    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 @[email protected] on you little lady. Love your Red & White combination, it's gorgeous. Happy Birthday to your GS for me.

    [/QUOTE]

    I was sitting here drumming my fingers on the desk watching for the clue! Had the studio all set up & ready to rock, just needed the directions. Read them all thru while they were printing (slow printer!), understood, cut, chain sewed, ironed & then cut again. Walla! Finished for this round! My guess is we're going to start assembling next week, or at least I hope so! Starting to run out of fabric to cut! I can't get any kind of handle on the pattern yet, I'm absolutely baffled by this one! Judy's done a great job of keeping this a mystery, for sure. She's bringing it right down to the wire! I try to start planning the quilting of the quilt as I go along, but I can't envision anything yet at all. The last one popped, I think, with this clue & could plan some quilting for them, but not this one! Maybe next week....
    GS's Birthday party was OK, not used to having 13 kids running around. He's going to be with me this entire week, because of no school. Can't wait! It's already stacking up to be a busy week with Turkey day & hubby will be home for a few days too. Utter pandemonium will prevail this week, so I had to get my clue done in piece & quiet!

    chef, sorry you were a bit confused for a moment, I know it is so hard to do something like this when you are not sure what you are going to end up with.

    Cindy, you sure got those done fast. And to everyone - no, she is not a teacher's pet nor did she have any inside info. LOL

    That's a lot of homework Judy! About thru - like Chef, little confused for a moment, but figured out what was meant. Was in JoAnns today and found a good deal on Fiskar blades. Buy one pack get the second pack free. Got 10 blades for around $2.90/blade. That's cheap here.

    Just wanted to say I have thoroughly enjoyed this "train ride". This is my first mystery project and I must say I have not anticipated anything so much since childhood Christmases! Thank you for hosting this Judy. It has been a really fun project.

    I am a tiny bit confused, I did not label my fabrics so I don't know what is what! I am going to back track and see if I can play Sherlock and figure it out!

    then after I figure it out I am going to make a little cheat sheet for my self with a index card and a swatch of each fabric... I should have done that to begin with!!!!!
    Give a smile away today, someone you meet might need one!

    Thanks everyone for helping me with my addled mind yest. I had just finished sewing the previous clue and was getting a bit stressed. Usually I just sail on through but not this time. I think my other half was about to kill me LOL Walking around talking to myself for over an hour. The dog wishes I would do this more often. She really enjoyed her walk. Will forge ahead. Thanks again. Retta

    I am getting caught up - I have 2 and 3 done. A question - for those of you who did the HSTs using Judy's 'new' ruler method, did you have to do any trimming at all, other than the dog ears?

    I'm short on sleep due to a sore arm/shoulder. Who wants to meet me in the snack area for a cup of flavored coffee? I've got Butter Pecan - not sure if I'll buy it again. Come try some.

    Irish rose, if you made your strips the correct size for the block size needed, there is no trimming other than the dog ears.

    Very pretty. katybob

    Thank you for the quick reply. I made a ruler and apparently I was a hair off because I had to trim my blocks slightly. I made 24 that way and 24 the line drawing way and they were pretty equal in time. I'll see which I like best as we proceed. Okay, off to walk the dogs and then cut my #4 strips.

    Irish Rose, if I do not make it to the snack area for a cup of flavored coffee I will just drive up to Cadillac, I only live about 45 minutes south of you.

    Sulubug I just love your name. You look just like an old neighbor of mine, you could pass for twins. But I think she is older than you.

    I am really enjoying this train ride. This is the first mystery quilt I have ever done. I love this so much I go back and reread the threads, yes I know it is just like watching a rerun, and I chuckle just as much.

    Thank You Judy for doing this for us, as you can tell everyone is really enjoying it. I cannot wait for the next one.

    Hugs to all of you for the entertainment.

    when i did the clue at post 843, my strips were angled the other way. is that going to matter? when i sewed the strips together, i off set each strip 2 inches shorter. was i suppose to sew it so the strips were set two inches longer? when i laid my material down on the 45 degree, my degree mark was slanted to the right, not the left. to fit my material. what did i do wrong. the lst time i have ever cut anything on the 45 degree. thx

    sorry to be sooo dumb.

    Another thought, what if Judy said for everyone to sew their quilt together without anymore instructions. Wouldn't that be interesting to see how many different quilts there would be with all the cuttings being the same? This one sure has everyone guessing, I even tried to cheat and look at some of the other quilt patterns to see if I could figure it out. Nope there was nothing of the sort. Oh, was that cheating, I did not see that rule in the instructions sheet. Sorry. Back to quilting.

    sewNsew, why don't you wait until Judy replies. She is the only one who knows if it will matter or not.

    SewNso, I'd wait for an answer. Strips don't like to be handled too much.

    I didn't mark my fabric either. I did at the start and then when I didn't like it and went with 2 quilts did I remark....NO...So I got out all the instructions and had to go back through and mark everything, then cut, low and behold short, so for this set 1 substitution.- - - - happens I guess?!? Finally all sewed and pressed for each quilt, cut sides even, need to cut the pieces and then will be done. Probably in the morning, then I'll post. Lesson learned....if all else fails "listen and follow directions" imagine that.
