Nice to see there will be a few of us doing this.  I also will be making the smaller one.

I will be doing the 75 x 75. This will be a gift and they don't have a king size, I am happy about that. I think the smaller will be enough of a challenge.

My brain is saying no, no, no.  You already have too much on your plate....But I sent the color sample numbers in with DH as he works at Lowes.  I'm going to try and do this one too.  My heart is happy. I'd like to use up scraps and my older stash for this one.  After taking two of her workshops, she throws every fabric and I mean everything into her quilts. I think I'll be going for the larger size but we will see. Can't wait to see what everyone decides to use.

Happy to see quite a few are doing this and have decided on the smaller size.  I used to always choose the larger one then get upset on how much it cost to get it quilted.  So smaller is better for me on this one ... Now to just nail down those color choices :)

I'm in too.  I'm thinking I'll do the smaller quilt.  I really like the colors she picked.  Will be "shopping" my stash this weekend to see what I can find!

Thanks, Nana.  I thought you would put something on here for Bonnie's quilt.  I stumbled upon it this this morning in her chat and printed out the introduction.  I probably will not have time to work on this now because of having so much else to do.  I probably won't have Tranquility done for the voting because of Rich's surgery monday and everything else that is going on here.  Soon he will be on his feet again with his new hip and will be riding with our substitute driver and "out of my hair" so I can finally quilt!!!  He won't need me then because he will be doing MY job - the paperwork that he hates!!!

I will keep up with everyone else's quilts because at least I will be home playing nurse to Rich so I can get on the computer!

I will keep you and Rich in my prayers for his upcoming surgery.  I hope that he recuperates quickly so that he will be able to get out of your hair.

I am going to try this mystery quilt as well.   I will have to check my stash to see if I will be limited to the smaller size or not.  I do not have a lot of yellow and orange but plenty of blue and green.  I look forward to seeing what others are going to use.

These look really good.  I have so many scraps that I'm going to be using I don't think I'll post pictures but I have started to gather them up.  Now if I could just find a clear spot in my sewing room to keep them.......

Dardar, your fabrics are looking good. The one I might change is the top orange/gold one, it's kind of close in color to some of your yellows.

I pulled out fabrics to see what  might use. I like these first brighter colors on white or on black background. But I may use the other colors because I need a more mellow "guy" quilt.

Nice choices dardar.  What are you using for your neutrals?

Nice choices Jacy.  I like the black background the best, then the top first one (white multi) is my second choice.  

I went to the fabric store and got 1/4 yard cuts of the colored fabrics and will work on the neutrals in the next week.

I will post pics of the fabrics soon if they aren't difficult to post.
