    Another MYSTERY QUILT Train Ride - our 5th trip!

    Hello and good morning to all! Welcome aboard to new and returning passengers, for our fifth mystery quilt train ride. Today you will get yardage for this project which, hopefully, will appeal to beginners and advance quilters alike. To me, the fun is in trying anticipate the final project. Next clue will be posted on March 9th, and on succeeding Saturdays, by 9:00 MST at the very latest. This time, our journey will last for 4 more weeks and you will have a table runner for the dining room or kitchen, or perhaps that coffee table -- so choose your fabrics accordingly. And with that said -- the only clue I will be giving to what you are doing -- here is what you will need from your stash or at the store.

    Four fabrics, labeled A B C D. I would suggest you cut a sample, label it with a letter, tape it to a sheet of paper and keep it handy. (I got confused and ended up remaking a set of blocks because I used the wrong colors.) As you can see from my fabrics Im getting a jump on the season and am making a Christmas gift. You do not need to do as I did and use all dark fabrics. Just use things you like.

    A - yard
    B - yard
    C- yard
    D - 5/8 yard

    Looking forward to seeing your fabric selections!

    Approved by Patrice.

    I will be digging through my stash when I get home from taking mom grocery shopping. I have some ideas of what I want to pull from my stash. I like the idea of getting started on the holidays.

    Thanks again Judy for your hard work on putting these together.

    Would you believe that I don't have any Christmas fabrics in my stash? Now I have to go shopping. This mystery will be a perfect gift for my cousin who always goes all out on Christmas decorating.

    Going down my check list making sure I have everything. Rotary cutter, mat, pins, scissors, thread, featherweight in the case, check....now choose fabric. Suitcase is already packed. I'll be ready to jump on board. I don't even care where the train is going, I'm along for the beautiful ride and scenery.

    Here we go! My bags and my 301 are packed, I just need to choose fabrics. I have been making Spicy Spirals for my children, but have no quilted table runner for me, so I will choose dining room colors. Will it work in softer colors?

    Judy, here are the fabrics that I chose. I have enough of each that if you think I should move one to a different spot it will work. Or change?

    I have my ticket, I was just thinking about trying to do a table runner! Now I have a great reason, on the to club car for cider I may skip the donuts. By the way did the hot tub get installed yet?

    Yeah I am so excited woke up to find that this thread had been started this made my day. Thank you again Judy for making this all happen. Looks like it make me a smaller quilt and I am all in for that as I did not want to miss it but have so many bigger projects that weigh me down right now. Nice to have something to break up having to work on something double to king size

    I must make a confession --I have not even finished #3 mystery quilt… I take it with me to sew days thinking I will get it worked on…Why? you ask I have not finished it?….Well I messed up on my 9 patches and need to redo them…and I do not have any extra fabric to remake….It will get done…I promises.

    Now for this one…I see it as doable and I can make it for my sister as she likes table runners. I got my ticket for this ride and will be there in the club car with some sweets.

    I have so much going on right now, I am just going to watch this ride. Maybe later I will find the time to do. As I have looked thru the old rides, I have seen some amazing quilts.

    At first I thought JUST a table runner????? But you know what? They DO make great gifts and I just might make one to match the quilt made in the last train trip so that it can be used as a bureau scarf along side the quilt. So .....YA, I'm jumping on board! Now, off to the stash piles......
