In my own case, I'm not so sure that quilting is cheaper than a therapist :)   LOL

Fabriholic! I think I want to spell that differently. fabrihaulic meaning you get together with a bunch of your quilt friends and "haul" away fabric from their stash that DH has seen and is sick of moving so he can sit in his chair.

Nana:
It will work best with 2 fabrics with stark constrast
Nana our LQG is having a two color challenge quilt, we pick out a crayon for the main color and then must use the color wheel opposite for the other less dominant color to create a quilt. I've got yellow-green for color #1 and red-violet for color #2. Do you suppose that would work?

Thanks Judy T, Marie and all for the comments on the Seattle Sue blocks. They're handy to pick up in the evening while watching TV and, as you say, bring back memories.

Those colors would definitley work.   Any 2 colors that give a big contrast will work great.  Just hold off on buying fabrics until I finish getting the yardages together.   Since this quilt is only using 2 colors it tends to take more of each fabric then we usually figure.

Nana, my LQS is having a sale tomorrow during Super Bowl time. I was wondering if the measurements for the two colors had been posted yet? Also if I remember correctly, they have to read as solids, is that correct?

The colors should read as solids.  I haven't posted requirements.  Everything on requirements and cutting instructions should be reaady to come out the middle of March.   But I will say that when I buy fabrics that I am not sure what I am using them for I always buy 3 yds of each fabric.  That will usually cover anything I want to make.

Thank Nana, that is what I thought I would do.  The border will be the distinct factor I presume.
