    I shredded the carrots into the soup. Soup tasted really good.

    I am liking your new green C fabric much better than the batik. Your E fabric would work with the new green C. Oh my, I wonder how the D bamboo fabric would look as an E? Not much help am I?

    BTW, carrots will be shredded into my next pea soup.

    Okay I only have 1 yard and 7 inches of my E fabric which would put me about 5 inches short of 1-1/3 yards of D fabric. I have 3 yards of my D Bamboo fabric that's why I put it there. I wouldn't want to use my E for D and be short towards the end of doing clues.

    I like the sage idea...the white seems so stark.

    ok two bits from old brat here, I like the second C choice you came up with more color and no stripes which are hard to keep going in the same direction with only so much fabric you wont be able to fussy cut it. the bambo fabric seems too light sage to go with the F fabric remember E has to go with either AB or CD and same with F. I know you will figure it out, make your favorite A/B and B/c make sure B goes good with C also as somewhere i guess they might meet up in the train ride here and you can figure out for sure E and F within the next week so you have time on those. Just get started.

    JABA how come your not showing us your 'failed combo' next to your good combo then your new combo? I know you have it done and maybe it was just your day not your combos? maybe tomorrow you go oh heck I like the originial set after all. It looked good here when you laid it out. I am second guessing my second set too but no other fabric options and well just going with it figuring if Ilove the pattern next round I make it I can buy what I like knowing the design and since we made it once it will go togther super fast the second round. I want pics!

    You are so right I didnt lay them out correctly.. Thanks Belfrybat for catching that for me.

    Thanks everyone for the help and input on my fabrics.. Im excited now to see the mystery come together. Speaking of split pea soup...yumm one of my very very favorites. I llike to make homemade sourdough croutons to put in my soup right before serving.

    I had my fill of chocolate yesterday...so Im headed for the fruit plate today.. some orange slices and grapes.

    How does one join the Mystery Quilt Train adventure? This looks like a lot of fun. I love your fabrics. I have not been on the board for a couple of weeks as I've been out of town a lot. You can PM me if you want to.
    Thanks, Drue
    Those who are piecemakers will sew seeds.

    Hugs,

    here's my HSTs so far. The jury is still out if I like the blue. As things progress, it might get pulled for another project.

    Not that I know everything, but it took me many tried to download mine and I finally figured out that it only allows a certain amount of bytes per picture. If you take your picture and edit it, just drag the corner down a very little and save, it makes it just small enough to download. Good luck.

    I have traveled along this train, and so enjoy it. At this time I can't do the quilt as I am working on a fighter jet quilt for a christmas present and it is taking my time up when I am not working. But as I have enjoyed every train so far, I had to at least go along for the ride. The dishes are kept done up, cleaning all taken care of so you ladies can ride and eat and ride and eat, shop when we stop, and on and on. Just spending time with you ladies is a trip in itself. Love it, love the colors.

    Judy, so glad to see you on the mend. Please take care of yourself!

    Although I have a decent stash, most of my pieces are small, a yard or less with lots of FQs, so my choices were limited. Here's what I came up with.

    P.S. I'm bringing all my leftover Halloween candy to the club car. I surely don't need them at my house!

    Drue, welcome aboard. You just go to the first page for fabric requirements, page 264 for the second set of directions and a few pages back here for the third set. What do you have to do to join? Post once in a while - we like pictures and provide some food. I have 4 pounds of bean soup on the soup on the stove so there will plenty to share. How about some cornbread to go with it? Sure glad there are no calories because I can eat a lot of this.

    I still like my fabrics (the red and black roses), but can't sew until Sunday - our church bazaar is Saturday and I am currently FMQ a quilt for it. Plus I have an out of town Dr app't tomorrow.

    Have a good day, everyone.

    Okay after my "what was I thinking" moment came up with this. Now I have 2 different ones going for a ride.Name:  DSCF0931.JPG
Views: 344
Size:  1.22 MBThe top, left to right, are 1 set, bottom, left to right, are the 2nd set. My first moment was the left hand ones together. Don't know may change my mind again. And I did just finish these this morning Elisabrat. Dreaming of table toppers all night so got up at 4a.m. and started sewing. Have a winter one and a Xmas one of those all done too, just need to quilt them now and bind.

I prefer the powder sugar coating vs the hard coating but can pick up both if you like? a little spice cookie to get your thinking about CHRISTMAS and the WINTER HOLIDAYS hum hum? they are so good you cant eat just one. HEY WE ARE CLOSER TO CLUE 4! the half way mark. TADA that will be fun fun fun. I love being half way done with something. Saturday is coming!!! yippee! hurrah, da da da da daa da da da dada! oh yes .. happy dance, join along this is fun! wheeee (hey bartender get me another round of whatever your pouring!)

    Okay, Just found this thread and have not read all twelve pages, just some of the fabric choices. Is there any intermediate stops that I can get on this train? I will have to hope off for a week of Thanksgiving to go to my Mom's in Nebraska if that is okay.

    I figure I am two weeks behind, as I can probably shop my stash tonight.

    I have only done one other mystery quilt on New Year's day this year. That is when I broke my resolution to only work on UFO's this year. Haven't finished any of those either and here it is November. So why not start something else?
