    I think all of these runners have turned out great -- good job, everyone.

    I love the creativity of these runners...I'm working on mine, slowly...Seems other things keep creeping in to keep me from work on it!! I should have had it finished long time ago.. I'm to putting on a border, so it'll get finished one of these days..lol I love your mysteries Judy, I've made all but #4 - look forward to next one..

    Love how these have turned out!

    I'm started on one using this pattern only with larger blocks to make a throw for my friend's daughter who was injured in the fertilizer plant explosion. She is recovering nicely but has had over 1000 stitches from glass removal.

    Discovered that my fabrics do not have good contrast (all medium dark to dark) so am "having" to go shopping for ones to coordinate. Thinking I might do alternating blocks of the various combinations. Or who knows - it could end up very different from my original plan!

    mom-6, how nice of you to make the sacrifice of going to the store to buy fabric! LOL

    Seriously, though, what you are doing is very thoughtful and I am sure she will feel the love that goes into it!

    Woohoo - I finally finished the runner.. I've had it to the point of backing and binding done for sometime.. Kinda had it put back, ya know how it goes, 'outa sight, outa mind'! That's what happened...I ran onto it the other day and thought, 'hmmm, let's finish it NOW'...I didn't do the 'fancy' border, but do like how it turned out. Thanks Judy, for having me change the focus pc, I'm pleased with it. Looking forward to the next mystery..

    Thanks Sunlit - yes we're fine in my neck o' the woods..Bad storms were south of us.. It did go thru my son's work tho, pulled up trees, blew in one of the warehs. doors and scattered stuff. Tore the 2 big flags they had on big poles, they're gone! He's the transportation mgr there and works the evening shift..The tornado that went along I-40 that they talked about went right in front of Warren-Cat. We had LOTSA rain, hard rain, wind & small hail! But it's a beautiful day today..Sky is clear as clear can be. We've sure had strange weather this Spring, especially being so late. If you will look at a map of OK, find OKC and Edmond is just a hoop & holler kinda north of the city.

    Hope you have a great weekend..

    OKsewnsew, Looks great and I really like your interpretation. It looks like a whole different pattern.

    Well, ended up using a completely different pattern for Misty's quilt. Still need to do quilting on it and on this runner.

    Very festive! I wasn't able to go on this trip, although I went and bought fabric...maybe one day I'll be able to find time to make this. Stages of life are interesting.

    There is so much going on, so I haven't been able to go along for the ride either. I have all of the mystery train rides saved. One day, I hope to get going on them. They are all so beautiful. Great job everyone!!

    Blessings!

    Rip Van Winkle finally woke up and got around to finishing the runner. I got side tracked and put the pieces away in a box, and just found them last week while looking for something else. Since my table is small I needed to remove the borders. Each of the blocks are the same but different. I am going on a retreat next week so will take this with an finish it. I think I will bind it in the teal fabric, for just a little more pop of color.

    As you can see if I made it any bigger it would be a table cloth for our table.
