Yes.  I'm interested to see what kind of pattern you come up with.  The prints next to the zebra pattern now look a bit busy, I'm thinking. Maybe the stripes you're talking about might be better?  But, I'm not the designer, and I'm always happy with what you come up with!!

I have enough fabric to play around a little bit.   It was hard to see the size of the print in the pictures, we'll just have to see what happens.   The zebra will be here next week, and I have til fall to figure it out.

Out of curiosity I checked UPS tracking and surprise, surprise my package is arriving a day early...
A small shipment of fabric, that includes:  some zebra print to try with the zebra fabric, some cute hearts on blue (two different shades, thought one might work the elephant fabric, if not, it's pretty darn cute), some snowflake print with gold trim, a cat print, and a blue butterfly print.   Oops, almost forgot, there is a Horse panel print in there too.  Might be something else in there too, but I can't remember at the moment.   Just happy UPS is coming early.

Think I have the right fabrics to start this quilt.   Made up a few sample blocks with the fabric I bought hoping it would go, then laid them out with the focus fabric.   Not sure I like the floral print, but the color is right, so probably will go with it anyway.
We are experiencing thunderstorms, so not much I can do outside, so might do a little sewing while the power is one, we've had at least one power outage a day with this storm system.

While I don't normally sew in the summer, it's been raining a lot the last week, so I've been sewing a bit, and managed to get a bit more done on the bright quilt, and I think I like it.  It's not quite as bright in real life as it photographs.

Thank you.

It's only been 5-6 weeks, since I last posted here.  Time got away from me, and I need to finish up a patriotic quilt for guild by the 5th, so I sewed my blocks together on the Laurel Burch top (will need to add borders before it's ready for quilting), so I could fold it up and set it aside to finish up the patriotic quilt.  The patriotic quilt needs the borders added to make it big enough, then quilting and binding before the 5th.  I can do it. 
[After it's done, I'll start the first of 4 commissioned quilts before getting back to the Laurel Burch. Might even have one done by October quilt meeting to show off, they will all be done in time for Christmas.]
