Thanks guys!

MareMare - the Ghastlie ghouls... with pink and grey - so great!!  Pink is one of my favorite colors, so I'm a little biased, but the combo with the grey and gothic feel... so cool

Spock is awesome too.  I want to try the pattern, but I''m intimidated.  Its it mostly solids?  Did you use a lot of variety in the fabrics or just stick to a few for dark and a few for light?

I honestly think the more the better. I got really sick with using some of the fabrics partway through and bought a few random remnants. Also, if you don't have enough variety, when you start sewing sections together you'll see a lot of the same fabric lining up with the same fabric from another section, which kinda bugged me. I used a few solids but my stash is made up of more patterns and I just used what I had (aside from the few remnants that I mentioned, and that was mostly because I was doing an all day sew with my quilt guild in the big fabric store here, so it was a little too convenient to go "hey, I'm going to take a few steps that way and see what I can add to my quilt!")

Brown and Beige seems just like a monochromatic brown scheme. It could look pretty neat.

Oh DUH!!!! I just realized I have not kept up with following this board at all!  You guys are doing amazing things.  The quilts you are turning out are fantastic.  I'm going to go put thumbnails on my list post and then do better at keeping up.  

edit... A quick link to my list.  If we are counting small projects then I am technically done with my 12.
