    What a great idea!! Thank you! I am making a rectangular shaped table topper and will be adding about 10" to two sides. I'm sure I can use those squares.

    Darn, I hope my machine gets back from servicing soon. Jen you are going to be ahead of me, but can't wait to see the "geese" flying.

    I did it again today - while waiting for the train I put some clothes in the washer. YES, there was a kleenex in there somewhere. You would think at this age, I would learn to check every pocket - NO. I didn't think that was in the job application. Oh well, life goes on, and this is the reason for the vacc and broom.

    Take care ladies, happy sewing.

    I'm so anxious to get back to sewing. (still not able to cut or sew since my carpal tunnel surgery on Monday.)
    I have two boom swaps to make blocks for, a quilt for my swap partner, and of course, these wonderful mystery quilts (still working on the Orca Bay one)--and wouldn't you know I found another mystery quilt (I need another project like a hole in the head!!). Sew many projects, sew little time!!

    OOOOOOOhhhhhh Judy, help. Here is a pic of my C fabric on my A fabric. I have only sewed one side and it is not cut and only finger pressed so I could show you. Not much difference. My question: I am pretty sure I shouldn't use this combo, can I use one of the other fabrics twice or should I pick a fabric not in the rest of the quilt? All my A's and other fabrics are cut and sewed. I will hold these in reserve till I hear from you.

    Ooooo they are close, aren't they?
    Florenjce, I went back and looked at your colors. Perhaps you could use another of your mid-range of blues? I think you could get away with adding a different blue. If not I'd definately use one of the blues again.
    Or you could audition a yellow fromf the flowers and see how that would look.

    quess.....what......did that message change in mid-air

    this is a very mysterious/mistivious train

    Jenni watch out for those geese, they peck you to pieces

    i confess to guesseing some but do not know which way geese fly (city girl)

    my best guess is the four 3 1/4 squares are for corners

    That message sure did change. It's a magic train. That only adds to the mystery.

    Thank you Judy. I will change it to something else then I will post a pic.
