So, I've got to narrow it down.  I really like the 2 on the very ends & the kinda red one.  The one in the middle is really a little more beige than it looks, with white polka dots.  Gotta do some measuring & see which ones will be enough for the cutting instructions.  The one on the very right will be my background fabric since it's about 4 yards.  I hope the one on the very left can be worked in.

Those are pretty, Beve... remember you'll need something for borders so that one on the left may fit in just fine.

Here's mine... I put it on the other page... probably shouldn't have.  Sorry, Nana :)

I'm still not 100% sure I'm doing this quilt but if I do, these are the fabric I'll most likely use unless someone thinks the one of the left has too big of a print.  I was surprised to find 3 big enough pieces in my stash that go together!

I answered on the other thread too.  I think these are going to be pretty.  Once your print is cut you will have mostly just color variation.

okay thiese are the fabrics I picked.  The greyish blue is the background, the yellow is #1 and then the peachy like is #2. There is some pebble fabric that I really wanted to use ( because of who it is for. I think I will use that as a border so I didn't purchase it yet until I know what I want to do with the border. My plan is to keep this one small so lets see how I do at that.

Thanks, Debbie!  I thought about adding some green, but I didn't find any I liked that I thought there would be enough of.  I'm sure I'll have to buy some fabric for the border. :)

I know what you mean.  What do you mean you're waiting on a machine?  Do you need a longarm?  A regular machine?  Are you sharing one?  I know someone who was trying to sell her longarm... not sure if she still has it or not but I could find out!

OK, I have picked my fabrics, not too "tranquil" but tranquil for me.   Kaffe Fassett is never tranquil but I just love the fabrics and have tons in my stash.  Now all I have to do is figure out the cutting when we are using the strip tube ruler.  If I understand correctly, all we are doing is change the 3 7/8" strips to 3" strips.  Nana, help!

Then I am thinking of using the pale yellow with a pale green for the borders.

I love your fabrics.  Those are pretty calm for Fassett.    If you are using the strip tube ruler just cut all the 3 7/8" strips at 3" and then don't cut them into squares.  You may have to cut a couple more strips when we get to the HST step.   I think I ended up cutting and extra strip but I don't remember which fabric it was.
