    Quick question leftover from train ride #1 - What loft and firmness of batting goes in a wallhanging? My daughter is going to use the quilt as a headboard in a guest room. As long one machine is set up for FMQ, I may as well get it done.

    Completed Clue #4...Posted picture below. Sorry I was so late to get on the train today had a FMQ class with Barbara Shapell wow she is amazing she has a thread painting class but that is way beyond me don't know if I will ever get that the FMQ to a point that I am happy the way it looks coming off of my current machine. Love everyone's color choices such variety makes everyone's unique.

    It really doesn't matter irishrose, depends on the finished look you want, flatter or puffy and lofty. Just add a hanging sleeve on the back and it will stay nicely against the wall either way.

    "You will make six each of the two different fabric combinations of A B E and C D F. for a total of 12 blocks. The E and F colors will be in the outside corners, as shown in the pictures, and are the traditional 9-patch blocks that will be 6-1/2" sq." per Judy..

    ok, 'E' & 'F' end up as outside corners and center of 9 patch blocks and we have 'set aside' half a strip (2 1/2 x 21) of 'A'&'C' ........set aside probably means we need it later so do not let the kittens play with it..... giggle, this punch in the pitcher in the observation car is yummy..... and the crackers with all these different cheeses sure makes a person thirsty.

    Oksewnsew, SunlitenSmiles thank you for your help. I see I have made the AE combo the wrong way round no worries have cut but not sewn all of them. Maybe I need to stop by the observation car before the next stop just to mingle of course

    Hi, everyone! I think I've got the directions right, but please let me know if this is correct: with E and F in the corners of the nine patch, I will end up with some extra fabric. 1/2 strip each of E and F, and 1 WOF strip each of A and C?

    I think I've had too much of that punch, Sunliten! Muddled brain...will have to go back over the posts for clue #4. Sorry not to be of help. Can someone help me get to my bunk...or do we have those nifty reclining seats for sleeping?

    YC Quilter, you ended up with the same thing I did! So either we both did it right or we both did it wrong! The extra strips may come into play later, maybe for cornerstone blocks? Who knows? It's a mystery!

    I don't like the puffy poly batt, because it doesn't lie nice and flat on the wall. So I always either Warm and Natural. But felt a sample of Hobbs's Thermore and am goind to try it on my next wall hanging -- it is poly but so thin.

    Labeelady and YC Quilter, the only left over should have been the half strips, you would have used the rest of the WOFs.

    I have the same ones left over also. I cut 3 strips each of A and E and used 2 and a half strips of E and two half strips and one full strip of A, and I've got a half strip of E and a whole strip of A left over.

    was everyone using 42 inch wide fabric and cuting cross grain...selvedge to selvedge (WOF)

    I accidently cut a WOF from a piece of wide back once....2 1/2 inch by 108 inch.....it was late at night.....sigh
    did use it all eventually in a strip quilt.

    I apologize to everyone - I guess I wasn't really up to doing this mystery. First I ended up in the hospital for 3 days, then inpatient physical therapy rehab for 7 days, and yesterday found out I have bronchitis which added more meds to my system! Ugh . So I probably should have delayed continuing with the mystery. But if you have left over 2-1/2" pieces, you will use them up at a later date.

    Ok let me see if I have my mind straight on the 9 patches - the lighter fabric of A/B and the lighter one of E/F go together and the darker of C/D and the darker of E/F go together. Right? And all are cut 2-1/2"?

    Not necessarily, Mom. It depends on which fabrics you decided to use for E and F. Just make sure E coordinates well with A/B and F with C/D.

    So in other words what your eye tells you looks good go for it? Guess I better get out of the party car and get to sewing.

    Exactly, Nelco. I agonized way too much over my choices.

    Katybob is right.
    Yes, mom6, whichever of the E and F give you the best contrast with A-B. Same with your C-D - you need contrast, not similar values.
