    I have mine done and I'm not particulary in love with my light choice. I'll post pix and then we'll see what they really are. I pulled fab after fab, so much that my room is a total wreck and all the bins are open and scattered. Think I might get my helper to lift and tug them back in place. Good idea Retta. Go for It. Why thanks, think I will LOL

    WOW, what's not to love about this Board. Food and Fabric and Friends.
    I don't get to participate often but when I do, it is always worth it.
    Really love the sharing of diverse cultures. I will have to Google samoosas.

    Results so far

    I've finished clue 4. It's nice to have them in simple steps so that I can complete on the weekend. Working 40hrs sure gets in the way of my free time. Lucky that I can jump on and off this train..off to get stressed and on to relax and sew and read how everyone is doing. This picture doesn't show the colors very well, browns, cranberry red, gold.

    Oh my goodness, I absolutely love everyone's squares, they all are fabulous! I have the advantage of imaging what they will look like .... hee hee .... and I'm not telling. This is getting exciting!

    Chef, don't be unhappy with your choices, they will be beautiful.

    Aw thanks Judy. They don't look so badly now that I've posted them. Takes a bit of getting used to. The ladies have really picked some gorgeous combinations. Still waiting for the stop at the Fabric Depot. LOL

    Bless your heart Katybob, you pat me on the back and I'll return the favor. Not really, I do love your choices. LOL But thanks. I love oranges and purples and pinks together. Oh I just love everyone's.

    Oh my- I wish I was with you. What a wonderful thing to do. Please take pictures - a lot - a lot. I can not even imagine buying fabric by the pound. Hope you get a great price. Please show us so we can drool over what you get. At 12.00 a yard I don't buy to much.

    My pink and white print goes best with the pinky purple set and is the light value and the grape kool-ade one (which looks great with either set) is the dark value.

    paintjudy - sorry you're still not feeling up to par. Bronchitis can be miserable so take good care of yourself. If you need to delay a clue, we can all just wait in the club car.

    Well, this clue is finished. Thanks for the extra tip that the E & F go in the corners, somehow the directions weren't reading right to me.
    Judy, if you don't feel up to this weeks clue, we'll wait. I just dropped some chocolate chip cookies & nice cold milk in the club car to keep us occupied! Get better soon!

I may end up working 14 straight days to cover not working on Turkey day or the day after. I have the fabric pick out!!! Here is what i have going so farName:  mystery quilt 3.jpg

    Everybody's blocks are looking so pretty - of course what else could they be with the delightful fabric choices! I'm thinking my dark may overwhelm my lights, but we'll see.

    mom6 - don't worry - your combo will really pop

    everythinghomemade - pretty choices, good luck on the new job

    All the sets being posted are going to be wonderful. I know it's hard when you are doing a mystery and you keep second guessing yourselves. But all is well on the mystery train, honest.

    To all of you, thanks for your good wishes. The bronchitis seems a bit better already, guess I got to the doc in time before it really grabbed hold like it did in May. Or maybe it's the codeine cough syrup! It's the back that is still not good. I miss sewing -- but I'm afraid to be hunched over the machine yet. Poor little Bessie hasn't been turned on in two weeks now!

    I'm impressed with everyone's 9 parches! Such variety! Love 9 patches. So I guess I should get going on them. YAY for Judy feeling better. Just be careful so you don't overdo and relapse. We can always hold the train at the station a bit longer. Sometimes quilters enjoy the extra long stops, especially if there's a quilt store nearby!
