    I am not at home right now so I can not take a picture. I have a whole dresser drawer filled with Kaffe and Tula fabrics, mostly fat quarters but some scraps. (My "studio" is a bedroom with the machines in a large walk in closet.) I am looking forward to this project.
    I knew Barbara would come up with a way to do machine piecing instead of all hand work.

    I took a photo of the new fabrics that I've picked up in the past month or so as well as my cabinet showing all the batiks that I already have tucked away. The 3 light pieces on the new fabric photo at the bottom are what I'm planning on using for the pale blocks in the new BOM. I was too lazy to move my serger out of the way of the cabinet so I took the photos through the glass which was probably not the best way to do it. I didn't realize that the cabinet on the other side of the room and an envelope with a pattern inside would show up like ghosts on the glass. I always thought I had lots of blues but when I started putting fabric in the cabinet it turned out I had more greens than anything else. I'm pretty sure I have more fabric in a pile somewhere from a couple quilts I did with Ricky Tims that never made it back to the cabinet. I'll have to dig those out as well.

    Yes, they will work. Supplement with a few solids to calm things down a bit.

    I got these African prints from a lady that was clearing out her stash. I'm wondering whether or not these would work for thePick a Petal project? Any advice, Barbara or fellow quilters?

    These are mostly Alison Glass fabrics from fat quarter bundles I ordered online. Need to do some filling in. I have a fat quarter bundle of Moda Bella solids coming, but thinking I want prints. Thoughts? Best part for all these fabrics is I had gift cards so I only have $11 for shipping out of pocket thus far.

    Anxious to start my first pieced quilt! Planning to do as much hand piecing and applique as I can. Still not comfortable with my machine.
    Carole, Just another reminder of how that first wool quilt turned out. Page 63 of American Quilter Jan. issue has your Color
    My World...Home pictured. Once again. Whoo hoo to you!!!

    Love your Alison Glass fabrics. I bought a bunch of her Perle Cotton #8 Eleganza for this year Homeward Bound. I also found
    a new way to store my DMC floss on their plastic bows and the page holders can be put in a notebook. I can use all the
    organizing tools I can get. Wish my fabrics were as organized as my threads. Really looking forward to learning a lot this
    next year. I am planning on trying to Big Stitch quilt my current Homeward Bound After Dark. I am hoping I just love the
    hand stitching. HelenW

    This is a beautiful palette Carole. More light fabrics for the log cabins will help. And a few busier prints will add pizazz.
    You will love the hand piecing of this quilt.

    What a gorgeous palette! I love everything about these colors. Currently I am in love with his Dit Dots and have a quilt I have to get made using them for a new class.

    Here are my wildly beautiful Jason Yenter fabrics. I have done several of his quilts and love, love, love his color palettes.
    Now to decide on a background white, or grey or blacks tone on tone. They would probably all look good. Can't wait
    for Jan. 1, 2024. HelenW

    Found a bundle of pastels called Pastel Petals, how
    is that for a name for a quilt called Pick A Petal.
