What about a two color quilt? Khaki and red???

The stripes in the secondary sashing seem to be an even number, so the color placement around the stars in the cornerstones would need to be tweaked.
Love that Margo!

My computer printout was also missing the first four colors. The rest of the colors came out fine, so I know it was not that the ink was low, printer was broken, computer connected to the printer, etc. Any ideas what could have happened? I can't figure it out (of course I'm not a computer whiz).

Terrina, if you saved the PDF file with the colors when it fist came out there was an issue with the solids printing in grey scale. That has now been corrected. Please download the new file from the website and try printing again.

Okay here's my first try at my colorway. I didn't color all the flowers, but my plan is to use multiple color combinations on those. I may change a few more colors along the way since I'm going to shop my stash for this quilt. Note that I am going to make a smaller version of this.

I printed the Fabric requirements, and my printer did not print the colors correctly (missing some red ink...), so the flowers turned out yellow, and I have to admit, it looks like I found MY colorway! So, turquoise/aqua for the background, and different shades of yellow/yellow-orange for the flowers, plus a few greens for the leaves, stem, etc. This will not be a scrappy look, but I intend to use more than 4 greens, more than 4 yellows - but only 4 turquoise. Ordered from Jinny Beyer Studio, can't wait to get started!


Serendipity! :D

Here's my outline drawing. I enjoyed doing this but don't expect a repeat next year. Hopefully all of the lines join so you won't get any surprises. I did check the background and the color stayed where it was supposed to, but I didn't check all of the little pieces. I tend to work on a project until it's done unless I get distracted or something more important comes up, so that's why I finished so quickly. Now it's time to eat my lunch, leftovers from last night, and move on to other things. Have fun coloring!

Thanks!!!!! I'm planning to use the Ricky Tim's hand dyed fabrics in my stash, which aren't my usual color palette, and had not yet decided which color to put where. This will surely help with my decision.

Thank you Annis and Rosemary - you beat us to the punch! How I love this community! (she says as she works on the fabric situation right now)

Yeah Annis and Rosemary. Thank you. I opened the outlines in gimp and am having so much fun with the colors. This is too neat. I should be doing year end payroll reports (we have our own business and I am the entire office staff), but there is always tomorrow.

Rosemary, I used the photo in the December fabric instructions. It was almost square.

For a Mac, click on the photo, then drag it to the desktop. At least that's how it works on mine.

First left click on the picture.
Next right click on the picture - you will get a small box of options up - choose 'save picture as' and left click - make sure you see where it is put (probably under my pictures)
You should then be able to find it and carry on playing either by printing it out or opening it in windows paint or any other drawing programme you use

This is presuming you are using Windows - if you are on Mac you will have to wait for someone else to come along and help :wink:

Good morning all! I have been trying to copy/paste the drawings that Annis and Rosemary had very nicely provided, but I'm unable to do so. I did try to do a search for the steps, such as 'lined drawing', but nothing came up. :? If someone could help me with the correct name to do a search that would be perfect. I'm sure it will be a "palm to the forehead" moment, when I find the answer!

Have a great day!

Annis, I have a drawing tablet (Trust rather than Wacom) so I was using a 'pencil', but because the quilt in the picture isn't quite square - you only find that out when you start trying to put the long straight lines on - I ended up drawing the whole thing, no cut & paste for me 'cause it probably wouldn't have fit :roll: But I did find out how to draw straight lines between 2 points on Gimp, so I am super pleased with that 8) . What I haven't done is check to see if mine is safe to 'bucket fill' on the computer, but you should be safe printing and using old fashioned colouring pencils :wink:
