    Pat H, did you meet 2 nice ladies named Carol and Dana on the cruise? They were teaching classes. They are also involved with the Irish quilt I am doing.

    Pat H,

    I take it there were no cruise ship malfunctions on your trip? I would have been afraid to go on a cruise with all the problems they've had lately ... and I'm slightly claustrophbic!

    Glad you had a good time!

    Pam, was that Carol Ann Waugh, by any chance? She's the only Carol that taught classes. And yes, I think there was a Dana there. this was the cruise out of New Orleans on the Navigator.

    No malfunctions, IBQLTN, at least not that I know of. It wasn't a Carnival ship!

Is this correct??? Please help

    Here is my finished table top. I rounded the corners because my sisters table is round.

    post numbers for the instructions are:
    #1,#376,#652,#653 & #655

    be sure to post pictures as you go, we all enjoy the pictures


    you might notice that some of us "branched off, a bit" in the final placement of the design elements.

    Finally got the topper finished! And I quilted it on the new 8900! I couldn't get it all in one pic, so I shot the left side, then the right side. I'm sending it to my daughter in AZ for a late anniversary present.

    Hi all,
    I did finish the runner top. It is not quilted or bound yet but if I can talk my DH into it maybe he will take a picture and make it a posting size. In the mean time I have to say I have loved this experience and will look forward to more. Little boo boo's happen it live just turn them into something else and go again. I still had to make some adjustments as I have an eye disease so my cutting is not always the best. No nothing can help believe me. I see crooked and that is that so I adjust and live around it I do let it fence me in. I hope I can post the picture of my top before too long. Thanks Judy for the ride. Looking forward to the next ride.

    I was planning on taking this train ride but things got in the way. I have been lurking here enjoying all of the beautiful table runners. Great work everyone I look forward to the next ride. I donated my quilt from the last train ride to the school carnival. It raised quite a bit of money. The school principal won it. She bought $30 worth of chances. I am glad someone who desperately wanted it won. The school where I work is pretty low income so this money will come in handy for the little extras for the kids.

    Meanmom, that is fantastic news. Glad your quilt was able to raise money at the school carnival.

    I'm still plugging along on the table runner--lots of other sewing goin on as well, so it takes too long Maybe I'll be quilting it by next weekend. Love all the different ones posted--great jobs ladies.

    LJannoie, yes, there will be another mystery, but not for a few months. I will post something here on this 5th mystery with a link to the new one. So if you subscribe to the thread, you will get the message when I post a new one.

    I did 5 mysteries in 13 months, I really need a break LOL but I love doing them, so there will definately be a new mystery.

    Got the queen size T-shirt quilt done for grandson; http://www.quiltingboard.com/quiltin...196192-75.html (posting #749)...I did a craftshow yesterday (did well)...so thought I'd finish something easy...so here's the runner, all quilted & bound. 4 more to go! Needed that little break...now to quilt & bind a twin size for him. It's the original quilt I made him (Bonnie Hunter's Double Delight I did as a quiltalong back in 2005)...took this long to get it quilted. Daughter sprung the T-shirt quilt on me about 6 months ago...guess I DO love that boy! Used some scraps on the back of runner...will decide at a later date what to do with the mis-cut triangles.

    I just finished quilting my on-point off-the-tracks version of this table topper. I did as you all suggested, and "birthed" it instead of binding. That worked out pretty well. I did some FMQ on the blocks, and found a decorative stitch on my machine to use for the brown borders.
