    I think Judy said so long as all of yours are all cut the same way everything will be ok.

    Mystery Train Material

    This is what I am working with. When you come to my house you will read my sign before entering my house. Criticising my quilting is not allowed. I am not very good at picking out colors for quilting yet.

    Why on earth would anyone criticise you here? Some of us posted possible colour combinations and asked for feedback, but that isn't criticism. Your colours reflect your taste and so are always perfect!

    WebCam picture may not show it well but the colors match very nice, the one does have a floral in it but I am hoping it will blend nicely, because I am not Frogging those puppies!

    and ShiAnnF I like your selection of fabrics! There are not quilting police here, (I am so glad, I would go to cut off corner jail for sure!) but if you ask for help it will be given! Judy is the best because she just gives us advice on how well the overall picture will look...


    But if you are interested there is an Ugly Fabric SWAP, where if you got stuck with fabric you don't like you get to trade~ sight unseen of course~ with someone else's Ugly Fabric... and the funny thing is most people got fabric they really liked, so Beauty is often times in the beholder!

    thx for the suggests today ladies. i could read what you wrote, but for some reason the laptop i have in the basement next to the sewing machine won't let me log in on the quilting board. i keep getting invalid user name or password. even tho, i take my time, and do them real careful. so i just look at pic's, and read, don't get to chat.

    i did redo that lst strip that i did wrong. no biggie. probably those long pieces are going to be the border. so thus, slants , the different way, would not matter. but , i like for my quilts to look like they should. and sometimes, just a different slant, might not catch the eye, or make it look wrong.
    i am working on the last clue., but quit tonite before i was ready to crash. off tomorrow afternoon to take my husband in for an outpatient procedure, so i have several 'jane' blocks to hand sew, while i sit and wait. suppose to take a couple hrs, before he gets into recovery. soooo, i wanted to get as much done as i could, before i had to start spending more time taking care of my ole' sweetie. 47 yrs, and counting with him.
    i am really enjoying this mystery quilt. it'll be fun to see how it turns out. thanks for the train ride judy.

    Puh-leese! Some of us on this train are just a bit goofy (but just a little bit), so no one would ever think to criticize another person traveling with us. That's just nuts. We're all friends here. Besides, I like your color combos so much, maybe I'll trade mine for yours. They are cheerful. That's what I like. Nice job. And you are way ahead of me. Still struggling with those blasted strips. You rock!
