Annie:
 I have some charm squares I wanted to use, so maybe I can cut each of them into 4 - 2 1/2 squares

That's a great idea Annie, I have a lot of 5" squares. Let's see 628 2 1/2" squares, I only need 157 5" squares. Of course I also have a jelly roll or two laying around, hum, decisions, decisions. Good job I have a few weeks to decide!

Jacy,

Don't laugh but I have 160 that I've been wondering what to do with.  What do you think about the colors?  I've combined 2 different packs and not too sure if they clash?

Do you think the grey dot background will work?

Barbara:
I went ahead an ordered the kit, I liked the colors and the fabric, there will more then likely be a bunch of us that will have the same quilt

I ordered the kit, too.  I like that today they're offering free shipping :)

This line of fabric is beautiful.  I made a tote bag from a Bittersweet charm pack and get lots of compliments on the colors.  I think the finished quilt will be beautiful.

Patti:
I will cut my strips from a variety of fabrics I already have

I'm also cutting strips from my stash and following Patti's suggestion to use a lighter background with medium and dark 2 1/2" strips. I really like the scrappy look.

This is going to be fun!

Annie, your colors look great. They'll make a bright cheery quilt. I'm a little jealous that you've got your fabrics figured out so quickly!

I love the grey dot background, it carries the polka dot theme and also goes well with the greys and blues. Your quilt is going to be lovely.

Next week is Spring Break for me!  I guess I'll have to convince my fiance to add a stop at a quilt store for a new jelly roll!  :)  I'm a new quilter and don't have much in my stash that coordinates at all.

I too loved the colors in the kit, and guess what I ordered the kit too. It will be very interesting to see how all our quilts come out using the same kit. Good Luck everyone,.

Your fabrics look great together, I ordered the kit, ut I also have a lot of scraps so I might try doing two.quilts. One from the kit and one maybe from by stash.

Barbara:

Barbara, I have not bought a quilt kit before and was tempted this time, but have bought too much fabric lately (is there EVER TOO MUCH?) and the budget won't allow.  I have a special one yard piece that I especially love that will work for the border and have many fabrics that will go with it, so have decided to make up my own jelly roll again and not buy any MORE fabric.  My stash isn't large, but I have many in fall colors, so that is what I will use.  Going on vacation to Texas in week and a half, so will have to scurry around cutting my squares when we get home on the 18th of April - just before step one arrives.  I printed up a picture of the kit to give me an idea of color values and will go from there.  I think this will be fun and will make a quilt perfect to use on a twin-size bed/couch in our back room.  Since I bought the 1 yd. piece for me and the colors go with our dark rusty-orange (darker than living room) rug, I HAVE to keep it, at least until I make one I like better.

Annie, your fabrics are warm tones, you might try interviewing some backgrounds that are off white.  Your background now is white with grey and that grey is a cool tone.

I think I'm going to dig through my fabrics--I have TONS of squares that I used to use for baby quilts.  I'm going to base mine on blues.  Different prints/patterns, etc.  And I'm going to randomly toss in a few other colored squares, just to break up the blues.  We'll see what I can find in my tubs this weekend.

For the background, I have a white flannel that has blue polka dots all over it. 

No clue on the border yet...it will depend on what I can pull for my main fabrics. 

Wow, though....628 squares!  That's a lot of pieces.  I don't think I've ever made a quilt with so many pieces.  I am a little intimidated.
