    not a rumor! she wrote and told me, guess I bugged her enough to get her to think about starting one now she is ready after the holidays to get going on it. she has a lot of work preparing those darn things all the clues the photos and obviously has to have hers totally finished before she can show us how to finish..we need to put something in the kitty for her for all the time she puts into this.. here kitty kitty Judy needs something..

    I'm looking fwd to judy's next mystery as well. so far I've done 3 (1 still has to be quilted) This one was the 3rd train trip I think. I made it for my daughter who has 4 Labradors and shows them, so I appliqued a big picture I made of her 3 chocolate labs and put on it. (the 4th lab is black)Name:  Mystery quilt.jpg

    M-Fay, I love it.. They are such big babies..lol I love the hoot owls in the background, adorable..

    Count me in right behind Brat, I've done all the mysteries too.. I kinda get motion sickness so I'm usually the quiet one on the ride.. Maybe I'll take a Bonine for motion, but then I'll want to sleep!! Not sure how that mixes with wine. lolo I'll be there regardless.. Thanks Judy..

    I wrote and asked Judy as well. I've never been a part of one, but I would like to try.

    OH I am so happy. I am anxiously waiting for January to come. I will be right behind Brat, pushing her on the train. I am also camping out with frenchfryqueen so that we can be the first to get on. Don't want to be left behind. Yeah JUdy for all your work on doing this.

    Thank you! I really enjoy doing the mystery quilts and you are all so supportive of my designs. I took some time off because I had done 5 mysteries in about 15 months, and was a bit brain dead after the last one finished! So now I have had the summer to rejuvenate my gray matter and have a new desing in mind and just need to start the prototype. See you in January, hopefully around the 4th.

    OK I didn't do the table runner because I don't use them but let me tell you all......I really missed being on the train. So what ever Judy decides to make, I am doing it. Oh boy January hurry up.

    YEAH! I didn't get to jump on the table runner train ride but I have been lurking here enjoying all of the beautiful runners. My goal for the year was to finish 2 UFO's for each new project I started. I did pretty well this past year. My UFO pile is dwindling down. I was hoping for a mystery to try to tame some of my stash. I have several major complicated projects I am hoping to start next year and needed a side project. I have had the fabric for a bargello for a year and plan to start it after Christmas. THe mystery will be a good project to do on the side when the bargello is making me crazy. I have never done a bargello and have picked out a pretty complicated one to make.
    I think some cranberry orange muffins and some hot chocolate sound like a good snack while we wait.
    Judy thanks so much for doing this.

    The fun part of these is watching all of your creations grow.. we all have those same instructions and yet the end results astound me.. some color combos I wonder at then as we keep going its like WOW that really does work. Judy does a good job explaining color value choices.. I am sitting here waiting, waiting.. patiently too (ok I suck at patient and freely admit it, downfall I know...).. I need to make a quilt for my soon to be son in law and hopefully this will hit the spot. I figure one year, for me to get the top done, if I do it myself. Here your much more disciplined and the time frame pushes me to do it much faster which I LOVE. then its just to get it quilted. and that I send to Jaba to do so it is done quickly and well. I know I will finish by summer the whole project and for me.. that is awesome so bring it on Judy! whip me into shape!! lol... I can hardly wait. I am working on round robins right now and learning about so many other ways to finish a quilt so even if its not a large quilt we make here you can enlarge them so easy with different borders going around them.. and make a center really stand out. (plus well make your quilt bigger pretty fast too lol). yippppeeee we are getting CLOSER to Jan.. and a new mystery.

    I know we are all excited to do a mystery train quilt with Judy. Time is flying by and soon it will be here! I am considering doing a round robin quilt here for everyone to join. We will make our own quilts but each month there will be a new border to go around our centers. I think its an excellent way to play with borders, teach yourself how to make them, see what others are chosing and how color plays in them.. I joined three this fall. I am learning so much and finding how truly enjoyable they are too look at as they grow. By making one for yourself you can explore new things too! would anyone be interested in this? You can end up with a pretty quilt in the process of trying new things!

    I would be interested in a round robin. I wondered what they were. Sounds fun to try something new.

    Not sure how a round robin would work on this, but this does sound interesting, will keep an eye open.
