Everyone's colors are coming together so well.  Here's my step 2.

Well the dark purple is not quite that dark.

Wow! Everybody's stuff is looking sooooooooooooo good! I feel like a real wild woman with my fabric choices here, compared to the well-coordinated groups I've been seeing, but oh well! After sewing and cutting for step 2, I still do like the funky way this is turning out, so far. Hopefully it will all come together well in the end. I HAVE learned to not doubt myself so much in the beginning stages, because in the end something beautiful and unique always comes out of it. Here are my colorful 4" cuts...can't wait for step 3 Friday - I am NOT participating in Black Friday shopping this year, so I will be able to get right to it, WOOHOO!

After seeing your Tracy, coordinated looks drab.  Love the color.

MNnancy:

Karyn, your fabrics are pretty.  Do you have more of the black background with orange and yellow flowers?  That would like nice in the border, I think, because it really pulls all your colors together.

Sadly, no :( That was actually a few placemats I "up-cycled" into this quilt (Nothing is safe in this house! LOL!). I do have more of a couple of the others that have the black/orange/green/gold (one of the striped pieces, but not sure how much I have left now LOL!) Will have to see how it comes together before I start freaking out about borders. This was all from my stash, hoping to complete it like that too....but, I guess, if I HAVE to go to the fabric store......*grin*

Mrs.O's Mystery is ready to cut, but I have to wait until Friday to see what I want to do; I might do this as a quilt as you go project, so first I want to see how big a quilt top I am going to make. When sewing, I only had one piece of fabric that I would have changed out of sequence but I left it, they are two snowman fabrics together. Oh Well !!  I sure enjoyed seeing and reading all the messages, but really there were 9 pages of hellos and wows.. lol  I’d like to say a WOW to all of you who have shared the pictures, and special shout out to MsMoomMist with those wonderful  state flowers, and another to Trayc’s beautiful  brights, hope you have a bit of the lavender paisley left to share in the paisley swap..lol and you just have to love the fun Christmas fabrics. I do anyway. The Blue and Blue is going to be just awesome, & MNNancy.. I hope it is yours that I am thinking about the one that has that great orange fabric that is a bit of a wavy pattern. LOVE it. Karyn your fabrics are lovely, & who was it that had those purples, pinks and green fabrics one of them reminded me of the swirly fabric (black) I had a while back.  OK I just think everyone has done a wonderful job so far, can’t wait to see more pics in media.
Oh and BTW I haven’t chosen border fabric as yet, main reason is I probably will go with a small Christmas stripe, if it looks like I can use it. We will see in the final step. I looked at some of Jinny Beyer border fabrics & I watched a you tube video on her designing process.

Tracy, your "wild" fabrics are eye-catching and not overdone because you have enough near-solids to balance it well.  Good choices!

Hcim55, a "field trip".  I am usually up for a field trip. I would love to go.  I think I would opt for a January day trip myself.  Have 4 full quilts for Christmas gifts in the works plus the 2 the granddaughter got me into.  So my plate is full for a couple of weeks.  But a "field trip" in January to meet new friends.  Ahhh that sings to me.

Thanks, Caryl Anne.  If this is the fabric you are talking about, it's the one that caught my eye in my stash that I built the rest of the choices around.  There's plenty left, so I hope I can find a way to incorporate more of it into the border.

OMG!!! the fabrics are gorgeous. I don't even have mine picked out yet. Since I'm new to the group I've enjoyed reading all the chats and seeing the pictures. You Girls are way too much fun.

WOW! The fabrics get better and better as we get to the next steps.  Well I had a mis-step last night after a day of shopping.  I decided to sew half my fabrics in step 2 and cut the 4" across and you guessed it, I cut at 3.5" on one block so I need to cut and stitch for one more block.  That'll teach me to try and do anything when I'm tired.  Will post pics when I finish the other half of step 2.

My mother and grandparents had a farm in Afton, NY.  Use to visit there.  Haven't been there in over 35 years.

Thank you, MNnancy. I am hoping that with a black/other dark border, it will help bring everything together. Either way, it's definitely against the grain and out of my comfort zone, which is what I wanted to do for my first MQ!

I am thoroughly enjoying this group. Everyone is so supportive and chatty, I just love reading all the posts and following how everyone is doing. This is definitely my first of MANY online quilting ventures through QCA!
