    Better late than never!

    So I'd like to jump on board with all you fun folks! Hope you still have room! LoL!! As the racing season here in the Midwest/Gt Lakes area is ending this weekend I will be free to sit in front of my machine and sew till my hearts content - well at least until spring!! As I have never done a mystery quilt I thought I would give it a try - but I told myself I had to go to my fabric collection and make a withdrawal... so here are two options that I came up with.... what do you think?

    Pretty fabric Gretchen, I'm partial to the 1st one, I love the gold with your floral. Either way very nice, should be beautiful.

Size:  275.2 KBGetting done! I'll go back and see what others have done as soon as these are all done. Whew! Time for a break. Is anyone in the club car? Guess I'll go look...if any food is left, that would be good, too!

    Your blocks look great Christine and Coopah.
    Gretchen, I like the first grouping. I made tote bags for my daughter's wedding out of that green.

    I love the first one, Gretchen. The lighter aqua in the second is too washed out for those wonderful colors, IMO.

    OK, my purples are done so the greens will be for the next clue. Thanks, Sunliten and Jeanie G. for the compliments. I was 1" short of the spiral purple after shrinking it (and I bought extra but it really shrunk...good thing I prewashed, huh?). So today was an emergency run to the LQS to get more. Such excitement on this trip!! The furry quilt inspectors are doing a good job!

    The color combos on this trip are beautiful. And the food...oh my goodness!! Sunliten, are you ready to zip off to a quilt shop or two in that snazzy electric car? See you on Saturday!!

    I love.. THEM ALL. they especially are easy to get an idea of when they are sewn into hst's. those purple sheesh they look like in the first block you semi framed them wouldnt that be pretty? next train ride.

    I ate all the pecan ice cream with pecan carmel sauce yes yes I did but there is mint chip with sauce left I think up front in the first car check there. just offering pan seared steak and a bake potato tonight with green salad if anyone wants a hearty simple meal.. choice of salad dressing, ranch, caesar or rice wine vinegrette.. something for everyone! oh those are stuffed potatoes, butter, cheddar and topped with bacon and sour creme, home made oh and green onions.. in fact unless you want a burnt tater I had better go check on them rightnow!

    I like #2 but I would use the gold instead of the tourquoise as F. Love the fabrics!

    Whew! I've just spent half the morning reading this thread. Since you are swinging through Texas to hit the Fredericksburg Pie Shop, I think I have enough time to grab my fabrics and meet you there. Actually while you are in Fredericksburg, you really should stop by Rustin' Robs to taste some Texas delicacies. http://rustlinrobs.com/ All those free samples end up almost being lunch for me when I pass through. At any rate, I'll grab the fabrics, post a pic before I leave to make sure the combos work and plan on meeting you in Fredericksburg in a while.

    Here are my provisional choices. I like the A-B-C-D combo as B & D pick up the same blue, and A & C complement their partners well. A is actually more peach than orange and C is more green than shows up in the pic. What I'm really dithering about is the E-F choices. If none of these work, I can pull more from my stash. Opinions, please?

    Belfrybat, I like your choices, but for some reason, I'd like to switch C and E. We'll have to wait to see what Judy says.

    Wow the fabrics are beautiful. I can't wait to see this all come together. Right now, I'm hanging out in the club car and gonna read. We are getting rain again today and just wanna snuggle up with coffee and a book.
