    Hi from Crestview! I wonder if we've ever bumped into each other? Like your color choices!

    I've been without internet for a while and now I am lost! I found clue number 2 for the 7" HSTs...but where did one run off too? I do believe I have looked from page 1 to page 27 (where clue 2 is) and I can't find it! Stickies would be nice to keep them on page 1, but I guess that won't be happening! Can anyone tell me what page clue 1 is on...and have I missed clue 3 as well? Sorry to be a bother and thank you!!

    Farm Quilter, clue one is on page one - it's the yardages and colors needed. You found clue two and three will be given on Saturday.

I think this is one forum you sorta need to follow or remember the last post you checked out so you can always move forward from that point. I am your local pain in the rear so I will be here and surely wont get too lost. Besides not leaving the food and sugar,i mean sweets car. I am already putting on no calorie pounds. tonight I made candied walnuts since i cant eat them maybe someone here would like a few? there is a big pan of stir fry beef with ginger, friedrice and steamed broccoli with almonds if anyone is interested.. soy anyone? little bowl of mandarin oranges with pineapple pieces to cleanse your palate? so happy to share come sit a spell and tell me a story.Name:  mystery train clue 2 finished.jpg

    Nice pinks Linda. Dag nabbit, stir fry ginger beef, steamed broccoli with almonds??!! I am already stuffed with Cindy's spaghetti and garlic bread. I may have to do some jogging down the train cars to burn off some calories and then stop at the club car for a midnight snack of the beef and broccoli.

    Sweet Caroline no jogging required they were NO calorie meals. apparently all calories fly out the window before food enters the train. I suggest no eating at train stops while visiting the local quilt shops before the next leg of the journey begins because those stops HAVE CALORIES (ahhhh). Best trip i have ever taken, no calories I can eat forbidden foods and I sure hope you left me some garlic bread must have missed that. How could I miss garlic bread? ahhh.

    [QUOTE=ShiAnnF;5601940ll Please straighten me out, we started with 6 7/8" blocks, than you said 7" were better, we could cut them down to the correct size, now we are down to 5" or 5 1/8" blocks, I am a beginner and do not understand what size I should cut the blocks, I am sure you ladies, the experts know exactly what Judy is talking about. Please excuse me for being kind of dumb, if there is such a thing. I like to think there is still hope for me. All of the material pictured is very pretty I will post my colors after I have the blocks cut the correct size. I read somewhere that you cannot make the same mistake twice, because the second time is not a mistake it is a choice. My choice is to get it right the first time.[/QUOTE]

    Asking for clarification isn't dumb.This is my thrid mystery with Judy, and it took me several rereads to figure it out. Although it's there, clear as day. 24-6 1/2" triangles. The chatter got in my way with the instructions. Chatter is good, just sometimes not for me, as I'm totally concrete, sequential with probably some undiagnosed ADD thrown in for fun! Snazzy ruler, Judy! New tools are always good. Off we go on another ride. Woo hoo!

    6 1/2" blocks, 24 total at the completion of step #2 (each block is made of two, half-square triangles,fabrics 'A' &'B' )


    there are many ways to make half-square triangle blocks...
    and many ways to use them in many different patterns = fun

    I have my blocks made, and some trimmed to 6.5", but no pics yet. I was very busy all weekend sewing the binding on the MONSTER. I call it Fishing in the Dark and it measures 106" x 123". The LAQ named it the monster and said there seemed to be no end to it. Here is a couple of pictures. I will post it in the pictures once I can get a full picture of it. First one is sewing on the binding. Second is 1/4 of the quilt on a twin bed.

    Yep, Sunliten, fer sure my ADD is undiagnosed, but present! 6 1/2" finished blocks! Yes! That's what I'll do when I get my head straight. Might be waiting awhile. It's five o'clock somewhere,right? Maybe a Margarita would help! Or if I wait until Happy Hour, I could have two and then it definitely won't matter. Oh, yeah, maybe it would matter on Saturday when we get the next step. Until then, playtime!!!

    I agree, that is one big quilt. I am impressed and liking it. Good work dungeonquilter. Was the quilt planned to be that size or did it just grow like some of my quilts?

    That quilt is wonderful! I have that fabric. I like the blue with it to represent water.

    Gee thanks for straightening me out. Now my back hurts from all that straightening. You gals have such an imagination I thought I would throw one in too. I now know to cut my blocks 7" and trim to 6 1/2". It was to simple that is why I could not figure it out. Again thanks a lot. I will bring a special treat tonight to the ladies that helped me, how about home made chocolate covered cherries. Of course there is no calories in these.

    I planned the center to be the size it is. The borders are much wider than I originally planned. I had fabric left over, and just decided to keep adding. It got a bit finicky with the fishes in the border, as I had just enough length and was mitering them.

    I just don't know about you all. Eating candy, eye candy, booze lol lol food and more food. Having a good laugh here. And so I don't have to scroll back and look for a name, the lady in Crestview??? The only place I go is Margie's and it's been a few years for that. I'm actually afraid to go again. Last time I bought a new machine. But I love it
