    Well good morning ladies!!! I am jumping on the train with the rest of you. This will be my very first train ride and looking forward to the ride Our local hospital sent out a plea for some hospice quilts so I will be doing the larger size. I leave on the 11th for a 4 day quilt retreat. If I get my cutting done by then I can sew it together at the retreat. Hope to have pictures to show all of you on the 17th !!!

    Coopah - Meet you at the stop closest to your home! We will send pics along the way, also!

    Belfry - you will need borders to get to the size you are looking to make.

    Adamae, happytab and carrot -- welcome to our new passengers on the Mystery Train

    Francie, we all sympathize -- and none of us OCDers can understand those who need to finish A before starting B

    Sulabug, welcome back. As to the 4" squares, can't see why not, but you will have to adjust everything else as you go along. Don't cut anything until you get to that week's clue, and I think you will be able to figure out how to cut the other pieces as we go along.

    Sustraley -- thank you thankyou, you are so sweet.

    OOOOOO coopah - what happened - thought you were along for this ride too -- we will miss you.

    Brand Spankin' New Here...

    Hi all! Belfrybat posted about his challenge on another board. I've never done any type of mystery quilt, or quilt along, so I was intrigued! This sounds so exciting! I was looking for another sewing/quilting forum to frequent, and I do believe I've found a dandy! I look forward meeting, talking and quilting along with you! Thank you for having me! I'm excited to see what this challenge will create. Tracy.

    Just my luck, I have lots of 3 1/2" blocks, I am sure I can use those, it just won't be as large. So I am off to cut some 4 1/2" strips and some 4 1/2" blocks out of larger scraps. Count me in, I have some great scraps and I just picked up a new supply of fabric on Friday. I know what I will be doing today.

    Oh by the way, I have a new bottle of Cabernet Savignon, some dark chocolate from The Alps in Fishkill, NY, and a pot of homemade vegetable soup on the stove. Good thing I finished that Fat Quarter Bag UFO, it will definitely hold all my fabric and the above provisions.

    See you all on board!

    Aurora any left overs for breakfast/ I mean if you ate all the soup fine just a glass of cab with dark chocolates oh that sounds like making these scraps match much better. I even contemplated dontlaugh guys making one patch all red squares one all blues at least they are color matched lol.. I will go for it and just sew them. I love the look of scrap quilts but well gotta jump in sometime and try new things. It willbe lovely. especially after I have cabernet and coffee with coconut rum. oh boy yes it will. making cheeter cheese danish this morning. super easy and super not low cal but well who needs to count calories when your burning billions making 4.5 inch squares right? right. finishing this cup of coffee and will be sewing those puppies together shortly!

    happyjunker, welcome, we always have a good time here.

    Aurora, welcome. And your foodie choices will fit right in!!!

    Elisa, you need to just close your eyes and grab those scraps! We need you to be more adventurous, don't we? Come on, gals, tell her how much fun scrappy can be. And how beautiful!

    Elisabrat,

    Soup is still cooking. Coffee and coconut rum, I just purchased a travel first aid kit, will throw it in my bag as well. Sounds like we might have a use for a bandage or two.

    I know what I will be doing this afternoon. I have no fires to put out for a change.

    I am envious of all of you who cut your scraps into squares as you go along. I spent 2 hours last night cutting out squares and now have 35. Looks like I might have to cut into my regular stash to get enough different blocks.
