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.

    Elisabrat, pretty colors!
    Dungeon, VERY nice quilt. One of these days I'm going to learn that Stack n' Whack.

    It's raining like heck today here in beautiful Washington State. I have chicken, black beans and diced tomatoes in a crock pot for dinner tonight. They'll be great rolled up in a tortilla with sour cream and cheese!

    Sunliten, that photo made my heart go a bit faster. Wonder which to choose ? The man or the car? There was a Smart Car here in town with eyelashes painted by the headlights!!!! Oh, so cute! What is this car ? The little Fiats are cute, too. Can't wait for the next stop!! ;-)

    Well Coopah, I wouldn't take either. Can't do without a pickup truck and men are too high maintenance.

    Yes, it is Stack & Wack. 8 layers. This is my third using this pattern with the various size stars. Second to be finished. The first, I wanted to make into a jacket, but it was too big for me and I took it apart. It is still waiting to be put back together.

    Caroline, here's a picture of the new quilt inspector in training. We named her Tabby...short for Tabitha. And she's definitely going to be in inspector! She spent the day in the studio with me & tried catching the fabric as it came out the back side of the throat, or tried to catch the needle going up & down. I was working on a scrappy bow tie & had all those little pieces in a plastic basket next to the machine & she climbed in, put her head on the edge so she could watch the sewing & went to sleep! Too bad I didn't have the camera there, it was so cute! How about some Halloween cake for dessert tonight??

    oh a kitty with eye crusties.. does she need a little antibiotic for them? she is adorable and if she loves the needle going up and down maybe she can play with Roy, he needs someone who likes the stuff he loves too! He is my newest quilt inspector. I have one who likes to chew the thread off the spindle at top (argh) and another who likes to bat the needle (ROY) and another who waits for the scraps to hit the floor (I am a not to neat quilter) and another who thinks it all sucks and bites my feet to get my attention. (it works) other than zero help.

    ok extra cheese, homemade chocolate covered cherries BOY AM I IN and did someone mention booze? its it coctail time AGAIN? goody. ok no calories nothing bad for you sign me up. And the pink/pink is great love seeing them morph into quilt blocks. good to see you all today. I really dont want to prepare any dinner. cereal would be lovely. something says my sweetie would look at me like I lost my antlers. and red nose.. so ugh, dinner again. for you guys: made roasted eggplant, carmalized onions with balsamic vinegar served ontop of french bread rounds while hot with herb feta cheese sprinkled with a heavy hand on top.. serving in the last car for anyone who pops on last second!
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    I just got her Saturday & today she really went exploring in the studio. I think she found every nook & crannie of Queenie, as well as the sewing machine! Right now she's trying to help me type! Guess she wants to say hello too! Hear her little motor running??

Last time I bought a new machine. But I love it
    I live by Margie's & I try not to go too much anymore...I owe alot of my stash to her shop & 5 machines too! I know what you mean!!! Right now I'm cramming for the craftshows, trying to get secret santa stuff done, trying to catch up with the BOM on the board & another BOM from Cranton Village that I'm 3 months behind on. I don't have time to do much else!!! I hope to cram alittle time in for this mystery in here too, so I don't have to try to do it all at once before it ends...I want to be surprised too. I decided to change the rick rack fabric I had for my 1st pick since I know it would really bother me if it goes willy-nilly. I've decided to use that fabric on the back & piece the front fabric leftovers with it to be large enough if it isn't already...trying to post a pic.

    Home again~ filled with the dang fluie coldie cruddy crud~ but I am checking my stash for some good fabric to use on mystery #3.

    I love the selection you have all picked, Where did you get that cute Rick Rack fabric, it is so cute! I am really into making 4t dresses for a cute Princess that I just spent 10 days with! She had me wore out on day 2! But I am a happy granny!

    my hubby is afraid of me! hehe, says I picked up baby germs! could be... OK I will be back with my selections in a day or two, hope to have my HST's done by Sat time for next clue!

    And I loved Washington as always the colors are wonderful this time of year! I am glad she is an October Baby so I get to go there during my favorite time!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    And you kitten reminds me of my tiny ball of fur, Stewie, when he was first with us, now he is pushing 20 lbs and ornery as the day is long! His sister Bella, my sewing partner loves to inspect not only quilts but sized 4T dresses!

    wow! i don't know when y'all have time to sew with all the chatting and eating! for some reason i'm always several pages behind! i have ordered my fabric, and hopefully it will arrive soon! it is all polka dots. i have had it in my mind to do an all dotty quilt as well as a polka dot and stripes quilt. read judy's advice against stripes so this one will be called " seeing spots". is there a reason people don't use all polka dots? we may have the answer in several weeks.
    as for the dogs having beds, i have been saving scraps too. my dogs prefer their own blankets (one per dog per room) and the cats will sleep anywhere near me they can. i have put a window bed to my right as i sew and simon likes it very much, but has trouble navigating the route through the plastic boxes (my lame attempt at organizing). he is now 20 and not as nimble as he was once, but twice as loud. ah yes, a door closes, a window opens.
    i hope to get my fabric this week. i ordered from nicoleanne's and i hope they are prompt. i don't want to get too far behind! let's have a barbeque one day! i'll bring texas brisket and country ribs, and cases of longneck lonestar, or shiners. who will bring potatoes and beans, corn on the cob, and dessert?

    Drove an hour and half to Hancocks Fabrics hoping to find a different selection of blues to bring home came home with three new blues and lots more fabric to add to my stash. Here are the combinations I came up with. These blues are being so difficult ... how are these combinations?..or shall I go shopping again via internet. I worry that If I purchase based on pictures on the computer the shades might not be true if I try to purchase from online.

    The last picture is of alternate fabrics that match. The difference in the white fabric from the one I have in the grouping is it is a flower print and does not have any silver running through it like the two main fabrics Im trying to work with. Comments and suggestions always welcome.

    What do you think Judy will any of the new blue combinations work well? Thanks again for your time and input.

    Jenniky, love all your fabrics! Blues are a fav of mine. Picture 2 is what I'd choose. Wonder what Judy thinks? She's the expert on this trip for sure! Any choice will work.

    Jenniky, You certainly have an eye for color. Both of your choices are beautiful.
    And, glad to have you back!

    Jenniky, I think if you switched your A and F fabrics in group 1 you would have the contrast we need. Whatever you do, don't get rid of that awesome paisley!

    Coopah, Cindy... that is two solid votes for group Number #2 I was worried the combination had too much navy blue..but we will see what Judy thinks.
    Grammy of 6. thanks Im glad to be back also; Im on the fence with you on the two groups I like them but am not seeming to lean more towards one or the other.
    Pam I can see where the grouping you are suggesting would be great unfortunately I only have a yard of the F so am forced to only be able to use it as E or F. :/
    Have an awesome day!

    Well, Nanica, we do save a lot of time with the eating = more time for piecing
