    You all are so funny It is only 7:45am here in Oregon and I know she lives in Arizona so she may be in the same time zone. I am excited also I loved last weeks clue! I really like how this mystery is going. Okay I need some caffeine to wake me up maybe I will go get me some hot cocoa before Judy post the clue. See you all soon

    Clue 6

    Remember: You made the 9-patch blocks using E with A, the lighter of the A-B combo, and you used F with C, the darker of the C-D combo. My top photo will remind you of my original fabrics, A to D in the middle, E across the top and F across the bottom.


    This week, you will be using the E with B, the darker of the A-B combo. And using F with D, the lighter of the C-D combo.

    I have started with my F and D, as pictured in the second photo.
    From F, cut five 2 strips
    From D, cut three 4 strips.
    From D, cut four 2 strips.
    Use accurate seams. Make strip sets shown in photo and described here:
    Sew one 2 strip of F with one 4 of D.. See the second photo. Press well. You will have a piece 6 wide by WOF long. Make 2 more sets like this one. Press all 3 strip sets-- all strips sets need to measure
    6 wide. From the strip sets, square up one end then cut off a 2 section, making a piece that measures 2 wide x 6 long. You will need 48 of these pieces. See third photo. Discard the left over piece of strip set.
    Now, Sew the remaining pieces as shown, with the F in the middle, and a piece of D on either side. Make one more strip set. Press both strip sets well. The strip sets must measure 6 wide. by WOF long. Square up one end, and cut a 2 section, which will measure 2-1/2 x 6 You will need 24 of these pieces. Discard leftovers..

    (Sorry - I forgot to take a picture of the E and B fabrics. See bottom picture for what you will be cutting)
    From E cut five 2 strips
    From B, cut three 4 strips .
    From B, cut four 2 strips.
    Use accurate seams. Make strip sets as described here.
    Sew one 2 strip of F with one 4 strip of D. Press well. You will have a piece 6 wide by WOF long. Make 2 more sets like this one. Press all 3 strip sets -- all strips sets need to measure 6- wide. From the strip sets, square up one end then cut off 2- section, making piece that measures 2 wide x 6 long. You will need 48 of these pieces. Discard left over piece.
    Now, sew the remaining pieces as shown, with the F in the middle, and a piece of D on either side. Make one more strip set. Press both strip sets well. The strip sets must measure 6- wide. by WOF long. Square up one end, and cut a 2- section., which will measure 2-1/ x 6- You will need 24 of these pieces. Discard leftovers.

    Im sorry I forgot to take some of the pictures as I was working up the sample, but I think you will be able to see what you need to do with the E and B fabrics.

    This should keep you busy for a while. We will deal with these pieces next Saturday.

    I'm finally caught up and ready for the next clue. I do need to trim all the blocks but at least they are done. Here is a pic of all of my pieces.

    I love your enthusiasm, but hey, I need my beauty sleep! It's not even 9:00 here in Arizona, and remember, at the very beginning I said I would post by 9. I do feel sorry for you east coasters, having to wait, but setting my alarm for 5:30 a.m. to be awake enough by 6 to post clues? Nope. Sorry!

    And sunlite, I am so glad you don't know where this train is going to take us. Half the fun of a mystery, right?

    Hi Judy.

    I would like to start doing the mystery quilts. Would you mind telling me how I get in on the next one?

    Thanks
    Enjoying life to the fullest is learning to quilt and riding my motorcycle.

    SparklingLake, not too late to join this one!

    Not sure when the next one will be, probably near the middle or end of February. Gives everyone a chance to get over the holidays, and I will be on vacation in January.

    Cindy, how did you do that so fast! I am impressed! I also am still on my first cuppa coffee so I am warming to the idea of going in there and tackling the next step!

    Judy, I have to say that the mystery Trains are my favorite project to do because it is always a project that I never thought to try! So thanks so much for our mystery train rides!

    On an "off topic note" I have been saving black and white fabric for YEARS! maybe 4 but not real sure. I had a project in mind and I was going to make this wonderful scrappy black and white quilt... To keep... rarely make them for myself!

    But danged if I can remember what the pattern was, now that I have a whole shelf of B & W fabric, any one have a good scrappy pattern that would rock with B&W???
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Mary, did you see the Ten minute block in black and white with a bright center in today's pictures? It was very nice. I'm thinking of doing mine with every block different - a sampler, I think. Some of the free Craftsy BOM blocks look interesting. No other color planned at this point - just b/w.

    I've started playing catch up.

    CINDY..........how on earth did you get this clue done so FAST? Me thinks you sneaked a look at Judy's clue, before we did!! I am going to have to keep an @EYE@ on you little lady. Love your Red & White combination, it's gorgeous. Happy Birthday to your GS for me.

    If you see someone without a SMILE, please give them one of yours!!

    Ditto here also. Cindy must be the "teachers pet" ha ha. I am still wandering this morning, printed off the clue, dug out my vintage Elna Supermatic to use making the next quilt on the design wall, pressed some cord fabric I purchased for another quilt, organized and cleaned my sewing space, pulled the fabrics for Clue 6, vacuumed, loaded dishwasher, did another load of wash. OMG, I am tired already. Thinking about heading to the club car for awhile.

    I am c/p the second half of this clue because I am so confused. The first half uses F/D and how to sew/subcut. The second set uses E/B for cutting but uses the following directions for sewing and subcutting. There is no reference to the E/B. Oh help me please, pretty please LOL " Sorry - I forgot to take a picture of the E and B fabrics. See bottom picture for what you will be cutting)


    From E cut five 2” strips
    From B, cut three 4” strips .
    From B, cut four 2” strips.
    Use accurate ” seams. Make strip sets as described here.
    Sew one 2” strip of F with one 4” strip of D. Press well. You will have a piece 6” wide by WOF long. Make 2 more sets like this one. Press all 3 strip sets -- all strips sets need to measure 6-“ wide. From the strip sets, square up one end then cut off 2-” section, making piece that measures 2” wide x 6” long. You will need 48 of these pieces. Discard left over piece.
    Now, sew the remaining pieces as shown, with the F in the middle, and a piece of D on either side. Make one more strip set. Press both strip sets well. The strip sets must measure 6-” wide. by WOF long. Square up one end, and cut a 2-“ section., which will measure 2-1/“ x 6-” You will need 24 of these pieces. Discard leftovers" Thanks and hugs from sunny but cool Northern Florida

    OK, I went for a walk and I think I've figured out where to substitute the E and the B. At least I hope I have. Because of the miscuts on the bias diagonal clue, I was short on fabric so had to substitute another pink. I guess I've had an addled day of it all. I had such good contrast on all the other clues and now I don't. I think I should have swapped out the E and F's. Oh well too late to turn back now. *sigh* think I need to eat a little something.
