Slothy,  It is fantastic.  I love it.  Silly old quilt police. 

Colors don't match and I don't care
Colors don't match and I don't care
Colors don't match and I don't care

Your matchy matchy hurts my eyes.

Really stuck for a verse on this one...

great quilts everyone. I so wanted to get my WIP done this month, its only straight line stitch in the ditch quilting and since its roddler size its not a great deal of binding, but it just didn't happen. Sad

stupid quilting police! I was at the fabric store once getting random cuts of sale fabrics and was asked incredulously 'what are you making with all this??!' when i replied i was just collecting fabrics that i liked and said that i probably had plenty to go with them at home he said 'oh you should buy all the fabric for a project together so you get matching collections with the same dye run'. I was like um thanks for that advice. I'll take my chances with my random collection! Cheesy

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

Some people do go from shop to shop looking for the same dye lot...  how they know the numbers in the first place boggles my mind.

I knew about dye lot for yarn, I never even thought about it for fabric. Of course, I don't necessarily care if the fabric I use is from the same collection. I mix and match using whatever looks good to me.

I think dye lot only matters for something like Kona if you are using solids for the background of a quilt. A friend got two different dye lots (because she ran out mid-project and ordered more online) and it was extremely noticeable, but that's kind of rare I think.

Jinty,  you've got some really intriguing quilt names.  I can't wait to see what they really mean.

Hey all, I am trying to make sure I got everyone who completed the challenge down, if you completed a WIP off your list by 1/31 and I didn't get it, please let me know. Remember there will be one winner for oldest WIP, and one winner drawn randomly out of everyone who completed.

If I have you listed below, but no link, that means I could not find a pic. Without a pic you will not be entered in the drawing. You have through Feb 3rd to post your pic and let me know.

You can take me off the list. The purse I made was not a WIP.

But I do need to get pics up. I made another quilted purse last weekend.

Mine weren't WIPs either unless you count having the material for over a year as a WIP.
