    Florence, you fabrics will be perfect, and knowing your tastes, I think you will be happy with the order you have them in.

    And so glad to see so many of you are already on board for this new mystery. Paulswalia, love the idea for a dresser scarf to match the quilt!

    And there is no rule that you need to finish an old mystery before beginning a new one! So just dig in and go for it!

    I'm so ready to jump on board. I will pick out my fabric later this week and group everything together for next week. I'm so excited. See everyone at the train station next week, Bye for now.

    Oh dear.....I have no use for a table runner and don't really care to make one. Trying to think if I know of anyone else who does so I could make it as a gift. If not then I will be the cheer leader up in the food car.....lol I was going to say the observation car but I would get so distracted by the scenery I would forget why I was there. Although picking the food car may not be a good idea either......although I could sample everything before everyone else and let you know which one is the best.

    I'm jumping on the caboose as it pulls out of my station. I like the idea of holiday too, so am thinking of 4th of July, red, white and blue. Fourth color ???, maybe another shade of one of the others. Or maybe a total neutral like gray or black? Or silver for pizzazz? Have to go shopping.

    Judy, this really is a mystery because the instructions before have included what fabrics have to go with others for contrast or matching. This time, no. That's very very interesting.

    I too have yet to finish the scrappy but don't want to miss the beginning of this trip.

    I also have no where to use a table runner .... but, I'm game to try this out anyway and maybe I'll have a gift to "stash" away for that unexpected housewarming or something. Off to my "cat-cave" to see what fabric combo I can come up with!

    Thanks Judy for taking us all on another ride!

    I'm in--haven't participated in any event on this board yet, so it's time to take the plunge with a smaller project. I'm going with 4th of July--red, white, blut and gold. I'll post a pic later this week. Ready to get on that train--I love to travel

    Oh JUDY, here we go again & I am so ready!! I love your idea of a Christmas gift for the end of this year. It is always so nice to be ahead of the game. For me, I can always make table runners for either myself or my grown children & their families. Now I must go digging through my stash. Thank you so much.
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    *squeeeee* I've been waiting and WAITING for this. lol. Thanks Judy, me luvs trains.


    I've never made a table runner either, so here is a new one for me. I think I'm going to go with some muted colors for the kitchen table. Hm. Although I do like the idea of the red, white and blue...decisions, decisions.

    Oh and I'm bringing some Riesling for the sweet foods in the club car

    I'm also thinking it's a good idea to get a head start on Christmas. Can't start today but maybe tomorrow. I'm so anxious to see what Judy has in store for us this time!

    I'm busy packing ready for this train ride, I so enjoyed the last one. Judy you must have known I have just redecorated my dining room and was thinking a table runner would finish it off perfectly. Going to have a look at my stash, I have lots of fat quarters would they be suitable or does the fabric need to be WOF? Will leave some of my triple chocolate brownies and some nice English Breakfast tea in the club car.

    Ok, I need help on this one with colors. I like the first four, but...something is missing. I like some of the second four pieces, but not all.

    Two views of 1-4.

    Two views of 5-8. The greens can be used on either side, one side has the strong pattern, the other has a light showing of it through the green.

    Wheeee!!!!! I'm running for the train as it leaves the station! I have a bunch of fabric picked out and in my bag, so will go through them and pick some. I might make two -- one in Christmas fabrics and the other in ???? This will be a blast. Oh, I made a batch of cinnamon raisin cookies to go along with Judy's cider in the club car. See you there.

    paulswalia - love the idea of a dresser scarf

    Ssulabug - Cheryl, I am NEVER EVER ahead of the game on gift making so this is a first for me LOL

    Shadowirish - no reason you can't make both, and put them together and make it a reversible runner

    reesky - no reason a kitchen table can't sport a patriotic theme! As to your fabrics, I would stear away from a strip like you are showing.

    reeskylr, I really like the first four just as they are. The second four don't do it for me. The orange in the stripe and the pink in the floral aren't there, IMO, and you have a yellow green and a blue green together.

    I think our problem comes in only four fabrics. Six or so is easier.

    I can't post a picture right now, but I can scan my fabrics into the computer. I will do it when I return from shopping. Two of my are low contrast and I'd like some input.

    choices

    I have 2 sets picked out that I think I am going to use. I love table runners and use them all the time in my kitchen, dining room, coffee table in the living room and in the enclosed patio on that table too. So fun. Change them for every season and every holiday I just think it adds a little something. And they make great gifts. Here's what I'm thinking for 2 runners:Name:  DSCF1195.JPG

    Jaba, those are very pretty combinations.

    Createfourpaws, I like the first one the best but either set would make a pretty table runner.

    Here are my selections. I have enough yardage for A, B, and D to switch them around if I choose but I only have 1/4 yard of C. This is my second mystery quilt train ride and my first table runner.

    Well it's only 9 mos till Christmas and if you count on mailing it somewhere so it can be enjoyed during the entire season - what can I say - it's never too early to start those projects (finished) so actually we only have about 7 months!
    Looking forward to this one - Thanks Judy oh I made almond bark it's in the club car. Tour thru Miami this weekend and bring your parka its cold here!
