    Oh, grannydar, you can't just sit back, you have to join us. As you can see, we are all fun companions and good imaginative cooks!

    Totally understand my stash takes up a huge row of shelves in 8 foot closet then the other closet same size has 6 rubber maid huge tubs the ones you can not see in( to hide from hubby). Then there are other boxes with fat quarters and kits and don't forget the cart with all the baskets holding patterns and another rubber made full of scraps. LOL to much to bring along going to travel light this time

    How about this for lunch? http://www.quiltingboard.com/recipes...k-t202928.html. The recipe is from QuiltE. Just finished canning two big batches of salsa yesterday and lots of onions left. Might make some cheesy biscuits (ala Red Lobster Cheddar Bay Biscuits) to go with it. Nothing like a tummy warming lunch to prepare for the fabric selection.

    Wow I see the smoke stack on the train puffing and puffing as it waits for us to board. Well......sigh.......My stash is not very big. I will dig and see what I can come up with but I have a feeling that I will have to go shopping before boarding. (sad, I know, smile) The reason I think of out train being an old time one with modern conveniences of course and a top level view part is because I live near Knotts Berry Farm and I hear the train whistle all the time.
    I am so excited to get started. I will have to leave for the month of Nov. to fly to Australia but I am not going to look to see what the end results is. I return on the last day of this train ride. But I will send you all some fantastic australian goodies ...like angel wings and lemmikins. I think that is how it is spelt. Maybe we have some down under quilters joining us and they can set me straight. LOL. Off to check what I have.

    Nana, you don't need to rush. Just make sure you let me know when the pumpkin cake comes onboard.

    OMG I gotta go eat someting, I can't take it anymore. Need some toast with pumpkin butter. I just finished making batchs of pumpkin butter and apple butter (in the crock pot - burn proof) - both go fabulous with cinnamon raisin toast or bagels, with a little bit of cream cheese smeared on as soon as it comes out of the toaster. Yum.

    How about 'Nancy's' in Las Vegas
    or 'Monica's' in Palm Springs
    or there is always 'Cotton & Choclate' in Thousand Oaks
    or the "Cotton Ball" in Morro Bay.

    Here is my first pick out of what I have in the stash had a hard time coordinating other choice did not have 1 3/4 yard of 4 fabrics that went well together. And I must shop from the stash so this is my pick for this mystery train ride.

    I ABSOLUTELY LOVE CREAMED ONIONS, USED TO MAKE THEM ALL THE TIME!

    So easy to make, a basic white sauce with some extra butter, and salt and pepper to taste, throw in the cooked onions. Yum.

    Here Are My Fabrics

    ​Well, Just raided the stash and I am back on board. Will try to take some better close-up pics later. It is a dank wet day here in Western WA, not good for taking pictures.

    First from the left will be B, it is flat fold fabric I have had for years
    The light next to it will be A, it is the back of a cotton duvet cover, a damask 100% cotton, a Goodwill purchase
    Dark pink leafy print will be C, another Goodwill purchase
    Lighter pink solid will be D, also have had this for years
    Darker Pink print will be E, Goodwill remnant
    Darkest will be F, this one will be interesting as it is a McKenna Ryan ombre fabric, Silent Inspirations. The color graduates from dark charcoal to an almost an ecru color. I have yardage for the 3/4 yard I need.

    I have been wanting to use the B fabric for years. I have enough of it to use as the backing also.

    Alas, I too have checked my stash and do not have enough pieces big enough. This means a trip to the fabric store. I will have to hop onboard later on when I get my fabrics. I can smell all the goodies as the train whizzes by. mmmmmmm, I hope there will be some creamed onions left.

    Thank you, Paintmejudy, for doing this mystery quilt. I rode along (and sewed along) with the second one -- thoroughly enjoyed it -- top is finished; I keep going back and forth on hand quilting (I've never done), quilting on DSM (only done two) or sending it out (what I usually do). I'm anxious to go shop my stash for fabrics to make this one.

    Poker Diva,
    I like your number two pick but with the green print you have at the bottom of your number one pick if that's any help.

    Poker, I favor the bottom collection. In fact, I love the bottom collection, it will have nice punch factor. My choice would be to do the black and red as E and F, and maybe pair the white with the white print, but I also think the green laying across the bottom of #1 would be really nice with the white, too. - I know that next week you will know exactly what to do once you read that clue.

    Chefwarner - LOVE your xmas fabrics!!!!!

    Cadqueen - you have until next Saturday to decide on fabric, I won't post anything until then.

    You're welcome, Teacher.
