    Well, I cut an extra strata; just did it the same as the others--just needed the 6 to add to the others...no big deal! Got the long strips done, too. Thank you for the link on putting together bias binding (I had not done it before)...really helped! Learned something new & that's a good thing! I am really liking all these colors together for my granddaughter's graduation quilt...hope she likes it too. Probably won't get quilted for awhile...I do have 2 more years to finish it! Craftshow for the next 2 days, so will get the clue on Sunday.

    I am so enjoying this mystery ride. I can't begin to imagine what it will end up as but the choices of fabric are amazing. If I wasn't working so hard on trying to finish a quilt for December 13th I would be trying my hand at it too. I will just post a half finished square of the one I am working on. I have a dear friend who lives in England that loves fighter jets. He collects pictures of them all the time. One day while visiting this past summer we went out for the day to Harry Potter theater, I had his brother in law take pictures of his pictures, and put them on a stick. I printed them off on cloth when I got home and am making a quilt with them. On this square I still have a border of battleship gray to put around the outside. I am doing a simple quilting of stitch in the ditch and then will quilt as you go to finish it. I am relatively new to quilting so have to keep it simple so I can get it done before he comes to visit. A Christmas present, so can't be seen working on it.

    Great job on color choices you ladies are doing on this mystery, some I would never have thought would go together are looking reallly good. Have to join the next one.............................there will be a next one, right Judy?? LOL

    Thanks for the compliment. I wonder how long he will look at it before he realizes that the jets are from his own wall? What do you think, lol? No, the middle border is not glow in the dark, I tried to get some like that, but couldn't find what I wanted. The other blue came from a piece that his daughter sent me from England. I will see if I can get the information for you, after I look and see if I have any selvage left on it.

    Good one Quilt addict, Saturday in Japan, lol, I like that. People don't usually give that a thought. Thanks on my quilt, as I said, I am having fun with it even if it taking all my spare time.

    Lovely fabrics, all of you! And no two of them alike! I hope there will be a gallery set up where we can upload pics of the finished quilts!

    While all of you are busily working on the next installment tomorrow, hubby and I will still be in Syracuse NY waiting for our train to take us back to Chicago so we can change to another train to go home. Hopefully I'll be able to work on the next clue when we get home on Monday, but we're taking off again on Wednesday for Texas (driving this time) to spend Thanksgiving with my relatives. Will print out instructions in case I can't get it done and may work on it at my sister's.

    Pat your taking one big trip there... wow. Touring all over? a pre holiday family run?

    some very colorful choices. I am a big old chicken with too much variety in color. Obviously that is not the majority of cases. maybe I should come out of my color block mind set? I am stressing over using white as one of my accent color (ha) it is just so.. nothing. but maybe it will make something pop. Doubt it. The purple i ordered did not come in. I have enough of a similar purple I could do the nine patches with it but it would be different than the main purple so maybe I should wait. or I could just go whip out some peach orange fabric and throw it withmy pinks and probably end up with something nice. chicken. sad chicken too far behind now. I will be sewing my fingers off this next week to catch up. (this does not bug me by the way I have the time). so take your time posting tomorrow Judy .. I wont be home til say noon Ca time so no rush (ducking dont any of you think of throwing that at me? fabric fine but not .. THAT!)
    Linda
    Here today... why what a lucky bunch we are.

    Sunslitten, i love the color crayon fabric, where did you get it? Angel Annie, I love the airplane, it reminds me of my Dad, he was an airplane enthusiastic. I am sure your friend will be very thrilled!

    Hey Brat! I know your mystery quilt is going to be awesome! I am a fan of bright colors and seem to collect them when ever I shop for fabric, so most of my unexpected projects end up being brights. my next big project for me will be my black and white scrappy!

    Grammy Mary, I love your colors, your quilt is going to be great!

    I think this one will go to my niece. Her Mom, my sister, died when she was two and she lived with us until she was 9. her father decided to make an appearance boy did that kill me when he took her... Any way she has now reappeared in my life at the old age of 22! Time flies, but she looks so much like my sister, it floored me to see her again! I think she will love this quilt when I finish.

    I am now ready for the next clue! my Sewing machine is Smokin~ trying to make up time, time I lost helping hubby!

    I know that when I wake up I will be ready for the next step!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Okay, it is 5 a.m. where I am and no clue. Couldn't sleep as ideas of the next clue kept running through my head. So the coffee is on in the club car and I guess I will go make some french toast bread pudding for breakfast while we wait for Judy to wake from her beauty sleep.

    I'm still in the hotel in Syracuse and it's 9:31 here. We have to check out by 11 AM then head for the train station where there is no WI-FI, however, if I can lug the laptop to the mall near the station, Panera Bread has Wi-Fi. Otherwise, I'll have to wait until we get into Chicago before I can look at the next clue, which I hope will have been posted by then, as we won't be in Chicago until tomorrow morning!

    think the ETA was 8a.m. PST ........ but sometimes Judy surprises us early.

    crayon fabric was 2007 at Candie's on Reseda Blvd. but many repeat orders as it is very popular.

    Well quilt addict you can not expect her to post before her mani/pedi, brush out, make-up, stylist visit...sheeesss
    (giggle, Judy is going to throddle me for this post, giggle)

    Train should have wi-fi

    I don't know if the train has Wi-Fi or not. I'll have to check it out when we get on board.

    I am almost done with the last clue. I had to get off the train yesterday and attend the Sewing and Quilt Expo. My DD and I shopped mightily . Gotta get busy and finish sewing together my last strip sets for quilt top 2. The first pic is my first fabric choices, pinks and grays. The second pic is of my second
    choices. Bold and bright! It took me forever to decide on my F fabric. So when in doubt go with black. I can hardly wait to see how this turns out.

    Hey Judy, do I have to take my other quilt project off the design wall for the next clue?????
