    Judy the E and F in the bottom pic are only 1 yard so I can't put them anywhere in the center. The green at the bottom of the top pic has plenty of fabric and I can put that anywhere. Clevermom suggested using that as my F fabric in the bottom set which I layed out and she may be right.

    I still haven't finished the last mystery quilt (blush) - having a hard time deciding if I want to make it a lap quilt or the center of a larger quilt. But I will think about that while doing this mystery quilt! I will have to go shopping (yeah!) because I don't have large enough pieces of 6 coordinating fabrics. Do I have to clean up the mess I made in my sewing room trying to find coordinating fabric before I go shopping??? Anyone up for a trip to the LQS?
    Thanks, Judy for another fun project!

    I'm in and off to raid my stash. Need to make this for my sister, she keeps saying she almost wore the last one out, she has had it for 20 years LOL I think she deserves a new one. Her only request was to keep it on the dark side so it will look cleaner longer she has 5 animals and a hubby.

    Forgot to say I am bringing Cream Cheese Apple Crisp Squares

    Well, the quilt show is over, thank God! Now I can jump on this train without having to run out to the show! I'll go tackle my stash in the morning to see what I can find, but me thinketh that I'm going to have to go shopping! But that's on my list for Monday anyway! Whoppie! Thanks Judy! I'm looking forward to this one, the last one was a blast! OH! By the way, that quilt took Honorable Mention at the quilt show this weekend! In Judge's comments she wrote "interesting choices of color" but in "color & fabric" she wrote "would a darker inner border have given it more pop?" Guess I should have entered Sulabug's! Bet we would have ribboned with it!

    Feed back please. this is what I am thinking of this color and this one and this one and this one and thinking of cream tone on tone and gray as E -F.

    I am not one to do monochromatic colors. I do what looks good to me

    I won't be home to search my stash until thursday. I might just go shopping for fabric since my LQS is closing and she has 40% off everything this month. Next month 50% and then closing 12/1. So sad. It has been my 2nd home.
    There are some very lovely combinations so far. Can't wait to see the rest.
    I will be sharing the chocolate candy cookies I picked up at Sam's. Oh my. Did they ever get that chocolate dough just right.

    Nelco, you choose whatever you like. I only did monochromatic because I had it in my stash,

    This sounds like a lot of fun. I've never done anything like this before. But, I have to believe I need to work on building my stash!!!! I don't have anything that's more than a yard...let alone six choices! This could be an excuse for shopping later today?

    When do you post cutting insturctions?

    To bad we can't just have a folder for the instructions. I laugh because last time I spent more time reading than sewing.

    I am off to check my stash. I have a lot of smaller cuts, so will really have to do some searching for these. Can't wait to get started. I made a Holiday Truffle with my Big Soft Ginger Cookies. Left some in the caboose for all of you.

    OK, I am following this wondrous train's journey from the sidelines, but I will there waving at the stations as you pass. Got too much on my plate right now, but will record every move the train makes and file away for a future trip revisit. Thanks so much!

    SheriR - no, sorry, this really wouldn't work as scrappy, and you know how much I love scrappy.

    KarenR - some brights would be fine with something else that has contrast as I explained about your A-B colors and C-D colors, and two more fabrics with contrast. And cutting starts on Saturday the 20th.

    Still deciding on what colors to use. Oh, I have to go to the fabric stores. Hope something jumps out at me. I am bringing Apple Pie Cider on the train. I will make two choices--one with a punch of alcohol and one with out. Delicious and will keep us warm.

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.

    Guess I am late for breakfast but this sounds good for lunch!!!

    I have done your two other mystery quilts (although still finishing up #2) just haven't posted before, so looking forward to joing the caboose on this one!!!!

    Now to go through my stash and see if I can find something I like that goes together. Darn, may just have to go shopping....

    I'm with you on that one, I have mostly smaller pieces. Lots of fabric, just nothing big enough. I will hit some quilt shops with you!
