doctor+who

 

LOL, I showed those to my daughter and suggested a quilt made from them might be a good Christmas present for her long time boyfriend.  She said, "*I* want a quilt out of those!  Forget him!"

True love, I tell ya, true love.

:D

walla2butterfly:
gather that I need to probably add extra width to the last rows but not sure how much. I have done a rag quilt before but I dont remember off hand, it seemed like I had to do a large seam.

When I've done rag quilts I know you generally want at least one inch extra on each side  of the block for the rag effect, so for a five inch block you need a seven inch square of fabric.

For a log cabin block, if your logs finish at one inch, you would need to use a two and one half inch strip for the final round on each block. You sew your seams and have one inch raw edges which you then slice to the seam. Hope that makes sense.

TWEETY,  what fabric are you needing.  Maybe someone has some extra.  Post a photo and maybe we can help.

Mary, love your colors.  Looks like this is going to be a nice light quilt.  I can't imagine where you were having trouble, or why you were upset last week.  We're all here for you, but it looks like you're doing a wonderful job.

CarolW, wowza.  nice bright colors.  This is going to be a fun one.

Debi, the black is a bold choice.  I think it's working well with the white and pink(?)

There was one in all blues.  I love it, now I can't find it again.

Found it.  Cindi's got the blues.  I don't think anyone else is doing monochomatic are they?

okay so I am done with step 5 but only better half done on step 4. I think I am missing a couple of patches so decided to do step 5 to get that material out of my way so I could see what I had. My points came out so so. Seamed like last night they were great but this morning just struggled. there is a couple that need torn out but I am going to do that another day. So not sure how this is coming out. seems to muted. I have the orginal material I was thinking about  for the border sitting there. It was scrap but I might have to break down and buy something to help pull ... something out of it. so here it is....

I have started Step Five and did not get done this weekend. I hope that I will get caught up by the next step.

I am using Maison De Garance Jelly Roll by French General I am not sure if I like it.
