    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.

    or a red,white and blue print for 'A' and reads almost solid Red print , RAS blue print & RAS white print

    I am so glad that we are doing a table runner as I could really use a few of those and tend to give them away faster than I make them. So to the stash for 4 fabrics.

    I have two picked out, but not sure about the Christmas focus fabric -- the design might be too large--the mouse and angel are about 2-3/4" tall. On the stars, you can't see them, but there are small medium blue stars throughout the fabric and the background is navy, not black as it show up here. Trying to decide between the light blue -- patterned or not? Thoughts anyone?

    Can't wait to get started. I was thinking about getting started on some Christmas presents early, so this is perfect.

    I was thinking about skipping this ride as I need a quilt quickly for a friend. I was hoping to use this one for her. After seeing everyones fabrics I will have to join in. I have made numerous table runners but only have 2 myself. I have been making them for my mom for all holidays for the last couple of years. I didn't know what to get for an 85 year old. SHe has fun playing with them I think she has 10 of them now. She switches them out for the seasons and different occasions and put out some of the pretty things from her china cabinet on them. I will have to go shop in my stash.
    Judy, would it work to use a couple of different fabrics in the same color family as one fabric. I'm not sure how big some of the pieces in my stash are?

    Good idea Sunliten. Right now I'm waiting to see what Judy says about Meanmom's question of using a couple of different fabrics in the same color family as one fabric, and Cannyquilter's question about needing WOF cuts. If I can use up some fat quarters it would be nice, but of course shopping is even nicer.

    Since they are table runners, I'll take two! Here's my choice of fabrics. Choices are A thru D, right to left.

    Let's see if this works. The left two are the ones I was concerned whether they'd be too close in color, but I don't think so. The print batik has quite a bit of purple and green. Thinking about looking for a light green to replace the creamy one.

    Ok I couldn't stand to not do this so I went upstairs and picked out fabrics. I have 5 that I like together. I will have to see if the pieces are big enough then eliminate one of them. I have them laying out on my cutting table to stare at for a couple of days to make sure I like the combo I have. I will try to post photos tomorrow. I need to go to bed. It is 11:00PM here and 5:20AM seems to keep coming earlier and earlier.
    Irish I like your colors. The cream color looks fine but a green would be pretty too.

    This is my first train but I'm in! Chocolate croissants all around and I'm shopping my stash since I know a few people who would like these for the holiday season. Can't wait to get started!

    irishrose either would be fine, but your fabrics are really pretty the way they are....in my opinion.

    Love those fabrics...you have such different fabrics! Glad you got onboard. I will take pics of the fabrics I've chosen tomorrow...I was busy making a purse today. I decided to try to make several of this mystery, as I need runners for my craftbooth also. It will be fun trying to keep up!

    Just got home so will have to go shop that stash on the morning. Don't think I have the oomph to do it tonight. Too much driving - helped set up booth at North Texas Irish Festival in Dallas on Thursday/Friday and then worked Sherwood Forest Faire near Austin Saturday and today. Think I put about 650 miles or so on my truck since Thursday morning.

    I,m ready for the train ride. A table runner is a quick and easy project --so I can still work on others. I loved the results of the last ride. Now to pick out my colors--no need for shopping. I,ve got a piece of Birthday cake here for everyone also.

    Okay, I am onboard for this, have to go pick out my fabrics. It is a pleasure doing a small but useful project. I like the idea of a reversable one. As much as I like a full size quilt it isn't easy for me to quilt on my machine. I made some japanese pancakes for breakfast, I have killer clam chowder simmering for later and lemon coconut cookies for dunking in tea. Love all the fabrics so far.

    I'm on board again but will have to catch up later in March as I am on a 2 week vacation. First week in Florida (and with my luck, has been unseasonably cold for March) and next week - St. Kitts! Let's hope it will be warmer there...

    I love table runners and make them frequently for gifts so I have plenty of fabric on hand when i get back and look forward to the next clue.

    Hello everyone. I would love to join this train ride. I have not done any of the others, yet. Do I sign up somewhere? I am not sure how this works. I love everyone's fabrics.
