    Oh, man! I'm still sewing my squares together from the 1st clue. haha I haven't done a mystery for a while and I was late getting on the train but I'm trying to catch up. Now your moving on to 19? Man, you're tuff. lol I do like the sounds of 19. My son and his wife would like the monotone. No time for snacks, gotta sew!

    SusieQ sometimes what you think is wrong, turns out to be fantastic. Don't despair.

    dd there is no rush to the finish line. It is up to you to move at your own pace. Lots of time, someone posts their finished mystery a month or two after the last clue is given.

    Aurora I used to hate making HSTs until I found a method I like, and now, like you, I don't get upset with them. LOL

    Oh, I know. Mystery 16 is still hanging there with the backing. I will get to it one day. Thanks for the encouragement though.

    I ask the moderator if I could post a tute on this, and since she said a QST is public domain, no problem. Here it is. My inspiration was a gal on the mystery who said it could be done! Thanks.

    It's finally sunny out and a better day for pictures. I'm hoping to achieve a jewel toned quilt by using up some batik fabric. I did duplicate the fabrics for the second clue, hope that will be okay. Name:  MVC-098S.JPG

    I'm finished with my four square patches an about half finished with my qst's. I made mine a little differently. This is only my second quilt and I have learned a lot. I hope to post pictures soon.

    Well, I've made an executive decision here lol.

    I made my 4-patches using a lovely charm set. Still have Loads of charms left.

    This week's clue calls for 5.25 squares. 5.25 into 5.00 won't go.

    So I've decided I'm still going to make my QSTs out of these charms, and I'll trim my 4-patches down to match them. This does mean I'll have to adjust any farther clues slightly to fit as well. Hope my maths is up to the task lol. But at least I'll have got the best out of this charm pack (100 Judy Neimeyer charms.)

    I'll post a photo when I've completed the QSTs -half way there now.....

    Cheers, K

    I must be doing something wrong. I am curious about why you all don't like QST.

    JuneBillie...I thought you had made Flying Geese Curves there for a minute then I realized it was how you had the QST's set out. Beautiful colours.

    I am using all greens with cream and white. I think I will toss in black in my QST. Just trying to use what is already in my stash. I will have plenty on hand for what ever comes in the next step and finishing the trip! I think I was told that there was chocolate in the club car. I am going to check it out. Any one else coming along?

    Aurora, pour me a glass please. I think I need to step back and just look at things awhile instead of try and do.
    I do like QST, especially with the accuquilt. They make it so easy.

    Ahh, chocolate and wine for Valentines. That is just what I need. Who care about that diet.

    Judy, thanks for the encouragement. I've never done one of these and we just got new kittens so my brain is a bit scattered- but in a good way. They are so adorable

    SuzieQ, please post pics of kitties. We love kitties and puppies on this board, and of course children, etc.

    I have cut out 1/2 of my squares for the QTS. I just need to cut the white (constant) and blue (accent) color. I'm using the 4 patch technique someone posted here. It looks simple and easy to do. I found stripes already cut for my sashing (at least I figure that is what the 2.5" by 12.5" stripes are for). I'll post pics when I'm done with my blocks. The pieces looks interesting.
