    Can we make a pit stop on the train in a state where it's above freezing? I am pondering jumping aboard. I have a pile of Joanne's coupons that need to be used. Now I just need to convince my DSIL to jump aboard. She made a beautiful quilt for the last train ride. I showed her how to quilt and now she is better than me at it.

    Just went to quilt show in NJ where I met Kaffe Fassett (my favorite designer), picked up some fabric, and filled my mind with amazing quilts. I am so-o ready to begin. I use table runners all the time. xoxo to Judy

    Good idea. #2 was a baby quilt size. I didn't do #1 so I can't tell you about it Elisabrat.

    Cindy, I like the first set. The florals are fighting in the second one. Of course, the pretty coral is winning.

    RJ, those are gorgeous.

    Above freezing? It will in single digits here tonight if it isn't already.

    Ok...I'm in again! Always have so much fun doing your mysteries, Judy. Thanks for doing another one. Gotta send a reminder to my daughter in N.C. & one to a dear friend in Australia (love how we can all stay in touch doing things like this together--thanks to the internet ). Will see about fabric selection tomorrow.

    Glad to be on board again too Judy. I haven't made a table runner yet so I'm intrigued. I'll look in my stash but then this is a good excuse to go shopping again! Thanks Judy!
    Everyday is a good day for Quilting!

    Hi Cindy,
    What do you mean don't shop in your stash again? I live to far away from you to shop in your stash. What color's do you think you will use for this project? I just might have the same ones, we'll have to wait & see. Have fun picking out your fabric's, I can hardly wait to see what you are going to use!!
    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    I jumped on the train just before Stew. Haven't finished #4 but my blocks are done & actually had enough precut squares in my scrap cuts to do more than 1. Love them so far and all the finishing pieces are cut & ready to sew. Thanks Judy for such great stash busters!

    What I mean is that your stash & my stash are so close that I always see cloths in your projects that I have. At least I know who to go to if ever I'm short on something! I'll go explore my stash later today & post my colors.

    I am happy to hear there are no rules about finishing one before starting the next. LOL I am still working on the one before the last one. And trying to get my "curved illusion" log cabin done up. So when I finish a round of the log cabin I go back to the mystery and on and on. Since my dog sleeps on our coffee table, she's a wee thing, I think the table runner will go to son. He has no goggies. Have to look for some more manly browns perhaps and toss in a blue. Hmmm thinking, thinking. LOL my dining room table will never be cleared enough for a runner. Guess what's on it. Rulers, gadgets and those sort of things need to be close at hand when I sew in the kitchen. I do have a dedicated room but like to be out here so I can watch two TV's. Is that bad ??? Have a great day. Retta from still way too cold Florida. Come on sun.

    WhitePine, I like your idea of using Patriotic colors. I was just looking at our County Fair Floral Hall Schedule for 2013 and noticed a category for a Patriotic item; I think I will take this opportunity to get an item finished for that entry. Thanks for the idea. Definitely need to purchase a couple of fabrics.

    [QUOTE=jaba;5899412]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:Attachment 399272Attachment 399273[/QUO

    I love both of your fabric choices. Seeing your fabric choices has given me an idea for my fabric. Thanks

    Thanks Judy for taking us all on another ride!
    Hey COAM, you could enlarge the runner a bit and have a "cat spot." You know the place where they always like to be...when they aren't interrupting your sewing!
    To those who want warm weather, you'll have to keep moving south. It is blasted cold here...the wind really bites! Mom comes home from hip replacement rehab and what a bummer to have it be so cold. Judy...I'm in for this one. Love, love, love table runners! They get finished!! Thanks for getting the train and brains working!

    Judy, I am on board. Great idea to start on Christmas, my most favorite time of the year. This has come at a perfect time since I can pickup what I need at the Dallas Quilt Show on Friday.

    Thanks for all your hard work.

    I came up with 2 options (A fabric on the left). I'm leaning toward the second one, with the black. What do you think? Believe it or not, the rightmost fabric is the same in both pictures!

    Great choices, everyone. It's supposed to be well above freezing -- 80-85 -- here today and tomorrow,and I know for sure the train is stopping here as I forgot to pack a couple of things, and I bribed the engineer to make a loop through Texas. Tequila and a smile goes a long way around these parts.

    Kathy - I'm partial to the first picture, but only because I love blue.

    coopah -- no cats (except me!) allowed in the house! My barn cat, Ike, would love it though, I'm sure! The dogs would, however, make short work of anything shreadable!

    Good morning Everyone! Sorry I'm late - spent all day yesterday with my DH running errands.... can't complain as he did let me stop at not one but TWO quilt shops!! TRust me that was a really big deal for him! Love the table runner idea Judi! I like making them for my DMIL and use Insul Bright so that it may be used as a large pot holder for family gatherings... have a few non-quilting projects I have to get done but plan on working on this in-between! Thanks Judy for the wonderful Train Rides! Now to go down and check out my newly organized stash!! Woo Hoo!!
