Thimbleberries Fabric

So, a few weeks ago I had a pscyhobilly freakout about this Thimbleberries Challenge Quilt I was working on. You may remember the drama. You may also recognize the above pile of fabric as being from the current line of Thimbleberries fabrics. The implications of this, I assume, will not go unnoticed by the astute reader. Does it seem like an unusually large pile of fabric? It is. Not only do I have all the fabric from the Thimbleberries Block-of-the-Month quilt that I'm also working on, (but using other fabric for), but I also signed up for a fabric-included Thimbleberries weekend quilt camp (but couldn't go). Plus I might have bought a little more fabric. I mean, every time I change my mind about the way I want to make the challenge quilt I have to go buy more fabric, right? Have to. Anyway. Here's the thing. They've extended the deadline to July 1st. I have known this since, oh, about June 2nd. I have not yet worked on the challenge quilt. Given the fact that I am, oh, you know, moving in the next two weeks, this may seem like a bad time to be thinking about the Challenge Quilt. "Let it go!" I hear you all say. "We forgive you! You can use the fabric for something else! YWe don't mind. You could give it away. Bless another quiltmaker! Really, we're sure you should just give it away. You don't need the pressure and guilt hanging over your head, do you? No, you don't! And how much yardage is there exactly in total? Uh huh. And on the pink? What about the floral trellis...? Oh yes, that would work perfectly...uh...I mean, you should definitely give it away." Hah! Seriously, I don't know what to do. Thanks to all of your incredible help last time I had a neurotic episode over this quilt, I actually have some ideas. Not one, not two, but three. Three distinct and separate ideas of how to do this challenge quilt. Now my problem, aside from a severe lack of time, is that I honestly can't decide which one to make! I should just make all three, I guess. That's a good idea. Except for that IT'S DUE THIS FREAKING WEEKEND. Why do I do this to myself?
